Remember the time that Sharon Stone sported a simple black T-shirt from The Gap at the 1998 Academy Awards aka Oscars, which she had pulled from her very own closet?

Well, I was lucky enough to attend the T-Mobile Sidekick LX Launch Party at Paramount Studio in Los Angeles last month, and true to my usual style and the theme of this blogspot, I put an affordable look together straight from my own closet, just like Ms. Stone did. However, my look was not just the T-shirt, but the entire ensemble!

Anywho, I thought it might be fun to show how you can create and put together a look that is suitable for the red carpet, which is usually graced by celebrities sporting the latest fashions right off the runway that often hold a designer name and very high price tags, or any evening out, but by instead wearing things that are anything but pricey or designer, unless purchased at Marshall's or TJ Maxx for a fraction of the price!

Below is a picture of me at the T-Mobile Sidekick LX Launch Party on the red carpet where you can see the look I created, relatively last minute for the event. I even got compliments on the below look from celebrities who were sporting the designer looks and price tags, and one asked where I got my necklace! :)

You can read all about the T-Mobile Sidekick LX Launch Party and see more pictures over at where I post every Wednesday as The Actor if you are interested! :)

That is so can get a clear, overall idea of the look, and below is the same picture of me on the red carpet at the event, but with a price breakdown of each and every item I am wearing, where I bought it, and the total for the look.

Do you want to create the above look for an event you are attending or a fun evening out?

Well, since I had put my look together from things I had collected over the years and were already in my closet, I have browsed online and found you a look very similar to the one I wore on the red carpet last month. Each of the items I found are currently available online in case you want to purchase any of the items in the look!

My Affordable Red Carpet Look Recreated:
Total Look = $ 92.69

Hopefully this gave you a fun idea of how even looks you see in the magazines, on blogs, TV, etc. showing looks from the red carpet, can be affordable and from all of your favorite bargain shopping places!

Thanks so much for stopping by and feel free to let me know your questions, thoughts, ideas, or anything you would like to see here and I will do my best to answer them and put a look together that suits your needs and wants, and I hope you have a Wonderful Week ahead! :)
