As you know, we love vintage inspiration big or small, and this year’s Grammy Awards were chalk-full of unique vintage style inspiration.

Both the men and women of music have embraced their idols past, to create new looks that will last straight into the future. It doesn’t take much to tell, so let’s take a look:

ADELE

Adele looked amazing in this floral Valentino dress, and while some might say it looked too much like tapestry, style aficionados will note the throwback to early 1960s floral patterns, and big skirts, like those seen on “Mad Men”.

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry and stylist Johnny Wujek went the perfect direction with this mint green gown by Gucci, giving the California girl a taste of Nashville, and the decked out glamour of Priscilla Presley in the 1970s. Just check out that hair!

JACK WHITE

Jack White’s performance outfit was a nod to rockabilly days past, with a hint of 1960s mariachi thrown in there!

JANELLE MONAE

Janelle Monae described her outfit as a handful of “ideas”, but the one that stands out most is her Matador flare, which you can glimpse at almost every angle.

KIMBRA

The boldest, and best, in our opinion had to go to Kimbra who channelled the glamour and whimsy of Hollywood. From Jean Harlow to Esther Williams the delicate tulle dress by Australian designer Jamie Lee Major evokes the magic of the past, but sets us straight forward into the future! Love this look. If only more stars had the guts to bring the fashion on when it comes to these events!

Then the world would be a better place . . .

One thought on “VINTAGE INSPIRATION AT THE GRAMMY AWARDS 2013

  1. I think the Adele-Betty Draper connection is spot on! I am personally a big fan of the fashion portrayed in Mad Men. What’s interesting is that they cover the whole spectrum from the uber-feminine look to the garcon-type women’s fashion. Nice post!
