OK, so the Oscar 2011 Look 4 Less challenge was on, like Donkey Kong...okay so not really, but I just had to say that! LOL!
Anywho, the 2 looks that got the most votes from the evening, which you wanted to see at a more affordable price were Natalie Portman's pretty and pregnant in plum Rodarte gown and Mila Kunis's lovely in lavender Elie Saab gown!
Truth be told, this was not easy and I knew going into it that finding a more affordable dress that came close to Mila's was going to be a "no-go," and well, it was just that. Despite finding some other very pretty lavender colored dresses!
However, finding a pretty good duplicate for Natalie's dress, as seen below, was doable after lots and lots of hunting!
Dress by: Rodarte
Jewelry by: Tiffany & Co.
Shoes by: Jimmy Choo
Event: Oscars 2011
So, without further ado, I bring you my finds for Natalie Portman's Oscar attire in a Look 4 Less, including dress, accessories and shoes! Keep in mind that I think the off the shoulder mini sleeves could most likely be pulled down a bit further to create a more similar look.
Dress: eDressMe New York
Earrings: Urban Renewal
Buy: Urban Outfitters
I will admit that the look I found does not quite capture the flattering cut of the Rodarte and is still a bit pricey, as far as affordable fashions on this blog go, but it is still far more affordable than the multi-thousand dollar price tag attached to the original!
Also, I chose to go with gold tassel earrings, instead of the unique reddish purple ones she wore, but think it adds a little something and if you paired it with a gold clutch and gold heels, instead of plum, you would be good to go!
Always remember that with any look, you can always change things up a bit to flatter you and your body shape more or simply suite what you like! Think of celebrity looks as inspirations for looks and ideas that you might incorporate into your wardrobe or for a certain occasion.
Hopefully, this is something along the lines of what you were hoping to see! Thank you again for all the super sweet comments and positive reactions to this new section of my blog! So fun!!! :)
