From the Runway to a Housewife's Closet

Dress by Elie Saab, black mesh pumps by Christian Louboutin.
At a September 2010 event Blake Lively wore this gorgeous Elie Saab dress from her Autumn Winter 2010/2011 Ready to Wear line (dress number 53).

While an Elie Saab dress is typically custom made per client and costs in the thousands, the concept of this dress can be applied to an already created, form fitted dress with some tulle, a sewing machine, and a little bit of talent.

You may not be able to find a lace dress, but a form-fitted black dress will work just as well. Be sure to make it look like it was incorporated into the original dress by sewing black ribbon over the tool.

Keep it simple with little to no jewelry and solid pumps.
