Oscars Style in Real Life

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?
