Take Her Look [For Less]

Amanda Seyfried has been a fashion muse for many, often wearing enviable outfits on and off the red carpet. But as The Daily Mail reports, the actress was once a ‘brand muse’ for a skincare line, Shiseido’s Cle de Peau Beaute Tokyo.

Seyfried stepped back into this role once again on Oct. 9 when she attended the company’s launch event in Tokyo, Japan at the Palace Hotel Tokyo. Looking as stunning as ever, Seyfried kept her look simple and elegant with a white sheath dress by Antonio Berardi, says InStyle, which she paired alongside silver Bionda Castana lace-up pumps. She polished off her look with loose, side-swept waves and natural, dewy makeup.

Seyfried’s white and silver launch event look was breathtaking, but so were the prices on some of the pieces in her outfit. Take her pumps, for example. Her gorgeous metallic Bionda Canstana pumps — the Lana pumps — are available in a different color at Farfetch for a lofty $874.53. If these pumps are out of your price range, never fear — not only have we found the perfect pumps to replace Seyfried’s pricey pair, we’ve also found a dress to mimic her entire look, and all for under $200. Read on for the results!

First on our shopping list was a curve-hugging white dress, and we found the perfect alternative in the form of the Ponte Wrap Hem Bodycon Dress from Missguided. Featuring a split hemline reminiscent of Seyfried’s Antonio Berardi number, this dress will show off your curves while also maintaining a clean, crisp silhouette. Available for only $34, this dress is the perfect piece from which to build the rest of our look for less.

Finding pumps to rival Seyfried’s silver Bionda Castana heels was no easy task, but we finally landed on the Sheer the Wealth Silver Glitter Mesh Pumps from Lulu’s. Featuring a similar pointed-toe silhouette and toe-box cutouts, these heels will easily pass for Seyfried’s pricier pumps — but they’ll only set you back $34.

Completing the look is a simple bangle, and there’s no better bangle for the job than the Karat Slim Cuff Bracelet from BaubleBar. Done in a hematite tone, this bracelet will add some shine to your outfit without competing with your sparkly metallic heels, and it will do so for only $32.

Amanda Seyfried is certainly our style muse in this white Antonio Berardi dress and silver Bionda Castana heels, but while we envy her look, we definitely don’t envy its high price, costing upwards of $874.53. But because we believe that high fashion doesn’t have to come at a high price, we recreated her entire look for well under our $200 budget, coming it at an even $100. At a price like this, you have no reason not to go shopping for this look!

Take Her Look [For Less]

August went out with a bang — or should we say a ‘grand slam’ —with the last day of the month playing host to the 15th Annual USTA Foundation Opening Night Gala in New York City. And while the gala was for a good cause with proceeds benefitting the USTA Foundation, which serves to bring “tennis, education, and health curricula” to children and adults, the event was also filled with some great fashion.

Our favorite look came courtesy of Amanda Seyfried, who attended the event in what InStyle reports was a black and white scallop-hem dress by Red Valentino. She completed her gala-ready look with a floral pouch and black pointed-toe heels.

While Seyfried’s look is the object of our envy, it comes at a price that is not-so enviable. Her floral pouch alone, which The Daily Mail reports is by Givenchy, costs a lofty $450. But if you love her entire outfit, we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate her look for less. Read on for the results!

Finding a dress to mimic her Red Valentino number was quite the task, but we thought that the GUESS Colorblocked Fringe-Lace Bodycon Dress from Macy’s came pretty close. This dress not only invoked the scallop detail at the hemline of her dress, it also features a black and white colorblocking reminiscent of the Red Valentino frock. But this look is sure to cost much less, coming it at $94.40.

Next on our shopping list was a floral clutch to rival Seyfried’s Givenchy style, and we though the Steve Madeen Noelle Floral Clutch from DSW did just that. Done in an equally dainty floral, this clutch is given a bit of an edge with tonal studs embossed into the flap. And for only $34.95, you’ll have a style similar to the Givenchy clutch at a fraction of the cost.

Our look for less wouldn’t be complete without a classic pointed-toe pump, and the Nine West Rocha Platform Pump from DSW does the trick. These heels can be paired with outfits far beyond our look-alike ensemble, making their $59.95 price money well spent.

Amanda Seyfried’s U.S. Open Gala look cost at least $450, and that was only for her Givenchy floral pouch. But our recreated look will have you gala-ready for only $189.30. Now that you have the perfect outfit, all you need is a gala to wear it to!
