Amelia Earhart

How To Dress Up Like Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart is a true American heroine. She is one of the few women featured in American history and was a pioneer in aviation. In addition to being an award-winning pilot and the first woman to pilot many historic voyages, she was also an acclaimed author of books about her own experiences. Her disappearance in 1937 was a mystery that still fascinates many. Dressing up like Amelia Earhart is a great testimonial to history and encourages others to learn more about this historical figure.

Dressing up like Amelia Earhart can be done in a variety of ways. You can opt for a dressy Amelia Earhart look or an all-business in-the-cockpit look. Either way, the distinguishing features that will set your costume apart from just a “period” look and make you clearly stand out as Amelia Earhart is the addition of the leather helmet and flying goggles that are typical of pilots of her era.

If you choose to dress up like Amelia Earhart in an everyday outfit or a dressy outfit, you will have a variety of looks to choose from. Flapper dresses were very popular in the 1930s and many of the pictures of Amelia show her in this style. Two piece suits with long straight skirts and a jacket over a blouse was also a common style for her. This was also one of the first times in history when women were beginning to wear pants. Earhart was often photographed in pant suits and pants with a blouse and jacket. She was often shown in bomber jackets and a short tan leather jackets. Her wardrobe was made up of very loose-fitting garments. Scarves were Amelia Earhart’s most commonly chosen accessory.

To dress up like Amelia Earhart, you will need to shy away from colorful clothes and prints. Her wardrobe was mostly of somber colors like navy, shades of brown, tan, khaki and green. Her blouses were mostly plain white.

If you are looking to create an Amelia Earhart at work look, you will need to find a one-piece set of coveralls, similar to what a mechanic would wear today. As she was a pioneer among women, there were no female flying suits available and pictures of her ready for flight show that the suits she wore were very unflattering. Shoes were always flat and utilitarian also. A set of coveralls, the leather helmet and the flying goggles are the three essential items for an Amelia ready-for-flight look.

Despite some rather unfashionable styles, especially when it came to what she wore in the cockpit, Amelia Earhart always had a beaming smile. She looked genuinely happy to do what she was doing, especially in action photos, as opposed to the more formal, publicity shots, which always looked contrived. To help pull off your genuine Amelia Earhart look, smile lots.

Do some research into 1930s era clothing for women. Opt for the most conservative of those items and throw in lots of pants and you have Amelia Earhart’s style. You can easily create a genuine costume that calls to mind a true American hero: Amelia Earhart.

Sophia Loren

How to Dress Like Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren

In the 1950s and 1960s Sophia Loren ignited the Silver Screen with a sexiness that some would argue has yet to be rivaled. The Italian actress was extremely good looking and she had no problem showing what she had. Loren blazed a trail for women everywhere when it came to sex appeal and for that reason there are many who aspire to dress like her.

Not everyone can pull off the Sophia Loren look. It not only takes someone with a great figure, but you will have to have the utmost confidence in yourself as well. Here are some ways you too can ignite a room the Sophia Loren did:

•    Wear lots of red: Loren always added a lot of red to her wardrobe. She had the reputation of being feisty and vivacious and the color red certainly helped bring that to the forefront. Everyone looks a little more daring in red and by you adding it to your wardrobe you are telling the world that you may be down to earth, but you are as lively and sexy as they come. There are few colors that can make the statement that red does, which is why Loren wore the color on an almost daily basis.
•    Show your stuff: One thing Loren did with almost every outfit she wore was show off her cleavage. Sometimes she showed so much it left little to the imagination. Wear outfits and skirts that will accentuate what you have and when you think you are showing enough cleavage, show a little more. No matter what occasion you are dressing for you have to make sure that you find a way to show off your cleavage. That is the true spirit of Loren.
•    Wear halter dresses: Another staple in Loren’s wardrobe was the halter dress. She liked to wear ones that were long and that flared. By wearing this type of dress you are showing, like Loren did, that your spirit is sensual, yet you have the undertones of a playful and very famine women. A halter dress is the perfect garment to bring out both features at the same time.
•    Show off your gams: Along with showing off her cleavage, Loren knew she had great legs and loved to show those off as well. You can accomplish this by wearing some of the same ultra miniskirts as Loren did. If you are not comfortable in super short miniskirts you must try to stay in the skirt family or you risk losing the full effect that you are going after. Accentuate your toned calf muscles in Loren fashion by dawning a great looking pair of high heels.
•    Switch up your hair: Loren always put a lot into her hair but rarely was it the same. She would sometimes wear it up and sometimes wear it down but it always looked as ravaging as the rest of her. Take extra time when styling your hair to ensure it comes out looking its finest.

Again, dressing like Sophia Loren is only the first step in capturing her essence. To complete the effect you will have to work on your confidence over and over again.

Miranda Lambert

How to Dress like Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert

Ever since the 2003 season of the popular television show Nashville Star in which she placed third, Miranda Lambert has been burning up the country music charts. She has been nominated for several Gammy Awards and is due to release her third album in the near future. She has a beauty that matches her sassy personality and she truly is a girl from Texas and dresses that way most of the time. That being said, she can dawn the red carpet with the best of them.

Here are some sure fire ways that you too can dress like Miranda Lambert:

•    Jeans: Like the typical cowgirl, Lambert likes to wear jeans. Most of the time when she is performing on stage it is usually done in jeans. She wears form fitting but doesn’t seem to go too tight and she has been known to wear jeans occasionally that have a couple of rips and tears in them. Be sure when you choose your jeans that you go with the more traditional blue color or lighter and don’t go too tight.
•    Shirts: Most of the shirts that Lambert wears are either tank tops or spaghetti strap shirts. She usually opts for lighter colors like creams and white and the shirts will sometimes have a saying on them. Go with shirts that fit you nicely and if you want to you can even go with a more southern looking short sleeved button down shirt as Lambert has been known to wear them from time to time.
•    Formal: No jeans and shirts here. When hitting the red carpet Lambert looks amazing and likes to wear a dress as opposed to a gown. The dress you select for your big night out should be form fitting, but not too tight, and can range in color from yellow, to white, to dark gray, and ever color in between.
•    Shoes: Though she is a true country girl you will rarely see Lambert sporting cowboy boots. Instead she usually opts of a sexy pair of high heels unless she is on the red carpet. When being formal she goes with a more traditional closed-toe heel that isn’t quite so high. When going formal match the color of the shoes with the dress you wear but feel free to go with an attention grabbing color like red when it comes to the high heels you wear with your jeans and t-shirt.
•    Accessories: When not performing Lambert likes things that hang. She wears a lot of beaded necklaces or even gold chain necklaces that have big pendants on them. She also likes bracelets and earrings that are on the bigger and flashier side. So really anything goes with your accessorizing.
•    Hair and make-up: Lambert has long blonde hair and sweeping bangs. To achieve her look use some body defining hair products and take a little extra time with the styling. When applying your makeup go for the country girl look, which is a more laid back look. Lambert has the unique ability to look as though she isn’t wearing any make-up at all even though everyone knows that she is.

All that remains is for you to learn to play the guitar and perhaps you too can strum your way into America’s heart.

Chris Martin

How to Dress Like Chris Martin

Chris Martin

The band Coldplay has been burning up the charts for several years now. The lead singer of Coldplay is Chris Martin who has a unique style of singing and can play the keyboards with the best of them. Because of the popularity of the band there are many guys these days that want to dress like Martin.

Martin has two very distinct looks and neither is hard to emulate. Follow the tips below and you will easily pull off either or both of Chris Martin’s styles:

EVERYDAY LOOK: Martin’s everyday look is much the same as the way the average guy looks. Here is what it entails:

•    Pants: Here Martin opts for jeans or cargo pants that are of a darker color. When choosing your jeans go for a classic fit or even a lose fit and never go with anything tight.
•    Shirts: When dressing in an everyday manner, Martin’s shirts consist of nothing more than a darker colored t-shirt. He seems to like to stick with dark grays or blacks and rarely strays from this formula.
•    Footwear: When just out and about and dressing like the every man, Martin will simply wear a pair of Converse style sneakers or even flip-flops at times. You can wear whatever is comfortable for you as that is what Martin seems to do.
•    Accessories: Martin is rarely seen without his tell-tale bracelets. He sometimes wears a watch and to complete this look and you should be sure to get yourself a pair of dark sunglasses to wear everywhere you go. You can also get a fitted ball cap and wear it backwards as this is a favorite style of Martin.

ARTISTIC LOOK: This is the look that Martin will sport many times while performing or when he is in the public eye. Here is how you can pull it off:

•    Pants: Black trouser style pants are the trick here. Rarely will he perform in jeans, but whatever he does perform in they will be black.
•    Shirts: When in artistic mode Martin is often seen in long sleeved black shirts. When picking out your black shirt go for any style as Martin has worn them all, including a very artistic long sleeved turtle neck.
•    Footwear: to go with the black pants and black shirt you will want to get, you know it, black shoes. You can go with black Converse style sneakers or a dressier loafer if you want to as Martin has been known to wear both.
•    Accessories: Again Martin has on his bracelets and to copy him properly you should not be shy of them yourself. Leave the sunglasses at home with this look.
•    Hair: Martin likes to keep his hair in a messy and spiky manner. If you have short hair, you can easily do this by using a heavy holding gel and just sort of messing up your hair.

Dressing like Chris Martin isn’t tough to do, but as you can see he likes the dark colors so be sure that you are not going to be outside on a hot day when emulating this rock star.

To dress like Song you have to remember to keep with the light colored theme and always dress in a cheery and happy fashion.

•    Dresses: When Song goes for dresses she chooses those that are typically made of a lighter material and are always a cheery color. She likes reds and yellows and she seems to have fun mixing and matching accessories with her dresses. When choosing your dresses, go for what is comfortable.

Just be sure to stay with bright and happy colors.
•    Casual look: Song can get as laid back as anyone. She is often seen wearing a pair of form fitting cargo pants or even a pair of jeans. She will always top this off with a fun tank top or t-shirt that will have a fun or wild design. She will sometimes go dark with the t-shirts, but more often than not, she will stick with white and accessorize from there.
•    Shoes: Song likes heels. Her heels are never too high, but no matter what she is wearing it seems that heel accompany the fashion. When choosing your heels pick a color that will compliment the clothing that you are wearing and depending on the fashion you are wearing you can go either open toe or close toe.
•    Accessories: Song likes to accessorize. She will often accessorize a t-shirt with a jacket or vest and has also been known to wear leggings with her dresses. When it comes to jewelry you can go kind of freelance here because Song does. Sometimes she will be sporting hoop earrings and still other times she will be wearing a pair of less noticeable earrings. She also wears bracelets and gold necklaces quite often so feel free to do so as well.
•    Hair and make-up: Song’s hair is elegant yet simple. It is long and straight and she is very rarely seen with it up. Do your hair by either parting it in the middle or to one side and don’t get crazy with the hair products. To apply your make-up like Song go with lighter colors but be sure to accentuate your cheek bones as Song does. She also opts for a lighter colored lip stick over a darker or bright color and to pull off the look you should too.

Now just practice flashing a huge smile wherever you go and your transformation into Brenda Song will be all but complete.

Ashley Greene

How to Dress Like Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene is probably best known for her role in the 2008 blockbuster hit movie Twilight in which she played the clairvoyant Alice Cullen. Anyone who has seen the movie knows that Greene’s character in the movie dressed in a dark and mysterious manner, but the real Ashley Greene dresses so far to the other end of the fashion spectrum it is almost laughable. In real life Greene dresses in a bright and cheery way that carries her with style and grace on the red carpet and simply around the town.

If you too want to emulate the style of the real life Ashley Greene here is what you do:

•    Dresses: Like her character in the movie Twilight Greene likes to wear a lot of dresses. But unlike the Cullen character, Greene wears bright and cheery colored dresses and not dark and depressing colors. She is often seen wearing colors such as yellows, blues, and other vibrant colors so when choosing your dresses go with the fun and happy colors.
•    Casual: Greene has been spotted off the scene with a simple pair of jeans that she likes to wear topped with a cute tank top. She will finish off this look with a light jacket and again opts for the opposite of her on-screen personality and stays with cheery colors. When you go casual just remember to be comfortable and happy and you should hit the nail on the head.
•    On the red carpet: When Greene is attending a red carpet gala event she is usually seen wearing a long gown that is made of lighter materials that is somewhat flowing. Here she tends to show off a bit of her cleavage and likes to wear gowns that are sleeveless or even strapless. The colors vary, but she usually sticks with the darker blues or goes red.
•    Shoes: The shoes that Greene wears are of course dictated by what she is wearing. When casual, she usually just wears sneakers or flip-flops. When you get your casual footwear go for darker colors that are not too noticeable. When dressing to the hilt, go with what Greene does and get a nice pair of lace up heels that match the dress or gown you will be wearing.
•    Accessories: Aside of a conservative pair of earrings, Greene really doesn’t wear too much in the way of accessories. When you go to accessorize, go for the lighter side of it all.
•    Hair and make-up: In the movie, Greene goes short and wild and again in real life she is the polar opposite. Do your hair down and give it just a hint of body using some gel but aside of that don’t get crazy. Your make-up should be done with lighter colors but should take you some time. Greene has a very nice look, but you can definitely tell she uses a lot of make-up, though she always goes for a more conservative look.

When dressing like Greene remember, you can’t think about the character she played because if that is your model you will not just miss the bull’s-eye, but you will miss the entire target all together.

Aly and AJ

How to Dress Like Aly and AJ

Aly and AJ

Aly and AJ have been on the music scene since 2004 and their careers continue to blossom into film as well as more music. They recently re-named their band to 78violet and are planning the release of their third album soon which they say will be more on the rocker side. Their fun style and flare have many young ladies across America wanting to emulate their looks and doing so couldn’t be easier.

Because they are sisters and because they share the spotlight in the band, Aly and AJ pretty much dress the same. Here is what to wear when you too want to look like these two music icons:

•    Shirts: These two sisters typically like to wear either from fitting khaki pants or jeans. While the khaki pants that they wear can vary in color rather greatly, they almost always wear a light blue color when it comes to their jeans. They always wear form fitting, but you will never find these two sisters flaunting what they have and wearing jeans or pants that are too tight.
•    Shirts: The duo likes to wear fun and vibrant colored shirts. These shirts can vary greatly in styles but usually they will go with multicolored tank tops or t-shirts that may even sport a cool design. If you decide to go with a longer sleeved shirt, then layer it with a rocker looking vest that contrasts the color of the shirt.
•    Dresses: When attending interviews off the stage you can sometimes catch the sister in dresses. These dresses are usually on the shorter side and are solid colors that range from sunny yellow to dark blue and every color in between.
•    Shoes: These two are seen in a number of different types of shoes, but more often than not they are wearing an open-toe pair of heels. The heels are not too high so when choosing yours, be sure that you can still move around in great comfort.
•    Accessories: Aly and AJ go big and bold when it comes to accessorizing. They are often spotted with big belts, big bracelets, big necklaces, and big earrings. The point is; big. They also wear the occasional scarf and even a loosely tied neck tie. When you choose your accessories, the important thing to remember is to have fun with it.
•    Hair and make-up: Both Aly and AJ have long blonde hair and style it rather simply. Some added curl can go a long way, but above all else, never wear it up, as the two always have their hair down. When it comes to make-up Aly and AJ have the ability to look as though they aren’t wearing a lot, even though they probably are, and pull of the all-natural look with the greatest of ease. When applying your make-up go light and stay more on the conservative side.

Now you can go out and get some voice lessons to truly be like these talented sisters. At least for now you can look like them.

Cate Blanchett

How to Dress Like Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is the daring Australian actress whose list of films covers a wide spectrum of roles. However in real life, her look is much more classy and refined. She sizzles on the red carpet, and looks polished and clean in every day affairs.

Her style is unique and doesn’t follow the trends. First throw all out preconceived notions of what is trendy and hot at the moment. Cate’s attitude is breezy and unfazed as to what people think of her, and this reflects in the clothing that she chooses.

Cate has a wide palette of desired colors. From neutrals like gray to bold colors like red, she has been seen in every color on the spectrum. Her most stunning outfits paint the red carpet in a rainbow of sparkles, plunging necklines, exposed backs, and flowing fabrics.

Remember that her style is never the same. To get some of Cate’s looks, go for the dressy, red carpet style. At an Italian fashion show this year, Cate was wearing a floral Armani Prive calf-length gown. The dress was black, with long and feathery flowers splashed across the front. In order to copy this exact look, find a dress with a boat neck collar and tiny sleeves. She pairs this dress with chunky silver pumps and a small silver clutch.

At a Vogue event in Sydney, Cate’s dress of choice was very different from the Armani. She opts for a bold scarlet dress this time, an eye-popping color. This dress falls down to the ankles and cinches at the feet, while the sleeves are long, extending to the wrists. The only exposed skin is her plunging neckline that stops at the empire waist band, giving the dress a mysterious sexiness by revealing just the right amount of skin. She adds matching scarlet sandals and three strands of chunky pearls as her only accessories. Her look is simple and classic.

One of Cate’s most stunning dresses was the one she wore to the 2007 SAG Awards. Her golden goddess dress catches every beam of light and casts her in a shimmering and radiant glow. The dress falls over her body like liquid, complementing her every curve. To pull off this same look, find a metallic gold dress that falls to the ankles in loose lines. This dress has a v-neck neckline and empire waist, while the straps are a bit thicker than your normal spaghetti strap. Cate wears a long silver medallion that falls right at the high empire waist, and crystal studded heels by Armani Prive. Sweep your hair back into a soft and feminine ponytail like Cate’s. This updo will show off the length of your neck, while drawing attention to the detail of the dress around the neckline.

Whatever dress style you choose, remember that Cate is never seen in anything that she doesn’t wear well. Even if most critics find her clothing sometimes unflattering, the way Cate carries herself causes her to look flawless in whatever she wears. Be confident, smile knowingly, and act like you look good no matter what you put on. That is the key to dressing like Cate Blanchett.

Brad Pitt

How to Dress Like Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has been breaking hearts and enjoying the stardom of being every girls fantasy since he emerged as a young actor in Hollywood. His boyish good looks, charming smile, and sexy physique have caused many women to daydream that one day they too will find someone as handsome as he is. He has many looks, and can turn heads whether he is on the red carpet or running errands on a Sunday. If you want women to fall over you the way they do over Brad, then start copying his look with a few tips below.

He always wears solids. Rarely do you see Brad in a bold print. Solid colors are classic, and easy to pair with other items. It is wise to stock up on button down shirts, shorts, and pants that are solids, since they never go out of style and can be worn with anything in your closet. When you wear these solids, make sure they are neutral colors. Brad wears a lot of white, black, gray, beige, and muted reds and blues. You will never see him standing out in bold lime green or orange colors.

Brad has a great physique. In Fight Club, Brad flaunts his body in almost every scene, and you can get that same tone in your body by doing a lot of high intensity cardio and weight training to get that lean and muscular look. In every day life, Brad shows off his well-sculpted arms and flat abs by pairing snug jeans with a tight t-shirt in a neutral color.

Brad would not look as polished if he didn’t always make sure his clothes were well laundered and well pressed. He also goes for quality over quantity. All of Brad’s clothes fit him impeccably, and therefore his attire is always flawless. Always go for higher quality clothing when looking like Brad Pitt. Look for tighter stitching and a smooth and sturdy collar. For the sleeves, make sure that they don’t hug your arms, but that there isn’t too much extra fabric, either. Then before you leave the house, make sure your clothes are clean and ironed.

Many women dream of running their fingers through Brad’s hair. He usually keeps it short and styles it to be a bit spiky. Most of the time his hair is very blond. If your hair isn’t as blond as Brad’s then you will need to get a few highlights.

Brad is always sporting sunglasses. Shades definitely add to the sex appeal of a man. You can opt for a sexy and ultra modern black pair of Dior, or a more casual aviator look.

Last but not least is Brad’s dazzling smile. No look would be complete without the smile that causes millions of women to swoon. Get those pearly whites extra sparkly with a trip to the dentist for a cleaning and whitening.

No doubt that Brad Pitt is one of the sexiest men to ever walk the planet. But his style isn’t too difficult to mimic, and if you take some of his fashion advice, maybe you too can have the ladies falling at your feet in adoration.


How to dress like an Artist


Artists are all about being creative. You might think that their need to leave their artistic mark ends with a canvas, a lump of clay, or a sheet of paper. This is not the case. You can spot an artist from across the street by the way they dress.

Artists tend to extend their artistic chops to every area of their lives, including their wardrobes. They can’t stop creating, even if they try. Everything they touch, own, and wear becomes a medium of individual expression. It’s the artist’s way.

Take an artist’s clothes for example. Artists always look like they just stepped off of some bohemian runway. Their clothes make a statement, whether it’s politically, socially, or personally. The funky, unique style of an artist is craved by many, both artists and non-artists alike.

Artists manage to achieve that coveted style without breaking the bank. Yet they still look as if they only wear one-of-a-kind couture that would set you back a few bucks. However, just the opposite is true. Artists make the most out of what they have. They take ordinary t-shirts, jeans, pants and dresses and make them into something special. They use scissors, paint, and anything else they can get their hands on to turn that ratty old shirt into something spectacular. They don’t call them ‘starving artists’ for nothing.

While artists love to make their clothing more unique by adding their own special touch, there are also other tell-tale signs of a person being an artist. If you know these things, you can do them too, in order to truly give the impression that you are an artist.

•    Forget about the details. Most artists do not spend time on seeking out jewelry to go with an outfit. They wear jewelry that is unique and stands out.
•    Quite often their outfits are un-ironed and have a thrown together look, because in fact they were thrown together. If you spend too much time on matching details, you will give away the fact, that you are not quite artist material.
•    Many artists wear dark colors and often are not quite in the right size. The starving artist look often means shopping in places like second-hand stores and vintage stores and choosing things with style. Sometimes they don’t perfectly fit, but adjustments can be made.
•    Artists often tend to have a bohemian look to their clothing. Flowing outfits in a variety of colors are perfect for an artist look.

The most important part of dressing like an artist is letting your creativity show through what you are wearing. Whether you have a T-shirt, jacket or skirt, an artist is bound to change it to make it unique. Paint, adornments and rips help them to make it their own. Because they are not confined by the typical fashion rules, they will also mix and match styles, textures, fabrics and even fads to get something completely new.

Dressing like an artist is about being resourceful and using what you have. Let your imagination soar and create artistic outfits that are completely unique. Just remember to always be relaxed enough to get paint on your clothes.

Anna Kornikova

How to Dress Like Anna Kournikova

Anna Kornikova

Anna Kournikova is famous all over the globe for many reasons. Her rocking tennis body is the envy of many women, and the fantasies of many men; her signature cascading blonde locks make her stand out in a crowd; and her high profile relationship with Enrique Iglesias all work to thrust her into the spotlight. You may love her, you may hate her, but Anna Kournikova has style and finesse that is uniquely hers. You can copy this Russian beauty’s look by following the steps below.

Let’s start with the hair. If you don’t already have a shining blonde mane, then you will need to find a wig, or get hair extensions for a more realistic effect. Extensions will be the very expensive option, since you will need to first buy the hair, and then find a salon that will put them in for you. Be sure to keep your hair well conditioned to maintain the shine. Anna usually wears her hair up in a ponytail during the day. For nighttime, she lets it fall down her back in long, loose waves.

Anna has a distinct sun-kissed glow. Get this same look the healthy way by applying self tanner. Be sure to exfoliate your skin first to remove the dead skin cells, otherwise you may end up with dark patches and an uneven skin tone.

Anna has a phenomenally fit body due to years on the tennis courts. Because of this, she can wear very little clothing and still look fantastic. Whether you opt for an all white tennis outfit, skimpy bikini, or little black dress for the evening, keep your accessories at a minimum. Anna doesn’t wear much jewelry, and her look is understated and sexy as a result.

When it comes to clothes, find a cute tennis skirt with a matching racer back tank. Anna tends to wear sporty outfits on and off the court, so don’t limit your outfit to only the gym. Be sure that everything you buy is form fitting. When looking for a bikini, buy the skimpiest one in the store. Anna has a hot beach body and likes to show it off. When it comes to a night on the town, Anna’s pick is a little black dress. Pick out a short one that shows a healthy amount of your legs, and pair them with some short heels. Anna is rarely seen in stilettos.

Get a simple but classy bag. Anna doesn’t overdo it on the accessories, but can always be seen with a practical yet sophisticated purse. She has been spotted carrying the Louis Vuitton Multicolor 30 Speedy to various tennis matches. This is a very informal bag that doesn’t stand out too much and will go with anything.

As far as makeup goes, Anna favors the natural look. By day she usually wears some smudged black liner, mascara, and light gloss. At night she opts to vamp it up by adding some bold red lipstick. Less is more when making up your face like Anna.

From hitting the gym to religiously using self-tanner, it takes a bit more effort to pull off the Anna Kournikova look. But by following these steps, you’re sure to stop traffic like she does.

America Ferrera

How to Dress Like America Ferrera

America Ferrera

America Ferrera is best known for her lead role in the television series Ugly Betty. She also is widely known for her role in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants parts one and two. She has a classic look to her and never seems to try to be more than she really is. It is for that reason that many young women these days aspire to dress like the young actress.

Whether dressing for comfort or for the red carpet, Ferrera always encompasses the All American Girl look and pulls it off with the greatest of ease. Here are some ways that you too can look just as natural and great as Ferrera:

•    Casual: Ferrera is often seen in a pair of form fitting jeans and a t-shirt while she is just walking around. This is an easy look to mimic and also a very comfortable one. Be sure to choose jeans that are indeed form fitting, but that are not too tight as this is not characteristic of Ferrera. Go with lighter colors for the t-shirts as this seem to be a favorite of Ferrera. When in casual mode you can go with sneakers, flip-flops, or even a pair of sensible heals as Ferrera has been seen in all three while dressing down.
•    Formal: Ferrera is a big fan of longer dresses and gowns when it comes time to strut her stuff on the red carpet. When choosing your dress go with one that comes down to at least your knees and go with darker colors as this will have a slimming and elongating effect. Ferrera must love purple and blue as she has been seen in numerous dresses and gowns that are colored so. Be sure that the dress or gown you choose is form fitting, but also be sure that it flatters your figure and isn’t too tight. Go with a nice pair of heels that of course match the color of the dress or gown and that also have an open toe.
•    Accessories: Perhaps because she is such an all natural girl, Ferrera wears virtually no accessories. Sometimes at a formal setting she can be spotted with a bracelet on and she usually wears very low key earrings, but other than that, nothing really to speak of. When you think of accessorizing your outfit, go very low key to emulate Ferrera.
•    Hair and make-up: Ferrera has a darker skin tone that the average woman and does not complicate her beautiful tone with a lot of make-up. When you do your make-up, go light and aim for the natural look. When it comes to your hair, wear it down as Ferrera more times than not has hers down. To get the complete Ferrera look, part your hair on one side and use some spray gel to give it some extra body and bounce but be sure to stay on the natural side.

To truly be like Ferrera, just be yourself. She is easily one of the most natural beauties in Hollywood today and certainly proves that women with curves can be beautiful too.

Achieving the Mandy Moore look is as much about confidence as it is about what you put on. She seems to have a spring in her step no matter where she is or what she is wearing. Keeping that in mind, here are some tips on how you too can dress like Mandy Moore:

•    Be colorful: Moore is often seen in many bright colored outfits. It is not uncommon for her to wear yellows, pinks, peaches, and any other color that gives off a bright persona. These types of colors seem to mirror her personality and she is as bright and cheery as the colors she wears.
•    Dresses: Moore loves to be casual with dresses. She is often spotted wearing a strapless sun dress that comes down just above her knees. When you go sundress shopping remember to go with fun, bright colors. The dress should fit you nicely, but it should not be tight. Every now and then get funky with your dresses and go for a multi-colored one as Moore has been known to do this from time to time.
•    Formal wear: Here is the exception to the bright and cheery color rule. Moore often shows up at a red carpet event wearing a tasteful black dress. Make sure you choose a dress and not a gown as Moore prefers to be comfortable while walking down the red carpet as opposed to being trailed by part of a flowing gown.
•    Shoes: Moore loves her shoes. The shoes she will wear will be dictated by the outfit she has on. She usually wears heels of some sort and has been spotted in high heels, pumps, flats, and sandals. When you choose your colors of shoes, make sure you are matching them to your outfit like Moore does.
•    Accessories: Moore seems to prefer bigger earrings that hang down as opposed to studded earrings. She can also be found wearing a sensible gold chain from time to time.
•    Hair and Make-up: Moore’s hair style is usually ultra simple. Part your hair in the middle and then style it lightly. If you are feeling brash, you can give it some loose curls as Moore will sometimes do. When you go for your make-up bag, grab some darker rouge to help bring out your cheekbones as Moore does. Go easy on the lipstick and use lighter colors that don’t scream for attention to be drawn to your lips. Above all else, try to maintain the natural look.

All that is left for you to do is to practice your singing and acting and you too can be like Mandy Moore; at least in the way you dress.

If you want to dress like Pink then you have to be ready to get a little bit crazy. On her most normal day of fashion Pink can be more outrageous than most on their wildest day. Here are some ways that you can achieve the Pink look:

•    Pants and shirt look: Pink often wears a combination of pants and a shirt when she performs on stage. Her pants consist of loose fitting cargo pants and her shirt is always one that shows her stomach. Her color combinations can vary greatly so here is your opportunity to have some fun. You can mix camouflage cargo pants with a black top or black cargo pants with a loud and colorful top, it’s really up to you and your mood. Footwear for this combination can consist of combat boots or high-top sneakers but leave the high heels in the closet. Accessorize the look with a number of flashy necklaces and be sure that you have on some bracelets too.
•    Dresses: Another way to pull off the Pink look is to wear one of her favorites; a dress.

With these types of dresses there is almost always some pink in them perhaps to honor her name.

Accessorize with sashes and belts if you like and wear some bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that grab attention as well.
•    Hats: No matter what type of Pink look you are going after you can add to it with a hat. Pink likes to wear a lot of different types of hats and can be spotted in derby hats and baseball hats too. Wear your baseball hat with the bill to the side to achieve the perfect look.
•    Hair and make-up: Pink typically wears her hair short and gives it a lot of attitude. You can do this by spiking your hair in certain places and simply messing it up in others and getting some firm holding gel to help you keep it in place makes the process a whole lot easier. A nice touch is to put some pink highlights in your hair as Pink does this quite often. For your make-up go heavy or light depending on your mood because Pink goes heavy at times and ultra light at others.

To complete the illusion, become a vegetarian and join PETA and you will all set.

How to Dress Like Taylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen

One of the most popular new shows on television today is the show Gossip Girl. Of all the characters on the show, one of the more popular is Jenny Humphrey who is played by Taylor Momsen. At 16 years old she is quickly becoming one of the most envied young women on television today.  For this reason there are now many younger teens that want to look like her.

Momsen has a very contemporary look and is usually dressed to the nines no matter where she goes. Here are some different ways in which you too can look like this future diva:

•    Short dresses: Momsen like to wear a lot of short dresses. These dresses are on the loose fitting side and tend to even poof out just a bit. As far as coverage goes she tends to go with the ones that cover less rather than more. Be sure that you choose dresses that don’t go down any further than the top of your knees. When choosing your colors go light and bright and stick to yellows, beiges, and white.
•    Artistic look: Momsen often looks like a true artist when she is just out walking around. To accomplish this you need to go with darker colors and wear a typical artistic outfit like Momsen does. Start with a pair of dark tights and then wear a white shirt and top it all off with a black leather jacket. Don’t forget to wear the sunglasses that look like bug eyes with this look.
•    Accessories: You have a lot to choose from in this department as Momsen likes to accessorize her stuff. A favorite accessory of hers is a scarf and she makes it look great no matter what she has on. When picking out your scarves be sure that they contrast in color with whatever it is you are wearing. You can also go with any number of different purses to tie in an outfit as Momsen likes them all. As far as jewelry goes, Momsen likes to wear a good amount of colored bracelets, hanging necklaces, and earrings that hang somewhat low.
•    Hair and make-up: At times Momsen’s hair is prim and proper and to get this look you need only part to one side and use your body enhancing products sparingly. Still there are other times where the young star has a serious case of bed head, though it is always intentional. To get that bed head look just towel dry your hair before you go to sleep and in the morning you will be all set. When applying your make-up go with dark red coloring for your lips and be sure to use a lot of darker colors around your eyes. Plan on spending some time in front of the maker-up mirror as Momsen may be a teenager, but she wears enough make-up to pass for someone ten years older.

Pulling off this contemporary look isn’t always easy, but if done in the proper manner you will have more than one guy checking you out as you walk down the street.

Emily Browning

How to Dress Like Emily Browning

Emily Browning

Emily Browning is a 20 year old actress who was born in Australia and is best known for her part as Violet Baudelaire in the hit movie Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Her latest role has her playing a part in the movie Uninvited and it seems that this young actress’s career is going to go ahead full throttle. Browning has an elegant yet simple way of dressing and for the many women that admire her, looking like her really isn’t all that hard.

Browning does not dress that much differently than the average woman might which makes her style an easy one to copy. Here are the different ways that you too can emulate this Hollywood starlet:

•    Short dresses: Browning is a big fan of short dresses. She seems to wear these the most when she is not filming and they range in style from strapless to sleeveless. She seems to prefer lighter colors such as white and beige but she has also been known to sport a black dress or two. When choosing your dresses you want to make sure that they don’t come down too far and should never go below just above the knees. While you can go longer if you wish, that won’t be accomplishing the Browning look.
•    Jeans and shirts: Another favorite way that Browning has to dress is in good old jeans and t-shirts. She seems to like what many of the younger crowd these days does and goes for skinny jeans much of the time. If you do not like skinny jeans, then a pair of tight fitting jeans will certainly do the trick. Her t-shirts tend to be plain so if it is hot out you can go with a plain white shirt or any other color on the lighter side of the color spectrum. When it is cold out you can do what Browning does and go for a multicolored sweater or even a solid colored long sleeved shirt. Unfortunately there is just no getting away from those skinny jeans.
•    Shoes: Lace up style heels are Browning’s pick of the litter when it comes to shoes. No matter what she is wearing these types of heels will accompany the outfit. She always matches the color of the shoes with the outfit as should you but again; make sure that you are in heels.
•    Accessories: Browning doesn’t really go all out in this department. If you do decide to accessorize you should take a page out of Browning’s book and go very low profile. Aside of some bracelets and maybe a nice toned down pair of earrings; Browning is seen in little else.
•    Hair and make-up: Browning is about 50/50 when it comes to putting her hair up and leaving it down. Either way, her straight hair makes for an easy going hair style so when you do your hair, don’t go crazy with the gels and the hair spray. Simple is better. As for make-up you should go for a more natural look on most fronts. The exception here is the lips. While she doesn’t go with fire red, Browning is a bit bold on the color she chooses for her lip stick. Feel free to accentuate your lips as well, just don’t go overboard.

Now you are set to go out and conquer the world looking like Emily Browning, the confidence, well that’s up to you.

Nick Jonas

How to Dress Like Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas is the lead singer of the Jonas Brothers Band that features the three brothers singing all kinds of poppy music on the Disney Channel and beyond. The group’s fame has lead them all the way to their own television show on the Disney Channel called JONAS. Among teenagers there is probably no other male artist today that has the popularity that Nick Jonas does with the younger ladies. Add that to the fact that he has dated –or at least was rumored to have dated- Miley Cyrus (Niley) and it is no wonder why so many teenage boys now want to dress like him.

Jonas has a classic cool look about him and seems to resemble some of the rockers of yesteryear but he always puts his own flair on the style as well. Here are some ways that you can go about dressing like Nick Jonas:

•    Skinny jeans: Like many teenagers these days, Jonas like to go with skinny jeans. If you are not a fan of skinny jeans you will need to go with a tight pair of jeans otherwise the look is instantly lost. Stick with darker colors when selecting your skinny jeans as that is what Jonas is usually wearing.
•    Shirts and tops: Jonas likes to layer his shirts and tops and will usually wear an undershirt followed by a t-shirt and then top it all off with a light jacket. The jacket should be vintage and lightweight and you should leave it unbuttoned to get the full effect. If the jacket has a collar, be sure to go classic Jonas style and ‘pop’ up the collar. You can also go with another one of Jonas’ favorite styles and wear a muscle shirt that is sleeveless and looks like it came out of the seventies. When Jonas does this style shirt he usually has an odd pattern like horizontal stripes and he never wears what are known as ‘wife beaters.’
•    Shoes: This is the easiest part of Jonas’ ensemble to nail. All you need is a pair of Converse high tops that are a lighter color and you will nail the Nick Jonas shoe look. Jonas wears his Converse with just about every outfit he has.
•    Accessories: Jonas likes to accessorize and does so in a wide variety of ways. Sometimes Jonas will sport his now tell-tail scarf that he sometimes let hang and other times wraps around his neck. Other times Jonas likes to wear a button down shirt and top it off with a loosely tied neck tie. His neck ties will range from a traditional color like red or navy blue on one night and then a wild and whacky color like lime green on another, it really just depends on the outfit he is wearing. He also has a number of necklaces he likes to wear from time to time. So the point is to go with something to decorate your neckline and you can’t miss.

No just practice his famous jump that he does on stage and maybe get some voice lessons and you too will be driving the girls crazy.

Marilyn Monroe

How to Dress Like Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

In the middle of the last century there was no bigger star or sex symbol than Marylyn Monroe. She was so popular that she even got to sing Happy Birthday to then President of the United States, John F. Kennedy.  She was a brilliant actress that unfortunately couldn’t seem to shed her ‘dumb blonde’ look and so her roles were limited. What she did achieve in her short life though was the admiration of women everywhere. Still to this day over 40 years after her tragic passing she is loved and admired by women of all ages. For this reason many women want to emulate her and learn how to dress like her.

To capture the essence of Marilyn Monroe you have to go after the more simplistic look and have the ability to make it look amazing as Monroe did. Here are some tips to help you dress like Marilyn Monroe:

•    Go with dresses: Monroe often wore dresses and anyone who knows the famous seen of her white dress blowing up knows why. While there are some shots of her in pants and even jeans, for the most part she was a dress girl. When you choose your dresses go with the style of dress that is more form fitting on the top and flows out at the bottom. Don’t just go with just white either as Monroe wore a number of different colors. You can try all sorts of pastel colors here but stay away from dark as Monroe wasn’t a fan of it. Stick to pinks, yellows, and anything else that is bright and cheery.
•    Very high heels: Monroe had great legs and used a very high heel to accentuate this fact. Because she wore dresses all the time, she wore heels all the time, though it has been said that she always wore heels, even when she was being her most casual in jeans. Choose heels that have a closed toe for the most part and make sure that the color compliments the outfit you are wearing.
•    Accessories: Monroe was a simple girl here. She usually wore a simple string of pearls, some chandelier earrings and nothing else. Make sure that your earrings sport diamonds as Monroe’s always did and never forget what she said, ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.’
•    Hair and make-up: Cut your hair shoulder length and bleach it blonde. Give it some added style and flare by giving it loose or tight curls. Wearing your hair this way will give you that ‘blonde bombshell look.’ Wear plenty of make-up but always try to achieve a look of not having too much on with the exception of your lips. Here you will want to go with a bright red that draws attention to you. Monroe had wonderfully long eyelashes and if you don’t, you can always wear false ones.

Now simply add a little wiggle to your hips when you walk and make your voice as sultry as possible and your transformation into Marilyn Monroe will be complete.

Fred Astaire

How to Dress Like Fred Astaire

Fred Astaire

It is hard to say the word dance and not think of Fred Astaire. His brilliant career spanned over seven decades and saw him performing on the stages of Broadway all the way to the Silver Screen. Even today, many years after his passing, there are countless Fed Astaire Dance Academies that teach people from all walks of life to be just a bit lighter on their feet.

When it came to style, Astaire had one all his own. He was never seen in a casual dress and usually sported a tuxedo or a classic suit. Some even joke that he probably slept in his tuxedo but the probable reason behind his always impressive dress is that he was a true gentleman and always wanting to look his best. To dress like Astaire, you too have to look your best:

•    The suit look: Wearing a suit was about as casual as Fred Astaire ever got. When you choose your suit make sure that it has a classic and comfortable fit. The undershirt should always be long sleeved and white. The pants should have a crease in the middle and should come down to the laces or top of your shoes. The jacket should also be a classic cut. If you go with a jacket that has fancy lapels you will be missing the look. Astaire always wore a classic cut regular looking jacket. As for the colors, stick with dark. Astaire had been known to occasionally wear a white suit but for the most part he was always wearing a darker color. This was accentuated by the black and white coloring of the movie screen in the days before color so if you wear a suit that is too bright, the effect will be lost.
•    The tuxedo look: Because he was such a revered actor Astaire was often seen at all of the gathering of the who’s who in Hollywood. Because of that fact Astaire was often in a tuxedo. Choose your tuxedo by going with the most classic look that the tux shop has to offer. Always go with black and make sure that the tux shirt is of course white. In classic form Astaire always finished off his tuxedo look with a small bow tie.
•    Shoes and ties: This is about the only spot on Astaire’s wardrobe that allows you to have any changeability. For shoes Astaire mostly wore classic black shoes with laces, but there were times that he did wear black and white saddle shoes with laces. Getting a pair of saddle shoes could help you to spruce up the look just a bit without straying too far from the formula. He also wore a variety of neck ties. Now this only applies to the suit look, but Astaire wore all sorts of neck ties and anything from a bow tie, to a polka dot tie to a solid color tie will do the trick. Be careful not to go too modern with the color and stay far away from pastels.

All that remains for you to complete the Fed Astaire look is to get a walking cane and a top hat if you so desire, put a spring in your step, and get really good at whistling while you walk.
