To play the long game in camp celeb, nailing the revamp game from day dot is a sure fire way to stay in the limelight. However, with countless award shows to attend and head-turning looks to champion, one can imagine A-listers and their stylists have to dig deep for out-of-the-box inspiration.

Take Katy Perry, for example, whose dress game for the amfAR gala was strong to say the least. But, where exactly did she get this vampy vision from? Well, if Teen Vogue is to be believed, this Dark Horse just had a little flick through her smartphone.

Donning a red-hot Marchesa gown, the magazine couldn't help but clock on to the outfits uncanny resemblance to the dancing emoji. See?

Curious, no? Which lead us to wonder, how many other celebrities attending the amfAR gala turned to emojiville to spice up their attire? Let's take a look.

1. Elle Flounder-ing

Ever the ethereal princess, Elle Fanning flocked towards the warm shades found within an autumnal leaf for her gala look, with a nod to every Disney fan's favorite text-able tropical fish, Flounder.

2. Kirsten Dunst Bamboo-zles

Unlike the beloved monochrome bear, Kirsten's style sure isn't heading for extinction any time soon.

3. Eggcellent, Heidi Klum!

With one leg bursting from within her yellow gown, Heidi Klum's outfit inspiration was clearly plucked straight from the the pages of adorable emoji animals.

4. Rosie's look is anything but paper thin

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may seem like a glistening, silver, bling-robot on the surface — and she is — but how do you think she's really holding this look together? By channeling paper-clip vibes, obviously.

If you were attending a celebrity award show, which emoji would you base your look on?
