Sadly there was only 1 Vintage gown last night, worn by actress Natalie Portman. A vintage Christian Dior gown in red with black polka-dots, circa 1954. I have to mention that it is not all about VINTAGE why I applaud Natalies choice. I personally am tired of the same generic gowns paraded down the red carpet courtesy of the celebrity stylists. Granted each starlit chooses the gown in the end of the day but based on options presented from stylists who are trying to be "on trend" or fashion houses sending their latest design. I wish that I would see the woman's personality more. An illustration of their uniqueness reflected in their style as they cast their net a little wider and opt for something 'else'. A dress never worn before on a Red Carpet, not necessarily Vintage (pre-1989) but even a pieces from a designer archive of looks from season's past. Trend's to me are part of the herd mentality as people strive to maintain the status quo by letting others lead the way.
Thankfully there are some true Style Mavens who dare to be different!
