Celebrity Look 4 Less – Angelina Jolie in Michael Kors

by Celine on February 16, 2010

I think we can all agree, whether you like her or not, that Angelina Jolie is one of the sexiest women on the planet. Because she wears a lot of streamlined silhouettes and a lot of black, however, she manages to almost always look both current and classic. Now that she’s a mom she seems to gravitate towards longer, more covered dresses but not so for her hubby Brad’s premiere of Inglourious Basterds. This Michael Kors dress has a classic cut but the leather gives it the perfect “Angelina” edge. It also has pockets, which automatically wins it points in my book. Fortunately the look is simple enough that it can be easily duped.

What? Michael Kors Fall 2009 strapless leather dress, Dior sandals

Mango Strapless Leather Look Dress

This Mango dress is missing some of the sweet details of the original but the basic look is there. The strapless neckline and of course the (faux) leather make this dress sexy but the suggestiveness is offset by the knee-length hemline, just like in the Michael Kors original. There’s no seam-definition at the waist but the material clearly hugs your curves in all the right places. For well under $100, this dress deserves a go.

Sele Strapless Faux-Leather Dress

Now this version by Sele is probably least like the original, but it’s also my favorite. The matte faux leather might lack the “specialness” that the original has but the hint of a sweetheart neckline adds interest to the top half of the dress. I’m also a fan of the subtle darts, vertical seams and defined waist. All in all this is a well-tailored, pretty dress, and at less than $100 (again?! Man, we’re good) why not give it a whirl?

    What are the shoes Angelina Jolie is wearing in this outfit? Are there any good “steal” versions of the real thing? 😉
