"You don’t have to spend movie star money to get the movie star look," says Fashion and Beauty Editor of Star Magazine, Tara Kraft.
This Academy Awards season, the red carpet look is sleek and elegant with a hint
of glamour according to Kraft. You too can have clothing and accessories worthy
of Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron.
Signature tinsel town accessories and elegant wardrobe staples can help make a
great first impression whether you’re out on the town, on a date or going
to a job interview. Kraft recommends gold or silver strap sandals, high heels
and faux diamonds to give a kick to the classic T-shirt and jeans combo or to
top off your favorite little black dress.
"Diamonds never go out of style," says Kraft. With diamonds at their
peak of popularity, good quality faux diamonds aren’t hard to find. Accessory
specific stores like Claire’s are a great place to find picture-perfect,
faux diamond necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
Looking for a specific outfit or dress that rocked the red carpet? You can often
find designer knock-offs on websites like avsstyle.com or better yet, find the
exact outfits at discounted prices at Yoox.com. Though these items might be a
little more costly, simply investing in a few key pieces is often more than enough
to add a little spice in your life. You can even mix and match designer pieces
with what’s already in your closet to create an elegant and original style
that’s all your own.
Confidence is key and the one thing that money can’t buy, so be sure to only
purchase clothing that will wear well, is comfortable and will not require constant
adjustments. Emphasizing your best traits and camouflaging the negative can be
the difference between risking wardrobe malfunction and being the ultimate beauty
queen. "If you wear it right, you will look like a red carpet princess,"
