There can’t be many women who don’t wish they had a celebrity wardrobe. Whether you are a fan of stars like Beyonce and Katy Perry, or prefer the laid back look of Kate Moss and Alexa Chung, they all have closets to die for.

Of course, they’re lucky enough to have the world’s top designers all clamouring to dress them, which means they have their pick of all the latest looks and the most fashion forward trends. Unfortunately these clothes are a bit out of reach for most women, which means they have to be inventive when it comes to creating their own versions of top celeb looks.

If you’ve got a special event coming up or just want to create your own celeb inspired looks, then here are some ways in which you can use garments like maxi dresses and a simple pair of jeans to get that star quality.

1.      Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Over the past few years Kate’s style has gone from strength to strength and now she regularly makes her mark on best dressed lists around the world. A lot of her outfits come from high street stores, albeit the more expensive ones, but it’s really easy to copy her designer looks as well.

Kate rarely wears black, so go for some colour or opt for navy if you prefer darker hues. Flattering pencil dresses are a must, while she’s also a fan of pretty dresses with A-line skirts that finish just above the knee. Finish your look with a pair of nude coloured court shoes and a small clutch.

2.      Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung’s love of vintage clothing and her slightly scruffy style mean she’s a really easy celeb to copy when it comes to your wardrobe. To start, you need to ensure you’ve got a few Breton striped T-shirts, as they’re practically her uniform. Skinny jeans in black and blue are also essential, while cut-off denim hot pants are perfect for summer. Add a leather jacket and you’ve got any casual occasion covered, especially with the addition of a quirky bag and a long pendant necklace.

3.      Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham’s dresses may be a little on the pricey side, but that doesn’t mean you can’t copy her style on the high street. She always looks incredibly polished and this is thanks to her uniform of smart fitted dresses and heels. Make sure your shoes are pointy stilettoes and you’ll instantly get a bit of VB swagger. Your dresses should be fitted but not too tight – look for structured midi dresses in dark or neutral colours and think ‘stylish office chic’. She rarely does patterns, but she does seem to love the occasional bright, all-over bold citrus colour. And don’t forget a huge pair of sunglasses.

4.      Alessandra Ambrosio

Stunning Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is not only a beautiful and successful model, but she’s also got a super-cool, laid-back sense of style. While lots of women in Hollywood are obsessed with fake tan, fake nails and looking polished at all times, Alessandra has a more relaxed, yet always stylish look.

If you’re going to a festival this summer her Coachella 2013 look is really easy to copy. All you need are a pair of pale denim hotpants and a pretty embroidered top. Peasant tops are always on trend so it’s simple to pick one up on the high street. Add a pair of ankle boots and a fringed shoulder bag and you’re ready to go.

5.      Gwyneth Paltrow

Say what you like about Gwyneth Paltrow and her strong views about diet and exercise, but there’s no denying she always looks amazing. She’s obviously got a designer wardrobe to die for, but her look is actually quite easy to achieve and it’s all about classic comfort.

Make sure you stick to neutral colours like beige, pale blue, white and grey and experiment with skinny jeans and looser fitting tops to get Gwynnie’s stylish but relaxed look. A blazer and a loose, soft scarf will finish off your look, while she’s a flat of both comfy ballet flats and chunky heeled ankle boots.
