Some of Hollywood's most beautiful women have been given shocking makeovers for a domestic violence campaign.

Images of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Kendall Jenner, have been manipulated to show the women sporting black eyes, cuts and bruises.

It's the work of artist and activist aleXsandro Palombo, created for the 'No Women is Immune from Domestic Violence' project.

Inspired by the International Day for Elimination of Violence, Palombo selected some of the worlds most notable faces to depict as battered victims of abuse.

According to the artist, who has previously recreated A-listers as Simpson's characters, his goal is to encourage victims to break their silence and highlight the fact that all women can be subject to abuse, even those who live the fairytale life of a celebrity.

"The biggest accomplice of violence is the silence, a silence which every year kills or causes permanent disability more than diseases or accidents," he said of his latest creation, which has been shared on social media.

"Domestic violence is a social cancer that knows no boundaries nor social status, it can affect anyone, whether you're an ordinary person or a celebrity.

"To defeat him you need to use the antidote of culture by educating and raising awareness on Respect and Equality. Each of us has do their part to help increase awareness and to change things by any means."

Palombo has previously employed his Neo Pop Art to raise awareness of social issues.

He is also known for his works of Disabled Disney Princesses, Disney Princesses as Breast Cancer Survivors and The Simpsons Go To Auschwitz.
