Contrary to popular belief, stars don't always spend an arm and a leg on their attire. Exhibit A: Eva Longoria at the Imagine Cup 2011 competition in NYC on Wednesday night.

The 36-year-old actress, who presented the People's Choice Award at the Microsoft-sponsored event, stepped out in a short, rusty orange frock by ASOS and paired the number with matching Brian Atwood pumps. The "egg-shape shift dress," as the site calls it, retails only for $86.20 but Us Weekly spotted it on sale for just $34.48!

The budget-friendly fashion find is also available in cobalt blue and jet black and is made from a polyester/vicsose/elastane blend. (Get it here!)

Longoria isn't the only star who's rocked moderately priced apparel -- Duchess Kate is a regular at Zara, Emmy Rossum has been known to rock pieces from Express, and Brittany Snow has also shown up in fashions by ASOS.
