Watching the Oscars Red Carpet can be devilishly fun. And while you might not have an excuse to wear a designer ball gown that often, but we’ll bet you wear fitness clothes all the time. We took some inspiration from our favorite starlets to show you how to look Oscar-worthy while you’re working out.
Who can forget Hilary Swank’s famously backless Guy Laroche gown from 2004? Show off your lats in Under Armour’s Back-Off Tank in Thai Teal – and if you’re looking to get the full Million Dollar Baby effect, try wearing it to your next boxing class ($69.99, underarmour.com).
In 2001, Julia Roberts took home the Best Actress Oscar for her leading role in Erin Brockovich, and her black-and-white Valentino gown has since reached iconic status. To get the look, fitness-style, try Athleta’s Tux Chatturanga Leggings ($79.00, athleta.com).
Halle Berry won for Monster’s Ball in 2002 in an unforgettable burgundy Elie Saab gown. If you’re inspired by the rich wine color or the mesh bodice, try Alo’s Path ¾ Sleeve Top in Garnet. It’s the perfect light cover-up to wear during a winter yoga class! ($62.00, aloyoga.com). Koral Activewear Lustrous Legging in Ruby ($92.00).
Lupita N’yongo topped last year’s “Best Dressed” lists when she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in a gorgeous powder blue Prada dress. If you love the gown’s light blue color, banded waist, and angular neckline, try Zella’s “Glisten” Seamless Tank in Ice Blue ($32.00, Zella).
Michelle Williams’ tangerine gown from 2006 is an all-time hit — that color! It’s hard to find anywhere, but we found a match in Lululemon’s Run: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Scoop in Heathered Bananarama. The omega detail on the front will get you some of Michelle’s awesome silouhette, too! ($59.00, lululemon.com).
Renee Zelleweger pulled off a canary-yellow Jean Desses gown in 2001 when she was nominated for her role in Bridget Jones’ Diary. You’ll get that same sunny color and sweetheart neckline in Lole Women’s Central Tank Top in Solar Power ($70.00, lolewomen.com).
Keria Knightley wowed us in Vera Wang in 2006. For that luxurious deep red color, go for Koral Activewear’s Lustrous Legging in Ruby ($92.00, carbon38.com).
Nicole Kidman turned heads in 1997 in this embroidered John Galliano gown. If you’re looking for something chartreuse with some intricate neckline detail, try MPG’s Zen top in Chartreuse ($52.00, mpgsport.cmo).
