LOOK 4 LESS: RED CARPET FASHIONS


Happy Friday!!!

Being award season and all, and with the Oscars just around the corner, I think people are looking at lots of pretty, fancy, long evening gowns!

So, I though I would post a couple dresses worn by stars on the red carpet and offer a very similar look, which allows you to copy their look, at a more affordable price!

I have been a big Claire Danes fan since her days on the popular, yet short lived, ABC show "My So-Called Life!" I also happen to be a fan of the beautiful, simple, coral dress by Calvin Klein that she wore to the Golden Globes this year.

CLAIRE DANES RED CARPET LOOK:


Dress by: Calvin Kelin
Event: Golden Globes 2011

CLAIRE DANES LOOK 4 LESS:


Dress by: After Six (style #6613)
Price: $185.00

While looking at red carpet fashions online, the vibrant blue dress that Jessica Alba wore to the 2011 Orange British Academy Film Awards caught my eye. There is really no way to perfectly match the stunning color and fabric, but I found something that offers a similar look in the same color family!

JESSICA ALBA RED CARPET LOOK:


Dress by: Atelier Versace
Event: Orange British Academy Film Awards 2011

JESSICA ALBA LOOK 4 LESS:


Dress by: Dressy Collection (style #2835)
Price: $183.00

Anywho, I've added this as a new section to my blog called the "Look 4 Less" under the tab at the top and shall continue to do posts in if you like them! So, let me know what you think and if you want more posts like this!

...or send me a picture of a look you like and I'll see if I can find it for less! I love a good challenge! :)

Side Notes: A sincere, "Thank You" to the lovely Katie from "Love is Everywhere" for her super sweet words about me on her blog...it means so much! :)

Oh and check out this great story and touching video about a lost wallet returned 40 years later...love it!!!
