Celebrity style stealer (Ellen, Beyonce and Kelly Ripa)

As a fashionista (or wannabe fashionista), I am always inspired by what people wear around me. I am also inspired by what celebrities wear. Even if its true that I cannot afford most of the things they wear, it is still a pleasure trying to find it in my favorite mall or inside my closet. Sometimes I get lucky, other times I get creative. Today, I just wanted to blog about the celebrity styles that I love and try to pimp out

Ellen navy style
I always liked Ellen for her funny dances and her positive attitude. I do not find her necessarily hilarious but I can enjoy her show for the reason that she is a bit different (not meaning lesbian). Moreover, I really enjoy her style. It is so laid back and effortless. Ellen is always wearing boyish pieces in layers. And she is the type of tomboy that will never be caught dead wearing a dress (even at her own wedding). And it works for her. The style I like the most on her is the Navy one:

Navy Blazer-Striped Tee and White jeans



Here is my version of the Navy inspired look:




George Navy jacket- Walmart
Nine West Striped Top- Goodwill
MNG White pants- Goodwill
Joey O Red peep toe shoes- Ross

I already own a navy jacket even if it is not a blazer. I am thinking of changing the buttons into golden ones to make them pop and respect the navy theme. I just bought a striped top made by Nine West. But I will try to stay away from white jeans as much as possible. For some reasons, they frighten me to death. I guess it is because I think that they only look good on models or skinny people. So instead, I would wear white linen pants I can easily handle (and stay away from my two kids and their dirty hands)


Beyonce casual style
I am not a fan of the leotard style Beyonce has been seen rocking in all her latest videos. Actually, it is pretty rare that I like something Beyonce wears in her videos or in her TV appearances. I think that her style when it comes to being Beyonce or Sasha Fierce (the singer/ actress) is all over the place. Yet, when she is just Beyonce hanging around with Jay-Z, I cannot help by fall in love with her casual style. I am in love of her simplest one yet:

Balmain jacket- white Tee- skinny jeans- high heels and oversized bag




I also love what she wore at the Coachella music festival just recently
Fedora hat-printed tee- jean shorts and boots




Now here is my first version of Beyonce' s style. I had the grey tee for a while now and wore it often around town, particularly in winter. Here I paired It with my favorite skinny jeans, and a lightweighted cream jacket. I recently acquired a pair of wedges that are so comfy, I am already wearing them everywhere. They are my new favorite shoes. And after a year of searching, I had finally found the beaded necklace that I blogged about during last summer and I love it.







Cream Jacket- Ross
Hanes Tee- Walmart
Skinny Jeans- Ross
Report wedge gladiator- Ross
Beaded necklace- Shasa

My second look is the fedora, light cardigan, white tee, skinny jeans, bright bag and cork heels. I purchased the hat in Perth Australia 6 years ago and barely wore it.When I braid my hair, the hat is too big for my head. So I only remember to wear it when my hair is all natural and huge like now. I love the cardi but due to its color I rarely find it matching with my other colorful tees. I own several oversized bags and can never get enough of them. I am a person who needs a lot of stuff when I go out so I need a big bag. I love this blue one from Walmart because it is colorful. And these heels were my fav two Summers ago because of the patent bright color.They make me happy, and I can run in them (or at least pretend!).







Fedora Hat- Perth market
Cardigan- Old Navy
White tee- Ross
Skinny Jeans- Ross
Rampage cork heels- Ross
Blue oversized bag- Walmart


Kelly Ripa dress style
A part from the ladies of The View, Kelly Ripa is the one that makes me laugh to tears every morning. She is such a funny and happy person. But what I love the most about her is her style. She is so gracious whether she is dressing up or casual. Maybe it is because she is so petite that everything fits her so perfectly. Kelly Ripa is the sole reason I love Michael Kors sheath dress so much. If there is one designer clothes I could buy, it would be a sheath dress from him, and just because Kelly Ripa make it look so good. Furthermore, Ripa always wear these killer heels. She is a shoe-holic like me, and I absolutely adore all the pieces she had already wore on the show.
The best look so far has been this:

Dyed sheath dress-Belt-Lucite cuff (Michael Kors)-Suede Pumps (Fendi)



You cannot see how beautiful the outfit is with the photo, so check the link below for a video of Kelly discussing her outfit with the designer:

Here is my version:







Sheath dress and matching belt-Ross
New York Company White dress shirt- Ross
Maternity black pants- Ross
Faux Suede pumps Metro 7- Walmart

This would be a typical work attire. I cannot wear a sheath dress by itself so I am pairing it with some fitted pants. And I am adding height with my favorite pair slingbacks wedge (that I do not wear anymore because I no longer work).

So what celebrity inspire you?
