Recreating Celebrity Looks: A Guide

Scrolling through the news one morning, you stumble upon a picture of a celebrity at a wedding event. She’s wearing a regal designer anarkali suit with complementing hair and makeup that captures your attention. You wish to create a similar look for yourself. But how do match the sheer glamour of the attire without breaking the bank? By recreating the look with different pieces. Here's a step-by-step guide on how:

Choose Your Inspiration:

Just because a celebrity looks magnificent in a traditional outfit does not mean a similar style would complement you and look just as good. The best option is to find a celebrity with a body type and style that matches yours.

Sourcing the Outfit:

The next step is to search, search, and search more. Figure out what you want and look for them in the top places. Chances are you will find a similar-looking outfit for a much more reasonable price. Once you've secured the outfit get it tailored to fit you to create an enthralling fitted silhouette.

Jewellery and Accessories:

Recreating an attire is all about finding your desired outfit and then styling it as you wish. But if you want an exact copy of your favourite celebrity look, then scour popular jewellery and accessories retailers for a near-perfect match if not exact, at a lower rate.

Hair and Makeup:

Your hair and makeup should always depend on how you look in traditional clothing and not how someone else looks in it. So once you have the outline of your perfect attire, whether it is an Anarkali suit party wear or an embellished saree, choose the hairstyle and makeup that would complement it the most.
