Greetings divas,

Bethany was wondering who designed Jada Pinkett-Smith's dress she wore to the LA premiere of "The Secret Life of Bees".

Well Bethany I had a feeling it was from one of the Fall '08 lines but I was unsure if it was Elie Saab, or Marchesa, or any one of the designers known for their beautifully designed dresses. But I finally found the dress on in the fashion show archives and the dress is by none other than..........................

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2008 Ready to Wear

I should have known. The silhouette is tres' Oscar. Think Sarah Jessica Parker, who just happens to be a fan of the designer.

Well Bethany, if Oscar is attainable for you in these economic times....just, great (I'm a hater). But if, like me and more than half of America, your budget is wearing a corset around it, let's check out these alternatives below:

Carmen Marc Valvo Silk Ruched Lace
Cocktail Dress

Cynthia Rowley Silk Brocade Strapless Dress

Moschino Jeans Brocade Dress
