Dress for Less: Country Strong Movie Dresses

I saw Country Strong this past weekend.  I thought it was a cute, entertaining movie.  no award winning, Oscar nominated movie, but something I enjoyed watching!  A chick-flick if you will.  I also thought some of the dresses worn by Gweneth Paltrow (who played Kelly Cantar) and Leighton Meester (who played Chiles Stanton) were very cute and decided to provide similar looks you can get!

First off is Leighton's white eyelet ruffle dress we first see her in:

You can get this similar white, eyelet dress from Laundry by Shelli Segal - here.

At the end of the movie - I loved the dress that Chiles Stanton wore when she walked into a bar (and that's all I'm going to say so I don't give anything away) .  I can't find a photo or a clip of her in this dress - so you'll just have to go see the movie, but it's a blue summer dress with small floral print.  Similar option via Shopbop:

Kelly's (played by Gweneth Paltrow) last concert has 3 wardrobe changes and they were all fabulous dresses.   She started in a pretty red dress, with sequin embellishments and cowboy boots.  I think I read somewhere (but now can't find it, of course) that this dress was specifically created for this movie/character/scene. 
Similar Dress options:

 Similar in neckline, dress by Nanette Lepore
Little embellishment around the neck and similar sleeves by INC @ Macy's;

Then she wore a great black mini dress with gold stud embellishments (kinda reminded me of a skirt I got from Kohl's awhile ago).

If you are looking for something similar, you can either find a basic black dress with v-neck and cap sleeves, and embellish it your self, or this T. Tandon dress is similar!

The finale outfit was a long gold sequin dress with feather details at the bottom.  Sounds like a whole lot going on, but she made it work:

You can get a de-feathered, similar gold sequin dress with a slit here.
