Well, maybe impersonator is the wrong word.
Lenk's Instagram is a treasure trove of what he calls a #LenkLewkForLess, a kind of budget take on red carpet couture. Lenk's images are at once a deconstruction of awards show fashion, a celebration of the red carpet, and really good budget cosplay. His most recent image is of Kristen Stewart on the Cannes carpet.
@immzstewart is CILLING IT AT CANNES IN HAWT COUTURE. She's serving up early 2000's rave party meets #madmaxfuryroad warrior bride meets @robynkonichiwa "call your girlfriend" REALNESS. And you can too, for waaaay LESS, the #LenkLewkForLess! @stevenalan tote bags (OBVS not mine, that place is FANCEEE and I'm a #Maxanista), mesh Laundry bags, and a non slip rug pad: ALL OF IT 4 $FREE from my HAUS. Tho I may PAY FOR IT LATER AKA KARMIC LAYAWAY when I slip on the Rug. Small price to pay for #hausholdhifashun!
Understated yet totally chic. This is truly some high fashion that can be fashioned out of nothing but a tote bag and a can-do attitude.
#LLFL presents The Emancipation of Mimi...'s FEWT. We nearly lost Mariah this week when her Louboutin went DOWN. Why pay full price for those red bottoms? A LEWKBOUTIN by #LenkLewkForLess gets the JOB DONE. I mean - don't get me wrong - you're still gonna fall down. But the price tag will hurt less. Hurt less, HEEL more, with #LenkLewkForLess. Get the Mariah LEWK: Cut up skirt and pantyhose top from Julianne Moore LEWK, gold paper foil from Huntsman LEWK, cheap ass heels from costume bin, drawn-on with marker fishnet hose: $FREE. FREE yourself and your wallet with #LLFL. (SHAUTOUT to @courteandresen & @preszlerwoodshop for requesting this one!)
Here, Lenk recreates the moment when MiMi lost her foot and gained just a bit more icon status. We love the drawn-on fishnets. Chic yet budget. And why buy Louboutin when you can get construction paper and tape?

"Hobo vs. Boho" Lenk captions this pic. And why choose? With two Lenks we have two looks and two possible identities. Both cheap, both impossibly chic. And for proof that it's not all about the red carpet...
