The Reimagined Kimye & Donald Trump Nativity Scene Is Just What 2016 Calls For

It's no secret that people worship celebrities, so it was only a matter of time that some of the most notable names of 2016 got plopped into their very own Nativity scene. The artistic interpretations of the birth of Jesus, which decorate homes during Christmastime, has received a pop culture reimagination, complete with stars you know and maybe (or maybe not) love.

Among these stars include Kim Kardashian, Prince Harry, and President-elect (and, apparently, Kanye West's BFF?) Donald Trump. Appropriately, Kardashian and West's baby Saint is the one laying in the manger in this interpretation, wearing a tee shirt that says "Born to rule." (Trump is not wearing such a tee shirt.) It also features Easter eggs for people who have their finger on the pulse of celebrity news.

The creative Christmas scene is courtesy of Lyst, the world's largest online fashion site. The site worked with a look-alike production team at Alison Jackson to create a scene filled with actors who could pass for the most talked about stars of 2016. It's quite the impressive feat.

The look-alikes in this photo are so accurate I thought that Lyst somehow got Kimye onboard for this photoshoot. You have to appreciate the little details, like Kardashian's set-to-selfie phone and West's Yeezy-like sneakers.

There's so much going on in this photo, but let's first examine the major players. Obviously, Kardashian is snapping a selfie while West stares stoically at the camera. Meanwhile, President-elect Trump's mouth is held in his signature "drunk fish" pose, while his fellow "Wise Man" Simon Cowell gets ready to present baby Saint with an Olly Murs album. Prince Harry's gift might be the greatest of all: a box set of Suits, in honor of new girlfriend and Suits actress Meghan Markle. The angel doesn't represent a specific person, but she is rocking wings and a Victoria's Secret bra — a la the models at the fashion show.

Here, the Wise Men present their gifts to baby Saint. Forget gold, frankincense, and myrrh: Saint's looking at cash, British pop star records, and a USA series he could probably just watch on Netflix. Meanwhile, the guiding light of the angel is filing her nails on the roof of the manger.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
