"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.

The Rest Of The SAG Award Red Carpet

Katie Holmes didn’t walk the red carpet as E! had promised. Instead she skipped to present Sean Penn with the Outstanding Actor Award.

I love how she interpreted this asymmetrical Jil Sander Spring 2009 dress, because the runway version was longer, and had cut-outs on each thigh.

She completed her look with leg lengthening nude Stuart Weitzman heels.

Perrey Reeves looked ethereal in her Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 halter gown, which had floral appliqués on the hem of the skirt.

She matched her bronze clutch, with the bronze sash on her gown.

Keisha and Forest Whitaker gave Diane Lane and Josh Brolin a run for their money, in the best dressed couple category.

He was dashing in a black 3 piece suit, whilst she was divine in an Rafael Cennamo silk emerald green one shoulder gown.

Amy Adams didn’t exactly wow me in her strapless purple Giambattista Valli gown, which had a corseted bodice, and gathered detailing on the front. But it was a refreshing colour for her, as she has worn a lot of black lately.

She completed the look with a classic updo, black peep toes, and glittering H Stern jewels.

Brown has never been my favourite colour on the red carpet, so when I saw Andrea Bowen I was initially turned off, but her Rafael Cennamo dress grew on me.

The dress had a brown taffeta bubble hem skirt, with a sequin bodice and leather waistband. She did not try to over dress. Instead she looked her age, and the interesting shape of the dress was not what we would normally expect.

Katrina Bowden wore a dress by Christian Siriano.

The dress would have been better suited to the Grammy’s or the MTV Awards, but she looks so hot it in, that I am sure that will be overlooked.

Laura Linney looked amazing in a coral one-shouldered Michael Kors gown.

She is always so gracious on the red carpet.

Jane Krakowski’s Roberto Cavalli red gown plunged dangerously low.

January Jones did not follow the spring-like colours, nor the red and white trend on the red carpet last night. The Mad Men actress wore an ornate, Grecian-inspired Andrew GN Spring 2009 haltered gown.

I adored the gold detail, which made this black gown really stand out.

Miss Jones seems to have this red carpet thing figured-out.

Taraji P. Henson was absolutely gorgeous wearing white silk jersery Herve Leroux figure-enhancing halter gown.

Christina Applegate went for laid-back glamour wearing a very vivid green Emanuel Ungaro gown.

The colour of this gown is amazing, as it draped loosely around her stunning figure.

Her hair was pulled back to show off her stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and she also carried a Daniel Swarovski clutch.

Laura Dern arrived wearing a black custom-made Burberry gown, with embroidered detail on the top half of the gown, and a single pleat in the full skirt.

This picture does not do this dress justice, as it looked amazing on her.

Julia Ormond wore a navy Azzaro gown, which had a jeweled halter neck, and a jeweled detailed on the hip.

Holly Hunter wore a strapless fuchsia Reem Acra Spring 2009 gown, which had a long train.

I didn’t think she did the gorgeous gown justice.

There is a distinct trend for red heads wearing green dresses on the red carpet. Isla Fisher and Amy Adams have all worked this look, now Alison Pill.

Her fiery red locks complimented her racing green Jason Wu Fall 2008 halter dress with a crisscross bodice perfectly. Not sure about the shoes, but the dress is a great pick.
