    Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren

    Sienna Miller portrays Hedren in the upcoming BBC drama 'The Girl', which explores Alfred Hitchcock's
    unhealthy obsession with the actress during the filming of 'The Birds'.



    Miller bears a striking resemblance to Hedren, who helped advise her on the role. But it's not the first time Sienna
    has played a style icon - she transformed herself into Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick for the 2006 film 'Factory Girl'.

    Naomi Watts as Princess Diana

    The Australian actress is set to take on the role of Princess Diana for the 2013 film 'Caught in Flight'.



    The film will document the last two years of Diana's life as well as her relationship with heart surgeon
    Dr Hasnat Kahn. Watts, who admitted she was "terrified" of taking on the role, has been snapped sporting
    Diana's trademark hairstyle and Nineties make-up whilst shooting the first of the scenes for the movie.

    Charlize Theron as Britt Ekland

    Charlize Theron starred as Swedish actress Britt Ekland in 2004's 'The Life and Death if Peter Sellers'.
    Ekland married comedian Sellers in 1964, later divorcing him in 1968.



    She was originally unhappy about the casting of Theron, claiming she was too tall and too old to portray her, but
    changed her mind after seeing the finished film. Theron invited her to be her date at the film's Cannes Film
    Festival premiere, where she became highly emotional when she saw it.

    Audrey Tautou as Coco Chanel

    French actress Audrey Tautou played Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel in the 2009 biopic 'Coco Before Chanel'.



    The film detailed Coco's life up until she established her eponymous design house, including her poor childhood,
    her failed attempt to launch a singing career, as well as her tragic romance with Boy Capel.

    Sporting Coco's trademark pearls, monochrome ensembles and breton top, Tautou looked eerily similar
    to the real life fashion icon. Karl Lagerfeld reportedly said he would have prefered Penelope Cruz in the role.

    Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe

    Michelle Williams' portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in 'My Week with Marilyn' won her an Oscar nomination
    in 2012.



    Although she didn't take home the golden statue, she won wide praise for her depiction of the fragile
    screen icon. As well as managing to look uncannily like Monroe, Williams perfected her cutesy tone of voice,
    unique walk and gained weight to approximate the late actress's famous curves.

    Sienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick

    Sienna Miller undertook the role of tragic Andy Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick for 'Factory Girl' in 2006.



    Miller was said to have fully immersed herself in Sedgwick's hedonistic lifestyle, even making friends
    with the late Sedgwick's former accquaintances.

    The actress cut off her famous touseld, 'boho' locks for the part and even attended the film's premiere wearing
    a pair of big pants over tights, Sedgwick style.

    Kate Holmes as Jackie Kennedy

    Former 'Dawson's Creek' star and wife of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, played Jackie Kennedy in a
    television mini-series about assassinated US President JFK.



    Owing to pressure from surviving members of the Kennedy family, the series, called 'The Kennedys',
    was never shown in the US but was aired in the UK and Canada.

    Giorgio Armani designed some of the outfits worn by Holmes, and said she shared an "extraordinary
    resemblance" to the woman we know better as Jackie O.

    Jennifer Love Hewitt and Audrey Hepburn

    Back in 2000, Jennifer Love Hewitt starred as Audrey Hepburn in the ABC biopic 'The Audrey Hepburn Story'.



    The actress we most readily associate with 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' didn't make a bad Hepburn
    but no one will ever quite match up to the real thing.

    Seen here reenacting Hepburn's iconic role as Holly Golightly in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', Love Hewitt has
    more recently been linked to romcom 'Why Can't I Be Audrey Hepburn?', which has mysteriously disappeared
    into the depths of Hollywood obscurity despite being 'in production' for the last 10 years.

    Andrea Riseborough as Wallis Simpson

    The Madonna-directed 'W.E.' may have recieved less than preferable reviews but leading lady Andrea
    Riseborough nailed it when it came to looking the part.



    With costumes designed by the Oscar-winning Arianne Phillips, the film, which tracked American divorcee
    Wallis Simpson's love affair with King Edward VIII and his subsequebt abdication, certainly looked the part
    even if its storyline was a little off-kilter.

    Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn

    Cate Blanchett's portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in Martin Scorsese's 'The Aviator' brought her
    numerous awards, including an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2004.



    She perfectly embodied Katharine Hepburn, apeing her striding walk and vowel-strangling New England
    drawl with aplomb. Wearing Hepburn's trademark androgynous chic she made a whole new generation aware
    of one of the original style icons.

    Helen Mirren as The Queen

    Dame Helen Mirren won an Oscar for her portrayal of the Queen in the 2006 film of the same which
    centred around the death of Diana, Princess of Wales and the effect it had on the Royal family.



    Mirren said her physical transformation was not particularly arduous, despite what people may expect.

    "Sadly, I used very little makeup. I didn't spend hours in the makeup chair with all kinds of magical things
    being added to my face. I did very little make-up. It had more to do with the set of the face really. The set of
    the head, the set of the mouth," she said.

    Madonna as Eva Peron

    Queen of Pop Madonna played Argentinian First Lady Eva Peron in the 1996 screen adapation
    of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical 'Evita'.



    She wore 370 different costumes, earning her a Guinness World Record for the most costume changes
    in a film.
    She recieved praise for her portrayal and was even awarded a Golden Globe, although she has not managed
    to match up that silver screen success since.

    Karen Gillan as Jean Shrimpton

    'Doctor Who' actress Karen Gillan took on the role of Sixties model Jean Shrimpton in the BBC drama
    'We'll Take Manhattan', shown in early 2012.



    It detailed Shrimpton's reationship with photographer David Bailey and their trip to New York to shoot
    for 'Vogue'.

    Many said Gillan - a former model - didn't match up to Shrimpton's iconic beauty, and that her
    performance was rather wooden too. Nevertheless, the real Jean Shrimpton reportedly gave the
    performance a thumbs up.

    Meryl Streep and Margaret Thatcher

    Meryl Streep's performance as Margaret Thatcher in 'The Iron Lady' bagged her another Oscar
    in early 2012.



    Her resemblance to the former Prime Minister didn't stop at her hairstyle and clothes, she also perfected
    Thatcher's plumby English accent.
