With the 2015 Golden Globes now a memory and the Oscars and BAFTAs just around the corner, Hollywood’s hallowed award season is in full swing! And while other fashion-lovers may be looking to the red carpet for the latest trends and freshest looks, to me award season is the perfect time to revisit all the glamour of the past. In such a trend-driven world, there’s nothing I like more than referencing the past- and wearing a vintage look can command far more attention than wearing any temporal trend.
Zuhair Murad black ball gown / Lanvin brown shoes / 1920s purse / Vintage crystal bracelet / Vintage gold jewelry / Chesca fur shawl / Burberry perfume fragrance / OPI nail polish
Although Zuhair Murad may be a popular modern designer, his black gown seen here is perfect for a ’40s-inspired outfit thanks to its sleek and glamourous design. A faux-fur shawl automatically evokes Old Hollywood and is very event-appropriate; the Oscars are, of course, held in Los Angeles, but they take place in wintertime nonetheless! The fantastic detailing of the vintage purse adds interest to this look, and the rich metallic tones of the Lanvin sandals and vintage jewellery ensure that this ensemble won’t be overlooked. Perfume from a seasoned yet relevant fashion house such as Burberry, and classic red nails, finish this look with an enviable combination of class, modernity, and vintage glamour.
