Have you ever wondered what makes our favorite celebs look hot and glamorous all year long? The answer is simple; stylists.
While it’s true that non-famous people like us can also style up in our everyday lives, celebrities and renowned personalities do have an ace up their sleeve when it comes to creating the latest trends. It’s hard not to imagine in times like these how you, too, could have rocked the front pages of fashion mags and internet forums with a professional stylist by your side who’s getting paid to create inspirational outfits for you.
But fret not! Just because you don’t have a stylist doesn’t mean you don’t actually have a stylist. You don’t need the big names of the fashion industry on your payroll to get inspired by their styles.
So if you want to deck up with your favorite star’s wardrobe but don’t know where to start, or if you are aspiring to stay ahead in the slay game without having to hire a stylist, we’ve compiled a list of how to dress like celebrities as well as celebrity dress-up ideas to help you rise and shine.
Tips for a Celebrity Fashion Makeover
If you keep regular tabs on what celebrities wear to parties and events or while casually addressing the fandom outdoors, you may have noticed some commonalities that reveal the basics of dressing up like one of them. So without further adieu, let’s take a look at some styling tips which will keep your style game on point and at par with your favorite celebs:
Keep an Eye Out for the Latest Trends
Ah, celebrities! From sports to movie stars, you’ll hardly find a renowned personality who isn’t up-to-date with the latest fashion trend. So when nothing else comes to mind, this is a great place to start. Start with your research and try to spot the latest styles that keep celebrities glamorous. Read fashion magazines, follow famous celebrities and stylists on social media platforms, and browse through fashion websites to learn everything about the latest inspo in the fashion industry. Alternatively, if you are driven by a unique or eclectic fashion sense of a particular celebrity (Lady Gaga, anyone?), then you can also check out their latest looks and find the right elements to add to your wardrobe.
Follow the Stylists
Yes, celebrities are best known for rocking the front covers of magazines and ads with their fashion outfits, but it’s really the designer and stylist behind them who conceive and bring that style to life. You can also give these stylists a follow on social platforms and check out what makes their fashion sense tick and how celebrities adopt it.
Start Transforming your Wardrobe
Now we all know that famous people have access to the top line of designer clothing and brands, which is only affordable for some. An excellent way to start is to slowly transform your wardrobe one piece at a time. This may take a lot of time and require you to constantly analyze what’s hot and what’s not in the fashion world, but adopting this approach is likely to result in a sassy wardrobe over time.
It’s well worth mentioning here that you shouldn’t be sacrificing the quality of fabrics or not burning a hole in your pocket while doing so. Invest in classic, timeless attires with high-quality fabrics that even your favorite celebrity would approve of.
Mix n’ Match
The thing that makes fashionistas out of celebrities is that you’ll rarely find them wearing the same outfit or style twice. They have so many eyes watching their every move that most of them would refrain from repeating their outfits, especially in public events. But this isn’t something that you need to worry about. You can mix and match your outfits and invest in pieces that look good on you and can be customized with many other options and accessories.
Celebrity Dress-Up Ideas
So with the tips done, let’s take a look at the most prominent Canadian celebrity fashionistas who turn heads (and fashion magazine pages) with their cool, sexy, or simply outrageous fashion sense.
Ryan Gosling may already steal hearts with his vivid eyes and suave expressions but take a look down at his fashion sense. He mostly opts for a casual look with a leather jacket over denim shirts and jeans, but that’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about the iconic suits that you can see him wearing at award functions and prestigious events. This is where he kills it (figuratively, of course).
Coco Rocha is a top Canadian model who knows the game when it comes to pulling off the best fashion in the country. She was featured in the Toronto Standard’s list of Canadian Style Industry Icons last year, and she certainly packs a punch while walking the ramp in her flowy and elegant dresses. Even with the top fashion designers behind her, Coco Rocha certainly deserves mention in our list.
What to say about the man himself; Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds is at the forefront of North American celebrities who know their fashion game inside out. He is undoubtedly among the most handsome and definitely talented Canadian men. But what makes him stand out is the fact that he gives him two pieces and a pair of trousers, and he’ll most certainly look good in them (remember Green Lantern?). This speaks volumes about how he carries himself in almost anything he wears.
We particularly love his effortless vibe in pulling off dad-like tailored pants and sweaters, creating a distinct niche in the fashion world. The best thing about Ryan Reynold’s fashion is that you don’t need to spend extravagantly to don his style.
From one talented and quirky Canadian celebrity to another, Rachel McAdams is another style icon in Canada who can perfectly reflect her witty self in the outfits she wears. We’ve pretty much seen the Notebook star look dapper in everything she wears, from boho outfits to more elegant styles. But that doesn’t mean that Rachel can’t pull off an oversized tee or a maxi dress if she wants to (she already has).
A Canadian celebrity who is no less than a legend in the music industry, Celine Dion can also make you go gaga with her style. In recent years, the singer has been the diva with her exemplary street-style inspirations that perfectly showcase her fluency and flawlessness, just like her singing prowess.
Time for a Wardrobe Revolution
This was our guide on how to dress like a celebrity and some famous Canadian Style icons who make dressing up for the red carpet seem effortless. Most of it is down to their exceptional team of stylists who constantly strive to create that killer, viral look, but it’s also due to their personality and dressing preferences.
So give your favorite celebs a follow to check out their styles and slowly transform your wardrobe to become a trendsetter in your social circle.
