A glowing and pregnant Natalie Portman graced the red carpet in a stunning canary yellow Prada gown paired with exquisite vintage Tiffany jewels from 1910. She was nominated for her portrayal of Jackie Kennedy in the biopic “Jackie” and channeled her character at the Golden Globes.
The '60s-inspired long-sleeve, jewel-encrusted shift dress, and sleek pulled-back hair paid homage to Jackie O's iconic eveningwear style. She looked remarkably like the former First Lady. It's one thing to see her embody Jackie Kennedy in the film. However, seeing her gracefully glide down the red carpet was a whole different experience. Portman's retro elegance was a breath of fresh air.
Margot Robbie's stunning Chanel look at the Golden Globes was so incredible it deserves its own category. The Australian actor looked divine in a couture ensemble from the legendary French fashion house. Robbie's show-stopping outfit featured a beautifully embroidered bustier top with a vibrant mix of sequins and beads — 4,750 to be exact!
And get this: the intricate creation took a whopping 225 hours to make. She paired the top with a sleek white satin crepe skirt and wore some of Chanel's most exquisite jewels.

Read on and feast your eyes on these celebrities who wore the cheapest red carpet items
When you picture the red carpet, what comes to mind is outfits costing more than what you earn in a month, or even a year. The red carpet is a place for celebrities to get crazy with their fashion and show off who they are this award season. You might not be expecting that the thousand-dollar dress your favorite actress was wearing is actually only a hundred bucks, but occasionally, that's just the case!
Celebrities are people too, and sometimes, they don't like going crazy with price tags. So here's a list of celebrities who proudly, or not so proudly wore something "cheap" to the red carpet.
Blake Lively, "Vintage"
The beautiful and dashing Blake Lively is now not only considered to be one of the prettiest ladies but also one of the most successful ones as well. She has made a big name for herself and is now a proud mother.
However, before Blake Lively got to all this success and fame in her life, she often showed up on the red carpet wearing dresses from Forever 21. This was still back in the early 2000s but Blake still lied to many people and told them her dress was from a vintage collection.
Lorde, St. John
A lot of people know Lorde to be a great music sensation. Well, that is mainly because she is one. She is one of the most talented artists in the industry. However, people often forget that this musical sensation loves to wear vintage fashion and go thrifting.
One of her favorite pieces of thrifted clothing was this St. John's suit that she got for $50. Even though that might seem like a bit much for a thrifted item, Lorde clarified that it is only the upper end of what she would pay.
Natalie Portman, Maternity dress
It looks like even Natalie Portman was done wearing designer clothes and decided to ditch them for something a lot more comfortable and affordable. Instead of wearing an outfit from some famous designer, Natalie attended the 2017 Luncheon for Oscar Nominees in her Topshop dress.
That is absolutely right. She got a maternity dress from Topshop for just $65 and wore it to the Oscars. She looked beautiful in it, and she definitely looked a lot more comfortable than most of the other guests there.
Anne Hathaway, Second-Hand Clothes
Anne Hathaway is quite a famous actress and is seen in many different movies. She was also seen promoting the benefits of using second-hand clothes! In order to show her commitment, on the promoting tour for her movie, Colossal, she wore a dress that was only $15.
Not only that, but she had said that she would only wear second-hand clothes throughout the promotional tour for her movie.
Demi Moore, H&M
When attending the A&E Upfront Awards that took place in New York back in 2011, Demi Moore decided that she was going to opt for something a bit more on the casual side. While Demi was wearing some eye-catching pieces like Elise Overland and Kimberly Ovitz, the most eye-catching piece that she wore was the red pair of pants from H&M.
The piece that brought all of this together was, of course, her choice of footwear. She wore black heels from Tabitha Simmons.
Kristen Bell, & Other Stories
Kristen Bell, the actress popular for her roles in "Veronica Mars" and "The Good Place", has quite an eccentric and fashion-forward taste in her clothing. She was seen on her way to an award show in New York in a very summer-appropriate orange citrus suit that comes in around an affordable $200.
She got a double-breasted jacket and a pair of matching pants both from the chain & Other Stories. Bell is definitely rocking the look.
Eva Mendes, Goodwill dress
When Eva Mendes had to attend her very first movie premiere of "The Others", back in 2001, when she was still not as famous, she decided to take matters into her own hands. That is right, she went in and bought herself a dress.
Not just any dress, Eva Mendes made her very first red carpet debut with a dress that she got from Goodwill for just $6. She could not afford the expensive looks that her colleagues were going for, so she rocked a Goodwill dress. Needless to say, she definitely owned the look and even did her own makeup.
Jessica Alba, Bee Print Outfit
The actress once used to mainly focus on her movies, but these days she's more of a businesswoman. Her business, The Honest Company, offers cheap clothing at local Targets, so it shows that she'd prefer more affordable outfits too.
Jessica chose a bee print button-up shirt from Victoria Beckham's line of clothing along with a bag from the Who What Wear collaboration. Her choice of the bag was an affordable decision that anyone can make for $24.99.
The great and beautiful Zendaya has more than one entry on this list. This one is for the outfit she wore to the Kids Choice Awards in 2017.
We all know that Zendaya is a very pretty lady with great fashion taste. This is why she knows she does not need to spend much money on her clothes to make herself look good. She wore a dress that was only $40. Moreover, this dress came from her own line of clothes, Daya.
Kate Upton, Sandals
Not every article of clothing needs to cost more than your bank account for a celebrity to picture themselves wearing it on the red carpet. Despite what is a costly dress, Kate Upton chose to spice things up with these golden-colored Sam Edelman Sandals.
The dress makes you think that the sandals she's wearing probably cost an arm and a leg, but that's where you're proven wrong. We're not sure about the orange dress, but all you need is $100, and the shoes can be yours.
Eva Longoria, Skirt
Eva Longoria would seem like a godsend for young girls looking to buy clothing that looks expensive but is actually cheap. Here, the Latin celebrity is wearing an outfit from her own collection to create a festive look.
She completes her white top with a black pencil skirt with lace on the bottom from her very own Eva Longoria collection. Head out to your nearest store or order online, and don't hesitate, as it costs $60 for the pencil skirt.
Ashley Madekwe, Uniqlo
If you think you recognize this actress, you probably most likely remember her from her role in the "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" series. Ashley Madekwe went to an event wearing a shirt that is actually within reach of most people.
She wore a tee shirt from Uniqlo to one of her premieres. You would be even more surprised to know the price of her shirt; it was only $15. Ashley proves to everyone that you do not need expensive clothes to look pretty.
Gabourey Sidibe, Bohemian Torrid
We have Gabourey Sidibe more than once in this article! She simply rocked her Torrid look on the red carpet! Here she is dressed with Bohemian Torrid from head to toe for her look at the SXSW that took place in Austin, Texas.
She was out there showing off her figure in the beautiful floral sleeve dress that she had gotten. She paired up her floral dress with a pair of lace-up peach cage-blocked heels.
Shannon Purser, Asos Green Dress
Many fans with a Netflix subscription will definitely recognize the star from the hit show "Stranger Things." She keeps it classy and simple with a green printed dress from Asos, which definitely makes it look good, as we can see here.
The entire dress is made up of a green floral pattern with a design worthy of a high price despite it not being so. All it took her was $108 for the dress, and for the same price or lower, you can get one for yourself too.
Lupita Nyong’o, Aldo Heels
Here we have the widely famous actress Lupita Nyong'o, and we can see her looking stunning during a red carpet event. More specifically, the Golden Globe Awards event. Lupita was rocking the Appointment gown from Calvin Klein.
Of course, she would need some cute shoes on her feet to go with her pretty dress. She pulled up some silver heels that made her look really pop. Turns out those cute expensive-looking shoes were from Aldo and were found for $45. Aldo really is popping off as a celebrity favorite.
Lana Del Rey, Mall clothes
Very few celebrities would ditch their preplanned expensive designer red carpet outfit for something they just got at the mall. Well, Lana Del Rey is one of those celebrities.
Lana Del Rey decided to ditch the red carpet dress she was already going to wear for something she bought at a mall she visited with her boyfriend. We don't know for sure what made her change her mind, but we'd like to think her boyfriend said she looked cute in the mall dress.
Shay Mitchell, Earrings
If there's one type of style we are never worried will fall off the fashion radar in the far future, it's an all-black ensemble. Black will always be considered fashionable. This is the outfit Shay Mitchell chose with a black top, pants, jacket, and heels.
The entire getup is enough to keep all eyes on her constantly, which is definitely the goal here. The look is completed with a pair of earrings from The2Bandits at only $38 a pair.
Miranda Kerr, H&M Dress
If you're ever conflicted about what to wear to the red carpet, then the color red is a very good choice. Unless you're worried about blending into the carpet, that is. Miranda Kerr chose the same theme with her red dress, Jimmy Choo heels, and lipstick.
She wore a red H&M by Night dress, and fans can now get the same dress at their local stores or buy it online. The dress falls under a hundred bucks costing an exact total of $75 for anyone interested in buying it.
Hailey Baldwin, Dress and Hoops
We need more big stars like Hailey Baldwin to prove that you don't need big money to create a solid look of fashion and style. The star gives it her all on the red carpet posing in front of the cameras and she didn't even have to break the bank to get the job done!
You could say she made a big splash with minimum effort thanks to a Meshki dress costing $48 and LUV AJ hoops charged at $45. All in all, it isn't a bad deal for a whole look which costs only a hundred dollars worth of money.
Winona Ryder, Thrifted Dress
Winona Ryder was an absolute beauty back in her day, and she still is now. If you think she looks familiar, you probably recognize her from the Netflix hit show "Stranger Things". She is another celebrity who admitted to wearing clothes that she had thrifted to her red-carpet events.
She even went as far as to wear a dress that she thrifted for just $10 to a red carpet. She has also admitted to wearing multiple thrifted outfits to these events and even said that she repeats some outfits every few years.
Olivia Palermo, Banana Republic
Olivia would seem to have been swayed by the clothing collection at Banana Republic because she can't seem to stay away from it. Her entire outfit consists of an iron pleated skirt and a similar metallic tunic top.
She liked the top so much that she wore another one around her waist, and by the smile on her face, we can see how happy she looked with her choice. The skirts cost her $118, with the tops at $88 for one top each.
Taryn Manning in Dress
You don't always need a dress that shimmers brightly to help you to stand out, as Manning proves with her blue and white dress combination. Her look features a white dress she wears under a long blue coat and finishes with blue heels.
The "Orange Is the New Black" star initially complained about not having an expensive dress but she revealed that the dress made her feel beautiful after she tried it on, That's $199 well spent on the red carpet!
Sharon Stone, Gap Shirt
Sharon Stone was planning on wearing a dress by Vera Wang to attend the Oscars back in 1996. However, unfortunately just one day before the event itself, her dress was ruined by a delivery man. The delivery driver had dropped the dress by accident. If that is not enough, he even accidentally ran over the dress as well.
In order to make her Oscar appearance, Sharon had decided to take help from costume designer Ellen Mirojnick, and they paired a simple Gap shirt with some designer pieces that she had in her closet for her Oscar look.
Victoria Justice, Mini Dress
The Nickelodeon star was the source of many crushes for young teens growing up watching "Victorious" and she's still winning our hearts. The actress and singer chose to show up in a shiny dress in front of a whole crew of cameras.
The blue mini dress she put on was bought from PrettyLittleThing, and it's a definite steal for the price. For $43.75, we're not sure if you'll be able to find a better deal anywhere else, no matter how hard you look.
Chrissy Teigen, Earrings
Chrissy chose an all-black ensemble for her big night, going with a black dress along with a pair of tasseled earrings to complete the look. Despite the shiny dress, the one thing to stand out is the pair of earrings she put on for the big night.
She chose a pair of BaubleBar earrings that look as if they cost more than your college tuition, but the truth is you can get yours too! There are four shades for you to choose from, and all you need is $38 in your bank account.
Jennifer Lewis, Nike
When it comes to supporting their beliefs, celebrities can go a long way with what they want to do. For example, Jennifer Lewis went to the Emmys in 2018 wearing a Nike shirt.
People would probably think that she just wanted a sporty, new look for the red carpet, but that was not the case entirely. Jennifer wore the Nike shirt to show her support for Colin Kaepernick since Nike was also supporting Colin's social protest causes.
Milo Ventimiglia, Lapel Pin
Accessories on a big celebrity usually go for a lot as they usually go with valuable jewelry, but that's not the case with Milo's Suit. To get ready for the red carpet, Milo wore a classy black suit, but instead of something expensive, the star chose a cheap pin.
The herringbone lapel pin from The Tie Bar was a nice touch to the classy black look of Milo. This is the kind of magic you only need $8 to try on your own.
Mandy Moore, Heels
It's almost unbelievable how you can find cheap items that look expensive enough to complete a rich-looking red carpet getup, and heels are what we're talking about. Mandy finished her long red floral dress with a pair of Ann Taylor heels that are just to die for.
The star chose the wine-colored heels to match the theme of her dress, and now you can get your own Ann Taylor heels too. You can choose the same color or browse through other color choices, and all you have to pay is $100, not counting discounts.
Tina Fey in Silk
Celebrities going all out with their red carpet dresses is expected, but Tina Fey showing up in a silk top is definitely not. Here the actress can be seen wearing a silk top from J.Crew.
She was photographed wearing this silk top with a honeycomb-like tiger print all over the silk clothing. It is definitely one of the cheapest choices for a red carpet night, with the garment costing only $120.
Darby Stanchfield, Retro Outfit
If you're tired of seeing classy dresses and gowns on the red carpet, then why not refresh your eyes with Darby Stanchfield wearing this retro ensemble? It features a silky golden top with long sleeves that shimmer brightly, especially under light.
The pants are so long that it looks like she could have gone barefoot and no one would know. Looking like something out of a thrift shop, you can find this combination for only $24.
Olivia Palermo, Banana Republic
A lot of people love Olivia Palermo for her fashion. She has an amazing sense of fashion and tons of girls take ideas and inspiration from her outfits. Even though Olivia has so much spotlight, she still chooses to go with familiar brands you see at the mall, such as Zara, Topshop, and the Banana Republic.
The burnt orange dress that she was seen wearing on the red carpet is actually available from the Banana Republic for just under $200.
Jennifer Lopez, Forever 21
The world-famous Jennifer Lopez that everyone knows is not only a pretty face, but she is also a very talented artist. She has the confidence to make whatever she is wearing look absolutely stunning on her.
That is probably why Lopez decided to go to the Mawazine International Music Festival photocall in 2015 wearing her Forever 21 pants. And yes, she paired it with a beautiful top with $25 pants from Forever 21. As expected of her, she looked stunning.
Drew Barrymore, Thrift store
The new addiction of Gen Z is going thrifting for clothing. It is a great idea for people who want a wider selection in their wardrobe but are running on a budget. However, you would not really think that wealthy celebrities would rather skip the dubious pleasure of sifting through previously-owned clothes.
And you would definitely not think celebrities wear thrifted clothes out to red carpet events. Seems like Drew Barrymore thought differently because she wore a vintage Janine Dress that she thrifted for just $25 at the Nylon + Express August Denim Issue Party.
Jennifer Nettles, Heels
The Emmys have seen a lot of stars show up on the red carpet with stupidly expensive dresses that cost more than someone's kidney. On the other hand, Jennifer decided to try out a pair of heels that really do look like they belong on the red carpet until you find out the price.
She chose a pair of gold Aldo heels to match the gold color scheme of her dress, and she got the job done at a very low price. It just shows what you can do with only $50 and a good sense of what type of clothing looks well and what doesn't.
Stella Maxwell, Pretty Little Thing
Celebrities seem to have found a gold mine of fashionable clothing pieces as they can be seen showing up on the red carpet wearing low-priced dresses. Stella Maxwell is another new addition to the same list we can see with her Pretty Little Things dress.
The model from Victoria's Secret looks well put together in her cream dress, and we're not sure if her being a model has anything to do with it or if it's just the dress. Why don't you find out for $61.25?
Octavia Spencer, Skirt
If you didn't know you could get red carpet dresses for a cheap price for yourself, then you do know now. The Michele Studio skirt worn by Octavia Spencer made us go crazy with its shimmering black design.
The star chose this skirt for a daytime dress combo, and she absolutely killed the look. Last we heard, the dress was put up for sale. For $51, anyone who wished was given a chance to wear it can check out Addition Ellie.
The now-famous Zendaya is not only known for her sense of fashion and her beautiful looks but also for her great talent when it comes to acting. It was not always the case for the rising star. Zendaya had her first red-carpet appearance in 2010 when she was still 14 years old.
Instead of going for a designer outfit or some fancy dress, young Zendaya had decided to put together an outfit from the clothes that she already owned. Clothes that she got from Target.
Selena Gomez, Forever 21
Selena Gomez is known just as much for her career in music as she is known for her childhood career as a Disney kid. The young pop singer and actress, also known for her sense of fashion, was seen wearing Forever 21 at a red-carpet event.
Back in 2011, at the Disney Fulfillment Gala, Selena Gomez was wearing a dress that she had gotten from Forever 21. In all fairness to her, the store does sell some very cute outfits so we are not surprised by her decision!
Bryce Dallas Howard, Topshop
There are people who want more sizing options for their outfits when going out. Of course, this also applies to celebrities, and Bryce Dallas Howard is one of those people. She has worn a lot of department store clothes to different red-carpet events, and she reasons that she likes having more options for size 6 rather than having just one option.
No wonder she wore a dress from Topshop that was $240 at an event of the 22nd Critics' Choice Awards. Needless to say, she rocked her look at the event.
Janelle Monae, White Boots
If you want to stand out against the carpet for your big movie release, then why not try out a pair of bright white boots to make you shine? You can go the Monae route with these white boots from Asos, and you don't even have to break the bank!
Paired up with a pink suit, Janelle shows us how to style it the right way to make a truly fashionable combination for the carpet. At $103 a pair, it's not that bad of a deal if you're interested in hopping on the white boots trend.
Milla Jovovich, Forever 21
The actress rose to popularity due to her role as Alice in the Resident Evil franchise, but her personality in real life is more down-to-earth, as we can see in her clothes. She showed up on the red carpet in a humble price-range outfit.
She looked absolutely stunning and featured an outfit of a striped Forever 21 top along with a pencil skirt and silver heels. The top alone is a money saver as it only costs $20!
Melissa McCarthy, Aldo Shoes
When Melissa McCarthy showed up at the International Film Festival in Santa Barbara, she had on quite a fancy outfit for the event. Since her dress was quite dazzling and sparkly, she had to pair it with glittery shoes.
So she did, which became an eye-catching part of her outfit. This is mainly because, upon inspection, people discovered that Melissa McCarthy got her sparkling shoes for $46.13 from Aldo, and you will most likely still find these pumps there.
Aisha Tyler, Sequined Dress
Why spend thousands on expensive clothing which you're only going to wear for a night, only to keep it at the back of the closet after wearing it once? Aisha Tyler seems to have the same idea as she took to Zara to buy a more budget-friendly option.
The floral print dress she found is one we're sure is perfect for any night out on the red carpet, and you can find one too at your local Zara. Luckily, you can get this dress in all sizes to find the right one for you at only $130.
Busy Philipps, Clutch
Adrianna Papell has a knack for celebrities looking for something cheap to bring to the red carpet, and Busy Phillips falls into that category. Busy Phillips chose a clutch from Papell that looks more than what it actually costs.
The star apparently made the right choice with her clutch, as you don't need a diamond-studded bag to hold your phone and makeup. A cheap clutch that costs only $82 can be just as stylish while also holding what you need it to.
Nicole Richie, H&M
Nicole Richie is a beautiful woman who is also a fashion icon to many young ladies out there. Her look at the Baby2Baby Gala back in 2014 was even more of a reason why so many people look up to her as a style icon.
She went into the gala looking as stunning as ever, not in some designer dress that she had made, but in a very affordable and fashion-forward H&M mock neck dress that came down to her ankles. Incredibly, the dress she wore was just $40!
Gal Gadot, Aldo sandals
The gorgeous actress is recognized by many as Wonder Woman in the Wonder Woman movies. She is not only a sweet, personable woman but is also a greatly talented performer.
When Gal Gadot went into making her debut on the red carpet for her feature film, Wonder Woman, looking beautiful in her red gown that had cut-outs in them, she chose to go with a very unusual pair of sandals. She chose to wear $50 Aldo sandals instead of some fancy high heels.
Elizabeth Banks, Duster
The Black Panther cast showing up with expensive dresses at their red carpet opening was sure to catch the cameras' attention. On the other hand, Elizabeth Banks chose a different path with her outfit for the movie's premiere opening night.
Wearing a black and white cheque patterned duster, Elizabeth didn't hesitate to stand out amongst all her other expensively dressed co-stars. The gingham duster from Nasty Gals cost her only a measly $25, which is just a drop in her bucket of money.
Yara Shahidi, Earrings
Yara Shahidi decided on a golden look for the VMAs, as we can see, and to complete her look, the star matched a pair of earrings with her golden Zimmermann dress. If you think the stand-out dress needed to be paired with expensive earrings, wait till you hear how much the jewelry really cost.
The celebrity went to Porcelain Chyna for a pair of cheap golden earrings and it would seem that she had found exactly what she was searching for. She made her appearance at the award show wearing bell-shaped earrings, which cost her only $55.
Beanie Feldstein, Headband
Beanie Feldstein attended the Golden Globe Awards, looking like a princess in her blue sapphire gown. Of course, she would need to have a matching headband with her dress as well. However, even though she looked like she belonged to a royal family, her headband crown did not cost her a fortune. Her headband was found for $42 on the very popular Baublebar.
It shows that when you have the proper accessories to go with the right outfits, an imbalanced price doesn't matter.
America Ferrera, Ann Taylor
During a red carpet event, America Ferrera wore a polka dot sweater and matched it up with a pencil skirt and some cool red pumps. The very pretty polka dot shirt that does look quite fancy comes in for $60 on sale from Ann Taylor.
While America wore her shirt with a skirt and some pumps, it is very clear that this shirt would look just as cute when paired with jeans and some sick sneakers!
Olivia Culpo, Dress and Skirt
The star designed both pieces of clothing by herself for the red carpet, and as we can see, it turned out pretty well. Despite it being designed by a star, it didn't fit into the price range of what you'd normally expect from a red-carpet dress.
The shirt dress and shiny black vinyl skirt combination was her own creation, and it didn't take much for her to complete the image she had in mind. It just shows you what you can do with $100 worth of cloth and stitching skills.
Julie Bowen, Ear Danglers
Celebrities on the red carpet seem to love their earrings being bold and beautiful to accentuate their dress-up style and Julie isn't much different. The "Modern Family" star chose these earrings from BaubleBar for a red carpet evening.
The bold and bright yellow color and the earrings' design ensured she had enough of the camera on her throughout the whole night. All it took was a measly $50, and she was ready to head out.
Ashley Graham, Sweater
Most people are worried about putting on an ugly sweater for days out during winter, but if you know yourself well, you can find out what looks good on you. This is proven with Ashley Graham as she shows up wearing a cropped sweater in New York City.
The stylish sweater from Naked Wardrobe gets the job done by keeping her warm from the chilly environment around her. For $25, that isn't that bad of a deal for a good-looking sweater.
Melissa McCarthy, Peplum Top
It just shows how a simple combination of a neutral top, skirt, and heels can take you to a lot of places, including the highly anticipated red carpet premieres. For Melissa McCarthy, the same could be said for her simple but eye-catching choice of clothing.
The star makes up her look with a long-sleeved black top, a black skirt with yellow flowers, and a pair of yellow heels. We don't know about everything else, but you can get a similar top for only $69.
Julianne Hough, AQ/AQ Maxi
It would seem as if Julianne doesn't shy away from keeping it cheap on the red carpet as this isn't her first time showing up with a budget dress. The "Dancing With the Stars" judge would choose this dress for her sixth appearance, and despite the low cost, it fits her well.
The AQ/AQ Maxi is a cutout fashion piece that suits her sense of style pretty well, along with her standard of keeping it cheap in front of the camera. We can be sure that the low cost of $127.50 wasn't even a dent in her credit card.
Pharell Williams, Adidas
We all love Pharell Williams for his music. He has some of the best songs out there, and they are popular for a reason. Not only because of his music, but he is also quite the dashing man with good taste in fashion.
Maybe that is exactly why Pharell Williams wanted to dive a bit deeper into the world of fashion and move away from designer clothes for a second. He went to the Grammys in 2015 completely dressed up in Adidas. In our opinion, it was quite the handsome sporty look that he had going on.
Kerry Washington, Turtleneck
Kerry Washington, who is mainly known for her role in the show "Scandal", has proven to everyone that you do not need to give up a part of your fortune to look good for the night. At the Sundance premiere, she was seen to be wearing a J.Crew turtleneck.
Once we looked into the turtleneck a bit more, it turned out that the Fair Isle sweater now has a price tag of only $50. It might still be expensive for some of us, considering it is only one piece of clothing, but it is definitely something for a red-carpet outfit.
Gabourey Sidibe, Torrid
Even though we are moving towards a more accepting society of different body types, it sadly was not the case for Gabourey Sidibe back in 2009. Gabourey was just going to be on her first big break, her first major red-carpet event for the Cannes Film Festival.
Gabourey Sidibe had to go and buy herself her own dress from Torrid. Not because she wanted to, but because she just had to. All the other designers had refused to dress her, so she had no other options. Luckily, things have since changed.
Janel Parrish, Romper
Rompers at big celebrity events have become more of a common sighting, and Janel Parrish chose that exact route for her outfit choice of the night. Here we can see her in a cream dress that leaves her shoulders bare. The actress completes the look with matching heels.
The "Pretty Little Liars" star bought the dress from PrettyLittleThing, as it is appropriately named. You can get the same deal for the low price of $50, so don't miss out on your chance if you're actually interested.
Helen Hunt, H&M
It is a great honor to be invited to the Academy Awards. It is only natural to think that you would want to go all out and look the prettiest when walking down that red carpet. Helen Hunt proves that you do not need designer outfits and dresses to pull that off.
You can look amazing, confident, and beautiful just by wearing what you have. Just as she showed up to the Academy Awards in 2013 wearing a gown purchased at H&M.
Lana Del Ray, SheIn
We have the incredible, talented Lana Del Rey, who has more than one place on this list. At the Variety Hitmakers event back in 2021, Lana Del Rey was seen wearing this amazing outfit in which she looked absolutely gorgeous.
However, when the fans and the people looked further into the outfit, it was soon brought to attention that Lana was not wearing anything designer. In fact, she had gotten her dress from the very popular Gen Z shopping stop, SheIn for just $18!
Connie Britton, ASOS
During the red carpet premiere of the movie "All Is Lost" back in 2013, Connie Britton wore a dress that was much more affordable for people. Connie was rocking a dress from ASOS and looked very beautiful in it too.
The dress itself was not that fancy, and it was not even that expensive either — it was just $71! Leave it up to the celebrities to rock affordable dresses from the mall at red-carpet events.
Kerry Washington, Kitsch Barrette
Kerry Washington has more than one feature on this list. In this one, she went to the afterparty of the Vanity Fair Oscars looking absolutely stunning.
Of course, she wore a two-piece that would cost most people a fortune. However, it is not the outfit that we are looking at. If you look at her accessories, such as the barrette that she has on, it is a Kitsch Barrette which is one from a set of three. You will find this barrette for just $12 on Sephora.
Eva Longoria, Blazer
Most celebrities who open fashion brands usually charge a price too high for the average consumer to buy, but Eva Longoria knows better. The Latin star brought her own twist to the red carpet with a suit from her own collection, and we can't deny how good it looks on her.
The white blazer from the Eva Longoria collection stands out, especially throughout the whole outfit. The star has kept her prices especially low, and for $99, anyone can afford the same blazer for themselves.
Jessica Alba, Grana dress
Jessica Alba is a well-familiar face in Hollywood. She has proven time and time again that she is easily one of the most stylish celebrities out there.
For her look at a red carpet event, Alba went with a trench coat that surely was quite expensive, around $2499, but when you take a look at the dress she wore under the coat, it was only a $79 dress that you can get at Grana. You would not guess that there is an affordable piece of clothing in there when you take a look at her outfit.
Kate Middleton, Zara
The Princess of Wales loves to shop from affordable shops such as Zara. In fact, she is a pretty big fan of clothing items and accessories from Zara.
When you take a look at her outfits, you can tell that she was not lying about her love for the brand either. In order to see the premiere of "Mandela", the Princess (then Duchess) was seen wearing a necklace that she had gotten from Zara. Upon further inspection, it came to light that the necklace was $35.
Gabrielle Union, New York and Company
The spokesmodel is a star that could make anything look good, which has led to the brand choosing her to wear their dresses for some time now. It was the same this time around, too, as New York and Co offered her this combination of clothing for her red carpet appearance.
The collection features a romper and jumpsuit in an all-black style and despite it looking cool, things will definitely get hot with this black outfit. All in an entirely affordable package of $79.95!
Octavia Spencer, Two Piece
Celebrities who wear cheap dresses on the red carpet seem to want to keep following the trend, and we can't say we aren't happy about it either. Octavia Spencer follows the exact trend of showing up on the carpet in a classy mock two-piece dress.
The entire outfit consists of a white full-sleeve shirt and a long dark skirt with a red floral print all over the skirt. Despite the high-quality look, the entire outfit is only $268.
Olivia Culpo, Wilfred Sweater
Olivia Culpo seems to have fallen into the bandwagon of wearing low-cost dresses to award shows and premiers. In this picture, the star made an appearance wearing thigh-high boots and a sweater despite there being a snowstorm at the time.
She finishes her entire look with a large black jacket with a big poofy hood, but the star of this look is definitely the Wilfred Free for Aritzia sweater. It costs about $125 if you're interested in buying something similar.
Julianne Hough, Aldo Heels
Cheap shoe brands such as Aldo must seem like a dream come true for celebrities looking for a quick pair of shoes to wear to the red carpet. Julianne Hough seems to have got what she wanted with these heels she wore to the Fine Arts Emmys.
The star completed her classy and shiny look with these Nesida heels from Aldo, and we can see why she bought these pairs of heels for the night. For almost $40 you can grab these for yourself to complete a quick red carpet-worthy look.
