Let's begin with Julianne Moore's look at the 2016 Oscars:
This gown features a less full skirt and no beading, but it does have a plunging neckline and criss-cross straps, and costs a cool $338. A slightly smaller version of her diamond circle earrings is available at Saks Fifth Avenue for $250.
I took a closer look at her bracelet and her coordinated ring. The ring was fairly basic and easy to find; Lord and Taylor carries this channel set diamond ring for a mere $800.
The bracelet was a bit more unusual, and therefore a bit more difficult to approximate. I couldn't find anything with a similar flared field of gemstones, but I did find this lovely rhinestone stretch bracelet at USA Bride for a mere $35.
Let's try another look: Tina Fey, also at the 2016 Oscars.
gown from JJ's House, for $219.
That brings your total for the Fey look to $14,419.
If you think you might be brave enough to emulate Helen Mirren, try replicating her look from the 2016 SAG awards:
this lovely silver gown from Primavera Couture, for $469.
No doubt the stunning diamond bracelet would be prohibitively expensive, but a similar vintage rhinestone cuff can be had for $345 on Etsy.
these lovely multiple-hoop rhinestone earrings for only $205.
And finally, the rectangular, metallic silver clutch: a similar Yves St. Laurent bag from Poshmark will set you back a mere $1600.
So your grand total for pretending to be Helen Mirren for the night would be $2,619 (and a bargain at any price).
Is Sofia Vergara a cheaper date? Let's recreate her look from the 2016 SAG Awards:
Her stunning fuchsia column featured a sweetheart neckline and very straight, simple lines, and her accessories were a coordinated rectangular magenta clutch and a gold and diamond necklace and earrings. If you happen to share her va-va-voom figure, try this gorgeous column from Dressale, for $265.
The matching clutch is an absolute bargain at only $22 from Opentip.com:
We can head back to Etsy for this vintage gold choker, priced at $58:
Similar square diamond, citrine, and gold earrings can be had from Ice.com for $190:
Which brings Vergara's look to a grand total of only $535!! Beauty on a budget!
Vanessa Hudgens brought some youthful fun to the 2015 Tony Awards with this delightful poppy print gown:
She accessorized with simple drop earrings and a metallic gold clutch. The dress is surprisingly easy to copy with this poppy print maxi dress from Lulu's, for only $89.
A sparkly gold clutch was easy to find, from Kate Spade, for $328.
The earrings were difficult to see, but appeared to be small hoops with a gold bauble hanging from each. The most similar style I could find was these gold hoops with dangling hearts, FOR $50 at Overstock.com
And finally, let's try to recreate Winnie Harlow's gorgeous look from the 2016 VMAs:
Harlow's gorgeous ruched and wrapped deep taupe gown was paired with gladiator stilettos and a kind of necklace that hung over her head almost like a necklace-headband hybrid. A similar gown is available from Dolce & Gabbana for only $5,395:
The gladiator stilettos are much less pricey, at only $47 for this pair from Cici Hot:
And for the bib necklace/headband, we return once again to Etsy to find this black bead and crystal bib necklace, for $75:
This brings the Harlow look to a grand total of $5,517.
So I guess the bottom line is, decide who you can afford to be, and be her!! Happy shopping!
