Have you ever looked at LizzoBeyoncé or Rihanna's outfits wishing that you could rock the same look. That's actually not a far-fetched idea because we can all sport celebrity trends, especially with a little bit of guidance. We can always count on style expert Melissa Chataigne to bring us the on-trend fashions at every price point for every body type.

This time around she's showing us how to style some celeb-inspired looks on two different models, Kendra Lauren, who is a size 2, and Making the Cut star Jihan Amer, a size 16 model. Once again, Melissa has proved that you don't need a celeb-level budget to have great style and that there's a way for all of us to make any trend work.

Keep on scrolling to see the three looks that Melissa styled for both models and to find out more about the pieces she selected from Amazon, H&M, Target, Missguided, Dr. Scholl's, Zara, Tommy Bahama, and more.
