There's no denying that moving to a new city is tough. For New Yorkers, it's even tougher when they move to Los Angeles -- a city some of them already hate.

For those East Coasters, stylist/actress Casey Jane Ellison has a little tip about how to make the transition to LA as painless as possible: Fake it 'til you make it.

In the video above, Ellison experiments with new LA identities: Should she be an Alexa Chung ripoff? Rihanna's fat, tone-deaf white friend? A Kardashian knockoff? A Coachella festival refugee?

Watch as she transforms from a "mean and sad New York Art School girl" into an "LA-friendly cute, sexy, flirty, hot, nice, and good vegan since birth" by ditching her goth makeup for fresh fruit and colorful "outfies." We love this betch.
