    Grab a fab oversized coat and a massive wine glass or bowl of popcorn for this chic look.

    The androgynous beauty is always a worthy inspiration. Knock it out of the park with an infinity scarf, a leather jacket, black leggings and bold makeup.

    Already have these super-popular braids? Add a funky black hat, massive hoop earrings and a solid-colored bodysuit and you’ll be camera ready.

    Let your natural hair flourish, pull on some slinky pastels—or a voluminous pink fur—and let yourself embody the younger Knowles sister.

    You just need a red mini dress, black knee-high boots and a fab short wig to be the “Star Trek” character that Nichelle Nichols made iconic.

    Pam Grier’s 1974 character was a “whole lot of woman.” Grab a maxi dress with a sexy slit and some platform boots, then go kick some ass.

    Buy a long blonde braid, pull a gown from the back of your closet and be Yoncé.

    Pick out your wash and go, grab a black t-shirt and raise your fist to evoke the power of this revolutionary.

    Or as you probably know her: “Your queeeen to beeeeee!” from “Coming to America.” Blue Ivy did it flawlessly last year.
