Mom and Daughter Nail It With These 21 Budget Recreations of Red-Carpet Looks

Ever look at all of the celebrities strutting down the red carpet in their lavish gowns and think, man! I really wish I could afford a dress like that and look that amazing in it.

Well one artist Alya Chaglar from Turkey, who has a young daughter Stefani, has always loved to create outfits out of materials you wouldn’t normally expect—anything from newspapers to tin foil and crayons. Everything is always made inexpensively, with things most people would find in their home already.

After getting to spin around in these creative designs for the five years of her little life, Stefani of course wants to grow up to be a fashion designer. And we think she’s well on her way! She couldn’t look more adorable.

It started out just for fun, but the two soon realized that they could totally give celebrity fashion a run for its money by using Alya’s talents (and Stefani’s cuteness!) to mimic everyone’s favorite celebrity gowns.

“It takes around 10-30 minutes to recreate a celebrity’s look, we use nothing more than plastic, paper, tin foil and other materials you can find around the house, and a stapler to stick the pieces together,” Alya said.

From J. Lo to J. Law, check out these adorable side-by-side photos of celebrities in their gowns and little Stefani cheesing in her own budget-friendly creative designs.
