Get Julia Roberts' Eastern Eat, Pray, Love Looks Before The Movie Hits

When we learned that Julia Roberts would star in the movie adaption of the hugely popular Eat Pray Love – we were psyched. Not only is it a great book, but with Julia as star, we knew the film – and the clothes in it – would get A-List treatment. Stills from the movie just hit the web, and we’re loving her effortless, Eastern-inspired looks. And unlike most Hollywood costumes, the pieces are totally wearable for real life:

This is far and beyond our favorite look – the floppy hat, shirt dress and leather sandals (so Italian) make for the perfect tourist/weekend look.

You can thank Julia later for how big the straw hat trend is going to be. Our pick is this Forever 21 Straw Cloche Hat ($10.80), the price is amazing and black tie makes it even chicer.

You can never go wrong belting a shirt dress like this amazing Alloy Ella shirt dress ($29.90, down from $39.90). Even the Alloy model is styled with Eastern jewelry – its the perfect fit.

What is more Italy than leather Prada sandals? Get in the Eat Pray Love mood with these discounted Prada burnt brown leather ankle strap flat sandals ($396).

Julia looks stunning sipping red wine with this gold cowl neck sweater and gold hoop earings.

A Sarah Jessica Parker-favorite, this Halston Heritage Oversized Cowl Sweater ($275) nails the look. Chanel Julia this fall by wearing it to dinner parties, dates or work (with black pants and pearl studs).

How sexy and care-free does Julia look in this tie-dye wrap and classic aviators? If you’re ever at an outside market in Bali (or Baltimore, for that matter) this is the perfect look.

This Reincarnated tie-dye wrap in Nude/Beige ($145) by Sir Alistair Rai is perfection. Julia actually wears the line in real life, so you know she played a role in getting the Indian tunics and wraps on Eat Pray Love‘s set.

Throughout the film, Julie rocks the aviator style and we love it. You can’t go wrong with the classic Ray-Ban ‘Bubble Wrap’ Polarized Aviator sunglasses ($159).

We wish we could take a bike ride through the Indian country side, but we’ll settle for stealing Julia’s cool blue paisley look instead.

How pretty and hippie-esque is this Free People ‘Sweet Poland’ tunic ($98)? Pair it with skinny jeans or leggings for fall.
