LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Academy Award Winner Kate Winslet has scored yet another victory - you chose her as the best-dressed lady on the Oscar red carpet with 29 percent of the vote on Accesshollywood.com. Well good news because now you can get her winning look for a whole lot less thanks to affordable dress company Faviana.
Kate’s asymmetrical Atelier Yves St. Laurent by Stefano Pilati was a knockout worth thousands. According to Faviana’s Style Consultant Beth Barnes, “this was one of the most challenging dresses we had to do, finding this gorgeous steel gray color.” But they made it work! Faviana’s version is nearly identical, down to the lace tulle accents and is a fraction of the price at $298!
Angelina Jolie came in a close second in our poll with 26 percent of the vote. Her black Elie Saab costs thousands and features a sweetheart neckline and goddess draping. Faviana’s spot on replica, in silk chiffon, will retail for just $298. Of course, no one could take their eyes off of Angelina’s brilliant Lorraine Schwartz emeralds… get a cheap chic copy at www.diamondshark.com for only $89.
“The whole feeling of belts is back and it’s making a ball gown sexy again,” Beth says. Sarah Jessica Parker was perfection in a priceless “barely mint” Dior Haute Couture gown featuring a bustier top, belt and full skirt. Faviana captures the magic in a white version with crystal beading for only $400.
These dresses will be available starting in April at www.faviana.com. And for more Oscar worthy style steals, tune in to Access Hollywood tonight!
