golodryga, the hottest oscar looks for less. We love the jaw-dropping dresses. But you do not need the budget of an a-list celebrity to get the hollywood look here. Here to talk about it, joe zee. Good to see you. There were a few duds this year. Very few. They really amped it up at the oscars. We should tell our viewers, lara spencer looked phenomenal. You were her stylist. She looked pretty good. She is not a tough one to dress. Tell us about her dress. She wore kaufman franco. We went with something with the embellishment and the metallic beading. And she did that neutral shade. It didn't take away from her. She's so easy to dress. She looked so beautiful. Let's talk about some of the other beauties on the red carpet. Kerry washington. A lot of people loved her dress. I love the dress. What I love about it was the embellishment. You don't have to do it head-to-toe to really make a statement. What she did was had an embroidered bodice. Her dress was seashells. But we wanted to do it with metallic sequence. That's an easy way to do the dress. Beautiful. How beautiful is that? I love the embellishment. And all these dresses are under $300. This is $178. I love that color. Something else I loved this year, the metallics. The bright golds and the silvers. It's really show-stopping in a way. It doesn't feel so las vegas anymore. Old hollywood in a way. It is old hollywood. Someone who did it really well was katherine zeta-jones. Tell us what you like about it. This is one of the dresses you wear, you walk into a room and immediately get noticed. And everyone noticed catherine. This dress probably cost thousands of dollars. For our viewers at home, you don't have to get discouraged. Not at all. Here is our alternative, for under $300. All of the dresses on the red carpet are always one-of-a-kind. They're not available. But if they are, they would be upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. And this one? 299. Aside from the gold and the silver, blue was a big hit. Including our own rin roberts. How good the robin roberts look at the oscars? And reese witherspoon. I love this dres what I love about it is the blue color. You don't have to wear black. You don't have to wear anything neutral. But you can wear a color that doesn't make it too bright. She just had a baby, too. Look at her. She looks phenomenal. For our viewers at home. Here is the alternat a lower price. This is from uniquely vintage. And I have to tell you, this dress is $88. Life should be a red carpet at $88. Is it comfortable? You look stunning. Very comfortable?
