Raise your hand if you have ever drooled over a celebrity look and wondered how you could get that style with your own pocketbook. Here, you’ll find seven different star styles, ranging from casual to superglam, each accompanied by pictures of the pieces that make up the look — but for a much smaller bite of your paycheck! Are any of these star styles at real woman prices for you? Check it out …

If you are wondering how on earth did Aisha get lucky enough to have legs that go on forever, we did too! But if you take a closer look, you’ll see two elements of her style that help what nature gave her along: a dress with lines and length that is universally flattering for most figures and teetering heels that stretch any set of legs by a mile. We searched a few online stores and found some affordable alternatives:

 

This electric blue “Zingy” dress is just $27.80 from greatglam.com.

Add these sparklers by Steve Madden and stir: “Parfait” in blush suede from Zappos.com, $135.

What a clever idea on Chrissy Teigen: to add a black tuxedo-style jacket with feminine details like the sheer sleeves to a va-voom red gown. It’s just the perfect balance of masculine and feminine, meeting to make an outrageously hot look. We shopped this look to come up with an option that takes far less toll on your bank account:

For the tuxedo jacket, you can always save a bundle by going vintage, like this sweet ’80s structure tuxedo jacket from etsy.com, $37.

Pair the tux jacket with this red-hot ruched number from Sears, $80.

Look just as sassy as Leah Weller without paying an arm and a leg. What works about this look is the tough, boyish bomber jacket in contrast to the supertight mini. You’ll have to supply the attitude.

This bomber from J.C Penney looks just a tough, but for pennies on the dollar: jcpenney.com, $60.

This black Prana Sugar mini skirt isn’t just a bargain; it has the added advantage of having built-in shorts, so you can really be saucy: zappos.com, $50.

While it’s hard to carry off a Gaga look to the fullest, you can certainly be inspired by elements of her style, such as the 1920s cloche and lame look. Take this silent screen star style to add as an element of your own clubbing outfit. It’s guaranteed that you can find this look for much less than Gaga’s attire. And when it comes to gold lame, you’ll find your best options in the vintage online stores.

This actual 1920s gold lame cloch-style hat has enough drama to impress even Lady G. Careful, she may want to borrow it: bonnies-treasure.com, $58.

A real 1980s gold lame blouse is just one of many you’ll find in a search for vintage gold lame blouses online to complete the look: etsy.com, $20.

Nothing says movie star like this absolutely elegant sheer lace overlay gown worn by Massiel Taveras. While a dress like this must have cost thousands, or even tens of thousands, you can find a similar style without the give-your-man-a=heart-attack pricetag. To look just as expensive, search for a similar fabric on a dress with simple, classic lines.

This gorgeous grey evening gown shows a little more skin while still looking very glam starlet: sungboutiquela.com,$198.

Somehow Morena Baccarin manages to look hot and classy at the same time. The key to this sweet-meets-siren look is the contrast of the drapey silk top with very librarian-ish tweed skirt, set off by low taupe pumps. You can get this style, girl, for oh-so-much less.

Start with a floral Thai silk blouse from ecrater.com, $62.

Then add a grey tweed pencil skirt that hugs your curves in all the right places: nordstrom.com, $84.

The final ingredient in this hot libriarian recipe is a pair of Adi Designs “Yell” low-heeled, round-toe taupe pumps: overstock.com, $35.

Tolula Adeyemi manages to carry off the leather pants look at a red-carpet event while looking completely comfortable and gorgeous. Again, the combination of tough and sweet is counterplayed with the black leather pants and sheer ivory blouse. You can find a cheaper version of this and still look just as gorgeous.

Start with a sheer Daniel Rainn vintage chiffon ivory blouse: bluefly.com, $55.
