In a sea of high-fashion designers—from Emma Stone in Roland Mouret to Nicole Kidman in Brandon Maxwell—at Sunday's Critics' Choice Awards, actress Bryce Dallas Howard stood out in a mustard-colored floor-length gown from Topshop. Instead of borrowing the dress from a designer or wearing something custom-made, like many of her peers, Howard reportedly purchased the dress from the British brand for $240.
It's not the first time Howard has opted to go off-the-rack for the red carpet. At the Golden Globes earlier this year, she wore a $4,800 Jenny Packham dress that she bought herself from Neiman Marcus, claiming fashion's size exclusivity drove the size-6 actress to go rogue.
"When you’re not 'sample' size, or when you don’t have a direct relationship with a designer, or if you don’t have a lot of notice, those types of size 6 dresses just aren’t that available that much," Howard told People. "I like having lots of options for a size six as opposed to maybe one option."
Many women seem to agree with Howard and her fashion choices — her yellow bedded maxi dress has already sold out at Nordstrom.
