But now fans have a chance to wear the exact ensemble they've loved seeing on their celeb role models - thanks to some stars cashing in by selling the clothes they've made glamorous appearances in on the resale site, Depop. 

The second-hand site has over 30 million users, and sellers include models, singers and reality TV regular. 

They've got wardrobes most of us could only dream of - but for those famous faces that enjoy keeping up with the latest fashion trends, it makes sense that they have to get rid of some of their previously worn attire. 

And some have seemingly made a pretty profit out of it; model Mia Regan is regularly selling items on the platform, with prices ranging from £20 to £165, depending on the pieces. 

In total, the model has earned £2.914 from the sells on her second-hand page.  

Meanwhile, Charli XCX was spotted selling a revealing Thierry Mugler jumpsuit she is thought to have worn in one of her music videos for £577 ($700). In total, Charli has sold £9,853.63 ($11,967) worth of items on the website.  

Elsewhere, singer Lily Allen sold one of her jackets for £300, and High School Musical sensation Ashley Tisdale sold a Chanel tote bag for £2,000 from 2009 on the platform as well. 

Stars such as Molly Mae and Amanda Holden have been upfront, admitting that they donate profits from their clothes to charity, however others have remained tight-lipped. 

Molly-Mae, who joined Depop in 2021, admitted that she was a little apprehensive about creating the account. 

She said: 'I'm kind of nervous to say but I have started a Depop. I had one years ago before Love Island and I used to love it… 

'But I've restarted one and spent literally all day sorting things out for it. I put things up for really low prices. 

'There isn't much on there but keep your eyes peeled. All the money made from it will be going to charity,' she added. 

While Amanda previously admitted she flogged her and her children's old clothes online in order to raise money for her charity. 

Proceeds from the items went to Theo's Hope, a charity she created in memory of her stillborn son Theo
