Do you ever wish you could wear the stunning red carpet looks you saw at the Academy Awards Sunday?

Those A-list Hollywood glamour goddesses who had onlookers buzzing about their style are worth big bucks – but you can look as good as they did, and for a fraction of the cost!

Tracey Lomrantz, contributing style editor for Glamour magazine, appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to show you gowns similar to those worn by the hottest actresses on the Oscars red carpet –  Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams and Viola Davis.

And what’s more, there was affordable jewelry to complement the looks.

As a bonus, we’ve also included an affordable nod to the dress “GMA” co-anchor Robin Roberts wore at the Oscars!

The Looks

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

The sultry actress’ black velvet gown – and the right leg it displayed through the thigh-high slit – became one of the most buzzed-about topics of the Academy Awards. The actress’s dress was daring strapless number with a bustle and asymmetrical bodice that resembled tulip petals.

A similar look is available from David’s Bridal for $129.

Jolie wore Neil Lane jewelry, but you can get earring at Claire’s for $9.

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton

The Best Actress nominee’s ethereal red dress became a universal hit, thanks to the bold color and feminine silhouette. The dress incorporated one of spring’s biggest trends – peplum – which can be surprisingly flattering on the hips.

A similar look from Unique Vintage has a similar cut and pleats. The Unique Vintage dress retails for $88.

Williams wore 30 carats of diamonds around her neck, and a bow pin. Our version is finished with a $95 brooch and $75 necklace, both from RJ Graziano.

Viola Davis in Vera Wang

The Best Actress nominee was best-dressed in her emerald green strapless dress.

You can achieve a similar look with this dress from BCBG, for $358.  This dress is only available on the website, BCBG.com, not yet in stores.

Robin Roberts in Mark Bouwer

The “GMA” co-anchor was a trending topic on Twitter throughout Oscar night, and more than 13,000 people “liked” her white dress on Facebook.

Fans can achieve a similar look with this dress from Lauren by Ralph Lauren. The dress, which retails for $180, shares many similarities with Roberts’ gown, but the neck and ruching will flatter nearly every body type.

This look is finished with a buckle bracelet, stretch bracelet and ring, all $65 each from RJ Graziano, and $55 earrings, also from RJ Graziano.
