The 10 Best Looks at the 2016 Oscars

Truth be told, we're often watching the Oscars, madly in love with the gowns and saying aloud "if only I had somewhere to wear a dress like that!"

And while you might not have a week of premieres lined up like the stars, there are definitely events in your life that sometimes call for a show-stopping gown. Black tie wedding? Check. Your boss's charity gala? Check. They won't come around that often, but when they do you'll want to be prepared.

Below, 5 of our favorite looks from the Oscars red carpet, and a quite affordable (considering the stars are wearing gowns that are at least 4 or 5 figures!) look for less. You might not want all of the flourish and embellishments of Cate Blanchett's aqua Armani Prive gown, but we've got a gorgeous alternative inspired by that springy hue.

Click through below to see how you can get the look for much, much less.
