TV Togs: How to Dress like Your Favorite TV Star

By Erin Donnelly

You’d love to trade lives with your favorite TV characters. Well, minus the relationship drama. And cliff-hangers. Really, you just want their clothes (and maybe a McDreamy or McSteamy on the side). The question is, how do you bring that celebrity style home?

You’re in luck. With the brand-new launch of Pop Sugar’s Celeb Style site, boob tubers can snag the on-screen wardrobes from shows like “Lipstick Jungle,” “Private Practice,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Gossip Girl” with just a few clicks of the mouse. The site offers character-by-character wardrobe guides for a number of television shows and movies, giving you the details on what they’re wearing, where to buy it, and how to find similar pieces within your budget. The site also examines the signature celebrity style of various Hollywood starlets (including Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth), and dishes up advice on how to score star-studded makeup looks as well.

Another site devoted to celebrity style is SeenOn!, a somewhat more comprehensive site that dissects each a character’s look, episode by episode. “Grey’s Anatomy” buffs can snatch up Meredith’s exact scoop-neck top or that pink ball gown Izzie wears in practically every Denny flashback, while fans of the “Sex and the City” movie can discover Carrie and Co.’s designer wares. And if you’re on the hunt for a specific item you spied onscreen (say, Wilhelmina Slater’s killer suit), just shoot over a Shoptalk query, and the site and its readers will help you track the look down.

Of course, wearing Jennie Garth’s dress or Brooke Shields’s blouse packs a much bigger punch if you’ve got an A-list hairdo to match. A cut with a star stylist like Sally Hershberger or Oscar Blandi will set you back hundreds, so instead opt for a try-before-you-buy virtual makeover at Choose your favorite celeb cut—the site’s exhaustive selection covers Ali Larter and Zooey Deschanel, and everyone in between—then upload your photo to see how their style works on your head. It’s easy, inspired, and so much better than attempting that Rihanna crop on your own.

Now, if only George Clooney came with it…
