In honor of the stars and stripes, we’re looking at some of our favorite celebrity moms’ red, white, and blue outfits.
Okay, so the colors are only really patriotic when you put them all together and light a couple of sparklers, but we’re looking for something a little more fashion forward than Great Aunt Judy’s sparkly 4th of July tee shirt. These famous mamas look great – and there isn’t a single pair of mom jeans in sight!
Check out some of our favorite patriotically colored get-ups that were worn by modern celeb moms in 2012 (plus how to steal the look without breaking the bank!)
Reese rocked this red Zac Posen gown at this year’s Golden Globes. She is able to look like a vixen while showing a Mommy-appropriate amount of skin.
Get this classy look for less with this $79.20 gown from Dressbarn. It’s dressy enough for either bridesmaid or a soiree invitee. Bonus deal: Zac Posen has developed a clothing line for Target, offering other designer styles at super-affordable prices!
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Golden Globe’s gown was certainly daring, but she pulls it off! Her blue and white Monique Lhuillier gown turns funky tie-dye into classy and chic. We love that her dress is so full of interesting shapes and designs.
Turn Sarah’s look into an everyday staple with a tye-dyed maxi dress (they’re all the rage right now), like this piece, which is featured on TheFirstLadyBoutique.net for $60.
The former Lynette Scavo isn’t looking very desperate in this tight, red dress, which she wore to the Desperate Housewives finale party. Felicity Huffman looks red hot!
Make this your splurge! Amidress.com is currently selling a rival red dress for $129.60 (half off its regular price!). The full sleeves are a nice touch that allows the piece to be worn even as the seasons turn and the temperatures get cooler.
Jessica Alba looked adorable in this Tory Burch frock at the 2012 Plush Event, or LA’s Premier Luxury Baby And Toddler Show. Her getup can be purchased at Sake 5th Avenue, but it’ll set you back $115.
Get the look for less with this adorably dotted dress from lulus.com. This dress is a fraction of the price of Jessica’s frock at only $32, and it can be worn with or without straps for two different looks!
Katie Holmes wore a pair of seriously red pants designed by Isabel Marant to The Today Show for a fashion statement that’s bold but definitely working! Her legs are hot hot hot!
Make it bright this fall with a pair of red pants by Zara, which are currently on sale online for $59.99 (yes, they’re a splurge, but pants last forever and you won’t regret adding some pop to your wardrobe!).
Kelly Ripa’s dressed like a darling (or a bluebell) for the 2012 TV Land Awards! We love her in this cobalt blue silk-gazar dress from Jason Wu’s spring line.
This belted blue dress from magicweddingdress.com mimics Ripa’s style for a fraction of the designer price. Alternatively, use any fancy solid blue dress and add a thin black belt to break up the block of color.
