I have been searching high and low for a wedding dress that I really liked, and the other night, watching the Golden Globes, Scarlett Johansen walked out in my dream dress. I swear, I heard the Hallelujah chorus go off in my head when I saw it! Now, how do I find a dress that looks just like this, in my plus size in my little tiny (under $500) budget? :::sigh::::

i thought she looked totally washed out in it, though

@Mrs. Meowerson: i kinda agree with you. her skin tone matches the dress to a T

Indeed… beautiful, but not for her.

Very beautiful. Maybe contact an ebay seller to see if they can recreate this type of dress

That is a very beautiful gown and you should be able to find a seamstress to make it for you; however, the overlay is what is going to cost you the most. The fabric used for the overlay is very expensive and also hard to work with, so if you can find some other fabric that is less expensive for the overlay, you might be able to fit it into your budget.

Her dress was made by Elie Saab, who happens to be my favorite wedding dress designer. His wedding dresses go for over $7K though 🙁

Dress would have looked better next to Ryan Reynolds.

@tranquility:I agree about the ebay recreation route. Also, looks like something the casablanca line would have, to me. See if you can find a used casablanca dress that is close enough to make you happy. Think about what it is about the dress that you like and focus on those aspects.

are you going for the general shape? the material? or the sparkles? any specific colours?

It’s a beautiful dress!
I don’t have any suggestions for you but it reminded me that I really enjoyed reading this blog post about golden globe inspired wedding stuff…

If it’s something you’d consider DHGate have a few sellers who make Elie Saab Dresses.
