Look who Wore vintage to the emmy's

America Ferrera looks smashing at the Emmy's in her vintage Werle dress.
She has really caught the vintage bug hard lately hasn't she? It totally gives her that old world Hollywood movie star look!

Werle is not a name one hears very often and unless you are a die-hard vintage collector you may never have heard of him. Dan Werle designed & produced Ms. Loretta Young's wardrobe,
worn on her show The Loretta Young Show which aired on NBC in America between 1953-1961. It was the first and longest-running anthology drama series to feature a female star as host!
Loretta Young in what ismost likely a Dan Werle dress

Each episode, she would make her appearance on camera wearing, always, a gorgeous custom-designed gown, that soon became the trademark of the show.

Though Werlé was the designer for the television show, his garments were also available at his boutique in Beverly Hills. They really are exquisite pieces and very uncommon. It was nice to see America wearing one and it being accredited as being a Werle!

The last few years have seen a huge influx of stars wearing vintage to events but sadly, we now seem to be going to an era where designers just COPY vintage so stars can get their gowns for free, designers can get their names in the papers and the girl behind the star facade still gets to wear something that LOOKS vintage but satisfies her publicist. I mean no one benefits form America wearing Werle now do they?

So there where endless vintage "looks", some of which are not bad at all....

Christina Applegate looked regal in her one shoulder Reem Acra gown with a full back bustle. You see this exact fabrication on gown from the late 60s

Marcia Cross wore a blatant copy of a 1950s prom dress - oops I mean couture Elie Saab

Mariska Hargitay looked lovely in her one shoulder Carolina Herrera.
I swear I have seen this dress before?

There where lots of gorgeous renditions of that fab one shoulder dress - this is Marchesa and looks to me to be a combo of 1970s Halston with modern day Lanvin.

And finally this Armani Prive gown worn by Heidi Klum could not be more reminiscent of the heyday 1970s Studio 54!
