Vintage Spotting: Fave Vintage Awards Show Dresses

Written by emilyc

I remember seeing Julia Roberts in that unforgettable vintage Valentino gown at the Oscars and thinking, “I can’t believe that’s vintage – it fits so well with this year’s aesthetic. Ever so timeless.”

Obviously those are the typical observations of any 11-year-old (my age at the time she wore that fabulous thing), but it goes to show you how some designs have the power to transcend what’s “in” this season, and make an impact no matter what year it’s worn.

Take a look at some other impressive vintage awards show gowns:

Vintage Christian Dior

Vintage Atelier Versace


Vintage Valentino

Vintage Armani

Vintage Elie Saab
