Vanessa Williams: Look for Less

Vanessa Williams is one of those celebs we love for multiple reasons—from her ability to rise above what could have been the career kiss of death (that Miss America mess from waaaay back) to her ability to be absolutely, wickedly hilarious as Wilhelmina on Ugly Betty. She’s also regally gorgeous, a fact that is evident in this elegant yet still kinda fun ensemble. While we loved the batwing silk tunic she’s got going on here, we didn’t find an exact match, so we went instead for a slightly more casual but still head-turning outfit. Our pieces, for less:
