Mail Bombs: Celebrity Looks for Less

Hey,
So I'm in Paris, eating WAY too many crepes and drinking Orangina! I caught a bit of Real Style for ya (stay tuned next week!), but we all know what Fridays are for...
...let's do it!
First, Kendall asks, "There's a recent picture of Beyoncé wearing a feminine men's cut tuxedo suit."
"I know those are IN this season. Where, oh, where can I find some? To make matters tricky, I need the pants in a tall length! But I guess I can do that research if you point your readers and me in the right direction???"
Beyonce's wearing a modern version of 'Le Smoking' a menswear inspired pantsuit created by Yves Saint Laurent. I wrote about the style in a tribute to YSL here.
To get a similar look, Adriana found these items:
1. Diane von Furstenberg Desi Jacket, $445. 2. Forever 21 Velvet Pinstripe Blazer, $27.80. 3. Diane von Furstenberg Cece Pant, $275. 4. L.A.M.B Classic Tuxedo Pant, $185.
Next Nekaria says, "I Love the Simmons Sisters, they're hot!"
"... I was wondering if you can help me find the shoes they're wearing in this picture."
It seems that the fly sisters are wearing the following styles:
1.Yves Saint Laurent Black Tribute Sandal, $760. 2. Gucci Babouska Studded Bootie, $995.
Quite a lot for some stilettos! If your money's more 'Pastry' than "Gucci", get similar looks with these lower priced options:
1. Report Signature Beatrix Platform Sandals, $108. 2. Colin Stuart Studded Bootie, $98.
Nicole from Indianapolis says, "Can you please tell me where I can find the swimsuit Rihanna wore to Barbados with Chris Brown?"
" Many cynics think it’s ugly because it’s too mis-matchy, but I think it really shows that rock-glam look she is always trying to achieve. PLEASE help me out!"
Adriana says, "My guess is she mixed-and-matched pieces from separate bikinis to achieve her look. Try the mix and match bikini options that American Apparel, Victoria's Secret, and Old Navy Offer."
Tap American Apparel, where you can buy the following items for a similar style:
1. Nylon Tricot Zebra Print Triangle Bikini, $28. 2. Nylon Tricot Flat Bikini Bottom, $25.
Leanne fell in love with Aubrey's TRL dress:
She says, "Can you tell me who made it? And where can I find something similar for cheaper?"
Aubrey is wearing this Marc Jacobs creation...
...you can buy it now for $460 at www.net-a-porter.com.
If you want a similar off the shoulder look, go with these:
1. Cynthia Steffe Boardwalk Dress, $137. 2. Tibi Twiga Square Neck Dress, $174. 3. Puella Off the Shoulder Mini Dress in Noir, $149.
Erica says, " I wanted to know if you could tell me where Ashanti found her belt."
" If not that one, could you show me an alternative?"
Get the look with the following:
1. Rose Embellished Belt , $29. 2. Versatile Patent Belt, $49.
That does it!
Just a few more days in Gay Paris before making it home in time for Labor Day! Monday is a holiday so I won't be updating, but be sure to log on on Tuesday for a few "Anniversary" surprises!!!
Smootches!

There's a better place where you can get customized belts. Choose your own belt and buckle and have it custom sized. www.elliotrhodes.com
