Probably every single one of us has looked at glamorous celebrities on the red carpet and wished we could switch our outfits to their designer clothes at least for a short while. It sounds like some kind of fantastic Cinderella case. Of course, life is far from a fairytale. Most of us can‘t afford thousands of dollars’ worth red carpet dresses from famous fashion designers. But if we had the mindset and creativity of this incredible mother-daughter duo, dreams could turn into reality in less than 30 minutes. Want to try on Chanel or Gucci? Say no more! A talented Turkish mother, Alya Chaglar, and her cheerful daughter Stefani have been recreating top celebrity red carpet looks with the material that they have on hand. And surprisingly, paper or tin foil can be a fantastic alternative for expensive chic fabric with a little bit of DIY wizardry.

Alya and Stefani, known as seasunstefunny on Instagram, show that quality time with children can be very fun and creative. “She loves saying that we’re the best team ever, and our relationship is really strong, she is my biggest muse and best friend at the same time,” a proud full-time mother told Bored Panda.
By sharing their precious moments from cheeky DIY projects like creating playful outfits with food and flowers using the power of perspective and copying popular celebrity looks, they have not only built a special bond but have earned incredible popularity on social media. With an Instagram following of 278k, it seems like very soon, people will recreate Stefani‘s original looks.
And it shouldn't take long until Stefani starts coming up with her own unique DIY clothes designs. The 5-year-old enjoys recreating the looks of her favorite celebrities and aspires to be a fashion designer when she grows up. For now, she is rocking beautiful outfits in her mom‘s high heels in front of a camera and it‘s adorable! She already has a sense of style and doesn't think twice before throwing in a little constructive criticism. “Hi Nicole, I like your dress but I don’t like your bow,” Stefani said in a video to Nicole Kidman while posing in a plastic recreation of Nicole‘s majestic blue dress with a big bow in the front.
All outfits are hand-made from unconventional materials that can be easily found in every household, including paper, cardboard, tin foil, plastic, and a handy lifesaver – a stapler. These everyday life materials and creativity help Alya and Stefani to recreate over 60 glamorous looks of famous people like Beyoncé, Anne Hathaway, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid, and The Kardashians to name a few. Mother and daughter never take the easy path of referring to rather simple celebrity outfits, they take their DIY to another level by trying to recreate the most extravagant, odd and challenging designs.
Creative duo chooses a memorable look on the Internet and the whole creative process takes approximately 30 minutes. “We search for a memorable look on the Internet, choose materials (we reuse most of them), and start to cut-fix-paint-shoot. Some recreations take me 10 minutes, some 30 minutes, the longest recreation took 2 hours,” says Alya. Alya said that the most unconventional materials she has used as fabric for her new gowns were flower wrapper and toilet paper.
“We put a lot of thought and heart into our posts on Instagram with hope that it might inspire others to be creative in their own endeavors. And we’re getting a very good feedback from our followers from all over the world. We don’t feel popular but we are loved and supported by so many wonderful people out there,” says a 33-year-old self-taught oil painter and fashion and art lover Alya.
“Fashion never stops, there is always a new project, and lots of new inspiring designs and iconic looks that I would love to recreate,” Alya told us. And we can‘t wait to see what‘s coming next!
