Not only is Coachella one of the most star-studded music festivals, but it’s also the most fashionable. The event kicked off last weekend with A-listers like Kate Bosworth, Katie Perry and Rihanna rocking everything from Chanel to Coach.
But, leave it to King Bey to silence all the buzz about Rihanna’s big purple fur or Fergie’s fringed Giuseppe Zanotti boots. The most talked-about outfit is Beyonce’s $4,790 floral maxi dress from Saint Laurent. The “Flawless” superstar completed her ensemble with a suede fringed vest, ankle booties, a black fedora and sunglasses. The entire outfit is said to run about $7,000!!
I absolutely love this look and it’s just perfect for the whole Coachella/Woodstock festival vibe. Besides the fact that it might cost, 1 or 2 months salary, here are few things you should know about that dress:
They say imitation is the highest form of flattery and when it comes designer handbags, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent and Celine, are among the most coveted. These designers are known for setting the latest trends and even inspiring other notable designers. No, I’m not talking Canal Street knock-offs.
I’ve found these eye-catching designer look-alikes that will satisfy your craving for a Celine Boston Tote or Knuckle Ring Clutch without spending a fortune.
Victoria Beckham never seems to have an off day when it comes to fashion. The businesswoman, mother of four and former Spice Girl is known for her impeccable style, especially when she’s jet-setting across the globe.
So it’s only natural that she was spotted at the airport, during New York fashion week, wearing a classic camel wool coat with matching pants, leopard print bag and a hot pair of Nicholas Kirkwood cap-toe pumps.
The morning after the Grammys Kim Kardashian was spotted in NYC, which was a bone-chilling 26 degrees by the way, wearing a crop top and cargo pants. Everything about the entire ensemble (pictured above) is just wrong in so many ways, except for those pants. I want those pants.
The high-waisted camo cargo pants are perfect for running errands, birthday parties with the kids or you can even dress it up for a date night. It’s definitely a practical yet stylish piece for mommies on the go. Kim could have owned this look if she ditched the obviously shrunken or borrowed crop top and wore peek-a-boo cropped sweater instead.
Kim’s Faith Connexion camo cargo pants will run about $800 (insert sarcastic laughter here). With that said, I went on a bargain hunt to find some similar looks with more sensible price tags.
Since Tamera Mowry-Housley announced her second pregnancy back in January, she has made every effort to wear the cutest bump-clinging ensembles. I’m loving her maternity style, especially this red hot number that she wore on today’s episode of The Real.
The talk show host posted this pic on her Instagram page with caption “Loving this look for @therealdaytime today!” The dress is from Helmut Lang and retails for about $300, and her shoes are by Nicholas Kirkwood. She completed the look with a silver cuff and matching earrings.
Varsity jackets are a hot trend right now and have always been a classic look for the fellas. Yet, Beyonce’s gold sleeved varsity jacket, which she recently wore to a basketball game, took this look to another level.
Only King Bey can pull off chic, comfy and glamorous all in one outfit. I like that she paired the gold with all black, and the t-shirt also added a casual feel to the entire ensemble.
The jacket is a limited edition from Opening Ceremony and includes a hidden mophie pack to charge your Android or iPhone! But wait…it’s also unisex! So for a retail value of $465, I guess you can say this jacket is worth its weight in gold.
Let’s be real though. I don’t need a jacket to charge my cell phone, and I can’t see myself wearing it for more than one season. This look requires a good knock-off, and I found a couple for under $100.
It was over a month ago when Naomie Harris turned heads in this Alexander McQueen blazer and contrast cuff trousers. Yet, I would love to see this trend carry over into spring 2015.
I love how the red cuffs add a dash of flair to the classic black pants suit. The British actress also kept the accessories simple and chic with black lace up pumps and a classic clutch.
The pants are sold separately for $895 at Saks Fifth Ave; a high price to pay for a possibly short lived trend. I found a similar look from designer Cedric Charlier for much less, and it’s the perfect color for a spring/summer outfit!
It’s a hard act to follow when it comes to red carpet gowns. The dresses worn by celebrities during awards season are typically custom designed or part of a special collection.
In other words, if you’re looking to snatch Kate Hudson’s cut-out Versace gown be prepared to spend thousands of dollars.
Shearling boots have been making a reappearance for the past few winters, but I love what designers have done this season. It’s a practical look with a sleek design that’s easy to dress up or down; unlike a pair of classic UGGS.
Jimmy Choo perfected the trend with a glazed leather upper and rubber sole. Although, with a price tag of $1500, it’s more dreamy than practical. I featured it earlier this week in my round-up of the most stylish cold-weather boots, but I was determined to find a pair of look-alike for less. Actually, I found two.
