>> keep up with the latest trends that all the a-list celebrities are wearing. now you can.

>> and at a fraction of the price, you can steal their looks. lilliana vasquez, good morning.

>> good morning.

>> i think she's a stunning woman, eva mendez . she's wearing a lady-like but playful look.

>> yeah. and i love she makes it feel modern with the accessories. i was able to recreate this identical look for under $125. so starting with this great soft kind of peach top.

>> wonderful.

>> this is from nordstrom's. we cinched her in at the waist. and then the pleated mini skirt is all the rage for 2014 . a little bit of a longer hem. something you could totally wear a little bit later. it's a little cold for it right now. and also printed pumps add a playful edge. these are super affordable, under $125 for the entire look head to toe .

>> it's elegant and age appropriate for any age.

>> exactly.

>> and i love eva for that.

>> thank you so much.

>> let's move on to leonardo dicaprio . it's award season so we see him in formalwear a lot. but you love the street stuff.

>> i do. and he has one go-to look whenever he's off duty. so brad is doing this one from us from leo. we have a great jacket from top shop , sweater and jeans from h & m. both pieces under $50. and it's all in one color family. but if you mix tone and texture in one family, you're foolproof. and he never leaves home without the cap, and every celebrity needs shades to keep him from the paparazzi.

>> we like that.

>>> next, bradley cooper always looking cool. and you found this --

>> well, actually, this one i think is kim and kanye .

>> kanye and kim .

>> they're everyone's most talked about celebrity couples. and whether you love them or hate them, they're always dressed really, really well. kanye is kind of known for his kind of casual style, but it's always got a little bit of a fashion flair. most guys aren't going to do leather pants.

>> no.

>> hey, did you see that episode of "friends"?

>> we did.

>> this $10 jean jacket i found at american eagle , plaid shirt from urban outfitters and coated denim which gives the leather look for much, much less. and kim kardashian has been doing the same look since she had the baby. a long oversized coat and a body conscious skirt. i was able to recreate this entire look for under $100, starting with this gorgeous oversized coat from burlington for $80, simple tank top and skirt for $20. and she literally looks better than kim .

>> she may take issue with that.

>> but for $100.

>> next trend-setter, rihanna. she breaks the rules all the time.

>> all the time. but this one is a good rule to break.

>> she's kind of known for her risque style. but this look is something people could pull off. a little bit more buttoned up and conservative. we did the denim on denim look with a great shirt. a button down denim shirt. everyone should --

>> looks exactly the same.

>> almost identical.

>> tj maxx $20, the skirt from forever 21 . and then great accessories from shoe dazzle.

>> looks identical.

>> we got that for less than $1 at the good will. we'll take the $97.

>> not bad.

>> well done. come on out, guys.

>> you have outdone yourself.

>> thank you, guys.

>> and all these looks are on our website at you guys look like stars.

>> you do.
