When it comes to crazy outfits and glamorous get-ups, celebrities set the standard. With their designer dresses, gravity-defying hairstyles, glitzy selfies, and colorful costumes, they wow us all at galas, red carpet events, and awards shows.
Well, one little girl has been poking fun at some of the more ludicrous celebrity outfits and eye-catching photos of the past, using nothing but household items to recreate those looks in her own home!
Whether she’s copying some crazy Nicki Minaj hairstyle or a kooky catwalk look, 9-year-old Australian, Riley, has absolutely mastered the art, earning herself 185k followers over on Instagram. Here are 40 of her most hilarious looks.
1) Sweet Lips
Riley used Nutella to recreate this weird haute couture photograph of model Eva Hooft.
2) So Shiny
This is what Riley does best! She made a whole outfit using foil and trash bags, and it looks almost as good as the real thing.
3) Good Enough To Eat
A lot of Riley’s looks incorporate candies and sweet treats. Here, she took all the beads from a candy necklace and stuck them to her face to create this colorful look.
4) The Mummy
Riley is doing an amazing imitation of Sabrina Carpenter here, wrapping herself up with toilet paper to create this mummy-like dress.
5) A Sweet Tooth
Riley definitely has a sweet tooth, as she always seems to have candy around the house to make her outfits! This side-by-side shows her copying model Meika Woollard.
6) Hot Dog
Some of Riley’s side-by-side comparison shots play with perspective. Her mom and dad often help out, as seen here, where one of her parents is holding up a hot dog to make this funny Zendaya imitation.
7) So Flexible
Riley looks pretty flexible in this side-by-side shot, but she actually called in a buddy to make it! Those legs actually belong to her friend, who is lying on Riley’s back at just the right angle to make this funny photo.
8) Too True
Definitely one of our favorites, this photo shows Riley poking fun at a Nia Sioux photo. Her dad is usually the one who browses Instagram to find photos for his daughter to copy, while Riley’s mom helps to make the outfits.
9) Princess Of Pop
Riley is looking absolutely interstellar in this funny imitation of Michael Jackson’s daughter, actress and model, Paris Jackson.
10) So Good
This is definitely one of the funniest outfits Riley ever pulled off! Using some simple vegetables, she recreated this iconic and utterly bizarre Nicki Minaj hairstyle.
11) Snake Eyes
Riley’s love of all things sweet and sugary shines through again in this photo, with a candy snake curling around her eye.
12) Dressed To Impress
At first glance, you might not even notice anything strange about this outfit, but then you look closer and see that Riley used salad to recreate the shirt pattern. Her model pout is flawless too!
13) Waffles For Days
We hope Riley got to chow down on those tasty-looking waffles after using them to recreate this tasty-looking Emma Stone dress.
14) Ready To Rap
Lil Pump has a pretty distinctive look with his colorful dreads and many tattoos, but Riley is rocking a really accurate recreation here!
There’s so much to love about this Rihanna parody from Riley. First, the serious and moody expression on her face, despite the fact that she has a pan on her head. Then, the ‘Never Not Hungry’ tattoo on her chest. And finally, the aluminum foil dress. Perfection.
16) Rihanna 2.0
Here’s another Rihanna imitation from Riley, and for this one, she simply had to carry a whole bundle of colorful dresses around.
17) You Go Girl
Riley seems to love bringing food into her photos. She couldn’t quite bend her leg like the original photo, but a baguette works just as well!
18) A Grate Photo
This is another amazing example of Riley and her parents using perspective to recreate a classic look. We love the fact that she even made her own little bag with “Make America Grate Again” written on it.
19) Nearly Got It
Riley couldn’t quite hold the pose for this photo, but she’s still doing a pretty good job of keeping her feet in the air.
20) Working Out
Looks like Riley has been working out in order to imitate mixed martial artist Michelle Waterson. Oh no, she just taped some potatoes to her arms instead.
21) Double Rainbow
Riley didn’t want to wait around for an actual rainbow to appear on her face, so she did the next best thing and made this funny copy using colored pencils.
22) Can You Breathe?
A simple plastic bag was all Riley needed to remake this ridiculous catwalk look. Let’s hope she remembered to cut some holes in there to breathe!
23) Toast, Anyone?
Riley has absolutely captured Dance Moms star and YouTube personality Jojo Siwa with this funny photo. It’s so funny to think of her and her parents sitting around taping pieces of toast to an old purple sheet.
Here’s another Lil Pump copy. Riley used temporary tattoos of all shapes and colors to try and copy the rapper’s unique visual style, sticking twigs in her hair to look like his dreadlocks.
25) Spaghetti Hair
One of the best things about Riley’s photos, aside from the silly accessories and random food items stuck to her face, is how she always manages to mirror the facial expressions of the people she’s trying to copy.
26) That Works
Sure, if you look a little closer, you can notice some subtle differences, but we’d say Riley more or less nailed this Ashanti outfit.
27) Foil Is All You Need
Foil has proven to be one of Riley’s best friends when making these funny photos. She and her parents have become masters of molding it into just the right shapes to recreate dresses and accessories.
28) Mirror Image
All Riley needed was a blue towel and a big trash bag to copy this Rihanna look! We have to wonder how much Rihanna paid for that coat.
29) Marshmallow Man
We’re not sure what the original designer was trying to say with this giant marshmallow outfit, but either way, Riley made an almost perfect copy with an old comforter.
30) So Much Lettuce
Lil Tay likes to flash her cash, but Riley’s happy enough to simply show off her lettuce leaves.
31) Killer Abs
Who needs abs when you’ve got sweet and tasty bread rolls? Yet again, Riley absolutely nails the facial expression here.
32) Just Got Out Of Bed
Riley’s rocking the ‘just got out of bed’ look in this funny side by side comparison with Paris Bishop.
33) Very Bizarre
Riley recreated a whole front cover of Harper’s Bazaar here, renaming it to ‘Riley Is Bizarre’ as she poses with a bowl on her head.
34) Robot Buddy
Riley must have had fun making this one! She got to pose beside a robot friend, in front of a setting sun on the Mac screen.
35) Grass Skirt
Grass skirts are fine, but Haley Bennett’s grass dress looked a little strange. Riley made her own version, taping some turf to a black trash bag. Yet again, she nailed it!
36) Ready For The Catwalk
Riley really does look ready to strut her stuff on the catwalk in this kooky outfit. It’s exactly the sort of thing some arty designer would make.
37) Nice Beard
Proving that she can pull off male outfits just as well as female ones, Riley is seen here imitating Indian actor Ranveer Singh after sticking some autumn leaves to a simple black shirt.
38) So Strong
Malin Malle Jansson is flexing her muscles in style here, posing perfectly horizontally and lifting herself up into the air. Riley’s photo was taken at a slightly different angle, but looks just as good when turned on the side.
39) Perfect Pose
Toilet paper has turned out to be one of the most important things on Earth during the coronavirus crisis, so it seems fitting that Riley decided to pose with a roll in her hands here.
40) High Fashion
Riley decided to copy a model from Italian fashion house Valentino for this side-by-side photo. Her mom is posing behind her, wearing white gloves to recreate the wings on the original outfit.
