When a women’s fashion magazine hosts a red carpet event, you can be certain of two things: that some very powerful and talented women will be in attendance and that they will be dressed to impress. And such was the case when Harper’s Bazaar UK held their Women of the Year Awards on Tuesday, Nov. 3 in London.
British icon honoree Kate Winslet stunned prior to the awards in what InStyle says is a black and white Roland Mouret asymmetrical sheath dress. Winslet paired her classic look with black pointed-toe pumps, some simple gold jewelry and a black clutch.
While Winslet’s look oozes a simple elegance, its price tag is anything but simple. Her Roland Mouret dress, the Beadle Stretch Crepe Sheath Dress, is available at Neiman Marcus for a lofty $2,295. If you love this look as much as we do, there’s still hope to make this look yours despite its high price — read on to see how we attempted to recreate her entire look for under $250.
Winslet’s Roland Mouret frock is certainly unique, so finding something to mimic the look was not easy, but we finally landed on the Vesper Sexy Pencil Dress with Bow Tie Waist from ASOS. While the dress doesn’t have similar cap sleeves, it does share its curve-hugging sheath silhouette, with white colorblocking on the same side as Winslet’s dress and in a diagonal pattern reminiscent of her dress. The other major difference — the price. This dress will only set you back $103.91.
Simple black pumps will take this classic look to the next level, and there’s no better shoe for the job than the Jessica Simpson Vivienne Pump from DSW. Done in a similar pointed-toe shape, these look-alike pumps will complete your look for only $69.95.
Completing our look for less is a black clutch, and not just any black clutch — the Sondra Roberts Mesh Ball Clutch from DSW. This embellished clutch upgrades the basic black evening bag, and it will upgrade your look for only $49.95.
Although Kate Winslet’s Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards look cost upwards of $2,295, we managed to recreate her entire look for only $223.81. Add your favorite gold jewelry, and you’ll have taken her look for your own.
