The red carpet is a fashion gauntlet for celebrities. You must be pulled together, appropriate, and most importantly, be wearing something that has not been worn by anyone else. Many stars are turning to vintage to get that one of a kind, show stopping dress. Most vintage choices are timeless classics, which is ideal when winning say, Best Actress at the Academy Awards.
