Liam Martin, a 17-year-old student from New Zealand, painstakingly recreates the outfits and poses of glamorous celebrities, including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce and Lana del Rey.

He uses cheap wigs and props – a packet of noodles serves as Taylor Swift's hair, while Nicki Minaj's pink wig is made of candy floss.

He started posting the photos to his Instagram profile about a year ago and he now has more than 1.5 million followers. We republish a few of our favourite looks here; follow him to see more.
