The Look For Less: Jennifer Lopez Stunning in Valentino at 2015 Tony Awards

Let’s face it. Jennifer Lopez would look fabulous in a brown paper bag. But take a look at her stunning, old world glamour in this strapless, embellished, navy Valentino.

Lopez is typically well-known for her sexy attire. But when she stepped onto the red carpet for the Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall last week, she was more glam than sexpot.

Valentino seems to be one of Lopez’s favorite designers, frequently outfitting her for Red Carpet events and premieres. While a Valentino is probably a budget buster, check out these gorgeous gowns at a much more affordable price.

This Ralph Lauren is all class— perfect for a summer wedding or charity event. It offers a subtle glamour in a style that will look great on just about anyone. Don’t find navy flattering? Ralph offers eight other colors for you to choose from!

Here’s a similar style, Ralph Lauren. This one is about half the cost, on sale, and offers three color choices.

This gown by ModCloth is touted as a receiving line dress, but would also work for a summer evening event. Bonus- sequins make it sparkle, just like J-Lo’s!

Navy is one of those colors that seems to work on just about anyone. And, like black, is a bit of a miracle worker on figure flaws. Here are a few more casual options. This belted sheath covers enough skin to make it work-wearable. Throw a pair of cute heels into your bag and wear it right into the evening. It’ll look great on a dinner date!

Lord and Taylor - Navy Belted Dress

This “wrap” (it’s labeled as a wrap dress, but the description reads that it “pulls on,” indicating it is probably a faux wrap… just a friendly FYI) dress is also work-wearable and would look fab for Sunday brunch, too.

TJ Maxx - navy wrap dress

Play with the length, play with your hair, even play with the color! By adding an element or two of Jenny’s “look,” you’re bound to feel like a star when you step out in style!

Happy Shopping!
