Recessionistas on the Red Carpet: Reasonable Fashions

Pictured: Natalie Portman on the Red Carpet in H&M

Actress Natalie Portman looked beautiful this week at a Vanity Fair Oscar party in a $50.00 US White dress from H&M’s upcoming Conscious Collection. The dress is made of 100% recycled polyester.  H&M must have given the dress to Natalie for the occasion since the H&M  Conscious Collection is not due in stores until April 14th.

Natalie has worn H&M before on the red carpet (the Lanvin collection), showing that fashion doesn’t have to be expensive.   At this week’s Costume Designer’s Guild Awards (CDGA) I spotted some great inexpensive fashion finds on and off the red carpet. Check out PR Maven Alexandra Lippin below in her $45.00 find.   She looked amazing at the CDGA gala.  Her green dress was full length, although you can’t see it in the picture. The designer is unknown.

Remember, you can look great without spending big.  And on the opposite end of the fashion spectrum, every awards season we see Red Carpet gowns that cost a fortune and are just plain fugly.
