We may not be getting invited to red carpet events like the Oscars anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dress ourselves up to the nines at least once in a while.
This year, once again, the style icons of Hollywood have left us in awe and given us a lot to be inspired by. Including Nancy Odell from Entertainment Tonight, in this gorgeous black gown by our very own Gauri and Nainika!
Here are some of the other Oscars 2015 looks we absolutely adored - and how you can sneakily steal them without having to rob a bank!
1. Lupita Nyong’o
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friends, but we think Lupita might be breaking that stereotype. She was a vision draped in strands with 6,000 pearls - better known as a custom Calvin Klein. We might not be able to suggest a reasonable replica, but we could get you close... Try this Miss Selfridge Cream Deco Maxi Dress and pair it with danglers and embellished sandals for a night you’ll never forget!
Steal the Look: Cream Decco Maxi Dress
, Clementine Scallop Detail Heels
, Spiked Pearl Danglers
2. Rosamund Pike
We speak for the general population when we say we’re still not over her performance in Gone Girl
, and then she goes and dazzles us in a sexy red Givenchy number. Safe to say, our chills aren’t going away anytime soon. Channel her (the person, not the character she played!) in this Miss Selfridge gown, you’re pretty much guaranteed to drop jaws wherever you go.

, Chelsea CZ Surround Drop Earrings
, Dune Burex Framed Clutch
3. Jennifer Lopez
We’re pretty sure the Elie Saab gown worn by Jennifer Lopez is going to play a starring role in our dreams for days to come. If you feel the same way, you should have a look at the Astha Narang gown we found! It’s not as risque as JLo’s choice, but you’ll still feel like a princess once you put it on.
Steal the Look: Peach Sequins Embellished Gown
, Luxe Faux Stone Chandelier Earrings
, Copper Wire Crochet Clutch
4. Anna Kendrick
If you didn’t believe it before, her appearance at the Oscars is yet more proof that she really is the fairest of them all. We might sound a bit biased here, but has she ever looked less than perfect? Imitate her flawless elegance with this ruffled maxi dress from Femella. Pair it with pretty danglers, and you’re good to go!
Steal the Look: Front Ruffle Maxi Dress
, Natasha Floral Drops
, Touch Of Rhinestone Ring Set
5. Jennifer Aniston
She may no longer be the fresh-faced Rachel from F.R.I.E.N.D.S
, but she never fails to look gorgeous! While she could wear anything off the rack and still look gorgeous, this time she decided to stun us in a nude Versace gown. You might not be able to get her genes but you can get her look with an embellished cream gown, like this one from Forever New.
Steal the Look: Gretta Sparkle Silk Maxi
, Alyssa Diamante Heel
, Glam Floral Cocktail Ring Set
6. Cate Blanchett
When in doubt, go with black. When not in doubt? Add a Tiffany necklace over that black John Galliano for Maison Margiela dress, like Cate Blanchett did for the Oscars this year. To say we were surprised after her uber-glamourous look last year would be an understatement, but it was definitely a good surprise. It just goes to show exactly how versatile she really is.
Steal the Look: Mango Black Maxi Dress
, ASOS Patent Box Clutch Bag
, Blue Alloy Necklace
7. Zoe Saldana
Her Neil Lane necklace might have stolen the thunder, but we can't not
give props to the Atelier Versace gown she donned for the evening. It flattered her post-pregnancy figure in a way that had us green with envy. While her picks might be a bit (um, a lot) out of our budget, this draped Mango gown isn’t! And while it may not be a bespoke number, this necklace from Forever 21 is not likely to beggar us...
