If you think the price you pay for your prom dress should reflect how brightly you shine that night, you’re dead wrong! You can sparkle like the stars on the red carpet without shelling out the big bucks for it. How you ask? Here’s a quick guide to getting the right celebrity prom dress for less in three easy steps.
Secret Tips to Getting Celebrity-Inspired Prom Dresses For Less
Do Your Homework
Find your favorite red carpet looks and choose the one that most similarly reflects your own body type. This is important because you may have certain curvatures (or not) that may not look as flattering on you as other styles would. Take into account your height, weight, bust and hips. e.g. Something Kim Kardashian would wear wouldn’t look the same on Gisele Bundchen. Catch my drift?
Most prom retailers like to offer incentives to their loyal fan base on Facebook and Twitter. Tap into your feed to find out about their flash sales and discounts. For super socialites that want their deals in order, create an “interest lists” to organize the stores you want to hear from during prom season.
If you’ve ever shopped online, you’ve seen the “promo code” box on the checkout page. You can crack this code to save additional dollars off on essentially any purchase. e.g. Grab a coupon for Light In the Box to save on the already discounted Taylor Swift inspired-dress featured in the photo above.
Now that you’re equipped with a broke-proof strategy to get your prom dress for less, we’d love to see your favorite celebrity red carpet looks. Please share them with us below!

Loafers and smoking slippers for women aren’t going anywhere for next season! Slip your feet into a pair of standout smoking slippers when you want a chic alternative to flip flops, ballet flats or sneakers. I just saw Jessica Alba rocking a fresh look with neon pink accents while shopping with her daughter in Beverly Hills last week – including a pair of smoking slippers that took her look to a whole new level. A must for your wardrobe!

All sisters like to share clothing! A pregnant Kim Kardashian was out and about, grabbing some frozen yogurt last week in Sherman Oaks, California wearing a familiar cream-colored ensemble. Kim was spotted wearing older sister Kourtney‘s Rachel Pally maxi dress, who also rocked the gown while pregnant last year with her second child, daughter Penelope! I think both Kim and Kourtney looked gorgeous in the Grecian gown – beautiful and comfortable to accommodate a growing baby bump!

The gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow attended her best friend and celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson’s new flagship studio opening last night in NEON. And I loved it. The Goop queen arrived on the black carpet practically barefaced with no accessories to speak of – letting her fab Victoria Beckham shift and Michael Kors color blocked sandals do all the talking.

The print of the moment’s moment is lasting longer than expected, don’t you think? Chevron - or herringbone – seems to be everywhere these days, from clothing to accessories to wallpaper to pillows! I still need to make the jump in the clothing department but after seeing my girl Kourtney Kardashian’s chevron maxi dress, it was all the convincing I needed.
Effortless and chic, Kourtney was spotted out and about in a blue and white chevron dress, rocking a fabulous braided hairstyle, Jimmy Choo sandals and an Hermes bag. You can steal her super cute look for less below (I’m leaning towards the halter option!).
