Back in June Ciara walked the red carpet of the 2010 BET Awards dressed to the nines in a knockout black Balmain brocade dress with gold chain detail which she paired with a matching gold studded Balmain belt and black Giuseppe Zanotti lace-up booties. I really loved her edgy runway look, but there’s no way I could shell out 22k on a dress and 2k on a pair of shoes, so I tried to recreate Ciara’s BET Awards outfit on a more budget-friendly level. What do you think of my picks? Yay or nay?

OK, for the record, this look of Whitney Port does not cater to my personal style (I ONLY wear sneakers to the gym), but since every taste is different, I will write this from my younger sister’s point of view who’d kill for this look! So if you’re anything like her and love that I-just-threw-this-on feeling, then pay close attention. Grab yourself a cup of coffee and read along how to rock this nonchalant chic look without the rock/movie star paycheck!

I haven’t seen Anne Hathaway on the red carpet for a while, but when she attended the Love & Other Drugs premiere at the AFI Fest 2010 Anne made quite the comeback in a white lace-panelled Antonio Berardi pencil dress which she paired with nude patent Sergio Rossi slingback pumps. What I also loved was her flawless hair & make-up. Big kudos to her stylist(s)! Want to don the same outfit on a budget? See our wallet-friendly take on Anne’s knockout look below.

How come that whenever I see Kristen Stewart hitting the red carpet it seems like she’s the unhappiest person in the world? I mean, I get that she’s the kind of celebrity who is very protective of her privacy, but c’mon, when you’re walking the red carpet it is an official event, so please put on a nice smile and let us mortals envy you in your super fancy and expensive Valentino dress and to-die-for Brian Atwood satin pumps. Too bad KStew rarely smiles because she’s amazingly pretty when she’s not wearing her grumpy face.
