Who doesn’t want to look as stunning as Angelina Jolie in her sparkling green Versace Atelier dress, or show off your sexy legs like Jennifer Lopez in her white goddess Zuhair Murad? Any woman would love to look ‘red carpet’ amazing specially when going to a black tie event, but with dresses costing thousands of dollars it almost seems impossible. Well, it is possible and more importantly it is AFFORDABLE! Designers like Marchesa, BCBG Max Azria, and even Tadashi Shoji make affordable ‘red carpet’ dresses that are budget friendly and with a glamorous impact. BCBG Max Azria’s one shoulder pleated silk gown with the thigh high slit can easily duplicate J.Lo’s look for a fraction of the cost at only $498.00 (check their website http://www.bcbg.com/). For the ladies that opt for the demure goddess look like Angelina Jolie at the Golden Globes, BCBG Max Azria also offers a similar dress in heather gray silk starting at a great $298 price tag. But for many, the lure of wearing a dress from a highly sought after designer like Marchesa is simply to difficult to resist, and ladies it is no longer out of reach! No longer do we have to work an extra shift or miss out on this month’s rent because with Marchesa’s affordable ‘NOTTE’ line sold at Sak’s Fifth Avenue, the dream can now be a reality! If you loved Amy Adam’s one shoulder Marchesa number during the Golden Globes, take a look at Marchesa’s Notte draped silk crepe one shoulder gown with a gathered bow detail $990 at Saks.com, YES! It is definitely an eye catching stunner! ‘Red Carpet’ no longer means ‘out of reach’, shop smart, look great, and more importantly stay on budget and be the STAR that you truly are.
