"Evening Of 20th Century Glamour" Benefiting MOCA


Last night the owner of Decades, Cameron Silver, presented a glorious 20th Century Haute Couture fashion show. The dresses and gowns were from his very own vintage couture boutique.

The stunning Norman Norell amethyst mermaid gown is most definitely my favourite. I can see it on someone tall and elegant like Cate Blanchett or Ellen Pompeo.


Mother-to-be Rachel Griffiths, co-hosted this event with Cameron.

Rachel wore a vintage Sarmi red and black printed dress, with a black bow ribbon detail.

Her look was complete with a black clutch and H Stern jewels.


With her growing baby bump perfectly concealed for this occasion, Nicole Richie wore a floaty, earth-mother-style vintage Zandra Rhodes kaftan, with nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

I love her python gold clutch.


Nicky Hilton’s zip flower dress, reminds me of the Versace Spring 2009 zip hearts dress, but I don’t think it’s from the same collection.

This mini proved that LBDs don’t need to be boring. Nicky completed her look with Jimmy Choo Glenys python gladiators.


Liz Goldwyn poses with Marisa Tomei, who was a busy girl last night.

Liz wore an amazing vintage Balenciaga Haute Couture black dress. The satin bowed dress has a baby-doll silhouette, and beautiful tiered lace skirt.

This is my second favourite look of this event, after Marisa.


With her black sexy Brian Atwood sandals, Zoe Saldana wore a sparkling silver vintage James Galanos mini dress with a black satin trim.

The dress is complimented with a H Stern necklace, and matching diamond earrings.

I would’ve love to have seen the sexy tank dress without the oversized blazer, but as we’re seeing more and more, this is a huge trend on the red carpet at the moment.


Garcelle Beauvais was certainly out to have fun last night, and that showed in this vintage Bill Blass feathered hem confection. The dress was covered in gold sequins, to make her one of the golden girls of the night.

Pink Brian Atwood sandals and H Stern jewels complete the look.


On the Decades website it says this vintage Bill Blass leopard print dress is ‘not for everyone‘, and I would agree.

The only other person I can see wearing this dress with the same fearless attitude as Lisa Rinna is Scary Spice, Melanie B.

It may not be to your taste, but you have to agree that Lisa is working the hell out of this dress.

Kudos to her.


*Jaw drop*

What no black? No Dolce & Gabbana? Someone check Rose McGowan’s pulse.

Rose took a night off wearing her favourite Italian’s designers, to wear this sweeping red vintage Loris Azzaro gown.

Her gown was co-ordinated with her lippie, and her look was complete with all gold accessories.


An angelic Allison Miller wore a strapless vintage Ungaro floral dress, which just goes to prove that the floral trend will never die.


Perrey Reeves dazzles in a vintage Loris Azzaro black dress. The black dress stands out with a diamond sequined detail on the empire waist.

    Give Rose a break, she’s worn orange before. She worn lots of colours before – and lots of styles.

    And sometimes, even her hair is orange!

    Are you serious? LOL

    It was a tongue and check comment based on the fact that she does wear a lot of black and Dolce and Gabbana.

    I know she has worn colour in the past.

    This site is meant to be fun. O think you took my comment too literally.

    She looks hilarious, and not in a good way.
