Vintage at the Golden Globes – Go Brits!

Fans of vintage know that across the pond, vintage is hotter than ever, on trend for both its green attributes (Europe is far more concerned about our environment than the US is) as much as for its timeless style. So we’re not surprised that our beloved Brits were flaunting vintage at the Golden Globes. Kudos to Sally and Emma…and how awesome that Emma’s 14-year-old daughter Gaia wore vintage, too!

Highlighting two vintage looks that have gotten a lot of attention, below, I’d like to offer my quick opinions. I think Zooey Deschanel’s vintage look has trapped her…she doesn’t look “cute” anymore, just stale. And although Joanna Newsom has already landed on all the worst-dressed lists for her frilly, vintage-inspired (is it true vintage?) frock, I thought the dress was a huge risk…that worked!…and she was glowing. Cheers, to taking chances and being different!
