The (vegan) Oscar Look for Less!

Published on February 24, 2009 by   ·   5 Comments Pin It

From jaw dropping gowns to ridiculous jewels, celebrities pulled out all the stops on Sunday night’s red carpet.   Were you gagging for Taraji P. Henson’s vintage diamond necklace?   How about Natalie Portman’s to-die-for Stella shoes?   Once again, GirlieGirl Army fan favorite the vegan/ cruelty-free/ eco Look for Less returns for a delicious cameo!   Remember that couture gowns like the ones your favorite Actress wore usually start at $20,000.   We know it sounds nuts, and it is.   And remember, those chicks don’t buy those gowns, they are almost always either gifted or loaners.   Try these more affordable, and still gorgeous alternatives to this years Oscar trends.

The Mermaid Silhouette was all over Sunday night’s crimson carpet. Though nobody wears it better than Daryl Hannah; Vanessa Hudgens, Beyonce, and the stunning Diane Lane flaunted their shapely bods in this figure hugging silhouette.

INSTEAD: Try this gorgeous purple eco-friendly and vegan gown from Dalia Designs (made-to-order) or this black off the shoulder taffeta number by Jovani ($450).

Shimmer and Sparkle: Glitz and 1920’s glamor were on full display with Tina Fey and Anne Hathaway who opted for fully beaded numbers.

INSTEAD: Try this more casual silver sequin sheath from Miss Me ($79).

Or this long, sex-kitten number by Robes de bal soiree ($164).

And how about Angelina’s Lorraine Schwartz emeralds? WOW.   The earrings alone were worth enough to feed every starving child in Africa.

INSTEAD: Instead; try these Victorian Style Olive Green Teardrop Earrings for $32 at

The color Red: Those seeking to avoid the paparazzi usually shy away from red on the red carpet, but Heidi Klum, Amy Adams, and Amanda Seyfried all looked ravishing as ladies in red this Oscar season.   Watch out Kelly LeBrock!

INSTEAD: Try this Red Charmeuse Dress by Faviana ($178) OR this sweet organic tissue knit cotton “Movie Star Dress” by eco-friendly designer Kate Organic ($170).
