Get Queen Latifah’s Look for Less
How to steal the Oscar nominee’s regal style.
The first lady of hip-hop looks stunning with some subtle sparkle at the launch of her new fragrance, Queen.
Follow Queen Latifah’s lead and slip into a classic silhouette — her $498 Lafayette 148 dress has a structured cut that is ultra figure-flattering. Add this timeless style to your wardrobe with this similar option from Torrid for only $64.
These pave hoops add a little pizzazz to any outfit. The actress adorns her ears with a pair from Roberto Coin for $2,360, but you can score these amazing look-alikes from Nadri for $35.
A spiky cuff adds just the right amount of edge to this refined, ladylike look. If you like Latifah’s from Sequin, but hate the $300 price tag; you’ll love our option from Marciano — it’s only $68.
The CoverGirl cosmetics spokeswoman pairs a black suede belt and heels with this tweed dress for an elegant mix of textures. Her belt comes with the Lafayette 148 dress, but this option from Lauren Ralph Lauren will have the same effect and at $29.99, it’s affordable!
Black opaque tights keep the Ice Age star warm, and they lend a more sophisticated air to this look than bare legs. The actress adores tights from Wolford, but at $70 a pair they’re a bit pricey. These $12.50 tights from Hue are a more wallet-friendly choice.
Coupled with the black tights, the sleek $325 black suede pumps Queen Latifah selected from Stuart Weitzman are leg-lengthening and let the dress take center stage. Follow her lead with this great pair from Steve Madden — the $79.95 price tag will keep you stepping lively.
The right perfume is the perfect finishing touch for any outfit, and now that the actress and singer has created her own, the choice is easy! Pick up a bottle of Queen by Queen Latifah for only $49 (boscovs.com). The scent is a romantic combination of rose, jasmine and vanilla.
