5 Award Season Looks For Less

Award season may be over, but the fashion talk has yet to end. This year, tons of A-listers brought A-game to match when they hit the red carpet, and many want in on some of the best ensembles (minus all the cash). So here are some thrifty versions of this season’s hottest looks for the next time you have a reason to get glam!


  1. Amy Adams at the Golden Globes

Amy stunned at the Golden Globes when she showed up in a one-shoulder periwinkle number draped to perfection. Achieve the same look with a more wearable hemline and a set of sparkled earrings to match.

Rhinestone Drop Earrings, $2.90 at Forever21


  1. Katy Perry at the Grammys

Before she took the stage to perform for millions, Perry balanced her gorgeous curves perfectly with a shimmery knee-length piece straight off the runway. A glittery boat neck hitting right above the knee can give you a similar silhouette, and strappy shoe makes legs look even longer.

  1. Keira Knightley at the Oscars

Although Knightley caused some controversy all season with her more whimsical looks, the pregnant star still arrived to the biggest night in Hollywood sporting something free-spirited. To capture that same effortlessness, match a bohemian ensemble with a sweetly feminine hair piece.

  1. Julia Roberts at the Screen Actors Guild Awards

She may have only been a presenter that night, but Roberts definitely deserved major props for her tailored jumpsuit at the SAG awards. Keep it low key like she did by wearing tousled waves and a simple nude lip.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs Lip Color, $5.59 at Target


  1. Reese Witherspoon at the Oscars

Witherspoon’s unexpected color-blocked gown exuded tons of class and glamour at the Oscars. A figure-hugging dress complete with sharp lines and a spritz of dry shampoo will mirror both Reese’s classy garment and voluminous hairdo.
