In recent years, there’s been a lot of debate about what makes people beautiful. In the past, it seems like a woman’s beauty was mostly measured by how thin she was, with only stick-thin ladies ever getting jobs as models or actresses. In recent years, however, attitudes have finally started to change, and we see that beauty can come in all shapes and sizes.
One wonderful woman named Katie Sturino is out to prove once and for all that you don’t need to be a size 0 to be beautiful. A blogger from New York, Katie is a size 16 and has struggled with body image issues in the past. She was once a size 12 but put on weight after a divorce. At first, she worried about the weight she was putting on, but gradually, she learned to love her new body and accept herself for how she is.
Now, she frequently dresses up like famous stars, from Meghan Markle to Kylie Jenner, to show that bigger women can be just as gorgeous as their skinnier counterparts. Here are some of her best looks!
Flowers In Spring
Katie’s doing an awesome imitation of Emma Roberts here with this flowery, spring-time look. She’s wearing a classic pair of jeans, a flowery blouse, a small purse in her left hand, and a few little accessories here and there to finish off the outfit, like those classy red shades and beautiful necklace too. Her version has a few key differences when compared to Emma’s, and it works perfectly for her.
Emma Roberts got her start on the Nickelodeon TV show Unfabulous, later going on to star in various other films and TV shows like Scream 4, We’re The Millers, and American Horror Story, in which she has appeared in most of the seasons so far as various characters. She’s the niece of another famous actress: Julia Roberts.
Rocking The Leopard Print
Leopard print and other animal printed clothes can be hard to pull off. You need the right accessories, look, confidence, and sense of style to really make something like a leopard print jacket look amazing, but both Katie and Constance Wu make it happen with this gorgeous outfit. The ensemble is rounded off with a little black dress and charming white heels.
Constance Wu is perhaps best known to audiences for her starring role as Jessica in Fresh Off The Boat, but she also received great critical acclaim for her performance in Crazy Rich Asians, receiving a Golden Globe nomination in the process. She was only the fourth Asian woman to ever receive a nomination, and also appeared on the Time 100 list of the world’s most influential people.
The Glitz and Glam of Hollywood
Here we can see Katie side by side with a famous Hollywood star, Reese Witherspoon. Reese and Katie are both wearing lovely blue dresses and holding a bouquet of flowers in their hand. Katie has even copied Reese’s cross-legged pose to add a finishing touch to the photo, and that flowing blue dress really suits her nicely, showing off her legs and curves to perfection.
Reese Witherspoon, whose real first name is Laura, is one of few actresses to have been named on the Time 100 list more than once. She was ranked as one of the most influential people in the world in both 2006 and 2015, having starred in such major motion pictures as Wild, Legally Blonde, and Sweet Home Alabama.
A Perfect Princess
Meghan Markle was already in the public eye for her acting career, most famously appearing in the TV show, Suits, but she became far more famous after meeting and falling in love with Prince Harry of the British royal family. Ever since then, the paparazzi have tracked her every move, charting her many public appearances and the beautiful outfits she always seems to wear.
Katie has imitated Meghan’s style on many occasions, and this is one of the very best examples. Here, we see Katie in a pair of stylish jeans with an attractive, slightly unbuttoned denim shirt and a long trench coat over the top of it all. It’s a classy, elegant look, fit for a princess, just like both Meghan and Katie.
Heading To 7th Heaven
This look is a simple one, but highly effective when worn by these two queens of glam: Katie and Jessica Biel. It consists of nothing more than a black tee, a pair of sandals, and a leopard print long skirt, but that’s all Jessica and Katie need to look utterly gorgeous while walking around town.
Jessica Biel, also known under her married name of Jessica Timberlake, is famed for her celebrity relationship with singing sensation Justin Timberlake. However, she also has a very impressive career in her own right, starting off as Mary on 7th Heaven and later starring in major films across multiple genres like Total Recall, Blade: Trinity, and Hitchcock.
The Ultimate Style Icon
If there’s one woman who sums up the world of fashion over the last couple of decades, it has to be Kate Moss. The British supermodel is renowned for her thin stick figure and has strutted her stuff on the catwalk more times than we can count. Really, she represents everything that Katie is trying to fight against, but these images show that all body types can be beautiful and fashionable too.
Katie almost looks like a mirror image of Kate Moss here. She’s got almost every element of the star’s outfit, from the shades on her face right down to the boots on her feet. It’s the perfect, subdued look for walking around town or heading to work.
Subdued Style for City Streets
One thing that many celebrities have in common is that they don’t really want to be noticed while out and about enjoying their lives, so they often wear shades and simple outfits, like this one sported by Katie Holmes. It’s a classic look, with a stylish pair of ripped jeans under a flowing black sweater and some elegant white heels to finish it off.
Katie Holmes made a name for herself in the role of Joey on Dawson’s Creek, before going on to star in such major motion pictures as Phone Booth and Batman Begins, as well as starring on stage in a Broadway production of All My Sons. In short, she’s mastered all areas of acting, from TV to film to theatre.
Lip Sync Style
In this side by side comparison, Katie can be seen copying the fashion sense of model, author, and TV personality, Chrissy Teigen. Katie has perfectly nailed this look, with a casual white top, white jacket, and pale jeans, with a fabulous pair of classy heels finishing off the ensemble. Katie even managed to successfully copy Chrissy’s ‘smile and wave’ pose and assorted accessories in her hand.
Teigen made a name for herself as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model back in 2010 and was also one of the hosts of Lip Sync Battle beside LL Cool J. She has appeared in other shows like Snack Off and FabLife too and is famed for her outspoken personality, funny quips on Twitter, and high profile celebrity marriage to singer John Legend.
The Royal Couple
Once more, we’re seeing Katie taking her outfit inspiration from the ever fabulous Meghan Markle, except this time she has her very own Prince Harry by her side. Katie and her partner perfectly embody the regal look and could easily pass for royalty walking down the street with such confidence and swagger.
Katie looks fabulous with that white coat and blue dress combo, finished off with a cute little beret that suits her just as well as it suited Meghan. We’re so used to knowing Meghan as Meghan that many people don’t know her real first name is actually Rachel. She was born Rachel Meghan Markle on August 4 of 1981 in Los Angeles, California.
I’ll Be There for You
Jennifer Aniston is one of those instantly recognizable stars, especially to anyone who grew up in the 90s or early 2000s. She always stands out, even in a relatively subdued, black and white outfit like this one. Katie shines just as bright as her superstar counterpart in a similar ensemble, with a black jacket over all-white attire.
Jennifer Aniston is best known for her starring role as Rachel Green on the classic 90s sitcom Friends. Interestingly, she almost missed out on the role of a lifetime as she was working on another show at the time, and scheduling commitments threatened to ruin everything. Luckily, the other show got canceled, freeing Aniston up to work on Friends.
A Pair of Kates
Katie has done some amazing work imitating one side of the royal family through her copying of Meghan Markle outfits, but she didn’t want to leave Kate Middleton behind either. This look is a great copy of Kate’s, with Katie choosing a slightly different pair of shoes and dress, but still making the outfit work for her. It’s a lovely summer look, ideal for a walk in a park or an outing with friends and family.
Kate Middleton is expected to become the queen consort of the United Kingdom in future years when her husband, Prince William, eventually becomes the king. She’s one of the most photographed and talked about public figures on the planet, with her and William’s wedding being viewed by millions of people around the globe.
Wear It Like Beckham
Here’s Katie doing her best Victoria Beckham impersonation, wearing a classy jade green pantsuit. It’s a striking look, and once again, Katie’s photos show how celebrity styles aren’t exclusively reserved for thin stick models and skinny stars like Victoria herself. Again and again, Katie’s fun photos show that these looks can work on anyone, with a few little adjustments here and there.
It’s been quite a story for Victoria Beckham. She first rose to fame as ‘Posh Spice’ in the classic 90s pop group, the Spice Girls. However, after the band broke up, Victoria Beckham built her own solo career as a fashion designer and solo artist. She also became hugely famous around the world for her relationship with soccer star David Beckham.
Super Stylish Sisters
Here we can see Katie and a friend imitating the looks of stylish model sisters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid. While Gigi and Bella are known for their thin stick figures and extreme diets to keep their weight as low as possible, Katie and her friend show that bigger women can look just as fabulous in similar outfits.
Gigi and Bella come from an interesting background. Their mom, Yolanda Hadid, also worked in modeling and has Dutch roots, while their father, Mohamed Hadid, is originally from Palestine and works as a real estate developer. The family bloodline allegedly goes all the way back to Daher Al Omer, the Prince of Nazareth, so in a way, the Hadids have royal blood running through their veins.
Here’s Katie doing her best impersonation of one of the top TV actresses of the late 90s and early 2000s: Busy Philipps. Katie has once again totally nailed the look of this celebrity, right down to the almost pout-like facial expression she’s pulling as she looks off beyond the camera. She’s wearing pale tones, with a beige skirt, light-colored bags and sneakers, and a distinctive pair of shades over her eyes.
Busy Philipps is an actress and writer who did a lot of great work on shows like Freaks and Geeks, Dawson’s Creek, and ER back in the day. In the modern era, she’s also appeared on Cougar Town, winning a Critics’ Choice award for her time on the show.
Imitating The Master
If there’s one woman who knows a whole lot about style and fashion, it’s Giovanna Engelbert. An Italian fashion designer who studied at the prestigious Brera Fine Arts Academy, Engelbert went on to do model work for Dolce and Gabbana before becoming a stylist and creative director with major fashion brands too.
In this side by side comparison, we see just how great leopard print looks on a woman with Katie’s body type. Giovanna makes it work flawlessly as well, but Katie’s outfit might be even classier with those elegant heels and a slightly larger leather bag than her counterpart. Whichever outfit you prefer, we can all agree that both women look absolutely fabulous with these almost matching ensembles.
Showing a Little Skin
Here’s Katie imitating another Katie, Katie Holmes, to be precise. Holmes was pictured in a loose-fitting gray cardigan, which was falling off her right shoulder at the time, revealing a very expensive cashmere bra. Katie has done a nice job of imitating this look in a slightly classier way than her Hollywood counterpart.
Katie Holmes had an interesting childhood. She was the youngest of five siblings, so she always knew what it was like to be a part of a big family. She went to an all-girls school in Toledo, Ohio, and first got a taste for acting when she appeared in school plays and musicals like Damn Yankees and Hello, Dolly! It was at the age of 14 that she started to take modeling classes and got signed up with an agent.
An All-Black Outfit
This seems to be one of those days where Kendall Jenner would prefer to have avoided the paparazzi, as she’s wearing an all-black outfit, from the shades over her eyes right down to the sneakers on her feet. She’s got a long leather coat on too, and this dark and mysterious look works great on Katie, who’s holding the coat closed just like Kendall as she attempts to evade the press.
Kendall Jenner first made a name for herself as part of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians show, later going on to work in modeling for high-end fashion designers in the big style cities of Paris, Milan, and New York too. She’s worked with everyone from Victoria’s Secret to LOVE and is ranked as one of the best-paid models on Earth.
Goop It Up
Gwyneth Paltrow has always been a leading light in the celebrity fashion world, unafraid to try out a whole host of different looks and styles over the years. This is one of her more subdued and sophisticated looks, with a long gray skirt paired with a simple black sweater. It works wonderfully for Katie, too, flattering her figure and bringing out her bright smile.
Gwyneth Paltrow is an Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning actress, but in recent years, she’s been making a lot of headlines for founding her own lifestyle brand, known as Goop. Goop is all about wellness and new-age living, selling unique items and services that have proven controversial but are adored by the brand’s hardcore fans and followers.
A Victoria’s Secret Star
Katie’s at it again with this superb impersonation of another leading light in the fashion world: Miranda Kerr. Here, Katie sports a bright red skirt over pointed white heels. She holds a navy bag in her hand, with a stylish pink coat slung over her shoulders in the same manner as Miranda.
Miranda Kerr is one of the top Australian models working today, originally announcing herself to the world in campaigns for the Australian department store chain, David Jones, as well as being a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She started modeling at the very young age of just 13 and has frequently been ranked as one of the top-earning models on the planet over the last few years.
Adapting the Look
It’s amazing to see how well Katie copies these celebrity looks. Even when she can’t get the exact items or identical alternatives, she always manages to make the outfit work by finding the next best thing that suits her style. Here, she’s copying Keri Russell’s look with a jacket slung casually over her shoulders, some leather shorts, and a nice pair of heels.
Katie has made a few clear differences, but the outfit still works amazingly well and suits both her and Keri. Keri Russell famously starred in The Americans and Felicity on TV, as well as appearing on the big screen in movies like Mission: Impossible III and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
One Leg in the Air
Here’s another awesome imitation of esteemed fashion figure and world-famous celebrity, Kendall Jenner. Kendall was photographed wearing a classy blue suit combo and a pair of pointed white heels while stepping out of this fancy hotel. Katie totally nailed her look, making it work for her and even imitating the pose of the photo, with one leg raised.
Even though they clearly have a difference in terms of what size clothes they wear, both of these women are beautiful in their own right, and that’s really the point that Katie is trying to prove through these awesome celebrity imitation photographs. She consistently shows that women of all sizes can wear the same outfits and look awesome in the process.
A Little Bit of Magic
Emma Watson had come a long way since those early days of Harry Potter when she first appeared on screens as a scruffy haired Hermione. Nowadays, she’s considered one of the brightest young actresses of our times, a leading figure for the world of fashion, and a terrific role model for feminism and charity work too.
She was photographed here in a very elegant outfit, complete with a classy hat and a book in her hands. Katie copied the look all the way, including trying to imitate Emma’s dreamy gaze at something behind the camera we can’t see, and the book in her hands. Her buttoned dress is a little more creased than Emma’s, but it’s still a very attractive and fashionable look, ideal for a big event on a sunny day.
Get the Russian Look
Proving that her talents aren’t just limited to imitating British, American, and Canadian stars, Katie is going around the world with this look as she copies the fashion taste of esteemed Russian model, Natalia Vodianova. With a blue jacket and a pretty red dress, plus the customary shades and timeless white sneakers, this is a lovely look for strolling around the city on a sunny day.
Natalia Vodianova, also known under her nickname Supernova, is famous for her rags to riches story. She started off life in a very poor district of the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod, which was known as Gorky at the time. Her dad walked out on the family when she was young, and she had to sell fruit to help support her mom and siblings.
Side by Side With Jennifer Garner
Here we can see Katie in a beautiful pink dress, bold shades, pale heels, and a brown leather bag over her wrist in imitation of the actress, Jennifer Garner. If anything, we think Katie looks even better in this outfit than her celebrity counterpart. She really makes that dress work for her, flattering her form and figure to perfection.
Jennifer Garner is famous for her TV and film work in shows and movies like Alias, Daredevil, Elektra, and Dallas Buyers Club. She also does a lot of great work for charity, particularly in the area of childhood education. She’s worked with Save The Children on several occasions and is an ambassador for the charity too.
Beautiful In Blue
Here’s Katie in a very cute little outfit, consisting of a cropped knit top and an attractive patterned skirt, with a pair of black and white Converse on her feet and shades sitting neatly on top of her head. She’s imitating famous model and actress Kaia Gerber with this look.
The daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, Kaia Gerber is one of the top teenage fashion sensations of modern times. She’s still young but has already appeared in top magazines like Vogue, Teen Vogue, and Pop, as well as appearing on the runway for leading labels like Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein. As well as being famous for her modeling career, she’s well known for her extensive tattoo collection.
Will And Kate
We saw Katie earlier doing an awesome impersonation of Kate Middleton, and here she is again, with her very own Prince William by her side. Will’s wearing a simple sweater and casual pants combo, with a big happy grin on his face, while Kate and Katie stand out with a fun plaid skirt and buttoned top.
In the same way that countless women around the world have been inspired by Kate Middleton since her rise to fame as part of the royal family, many people have also been inspired by Katie’s photos. She’s helping bigger women and people of different body shapes and sizes to feel more beautiful and accepted in society through her fabulous photos.
Girl About Town
Reese Witherspoon is often spotted in casual settings wearing relatively simple clothes that you might expect to see on many other non-celebrity women out and about in daily life. She’s not the sort of star to worry too much about wearing the latest Gucci dresses or Michael Kors accessories all the time. Her looks seem to work really nicely for Katie too.
This simple tied plaid shirt and jeans combo is a great fit for Katie, with a tasty drink in one hand and some timeless white sneakers on her feet to complete the look. Katie’s work is really making a difference for a lot of young women out there who struggle with body image issues and worry about how they look in a world where so many famous women seem to be skinny.
Just Like Twins
In many of these photos, Katie has to take a pre-existing celebrity snap and do her best to find a similar outfit of her own. In this case, however, she actually met up with leading fashion blogger Blair Eadie, with the pair wearing the exact same clothes and posing together, side by side. It gives us an awesome comparison of the two, proving that identical ensembles can work awesomely on women of all shapes and sizes.
Blair Eadie is one of the top fashion bloggers and photographers around. She started off in the fashion world in a simple job with Gap but really started to stand out after creating her own site to share thoughts of style and trends. Since then, she’s worked alongside some of the top brands in the world like Sephora, Gucci, and Nordstrom, as well as appearing in top tiers fashion magazines like Elle and Vogue too.
Beauty Comes in All Sizes
Here we can see Katie doing a flawless imitation of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She’s even got the classic model pout down to perfection, with her hair sleeked back, shades hiding her eyes, and one hand casually tucked into the pocket of her crisp gray blazer. It’s a look that works in both casual and formal settings and is designed to draw the gaze of passers-by.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is one of the world’s hottest models right now. The young English star has featured prominently for such brands as Burberry and Victoria’s Secret, as well as getting into the acting world with appearances in movies like Mad Max: Fury Road and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. She’s also well known for her celebrity relationship with action star Jason Statham.
Pretty In Pink
On the left, we have Hailey Rhode Bieber, formerly known as Hailey Baldwin, in an all-pink outfit that looks very comfortable and just right for taking a jog around a park or heading to the gym, or even just walking around the city streets to do some shopping. On the right, we have Katie doing a great imitation of Bieber in a very similar outfit.
It seems like Katie really can do no wrong! Every single outfit she tries seems to work for her, even this bold pink ensemble with fuchsia shorts and a pale sweater. She looks ready to hit the court for a game of tennis with friends or head into the city to do some shopping.
A Stunning Striped Look
Katie has done a fabulous job copying this Alexa Chung look. A striped, red, long sleeve tee flatters her figure nicely, while those distressed denim shorts show off her legs, and the stylish shades finish everything off with that classic celebrity look. Plus, unlike Alexa, Katie isn’t promoting smoking with a cigarette in her fingers.
British writer, model, TV personality, and fashion designer Alexa Chung has become an increasingly important name in the fashion world. She launched her very own brand in 2017, after spending many years modeling for popular magazines and big brands too. She’s been a popular muse for many leading fashion designers and won awards for her sense of style.
The It Couple
We saw Katie do a great imitation of Chrissy Teigen earlier on, and here she is once more, only this time she’s accompanied by her very own John Legend. Legend wears a simple white polo and casual pants, but Chrissy and Katie really stand out in that long, flowing, floral dress, covered with a mixture of greens, pinks, and blues.
There are many celebrity couples out there, but John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are one of the best known and most famous, especially on social media, with the pair routinely sharing moments from their lives with their countless fans. They first met on the set of Legend’s music video for the song ‘Stereo,’ and he later wrote ‘All Of Me’ for her.
Style and Sophistication
Who makes this look work better, Sandra Bullock or Katie? It’s a close call between the two women, as they both make this pale pink pantsuit work for them flawlessly. Katie looks so confident dressed like that, with a gorgeous sense of style and sophistication in her eyes as she strides down the street with her pointed pink heels.
She has a pretty big job in this imitation, as she’s copying a woman who was voted the Most Beautiful Woman on Earth back in 2015 by People magazine. Bullock is an Oscar-winning actress who has wowed us all in movies like Speed, While You Were Sleeping, Bird Box, and The Blind Side, but Katie shines just as bright in these side by side images.
Super-Cute Polka Dots
Polka dots just never seem to go out of fashion. They’re always cute and adorable, especially when worn the right way and combined with the right extras and accessories, as we see here. Arielle Noa Charnas and Katie are wearing a bright, bold red polka dot blouse over pale jeans and beige heels, drawing all of the attention to the dots.
Arielle Charnas is one of the world’s leading Instagram influencers and bloggers, starting off her online career by setting up the blog ‘Something Navy.’ Interestingly, she actually started the blog to try and impress a guy she was dating at the time, but it later evolved into so much more after she and he split up. She eventually teamed up with Nordstrom to start her own fashion line.
Copying Miss World
Beauty pageants have famously been a source of much controversy in recent years, especially as attitudes towards beauty and body image begin to change and become more progressive. One woman who enjoyed immense success in beauty pageants is Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who won the Miss World 2000 pageant and is pictured on the left in a bright skirt and boots with a beige turtleneck and jacket over the top of it.
Katie has big shoes to fill in, attempting to copy a former Miss World, but she pulls off the look spectacularly here. The coat and turtleneck really seem to suit her well, and she’s even copied Priyanka’s hairstyle, which also looks great on her. Is there anything Katie cannot do?
Every Color Works on Her
We’ve seen Katie wearing a lot of different outfits throughout this list, from classy, neutral suits to floral dresses and more. She makes all of them work for her, with her confident sense of style shining through no matter what. Once again, she proves that point here with a flawless copy of a Kate Bosworth outfit.
Bosworth was spotted with a simple white tee and pale pink jacket, but the most dramatic part of her outfit has to be those bright yellow pants. Many people would avoid such a bold and eye-catching color, but it works for Kate, and it works for Katie too. All you need is some confidence and the right matching accessories and attire to make this colorwork for you.
The London Look
Once more, Katie is embodying the style and soul of the fabulous Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. Since moving to England to live with her husband, Prince Harry, Meghan’s looks have appeared more and more often in fashion magazines. This classy coat looks simply amazing on her, proving that even winter or fall looks can be incredibly classy and attractive if you choose the right items, and a similar model looks superb on Katie too.
Meghan has always had a real interest in fashion. In 2014, she founded her own lifestyle website called The Tig, where she wrote about fashion and beauty, as well as sharing profiles of inspiring women from around the world. She had to shut it all down when she entered the royal family, however.
A Blast From the Past
We’ve seen Katie imitate the two leading princesses of the modern world: Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. Here, however, she’s delving deep into the past to remind us of another wonderful member of the royal family who we tragically lost far too soon: Princess Diana herself. And she does a really impressive job of bringing Diana’s charm back to life.
The photo shows the Princess of Hearts wearing a cute blue cap, dark jacket, and tall brown boots. Katie couldn’t get the exact same outfit, but her ensemble is pretty close to the real thing. This side by side comparison reminds us of Diana’s fashion sense, but also of her immense kindness, generosity, and loving nature that helped endear her to so many people.
All the Colors of the Rainbow
Here’s another super Katie comparison with Blair Eadie to finish up this list. Once again, we can see the two women posing together, with Blair being very excited at the prospect of meeting up with Katie to add a whole new take to her celebrity photo series.
Both women are wearing long, flowing, multicolored gowns that are awesome for almost any occasion, especially in the summer months, when the weather is warm, and the sun is shining brightly. The matching shades and colorful necklaces, plus those stylish red sandals, really enhance the outfit on each lady. They both look totally awesome, and it’s clear to see that Katie can make anything work, from black and white suits to floral skirts and colorful dresses like this.
