Take Her Look [For Less]

There is nothing better to wear to a black-tie affair than a classic black and white ensemble, and that’s exactly what actress Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the The Broad Museum Black Tie Dinner on Sept. 17 in Los Angeles, California.

Paltrow attended the museum launch party in what InStyle reports are Monique Lhullier separates — a black and white floral-print top and black wide-leg pants. She completed her look with some shine to frame her face in the form of Norman Silverman diamond earrings while adding some height to her look with Brian Atwood pumps.

Although Paltrow’s stunned in her elegant black and white ensemble, the price of even one of these pieces is equally as stunning. Take her trousers, for example. Her Monique Lhullier Wide Leg Tuxedo Pants will set you back a lofty $1,295 — and that’s not even considering her Monique Lhullier top! But if you love this look, there’s no need to shell out upwards of $1,000 to make it yours. We’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate Paltrow’s entire look for under $200. Read on for the results!

Finding a black and white floral top to rival Paltrow’s Monique Lhullier style was no easy task, but we finally landed on this floral top from Choies.com. Featuring a similar box cut and cropped style, this top will deliver a silhouette and print reminiscent of Paltrow’s top for a fraction of the cost, coming in at only $16.99.

Since wide-leg trousers have been increasingly popular, finding a pair of these trendy pants to pair with the top was fairly simple. We quickly found the Premium Crepe Wide Leg Trousers from Missguided, which offer a similar wide-legged, high-waisted silhouette, but for much less than the Monique Lhullier style’s $1,295 price — these trousers will only set you back $60.

Although we love Gwyneth Paltrow’s head-to-toe Monique Lhullier look, we believe that you don’t have to spend like a star to look like a star. Paltrow’s Monique Lhullier tuxedo pants cost $1,295, but our entire recreated outfit will deliver a similar look for only $122.84. Now if only you had a black-tie event to attend…

Happy Shopping!
