The Academy Awards are like the “big football game” of fashion. We watch all award season long waiting in anticipation of the biggest, most celeb studded, most dazzling, most jaw dropping night of fashion. The stunning makeup looks, the gorgeous custom gowns, the sexiest heels imaginable, and of course…the jewels! Since the stars are fairly dripping in them.
And while we’re watching from home, wishing we had Harry Winston on speed dial to loan us a few rocks for our next night out, we begin plotting the most intense, fashion season of our year—wedding season. That’s right…spring is just around the corner, which means almost every weekend is flagged for nuptials.
We’ve studied all the best accessories from this year’s biggest red carpet events so far to bring you 25 affordable ways to steal your favorite celeb’s red carpet style, because we’ll take any excuse (even if it means enduring invasive questions from relatives, and shelling out for endless toasters and towel sets) to dust off our finest black tie regalia and get all dolled up.
