Admit it. A huge part of the reason you watch awards shows is to drool over red carpet gorgeousness or to gawk at the catastrophes.
One of our favorite dresses from the 2011 Grammy Awards was [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jennifer Lopez'[/lastfm] sassy silver stunner that kept her goodies covered up, but let her long legs be the showcase.
While her outfit would be a little casual for the 2011 Academy Awards, it would be a perfect piece to wear to an Oscar party. Check out our breakdown and see if you can rock J.Lo’s lustrous look!
A lot of other celebrities took themselves too seriously or in an absurd costume (see: Lady Gaga’s egg or Katy Perry’s angel costume). Jennifer Lopez got it just right with a “demure” long-sleeved, mirror-ball mini dress. Her dress is Pucci and it is hard to knock off designer couture, but the idea of a long-sleeved sequined dress is just right for any season and many occasions.
We really like this black, mixed-metallics mini dress by Guess.
Guessing from the red soles, Jennifer Lopez’ silver, spiky shoes are Christian Louboutin and probably the same amount as one month’s rent on a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles. But don’t despair–you can get shoes that are almost as cute with the same hard-edged effect for a fraction of the cost.
Sam Edelman has some fab open-toed black heels with spikes on the back.
You can get a rad sequined clutch for cheap at just about any vintage store. If you don’t of any vintage stores around you, placed like Forever 21 and H&M always have glittery accessories on hand. Women can’t live without a little bit of bling.
This vintage clutch on Etsy is a perfect example of what you can get on a budget that rivals items hundreds of dollars more expensive.
Jennifer Lopez loves her chunky jewelry and glam earrings. In order to get the same look as J.Lo, you only have to mimic the shape, but you can don any version of that you want.
We like these cheeky Betsey Johnson pieces at Karmaloop. Leopard print asymmetrical angel wing earrings and a massive rhinestone heart with a golden key for less than $100? We are whipping out our credit card right now.
