The stars glittered and shimmered on the red carpet of the Oscar’s and those bold choices were real winners. So who look best on the red carpet? Definitely Sandra Bullock in her gold Marchesa. This was a stunning column dress which would set you back $35,000. You heard right, but don’t worry, because our interpretation from edressme.com will also make you like a winner. This is a dress that’s going to make you look long and lean. You could wear it to a prom. You could wear it to a very special occasion. But wherever you wear it, the eyes are going to be on you. I also love the fact that she wore her own diamond earrings which were gorgeous from Tiffany, estimated at $92,000. And look at what we found at JCPenny. Simulated diamond earrings for only $229. So let's see the two side by side. The Marchesa would set you back $35,000, the dress from edressme.com only $425. Cameron Diaz cleaned up her act and it really paid off. Her Oscar Dela Renta dress was stunning. Well you to will look fabulous when you wear this dress which is available now at camillelavie.com. I like the fact that it shimmered. It was also very flattering to lots of figure types. A pear shape it would look good in this dress. Her jewelry was also beautiful from Cartiea. But look at these hoops with simulated diamonds that we found at JCPenny for only $178. So let's see the two side by side. The Oscar Dela Renta dress for $11,290 and then dress from CamilleLa Vie, only $299. Clue was definitely the color of the evening. And the most bold choice was Maggie Gelanhaal. But also one of the best. It’s a Dries Van Noten dress and look at our interpretation of the dress. Also daring and it is a great dress. This is a print that you can enjoy wearing all summer long. You could put a jean jacket over it and it can be your go to evening dress. So let's see the two dresses side by side. The Dries Van Noten estimated at $2,000 versus the dress we found at JCPenny, only $90. Let's not forget the guys. George Clooney, you know, he commented that the big exploding dresses were like a mine field that you have to get around. But guess what, all the ladies were hoping to get into that mine field and he look wonderful in his Giorgio Armani suit. And you can also look great in this interpretation that we found at the men’s warehouse. This is the timeless look from Giorgio Armani for $4,300 and our interpretation, available at men’s warehouse rent it for only $149. So there you have it, the best dresses on the red carpet and text us how you can get the look for less. In New York, I'm Katlean DeMonchy
