Allison Williams as Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly: Style Icons and the Stars that Play Them (PHOTOS)

We’ve all dreamed of taking a walk in our style icon’s glamorous shoes. And who hasn’t channeled their fashion idol before, or borrowed a note from their style book? But, outside of Halloween, few of us get to dress the part, head to toe.

So its no surprise that stylish stars like Katie Holmes, Nicole Kidman, and Allison Williams, jumped at the chance to play some of fashions most famous faces, whether for magazines or movies.

This wave of sartorial nostalgia sweeping through Hollywood has inspired our latest Fashion Flashback: We’re taking a look at all the lucky leading ladies who’ve gotten to dress up as some of fashion’s most iconic women.


Let’s start with the ultimate dress-up fantasies: Holmes scored the role of a fashionista’s lifetime when she played Jackie Kennedy in the TV miniseries The Kennedys, and French actress Audrey Tautou caused major Chanel-envy when she was cast as the legendary designer Coco Chanel in the film Coco Before Chanel.

Then there were the stars who got to play their own fashion idols…

Sienna Miller chopped her boho waves and switched up her style to play her fashion icon Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl, and Lindsay Lohan didn’t hesitate to throw on a black wig (and lot’s of jewels) to play her idol Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz and Dick.

Playing the part of fashion royalty, Aussie besties Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts have both transformed into posh princesses of the past for upcoming roles. A style icon herself, Kidman was an easy choice to play actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly, while it’s eerie how much Watts resembled the late Princess Diana while filming scenes for an upcoming movie on the Princess of Wales.

Even fashion icon-in-training Williams has gotten a chance to play dress up in a fashion legend’s closet. The Girls star channeled Catherine Deneuve’s sultry sophistication for the most recent issue of Page Six Magazine.

Check out more stars who’ve dressed the part of fashion’s most iconic faces in our gallery.

Which fashion legend would you want to play? For our fashion editor, it’s fellow blonde and ’90s style icon Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. Share your fashion idol in the comments below.

Sienna Miller Talks Giving Birth in ‘Harper’s Bazaar’: ‘I Would Do That Day a Million Times Again’

New mom Sienna Miller has opened up about life after giving birth and what it’s like to be a mother to her daughter Marlowe.

The 30-year-old actress welcomed her first child with fiancé Tom Sturridge back in July.

“It’s the best, the greatest thing in the world,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK.

“I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it.”

Miller, who appears as the January cover girl for the magazine, also touched on her new appreciation for her own body, and the changes it’s gone through.

 

“My body’s a completely different thing to me, it’s not mine — all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone,” she told Harper’s.

“You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do.”

Miller, who’s been in a relationship with Sturridge since 2011, said motherhood is “the most surreal thing.”

“I’d expected that she’d be this extension of me and I’d instantly understand who she was because she’d come from me, and then you realize that they are their own people entirely,” she added.

For more of Sienna Miller’s interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, check out the magazine’s January issue. What do you think of Miller’s comments on motherhood and giving birth? Weigh in below.

Alfred Hitchcock: Still Hot in Hollywood After 70 Years (VIDEO)

Thanks to two new movies and a deluxe Blu-ray box set, Alfred Hitchcock is as hot as ever, not just 30-plus years after his death, but more than 70 of Hollywood moviemaking.

Rightfully dubbed “The Master of Suspense,” Hitchcock was a top-shelf purveyor of thrills whose works were as influential as they were entertaining.

With the theatrical release of Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock, Celebuzz examines the filmmaker’s legacy, and takes a look at the entertainment industry’s tributes to his iconic body of work.

Hitchcock comes on the heels of Universal’s Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection, as well as HBO’s The Girl. The former is a 15-film boxed set that collects virtually all of the filmmaker’s major work in the United States, and the latter is a chronicle of the troubled relationship Tippi Hedren (played by Sienna Miller) had with Hitchcock (Toby Jones) during the filming of The Birds.

Although both of the films profiled in these biopics are decidedly horror-oriented – Hitchcock looks at the making of Psycho – the box set provides a broader view of his career as longtime fans and newcomers have the opportunity to watch murder mysteries (Rope), political actioners (North By Northwest) and psychological thrillers (Vertigo) among others.

Watch Celebuzz’ overview of the new Hitchcock-themed projects coming out of Hollywood above. Below, check out the theatrical trailer for Hitchcock, which opens in theaters November 21.

Sienna Miller Modeled Nude While Pregnant for Artist Jonathan Yeo: 20 Celebrities Who’ve Bared Their Bumps (PHOTOS)

Sienna Miller may have already given birth to her first daughter, but her baby bump is now immortalized thanks to painter Jonathan Yeo.

The British artist recently debut his latest painting — a nude pregnant portrait of the 30-year-old actress — on his personal website.

“It is a tribute to [Sienna’s] courage and self-confidence that she agreed to sit for this,” Yeo, 41, said of the project. “I can think of many figures whose public currency in part revolves around their appearance who would prefer to hide themselves away for nine months.”

However, Miller isn’t the only celeb to have bared their bump for art.

In October, HBO’s Girls star Jemima Kirke stripped down to show off her pregnant body for Vice Magazine.

Like the Alfie actress, Kirke, 27, was certainly not shy about showing off her naked breasts and baby belly.

Miller gave birth to daughter Marlowe in July. The baby’s father is her fiance, actor Tom Sutrridge.

Launch the gallery above for more stars who’ve bared their naked baby bellies.

Sienna Miller Strolls with Baby Daughter Marlowe (PHOTOS)

Sienna Miller has debuted her brand-new daughter, Marlowe.

The star of HBO’s upcoming The Girl took the three-month-old for a stroll in NYC’s Central Park on Oct. 6, offering the first public glimpse of her bundle of joy. Marlowe’s dad is On the Road actor Tom Sturridge.

What did the mother and daughter duo do on their relaxing day out?

Miller, 30, showed off her maternal skills, giving little Marlowe a pacifier at they sat on a park bench. The tiny tot then received loads of kisses from her mother before dozing off.

 

 

Motherhood isn’t slowing down the actress. She promoted The Girl — an Alfred Hitchcock biopic — at last weekend’s Variety Performers Brunch at the Hamptons International Film Festival with co-star Toby Jones. In the made-for-TV movie, which will air on Oct. 20, Miller plays Hitchcock’s leading lady Tippi Hedren.

Sienna Miller Channels Gwyneth Paltrow in White Cape Gown at Hampton’s International Film Festival: Style Showdown (PHOTOS & POLL)

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that’s true, Sienna Miller paid Gwyneth Paltrow a big compliment this weekend.

The new mom wore a long white gown with a built-in cape to the 20th Hampton’s International Film Festival over the weekend that looked strikingly similar to the white Tom Ford gown Paltrow wore to last year’s Oscars.

Though Miller didn’t attend the 2012 Oscars, it would have been near impossible to miss the buzz about Paltrow’s caped Tom Ford dress, which landed her on almost every best-dressed list.

Still, we can’t fault Miller for channeling Gwyn’s caped look — the elegant but unexpected look is the epitome of the effortless elegance that Paltrow is know for.

Like her sartorial muse for the evening, The Girl star kept the look streamlined with minimal accessories and low-key hair and natural make-up.

Despite the fact that the two dresses look nearly identical, Miller’s Alessandra Rich dress was in a more seasonal champagne hue and unlike the asymmetrical neckline on Paltrow’s version, Miller’s super-streamlined dress featured a simple high neckline.

The actress’ nude Prada shoes were seen peeking out of the bottom of the gown, but Miller amped up her neutral ensemble with double gold cuffs and a red clutch.

Both blondes’ caped column gowns are incredibly chic and elegant, but Paltrow’s streamlined Oscar look just barely won out for its perfectly tailored fit. Miller’s slightly less formfitting gown called for a higher, dressier heel to avoid the bunching at the hemline and fit the gown’s glam vibe.

Still, this style showdown was a close call, with both blond starlets wowing in their white caped gowns.

Now it’s your turn to weigh in: Which star do you think wore the caped column gown better? Take a look back at Paltrow’s Tom Ford Oscar gown; then vote for your pick in the poll right.
