When shooting for the stars seems impossible, remember that dressing like a star, isn’t as far fetch as it once seemed to be. Thanks to online shopping, not only has it become easier, but celebrity gowns have become way cheaper too. I don’t mean the actual gowns they wear, but ones that are celebrity-inspired.
Cheap Celebrity Gowns for all Occasions
The summer always brings many weddings and cocktail parties with it. While you dress depending on the dress code each one calls for, if it’s a family affair, I often find myself having to go all out. That’s why I like to go with celebrity gowns as I know they are a hit!
I’ve always had expensive taste, which makes it hard to get everything you want. When you have multiple events to go to, it means the number of dresses you need multiply. Who can afford to buy more than 1 or 2 dresses per season?
Determining Which Celebrity Gown Suits You
Thankfully, I’ve found these great and super cheap options for celebrity-inspired gowns. Now it’s all about finding the right style for you. The good thing about celebrity gowns, is that based on the celeb wearing it, you can pretty determine if it will suit your look. For example, Taylor Swift is blonde with fair skin and blue eyes, a tall slender physique. If you have the same specs, it’s pretty easy to determine that the celebrity gown style and colours she wore at the Oscars will look good on you.
Options That Work For Different Bodies & Looks
Here are a few that I’ve been browsing through lately that can work for the different looks and body types.
Petite all Over
Mila Kunis’ lavender sheer dress she wore at the Oscars would be perfect for any petite woman. Mila went with lavender to compliment her dark hair and skin.
Petite & Curvy
We all know Kim Kardashian has a ton of curves, so if you share her body type, take a few hints from her, as much as you love or hate her. Kim’s dark feature make the electric blue stand out.
Long & Lean
Taylor Swift has a desirable model like body with perfect blonde hair and blue eyes. If you fit in that category, Taylor is your model to follow. Showing off some leg and cleavage as she did in this dress gives her some curvature.
Katie Perry has the right amount of curvatures in the right places. You can show off anything and you’d look amazing. With her pinup style look, almost all colours look good on her.
Maria Menounos is a perfect pear that requires her to accentuate her shoulders to even out her shape. Thanks to her olive skin, flashy colour like this hot pink number look stunning on her.
Reese Witherspoon is an inverted triangle, but to compensate for it, focusing on the lower half of the body is key, just like she did by choosing this mermaid tail dress. Purple and dark colours on Reese tend to carry really well on her.
Kate Hudson has more of a boyish figure that has little to no curves. To make up for the lack of curves, she opted for a dress that adds some hourglass to her shape. The colour compliments her eyes.
You can look like a star even if you don’t have the budget of a celeb. To know which style would suit you best, pick one of a celeb that shares your body shape:
- Petite all over with dark features – follow Mila Kunis’ feminine style
- Petite and curvy with dark features – follow Kim Kardashian avant gard looks
- Long and lean with lighter features – check out Taylor Swift dress choices
- Hourglass with fair skin and dark hair – Katie Perry is your girl
- Pear shaped with dark skin and light hair – Maria Menounos might know a thing or 2 about what you should wear
- Inverted triangle with light features – Reese Witherspoon can pinpoint what you should go for
- Straight/rectangular with light features – Kate Hudson would be an ideal option for you
