Anne Hathaway photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue (November, 2010)

At first glance, this Anne Hathaway November 2010 Vogue cover may look boring, but just wait to see what's inside: an explosion of glamour and diamonds worthy of Elizabeth Taylor! With labels like Van Cleef & Arpel, Cartier, Chopard, Boucheron, this editorial is enough to make a grown woman cry. But fear not: Sophie's Closet has some affordable alternatives that can achieve the same glamorous look.

Anne is wearing a Marchesa red suede strapless dress with Van Cleef & Arpels diamond and ruby earrings that probably cost a fortune. Just as glamorous are our vintage Christian Dior earrings that come with a matching brooch (hint: you can use the brooch as a hair pin).

In this group shot, Anne sparkles in an Isaac Mizrahi sequined strapless dress and Van Cleef & Arpels diamond necklace and bracelet. We love the glittery diamond bracelet over black opera gloves. Our Lisa Freede Swarovski wrap bracelet should do the trick! Pair it with little "huggie" earrings to complete the look.

In the most glamorous shot, Anne is wearing a Miu Miu embroidered top with Van Cleef & Arpels diamond drop earrings, a Cartier diamond-and-platinum necklace, a Chopard diamond ring and a Boucheron diamond, pink sapphire and ruby hair pin. The best thing about this shot is the tall chignon with the hair pin and we have just the right substitute pieces: Jennifer Behr's "Evelyn" comb with crystals, sequins and pearls or, for an even more affordable alternative, Ban.dō's crystal pin.

For more sparkles, we suggest Kenneth Jay Lane's drop earrings and a CC Skye's cocktail ring.

Now if we hunt down a crystal drop necklace we'll have the complete Anne Hathaway look.
