Celebrity holiday looks for less

It's time to deck the halls — and get decked out! If you want to look like your favorite Hollywood star this holiday season, People StyleWatch shares celeb-inspired looks for less:


Gabrielle Union
This dress features a bustier top and a lovely tulle on the bottom with gold underlay-for a dressier feel. The bustier adds a touch of glam to holiday fare, making it both sweet and sophisticated.

Charlize Theron
Peplum is a huge trend right now. This dress is figure-flattering with its sweetheart neckline and form fit, creating a nice hourglass. And red is great pop of color for the holidays.

Blake Lively
Nothing makes a statement quite like a sequined dress. Festive and fun, it's the perfect party dress and gold really makes a statement. The key is to look for a good fit and weave on the sequins, and make sure you select a flattering length – whether at the knee or just above.

The black dress (the first one), is actually quite unflattering. The skirt is inches away from the bust, rather than being at the natural waist like Gabrielle's, so it makes this woman's torso look abnormally short. Sometimes, it's best to find a flattering dress rather than trying to find one that somehow resembles a celebrity's just for the heck of it (the only similarity being that they are both black and consist of bustier tops).
