Any red carpet standout will tell you that to steal the spotlight, it's all about the dress.
But with designer dresses going for hundreds and even thousand of dollars, what's a girl on budget to do?
At Manhattan's M at Beekman, Us Weekly's Fashion Editor Suzanne Marchese says you can look red carpet ready with amazing dresses by Maggy London, which are great for every body type at a fraction of the price.
Jordin Sparks may have splurged when she wore a stunning Catherine Malandrino dress with a $475 price tag, but Maggy London's similar dress is a steal at $78.
That's a savings of almost $400!
Cameron Diaz's Chanel mini might break the bank at $2,100, but a black and white number is a bargain at $109 – a difference of almost $2,000!
"American Idol" Kelly Clarkson can afford a $3,300 Monique Lhuillier look, but Maggy London's is only $128 – a savings of $3,172!
Versatile dresses are great, and can save you money, too. Tie a bow in the front or back or add a broach, and you can wear it during the day and in the night.
Save thousands of dollars? Music to your ears – and wallets, too!
