Love her romantic meets rock-n-roll look? (We do too!) Here’s a photo gallery of 10 lookalikes you can wear to mimic her style.

Only the best-dressed stars were on the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars, and we know you want to steal their looks, but who? Jennifer Lawrence continued to follow the pink wedding gown trend in her Dior Haute couture dress, while many others like Amanda Seyfried and Sandra Bullock decided to adorn themselves in lace and beading with Alexander McQueen and Elie Saab gowns, respectively. Don’t forget the sequins on Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman’s gowns or how Charlize Theron rocked the peplum, which is one of our top 10 wedding dress trends this year. Wow, what a fashionable night to remember.
Hypothetically speaking, which actress’s gown would you wear at your wedding? Let us know in the poll below!
