Lets talk Oscars

Rounding up the Award season was the Oscars last night, and in true fashion there were some risks that paid off and others that unfortunately fell flat.

You could say a lot of work went into completing these Oscar looks, from the Calvin Klein gown that was made up of 6,000 pearls (Lupita Nyong'o) or the Chanel Haute Couture gown that took 987 hours of work and 27 people to complete (Julianne Moore) it was clear that the actors and actresses were pushing the boat out more than ever this year.

These are just a few of the stunning looks we saw on the red carpet last night. Emma Stone true to form went with a stunning Elie Saab Gown and Jennifer Aniston went with Versace Atelier where as Rosamund Pike made us see red in her stunning crimson Givenchy gown. 

Here at One Vintage Designs we don't think you have to be nominated for an award to feel this special in one of a kind gowns. All our pieces are one of a kind making you feel special from day to night whether your running errands or you off to a party, we can give you that unique feeling all year round. 

Got a big night coming up? this stunning Jamie Dress is available now online

Or perhaps your looking for a new jacket to wear with those classic jeans like this stunning Coco Jacket

Or this sunning  Brook top which is the perfect piece to take you day to night!

Only Human

We have a couple of exciting weeks at One Vintage Designs.

Last week we had our SS15 photoshoot which we are very excited about and a few weeks prior we had Cheryl Fernandez-Versini use our Carrie skirt in her upcoming music video. Check out her single and look below. 

In her Only Human music video she wore a leather bra let along with a One Vintage Designs tulle Carrie skirt

She looked absolutely stunning surrounded by the stars, sand, clouds and the moon. in the video she is controlling the world with her finger tips, releasing energy and glittering stars. 

The overall video has a very natural feel to it, revolving around the nature of life and the world.

And as per usual Cheryl looked absolutely breathtaking.

We couldn't have been more proud to have been a part of  such a beautiful song.

Shine Bright like a Diamond

It's nearly time... 2 weeks to go to be exact and we know you have lots of parties to prepare for.

Thankfully we are here to provide some quick party tips for you to use during this party season. 

Don't be afraid to take those bolder pieces for an outing.


                         Emily Blunt- Lavin Resort 2015                                  Lily Collins- Elie Saab Spring 2015

Lace dresses or lace anything in fact, never goes out of style, it's timeless and always a fail safe option when it comes to party wear.

The two examples above are rather risque ones with the use of the lazer cut-out shape, the dress plays with seduction combined with high sophistication; so it's perfect for those nights when your wanting your dress to do all the talking

We love the similarities and the differences in these gowns. Lily Collins is sporting a more youthful look with the cobalt blue Elie Saab gown and deep v cut with the addition of the laced cut out slits on the side of the bodice. Where-as Emily Blunt is still looking super glamorous, just a little more mellowed out with a more grown up teal shade Lanvin dress the new mum shows off her stunning figure with a pinned in waist and higher cut neck.

Both dresses graze the floor with a delicate pleated sheer skirt showing off both of their enviable figures.

                                  Elise Dress                                                              Charlotte Dress 

We have some stunning options if you wanted to replicate a look like this. This Elise dress in a navy shade has lace arm paneling and is decorated with gold stars on the body with a train to complete the look you couldn't really get more red carpet than that! The Charlotte dress is a little more dress up with the fairy-tale feel of the tulle skirt and lace bodice you will be ready to shut that party down.


     Hilary Rhoda- Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2014                      Olivia Palermo- Piper Lime

Sequins are always one of our favorite trends at Christmas, or anytime of the year in fact. You can always fit a sneaky sequin in somewhere. Once again we have two stunning party ready looks that can be worn in two entirely different ways. Hilary Rhoda has smashed  the red carpet a the Whitney Gala this year with a floor length gold heavily embellished strapless gown leaving it simple on the accessories front with just a pair of drop earrings. Olivia Palermo has gone in a different direction with a sequin skirt and still keeping a dressed up vibe with a two tone bronze jumper. 

                                   Clarisse Dress                                                             Suzy Skirt

We have a number of different sequin looks but the Clarisse Dress is one of our favourites the rare cut and stunning outline makes it a real showstopper. With the pink satin lining you can be on that dance floor for hours. But if you wanted a more relaxed look but no less glamorous this stunning sequin skirt is your best pick, with a matching top as an option you can wear this skirt as many ways as you would like, with a baggy jumper to feel more relaxed or tuck in a baggy white t-shirt and your ready for a comfortable luxurious evening. 

Sending you lots of holiday cheer.

High Drama, High Impact

We love pieces that say a thousand words or leave one speechless and looks like we are not the only ones. 

With the party season hot on our tails it can be difficult to know how to pair certain statement pieces. 

Here are our top tips on how to do so.

Lights, Camera, Action. 

Get ready to hit center stage. 

Olivia Munn's feather mini look was perfect for her recent trip to the ballet and is a chic modern twist on the much coveted Little Black Dress.

Mixing her fun loving dress with the juxtaposed effect of a sleek bun she gives a unique take on her red carpet look. 

By mixing textures and styles she has taken this Lavin runway look to another level ultimately becoming one of the most coveted looks on the red carpet. 

You can recreate the stunning Magic Mike star's look here

Using mix and match pieces is an easy solution to avoid feeling overwhelmed or uncomfortable in your statement looks.

 Pull one statement item and keep the rest simple. 

All That Glitters

Everything in moderation.

The incredible model Jourdan Dunn shows off her figure in this one of a kind Burberry Resort Collection skirt paired with a simple navy peplum jacket at the Burberry Art of The Trench party.

At One Vintage you can feel just as special as Jourdan Dunn with our one of a kind sequin skirt. 

This look is perfect for the upcoming party season, taking a look from day to night with a mix of different patterns and shapes. 

Pairing a statement skirt like this one with a plain t-shirt is a great way to take your look to the next level and is easily achievable. 

If you want to start off your day in a more suitable/casual attire you can start with a simple tee and jean combination then when the party mood strikes whip out your statement piece to blow your fellow guests away.

Roll out the red carpet

Anne Hathaway attended the Interstellar premier in LA wearing this chic Richard Nicoll gown. The dress features a deep v at the front and back giving her great definition to her delicate frame. 

This particular fluid cut and midnight blue color are timeless and really add to the overall look.

With her cropped hair, she keeps it simple with the accessories and lets the dress do all the talking. 

We enjoy a good timeless classic here at One Vintage and the Ellie Gown is no exception with clear fluid lines and a little train to follow you at the back this is the perfect dress to take your next event to another level. 

Jennifer Lopez attends the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala in this stunning Gucci Première navy-blue deep-plunging gown. 

Jennifer Lopez enjoys a good statement dress, standing out is something that comes easy to this Pop beauty and so it should, if we looked like that I think we would be wearing as many plunging, figure hugging gowns as was physically possible. 

She flatters her famous curves with glistening embroidered fabrics to highlight her feminine figure.

Our stunning Halle Dress does just this, highlighting what you want to show and covering things you would prefer to keep hidden. 

Charlotte Casiraghi who is the face for Gucci cosmetics wears Gucci Spring 2015 at the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala.

This stunning green and blue halter neck gown with the tie up belt accentuates and elongates her figure. 

Intriguing detailing and a mix of colours knocks this dress up a few pegs making her look one of the best of the night. 

A successful spin on a vintage inspired design.

Our amazing hand embroidered Vanessa Dress originates from delicate ornate silk fabric, stunning mixed color palettes of blue, white and green.
