red carpet chic: the evening gown guide

Awards season has us regularly drooling over one incredible gown after another… and dreaming about what we would wear if we ever got the chance to saunter down the red carpet. Our non-movie-star salaries might not necessarily afford us Dior and Valentino, but it is possible to find glamorous formalwear that’s Hollywood-ready without blowing your entire paycheck. We’ve collected a few affordable options, all under $500, that we would be proud to sport down any crimson walkway (even if it’s just the one in our imaginations).

 

 

Angelina looked smoking hot in this drapey black Jenny Packham gown at the SAG awards… but we think she would have rocked this sexy Halston Heritage Halter just as well.

 

 

Our favorite look from the SAGs was Michelle Williams’ unique lace shift – a classic, ladylike silhouette meets screaming, siren red. An equally sexy option would be this ADAM sheath dress, whose gorgeous lace is amped up by a surprising pop of red.

 

 

The always-gorgeous Mila Kunis looked sleek and sexy for the Golden Globes in this black chiffon Dior. We dare you to compare it to this lovely Max & Cleo look, — all wrapped up with a bow.

 

Lea Michelle wowed at the SAGs in this flowy, one-shoulder number (not to mention the thigh-high slit!). Even though this Amsale version is slightly more subdued, we love its sweet champagne color and romantic, bodice-hugging shape. And if you’re still desperate for some leg, a tailor can make it happen for you in a snap.

 

Emily Blunt had us majorly envious of her emerald gown at the SAG awards – a simple, glamorous silhouette in an absolutely stunning shade. This ONE by Contrarian halter gown is in the same pretty jewel tone – made even sexier with its backless cut.

The Help and Modern Family were big winners at last night’s SAG awards. And while screen veterans Jessica Lange, Betty White and Alec Baldwin also snagged tops honors, we have to nod our heads to the following women for winning over the red carpet with style and grace.


Dianna Agron looked flawless in this pink number topped off with just the right amount of ruffle and a chic bohemian hairstyle.

Ashlee Simpson took us by surprise when she stepped out onto the red carpet last night. Looking fabulous from head to toe, she proved she’s a fashion force to reckon with.

Oh, hello Emily Blunt! It’s not enough that you have an awesome British accent, but you also have an amazing figure that looks good in any style. Green can be a risky red carpet shade, but Emily really rocked it out!


Emma Stone why are you so adorable? This beauty can do no wrong! Yes, her hair color changes, but her distinct eye for fashion does not.

Kaley Cuoco looked like a princess last night. Her hair was fairy tale perfect and her dress was straight out of a story book. Congrats to her for recently getting engaged to her prince charming.

Lea Michele has made some bold fashion choices this award season, and she continues to show us she’s not afraid to stand out with this show stopping number.

It seems Naya Rivera can do no wrong when dressing for the red carpet. On top of being blessed with exotic features, she always chooses designs that compliment her body shape.

Beautifully strapless with a tousled up do, Viola Davis turned heads with this gorgeous look.

Sofia Vergara was looking muy caliente last night! This magenta silk gown hugged every curve of her body in the most flattering way possible. With her hair was pulled back and wearing just the right amount of diamonds there was no overlooking this style star!

Michelle Williams was definitely my favorite look of the night. This gorgeous red dress looked perfect against her porcelain skin. She looked timeless and sexy without going over the top.
