Have you seen the floor-sweeping red-carpet dress photos of some of the world’s most stylish celebrities at the 2012 Met Gala last week?! Our eyes were transfixed on many of our favorite leading ladies as they sashayed along the luxe carpet made worthy only for those within the high fashion elite society. And as we perused the many lovely long-legged dames in their Prada, Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Armani, Louis Vuitton, Erdem, etc, etc dresses, we couldn’t help but feel a significant fashion connection to many of these looks. After scanning all the celebrity dresses from Anna Wintour’s highly famed Met Gala, it was inevitable what was to come next. We instantaneously dipped into our Camille La Vie fashion closet and rounded up a few purely amazing dresses of our own that bear quite a resemblance to some of our red-carpet favorites. Check out our round-up of selected red-carpet looks and our fabulous Camille La Vie version for each. You’ll definitely look like a high fashion star without breaking the bank.
1. Emily Blunt
Emily Blunt really pulls off this chic, minimal and incredibly alluring Calvin Dress dress, while keeping her hair and makeup sleek with a dose of simplicity. She really doesn’t need much considering her genetically blessed traits and this cutout dress certainly amplifies all her divine assets! Snag Emily’s look here with this equally gorgeous jersey cutout dress and luxe rhinestone beading. It’s an ideal red-carpet style dress that will work for your many social occasions, including prom, cocktail parties and other fab-friendly events (SEE NEXT PHOTO).
2. Solange Knowles
Who can pass up this hot neon yellow number worn by the heavenly divine Solange Knowles? We’re really feeling her style savvy choice designed by Rachel Roy for this event, especially considering our undying love for peplum dresses. This fierce look coupled with her jaw-dropping, envy-worthy hairstyle makes for an all-out head-to-toe winner! And our course, this feature wouldn’t be complete without showcasing our AMAZING, spot-on version of Knowles’ dress. Check out our Camille La Vie satin mermaid dress with peplum accents (SEE NEXT PHOTO).
3. Paula Patton
We can’t stop admiring Paula Patton’s beauty let alone her sweet-hued lilac strapless dress designed by Vera Wang. Her sleek and classic chignon is the perfect choice to showcase her beautiful facial features and totally love her dose of the dazzle factor with the rhinestone drop earrings. This color works undoubtedly well for the spring/summer season and luckily we have an equally sensational version at Camille La Vie. Check out this Camille La Vie chiffon beaded illusion dress that’s quite reminiscent of Paula Patton’s red-carpet dress (SEE NEXT PHOTO).
4. Dianna Agron
Dianna Agron looks like an ethereal goddess in this breathtaking red-carpet gown with plunging neckline designed by Caroline Herrera. We can’t help but stare into her sultry eyes and retro-inspired locks befitting of a classic Old Hollywood starlet. But although her beauty may be one-of-a-kind, you can certainly score her dress style as Camille La Vie houses a beautiful red-carpet ready version made of luxurious chiffon and rhinestone in a plunging neckline that brings to mind all sorts of goddess-like thoughts.
