Luxury Look-Alikes For Less: Penelope Cruz & Cameron Diaz’s Oscar Gowns Knock-Offs!


It’s been a number of weeks now since the Oscars & Style Darling eagerly featured a red carpet gallery, which showcased stunners like Penelope Cruz in Armani Prive & Cameron Diaz in Gucci. It was probably one of the most gorgeous turn-outs on the red carpet in a long time.  Fashion critics are still talking about Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom FordJennifer Lopez’s cleavage, Stacy Keibler in gold, & Angelina Jolie’s right leg!

It was only a matter of time before knock-offs of their incredibly beautiful gowns were created for the masses.  As usual, these look-alikes can be found @EDressMe! We recently featured Golden Globes looks worn by Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, & Charlize Theron!

However, if you loved the way Penelope & Cameron looked & are in need of a show-stopping red carpet-esque evening gown, check out the Penelope Cruz-inspired Oscar dress by Faviana ($318.00) & the Cameron Diaz-inspired dress by Faviana ($398.00).

Of course b/c these gowns are so elegant & perfect for many ages, both are currently sold out, but according to the website, they will be able to ship in August.

Until then, check out more from Luxury Look-Alikes, including Alicia Keys in Stella McCartney & striped dresses from Michael Kors & Calvin Klein.  Happy Styling!

Style ABC’s (x3): E is for Emma Roberts, Elle for Kohls, & EDressMe!


is for Emma Roberts, one of the most talked about rising stars in the last year.  Yes, the connection to her aunt Julia helps, but she’s come into her own with roles in Valentine’s Day, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, & most recently Scream 4.  The spokesmodel for Neutrogena & fresh-faced star of the upcoming comedy Adult World, has been hitting the red carpets of movie premieres, film festivals, & charity events. The petite star is one of my newest favorites for her sense of style & sense of humor.  Here we see her in a variety of chic looks which include a sexy cocktail dress by Escada, a Temperley London tunic dress, a trendy separates outfit by Z Spoke by Zac Posen, & also a youthful casual look in skinny jeans & a shrunken blazer. 

 

@Kohl’s, you’ll find a stylish array of affordable designers like Lauren Conrad, Vera Wang, Daisy Fuentes, Dana Buchman, & also  a collection inspired from the pages of ELLE magazine.  The ELLE collection features clothing, accessories, & home decor all at a decent price.  Take these five pieces, for example, which can be mixed & matched with any number of other pieces that you currently have in your wardrobe. 

 

The LBD is darling to pair with some suede platforms & a black wristlet for a date night.  The blue ruffled top is a flirty take on a basic tee that is perfect for bootcut jeans or cuffed capris & strappy wedges for a luncheon on the weekend. I love ruffled floral blouses for their feminine flair, even with cuffed jeans & a ruched shopper handbag when you’re out & about shopping. These chambray shorts are so cute for a pintuck floral tee & wedge slides for a picnic in Central Park on a sunny spring day.  For an evening party, pick out these nude pumps for shirtdress or a chiffon empire printed dress. Don’t forget that nude pumps like these are super flattering for elongating the legline (as per a previous blog here). 

 

 

EDressMe is a website that offers cocktail looks, separates, & everything you may need for a formal event, including prom dresses!  One of my favorite parts of this site is the variety of celebrity-inspired gowns.  Give it just a few days after a big awards show like the Oscars or the Grammys & this site will have knockoff of the designer names worn by celebrities like Carrie Underwood (click here), Halle Berry (click here), & Anne Hathaway (click here).  I’ve selected three knock-offs to show with their red carpet inspirations.  Although the knock-offs still cost a few hundred dollars, it’s really a bargain if you’re seeking to recreate a memorable night of making fashion history! EDressMe is also great for looking for those finishing touches for your special occasion with an elegant selection of footwear, clutches, shrugs, & under garments.  Take a look also at their clearance items up for 90% off!
