Frieda Pinto in Vintage Valentino

Frieda Pinto in Vintage Valentino dressFrieda Pinto certainly looked minimal chic in a vintage Valentino red strapless floor sweeping dress with ruffled hem at the Green Carpet Challenge.  We at The Vintage Fashionistas thought the dress certainly was chic, but the look as a whole was a little too minimal for our taste.  Frieda needed some jewelry, like statement earrings, or a bold necklace to add some pizzaz and sparkle to the red carpet look.

We do think it was very appropriate that Ms. Pinto chose vintage for The Green Carpet Challenge, which is an initiative by Livia Firth and British journalist Lucy Siegle which pairs glamour and ethics to increase the awareness of sustainable style at the world’s most high profile red carpet events.

Compare her look to our selection of Vintage Dresses which you can get for a fraction of the price.  And if you love the designer you can also check out all of our Vintage Valentino

Penelope Cruz in Vintage Versace

We did love the vintage Versace dress Penelope Cruz wore at the Venuto Al Mondo film premiere, we just didn’t like the way she wore it.  First off, the shoes are the wrong height for the length of the dress.  Penelope should have foregone the platform, and stuck with a modest heel so the dress gracefully and elegantly skimmed the ground, instead of looking like her vintage dress was a few inches too short.  Secondly, her hair should have been tied up in a sophisticated and simple updo to match the sculptural pleats in the vintage Versace dress.

The vintage Versace dress itself is fabulous.  We love the wide band across the top, the diagonal pleats down the entire length of the dress, and the sexy wrap style that opens towards them hem.  But we don’t think Penelope wears it well.  What do you think?

Kim Kardashian in Mom’s Vintage Valentino Gown

Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian in Vintage Valentino Dress

Kim Kardashian stepped out in her mother, Chris Jenner’s vintage Valentino dress.  Here’s what her mother had to say about it:

“I bought this dress back in 1984, from the same collection as Julia Robert’s vintage Valentino gown, which she wore when she won her Oscar back 2001. I think it’s so important to save these classic gowns. They are timeless and I love to share them with my daughters! Kim borrowed it for her trip to the White House in 2012. She looked so stunning!”  To see more pics, click here.

 

Celebrity Style: Jessica Chastain in Vintage YSL

Another vintage Yves Saint Laurent dress makes a red carpet appearance, this time on Jessica Chastain at the premiere of Madagascar 3.

Jessica Chastain in Vintage YSLWhat do you think?  Love it or hate it?  Our thoughts are that while we love YSL and we love it when celebrities chose to wear vintage at high profile events, we didn’t love this dress on this actress at this event.  Here’s why.  Jessica Chastain would have looked better in a colorful dress.  Or, she could have still worn this classic vintage Yves Saint Laurent dress and added some excitement with bright accessories.

Black dresses don’t photograph well, so I am sure in person, this vintage YSL dress has some stunning details, but in pictures it just looks like a run of the mill boring strapless black dress.  She’s at a premier, of course she is going to be photographed!  Jessica should have thought of that, or at least her stylist should have!

Celebrities in Vintage: Emilia Fox in 1957 Christian Dior

Emilia Fox looks fantastic in a 1957 Christian Dior dress.  Although this dress screams 1950s, it looks very modern on Ms. Fox when paired with the green clutch and shoes.  A very fresh color combination.  The are many style elements of this dress that tell us it is from the 1950s.  The wide scoop neckline, and wide empire waist band were very fashionable during the 1950s.  The bracelet length sleeves, which were styled to showcase a fabulous bracelet, and thus their name sake. The tea length full skirt (which of course would have been worn with a tulle crinoline in the 1950s) is probably the most signature of the 1950s styles.  And of course, sherbert colors like this peachy coral, were the color trend of the 1960s.

But when worn with a modern green clutch, and green platform shoes, this 1950s dress becomes very fresh and contemporary.

Celebrities in Vintage: Anna Friel in vintage Jean Desses

Anna Freil in vintage Jean Desses  Really, that dress is vintage?  Isn’t it amazing how modern Anna Freil looks in this dress?  If no one had told me, I would never have guessed it was from 1958.  The peacock blue color is so fresh, and the architectural neckline, so contemporary.  I guess this just shows how trends all come back around.  This vintage Jean Desses dress from 1958 was just as stylish, and on trend over 50 years ago, as it is today!
