What’s more satisfying than recreating a very expensive celebrity look with a couple household knickknacks and a lot of garbage bags?
If you’re interested in stealing some famous styles for a lot less (and I mean a lot less), you should be following former “Buffy” actor Tom Lenk (remember Cyrus?), who has pretty much made it his mission to show you how to get a next-to-nothing version of these iconic outfits.
Here are some of our favorites…
1. Here’s Tom Lenk recreating Blake Lively’s casual morning look. The Gossip Girl star was caught leaving Good Morning America in this Oscar de la Renta dress straight from the 2018 Spring runway. The actress complemented the sequined column dress with a pushed back hairstyle, Christian Louboutin heels, and jewels from Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira. Lenk decided the best way to recreate this dress was to include a bag of Lays chips because Lively always “sLAY’s.” We couldn’t agree more.
2. Only Rihanna would be capable of making this cookie-monster looking dress look cool. The singer posted pictures to Instagram in the off-the-shoulder tulle ball gown, which she paired with sneakers and a pair of sunglasses. Tom Lenk was able to create a spot-on version using 2 plastic blue tablecloths from home and added black sneakers to his ensemble.
3. Probably my favorite Lenk creation, the former “Buffy” actor recreated one of the craziest red carpet looks of all time, aka Cee Lo Green’s Grammys look. To be honest Lenk’s version is so crazy I didn’t know if he was even actually in there. The actor used gold tablecloths, “wig head spray GLEWED” and of course, glitter.
4. An important night for the Oscar-winning actress, Reese Witherspoon’s HBO series “Big Little Lies” was up for 16 awards at the 2017 Emmys (it took home 8). Witherspoon wore a teal Stella McCartney blazer dress for the occasion. The actress completed the sassy mini dress with matching pointy-toe pumps and silver knocker earrings by David Webb. If you want to get the #LenkLewkForLess all you’ll need is a metallic party tablecloth.
