Why Buy The Cow? (Or The Dress): Luxury Rentals At Your Service

It would be so lovely to be a gorgeous actress getting ready for the Oscars with famous designers begging you to wear their couture gown or million dollar jewels on the big night – only to have you nonchalantly rattle off their name on the red carpet when prompted by Ryan Seacrest – or in Bulgari's case, have your name completely forgotten (nice work, Cameron Diaz). But alas, us mortals don't have that job perk. But wait! There's hope yet! New luxury rental services are popping up left and right, renting out everything from designer gowns to chic evening clutches. And for an ensemble that will only get a couple hours' wear, it seems to be worth the fee.

Wardrobe is a luxury rental salon based in New York and LA that rents out couture gowns, ready to wear ensembles, designer handbags, and high-end shoes. For a fraction of the retail price, you can knock 'em dead in a vintage Dior, or contemporary Galliano.

For a killer clutch, turn to Bag Borrow or Steal where you can become a member and rent the latest handbag for as long as you like.

No evening attire is complete without some fabulous bling. Who cares if it's not yours? Remember, even the stars don't own their red carpet sparklers. Take your pick from the amazing assortment of rings, bracelets, earrings, bracelets, watches, and sunglasses at BlingYourself.
