In our country, celebrity idolization is a religion in
itself. There are people who devote their lives to walking, talking and
dressing like their favorite celebrities. But in this day and age, sheer
imitation of your favorite celebrity will make you a fool in the sight of your
peers. The key idea is to take “inspiration” from celebrity styles and
incorporate them into your everyday wardrobe.
Celebrities are the best source
of style inspiration, especially their public appearances and random shots from
their day to day life, because during their normal days they try to look put
together but in a normal way. This is what we all are striving to achieve.
Here are some tips to bear in mind when you are attempting
to imitate a celebrity look:
Rather than change your entire style, pick a
celebrity whose style is similar to yours. In this case, the appealing part
might be the fact that the celebrity looks more put together while attempting
to your same style and you can examine their dressing to figure out where you
are going wrong.
Dont break your bank by attempting to buy the
same things that the celebrity wears, instead hunt for similar pieces that are
affordable and incorporate them to create the style of choice. There are sites
that sell outfits that are similar to celebrity styles. An example is koovs.com
Keep the event in mind. If you are going
somewhere with your family elders in attendance, it would be best to avoid
dressing up in leather pants or ripped denims. But you can always take
inspiration for indian wear from celebrities as well. Some popular look right
now are Sonakshi’s look in R…Rajkumar and Deepika’s from Ramleela.
Things that you can try to copy are their
hairstyles, dressing style, and makeup styles. Most celebrities dress up in a
way that best highlights their whole attitude about life and their dressing
reflects that. So make sure that you have the attitude to pull off the looks. There are gazillions of makeup tutorials on youtube and other blogs that can help one achieve all the celeb looks they desire.
Never ever try to imitate an entire look by a
celebrity. This will be quickly identifiable by other people who pay some
attention to the current celebrity trends. Instead, take the celebrity look and
add elements of yourself to make it personalized.
Just because a celebrity wears a trend, does not
make it a great one. Celebrities are people too, and some of them have bad
taste in style. So make sure that you are not following a trend that is hated
by everyone. Vidya Balan and the heavy Sabyasachi Kanjeevarams during Cannes
2013 is a classic example.
Just because a trend or outfit looks good on a
celebrity does not mean that it will look just as great on you. Before wearing
something out onto the streets or to a function, do a trial run and really look
at yourself. Does it look great on you? Get the opinion from your family and
friends as well, but the first and foremost, make sure that you love what you
are wearing. If it doesn't feel right to you, it probably isn't right for you.
You do not always need to follow the current
celebrities for style inspirations. There are some classic styles like Audrey
Hepburn, Grace Kelley, or Elizabeth Taylor whose style never goes out of vogue.
Or closer home, there are style icons like Rekha whose avatar never goes out of
