Red-carpet Vintage Spot

I always love seeing vintage on the red-carpet. Glee actress Dianna Agron wore vintage Chanel couture to yesterdays Screen Actors Guild Awards. It's a navy lace strapless dress courtesy of Rare Vintage, although I'm not sure what era (although the nineties can be considered vintage now, right?). I love the length of this dress, and it is classic, beautiful, flawless Chanel. I'm not totally loving her hair and her shoes - a bit clunky perhaps - but I'm loving everything about January Jones in brand new Carolina Herrera on the same carpet.

All this Chanel talk has got me lusting after vintage Chanel suits. Suits or gowns, what a pity I can't afford either. Knock off anyone?

Wow, January Jones looks great! (And doesn't she just have the best film star name?)

January Jones' dress proves that short sleeves can look fantastic!

As for the vintage Chanel suit, maybe search out a Davidow one; they made very faithful copies in the early 60s,

I absolutely love January Jones' dress. Her hair is perfect as well. She looked stunning during the Screen Actors Guild Awards. :)
