Take Her Look [For Less]+

Something as a simple as a black dress can look just as stunning as the fanciest couture gown, and Angelina Jolie showed us how it’s done when she walked the red carpet of the Kung Fu Panda premiere in Los Angeles on Jan. 16.

Taking to the red carpet with five of her six children, Jolie turned heads in what InStyle says is a black Saint Laurent shift dress with cap sleeves, which she paired with minimal jewelry and black pointed-toe pumps.

If this is the little black dress that you’re wardrobe has been missing, you may want to hold off on purchasing the frock until you learn its price. Jolie’s Saint Laurent tube dress is available from YSL for a lofty $1,490. But before you think that all hope’s lost in owning your dream LBD, we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate her entire look for under $200. Read on for the results!

Black dresses are always in high demand, so finding the perfect shift dress for our recreated look was a cinch. The Have a Good One Black Shift Dress from Lulu’s not only mimics the silhouette of Jolie’s Saint Laurent number, it also comes with an added bonus: slit pockets at the hip! What’s more is that this dress will give you Jolie’s exact look for only $59.
