Vintage at The Oscars

This blog is typed through drooping eye lids from staying up until the wee small hours watching the 87th Annual Academy Awards… But my goodness was it worth it!

Few things excite us Tootsies more than a red carpet. It’s a magical place where handsome men in tuxedos smile & women float on their Louboutins in dresses that make 5 year old us weep with joy! Up do’s, sequins & floor length gowns on a Sunday evening – quite simply heaven!

Here is a run down of our favourite vintage-inspired looks from The Oscars 2015…

Lupita Nyong’o

Best Supporting Actress Presenter 2015

Oh Calvin Klein! This beauty was hand embellished with 6000 pearls. The racer back style & cut out detailing are to die for. Why have a pearl necklace when you can have an entire pearl dress?!


Emma Stone

Actress in a Supporting Role Nominee
This Ellie Sabb creation was a real show stopper! The vivid green backless dress really let Emma’s alabaster skin & red hair shine.

Anna Faris

Comedy legend

I mean what could be better than a fully sequinned ball gown? You’re quite right… Nothing! This Zuhair gown is nothing short of dreamy.


Rosamund Pike

Best Actress Nominee
How is it possible Rosamund had a baby just over 12 weeks ago?! This Givenchy red lace dress shows off her tiny waist. We love the scallop detailing on the neckline.


Now, followers of our blog will remember this from our #vintagegirlproblems piece. We bemoan our on-going pain at the loss of the well-dressed man. Well here are two wonderful gents fighting the good fight for beautiful tailoring!

Chris Pine

Award Presenter

Chris is fast becoming one of our male fashion heros. We adore this modern take on the classic double breasted jacket.

David Oyelowo

Selma Nominated for Best Picture

David is fearless when it comes to his red carpet looks. This ox blood three piece suit manages to be cutting edge & classic at the same time. His signature style of immaculate tailoring with a quirky twist has got us all hooked.
