For some of us, our insatiable Diva curiosities find us scrambling to get a peek at the gowns worn by celebrities during the awards season.
So, check this out. You can rent one for a night or even own a designer gown that was worn by a star on the red carpet.
Although those gorgeous frocks are usually rented by the stars and are extremely expensive, the designers often auction them off after they have been returned.
So if you’ve spied a dress you simply must have, like Taylor Swift’s 2009 Grammy Gown, then keep checking auction sites such as www.clothesoffourback.org, www.donatemydress.org or www.celebrity2nds.com. You may just be able to own that gown . . . albeit at a high price. The good news is that all of your costs go to charity.
But as a frugal Diva I must issue a word of caution. The auction prices are hefty and you may watch your favorite gown propel beyond your reach for ever more.
However, if the starting bid price of that coveted Vera Wang gown, which you would almost kill for, is off the charts, don’t lose heart. That dress can be yours for an evening in a price range more favorable to your pocketbook. Visit sites such as One Night Affair, Light in the Box, and My Celebrity Dress to find your favorite gown, stun your friends with your Diva fashion sense, and smile radiantly because you can still afford groceries the week after the party.
