Style 911: “Help Me Tina Fey’s Red Dress From The ‘Saturday Night Live’ Premiere!”

Style 911: "Help Me Tina Fey's Red Dress From The 'Saturday Night Live' Premiere!"

HELP! I just watched Tina Fey’s ‘SNL’ episode that premiered a few weeks ago and I am obsessed with the red dress she is wearing in the opening monologue. The only links I could find with “Tina Fey” and “red dress” were pretty much only concerned with her recent nip slip and not her actual dress- ha! Help me out, please! – Katy

First of all, Katy, I would like to apologize for the delay in responding to your request. Damn Gmail and it’s weird sorting! Anyway, I wasn’t able to figure out who designed the dress Tina was wearing during her opening monologue oh so many weeks ago, but let’s face it, it was probably a high-end designer piece with a hefty price tag. The good news is that this particular silhouette is everywhere and there were so many similar options that I actually had to narrow it down to just seven — three with similar short and/or cap-sleeves, and four with slightly longer or three-quarter sleeves. But all in bright fire engine red. Check ‘em out below! Keep reading »

Style 911: “Find Me A Cheaper Version Of Kat Dennings’ Look!”

“Hey y’all, Looking for this dress or a way cheaper version of this look Kat Dennings wore to the ‘Thor’ premiere. The dress, the lips, the nails, the shoes… everything! Can you help?” — Ashley

Ashley, I could not agree with you more. Kat Dennings is stunning in this Naeem Khan cocktail dress. The neck-to-knee burgundy embroidery accentuates her every curve, and Kat’s choice to pair this dress with simple eye makeup, matching lipstick, nude pumps, and glittery purse makes for an alluring combination. If I could find this dress for less, I would be wearing it right now. Unfortunately, I’m gonna guestimate that this Naeem Khan cocktail dress will sell for over $1,000 once it’s available. The good news is, you can recreate this look by substituting the red dress for some of these affordable options…

Winona’s been craving a style makeover. She wants to change up her wardrobe and add some spiiiiice with some bombshell-style fitted dresses that really accentuate her va-va-voom curves.

Introducing The Minimum Wage Dress

minimum wage dress

My wallet thanks you, SheLikes.com. The British shopping website has created the MWD (Minimum Wage Dress) for all of those whose salaries are scraping the bottom of the barrel. The cut-out mini-shift goes for £3.68, the hourly minimum wage for teens in Britain. For us Americans, that totals about $5.68 – or a splurge at Forever 21. And while we agree with Refinery 29 that this minuscule price for working British teens might mean lower wages for working non-British teens, the company denies any sketchy business in production: “We fully support British manufacturing and are dedicated to working with UK-based suppliers, despite being able to source cheaper production rates overseas.” Still, the MWD is a hit already. Two of the four colors are already out of stock on the website. What else can you expect for a country that regards pricy TopShop as a bargain? [Refinery 29]
