How many of us have dreamily watched the Oscars each year, knowing that we’ll never really get to dress like the stars? Well dream no more. Thanks to Rent the Runway, you can actually borrow designer dresses for a fraction of the price. Red carpet optional.
They have styles by over 160 top designers, perfect for everything from a bridesmaids’ luncheon to an important business meeting. For today’s post, however, I specifically wanted to look at dresses similar to those we saw on our favorite celebs Sunday evening.
Because who doesn’t have Oscars fashion on the brain?
Remember the gorgeous Alexander McQueen halter worn by Amanda Seyfried? For a $150 rental, you can don a similar style in this blush Badgley Mischka sequin draped gown.
What about the drop-waisted Dior Couture gown Jennifer Lawrence famously tripped over when receiving her Best Actress award?
Who can forget the gold sweetheart gown that was custom designed for Jessica Chastain by Giorgio Armani himself?
While mere mortals like you and me may not have access to custom designs by the world’s greatest fashion icons, we can rent this gold sequin Badgley Mischka gown for $125.
Charlize Theron rocked the peplum trend in a lovely winter white at this year’s Academy Awards.
You can rock a similar look with this Carmen Marc Valvo for a $185 rental.
Last, but certainly not least, Catherine Zeta Jones outshone celebs half her age in this gold beaded Zuhair Murad gown.
Better yet, create your account via this link to get a $20 credit after completing your first rental. With dress rentals starting at $40 (including RTR’s dry cleaning service) you can wear the perfect designer frock for less than the cost of a dress purchase at the mall.
