In between the dangling emerald earrings and silver-lined suits is hundreds pf thousands of dollars invested to make the stars look, well, expensive.

But what if I were to tell you you don’t need to be a multimillionaire to look so stylish? What if I told you, you didn’t even need $20? That’s right, you can put a downpayment on a house while looking like you just stepped off the red carpet.

Keep the change and use your saved money on your mortgage!

Some of the stars looks were controversial. Others were classy. Find the one that best suits your style and get out your green bills.
