Emily Blunt has been a red carpet all-star ever since her days as Emily Charlton in The Devil Wears Prada, but this has been especially true over the past few months with her Oppenheimer press tour. She’s had hit after hit (despite a wardrobe mishap here and there) and her most recent ensemble at the Producers Guild Awards is no exception.

The 41-year-old actress opted for a stunning blue tea-length Oscar de la Renta gown with intricate detailing and cutwork, paired with glittering sliver heels that packed a bit of a surprise punch. Not because they had any hidden detail, but because it turns out the Betsey Johnson Viola Silver heels are currently on sale for just $60, down from $119. Just in time for peak wedding season, too.

It’s always a thrill when celebs wear clothing, shoes and accessories that are actually accessible for the rest of us plebeians, but even more so when those items come in under $100. Blunt could’ve opted for a high-end designer to match her Oscar de la Renta gown (which costs a whopping $13,990), but her affordable sparkly pumps look utterly perfect—and they’re inspiring us to rethink our go-to wedding guest shoes.

Betsey Johnson’s Viola Silver heels have a mesh front dotted with rhinestones and a dainty ankle strap (with a matching rhinestone buckle) to give your ankles and arches some added support. They’re a gorgeous option for any dressy event, and weddings in particular, as they pair well with a wide range of dress colors and styles. Plus, the bottoms are painted a darling pale blue shade for an added pop of color while you break it down on the dance floor.

That said, the 4.25-inch heel may be a bit too high for some party-goers. So we found three more lookalike styles that are just as glitzy and glamorous, if a bit more walkable.

Another Betsey Johnson style, this slingback heel has a more modest 2.25-inch heel and packs a ton of rhinestone shimmer onto the front of that pointed toe. It also features the same gorgeous blue sole underneath and comes in more colors than the Viola heels, including black, pale gold and Barbie pink.

This under-$100 beauty has a 3-inch heel and an adjustable slingback strap. It also comes up higher on the sides to give your arches some bonus support as you boogie. According to reviews, they’re surprisingly comfortable, too.

If kitten heels are more your vibe, you’d be hard pressed to find a more festive pair than this stunner from Nina. Much like Blunt’s silver pumps, they have a mesh upper with scattered rhinestones. And the covered heel is just under 2-inches high to give you a subtle boost without wreaking havoc on your feet.
