Forget the Oscars, Hollywood's truly most fashionable night is officially the Costume Institute Gala. I can only say Holy amazing red carpet Batman!!! I've never seen so many incredible dresses on so many insanely stylish women all in one place. Doesn't hurt that the inspiration was American style through the ages. I think all the ladies seemed to conquer it. Keep reading for some of my favorites. I don't think there's one that I can say did this year's MET Ball any wrong. It's unbelievable!

Desperately Seeking: Rachel Bilson & Drew Barrymore Edition...

By Roberta Correia · August 13, 2009

Last night I found myself saying to a very wise friend "why can't I dress like Rachel Bilson's dressed in this picture?" (the one above, I hope that's inferred)...

To which I received a very well deserved "are you kidding me? don't be ridiculous, that's the easiest outfit ever," and of course my friend was absolutely correct, as she tends to be on most occassions. While doing my usual internet shopping and cruising for looks to post, I came across what can only be Rachel's exact Gingham shirt at ...shock me shock me, The Gap...pause for reaction.

Gap Gingham shirt added to cart I started thinking "I want more, I need more celebrity looks from stores that I can actually afford to shop in"... enter Drew Barrymore on the set of Long Distance something or other... wearing a pair of menswear inspired trousers that were already filed under "fall must have." And look at that, Ms. Barrymore's pants are identical to a pair of trousers that were actually already in my Urban Outfitters cart...

So there you have it kids, celebrities are just like us... note to self, wear gingham shirt with cut off jean shorts and pants with striped boatneck shirt... please try this at home...

1. Gap Gingham Shirt. $49.50. Available at gap.com

2. Silence & Noise Slouch Trouser. $58. Available at urbanoutfitters.com
