Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actress, and television judge. She rose to fame in the 1990s after the success of her debut album. With songs like “Always Be My Baby” and “Hero,” she has won five Grammy awards. If you want a high glam diva aesthetic, opt for the wig and bodycon dress. If you want a casual costume, wear her studio outfit: a simple black cardigan and high waisted jeans. And  there’s always her Santa outfit from her hit holiday single, “All I Want For Christmas is You.” To fully transform into this iconic pop star, you can follow this makeup tutorial.

The Blues Brothers

Ex-con Jake “Joliet” Blues (John Belushi) and his brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) are the Blues Brothers, a band on a mission from God to save a Catholic orphanage. In their quest, they must face the police, neo-Nazis, and worst of all, a country and western band.

Prince

If you don’t think Prince is sexy then you probably haven’t seen Purple Rain or maybe you have no idea who Prince is. If the latter is the case you should Google him now. Considered by some to be the king of androgyny, Prince continues to impress the world with his fashion choices which almost always includes heels.

Beyonce Single Ladies

Cee Lo Green

Musician, producer, actor Cee Lo Green turns heads wherever he goes. With his one-of-a-kind wardrobe, he’s certainly not one to shy away from feathers, fur (in the form of a Persian lap cat) or bedazzles.
