A nine-year-old from Australia is being applauded for her recreations of celebrity outfits using just household items and food.

Riley Dashwood dresses up as celebrities ranging from Kim Kardashian to Emma Stone, and shares her interpretations on Instagram - where she has amassed more than 97,000 followers.

To transform herself into Beyonce when the singer announced she was pregnant in 2011, the nine-year-old donned a red dress and held an orange balloon in front of her.

For her Kim Kardashian recreation, Dashwood relied on tinfoil to fashion herself a dress resembling the celebrity’s 2016 Met Gala look.

Dashwood’s interpretation of Nicki Minaj wearing a green and white wig was created using lettuce, cauliflower and broccoli.

Each of Dashwood’s transformations takes about 15 to 45 minutes, according to the nine-year-old, who told Bored Panda that she works on the outfits with her mother and father each weekend.

“It's a family project we thought it would be funny to do together," the nine-year-old said.

In addition to tinfoil and vegetables, Dashwood also uses objects such as pasta, cheese graters, and trash bags to complete the looks - which each receive thousands of likes on Instagram.

For her version of a post by fitness influencer Julian Daigre, Dashwood used buns to recreate abs.

“I love these!” one person commented.
