Do you copy ANY of your styles, like Cloths, Hairstyles, or anything else, from CELEBRITIES?

I never have,and don't get it, but when I see folks in the certain dress a Presidents wife was wearing or cutting their hair to look like some singer or actress, I KNOW this is very common. If you do this, please explain WHY you think some celebrity is WORTH "copying"???

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

There are very few things in this world that qualify as original.

Not everyone is trying to look like the person they're copying. They see a public figure that has the same body shape/type, complexion, hair color, etc. who is wearing something that is flattering (i.e. a hairstyle or color combo they would've never thought to try) so they shop for something similar.

Yes, there are some that really are trying to be the mini-me of a celebrity but that's not the case for the vast majority. I see no difference in copying something seen on a celebrity vs buying something I saw someone wearing while walking down the street.

I have learned not to set my body image to the standards of Hollywood. I don't base my style on the looks of the famous.

My problem has always been that I am trying to find a photo of how I want my hair and then some actress comes out in a movie with the exact way I want my hair, color and all! Now, I feel awkward walking into the salon with a picture of her hair. It is not that I want to copy this actress, or that I am even a fan of her, but she has the same type of hair as me and in the style that I want.

Well... my body inspiration is Marilyn Monroe. I have a similar skeletal structure, so I should be trying to get around her weight (adjusted for the fact that I'm several inches taller than she was and more muscular), and some of the clothes she wore would look very flattering on me after I get to my ideal size. But I have very different coloration and a different face shape, so I'd only take it so far.

My limit to celebrity looks is they're everywhere, and sometimes you spot a style on one that has your face shape/coloration/body type and think 'Hey, that would suit me too'. It gets to be a problem when people see their favorite celebrity, who looks nothing like them, and do what they're doing because they're doing it.

No I don't copy people. I like to be unique. If anything I'd try not to look like a celebrity just because I wouldn't want people thinking I wasn't original.

I don't consciously try to emulate anybody's style.

I don't really copy anyone's style, haircut, etc. but I probably have similar tastes in those departments as a lot of other people so it's kind of hard to be original in that respect. I just wear clothes I like that I find comfortable and I cut my own hair but keep it long most of the time, nothing too special about it.

Not really, but there is one makeup/hair look Katy Perry did that I want to try someday. Y'know that weird sort of amazon goddess like deer person she morphed into toward the end of her E.T video? ...that whole look (minus the deer shaped bottom half) is amazing. c:
