The Best Vintage Fashion of 2023 Awards Season

What’s old is new again — check out this award season’s red carpet. Hunter Schafer, Zendaya, Cate Blanchett and more used the red carpet as a showpiece at the BAFTAs, NAACP Image Awards, Oscars Wait for the opportunity to showcase vintage fashion at awards shows. Many gowns and suits were recently designed by designers such as Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior and many more. A particularly popular era: 1989-2005 (which, coincidentally, includes certain years in which Gen Z was born.)

And these looks are very much in keeping with the style of the time. Take Olivia Rodrigo, for example. With the help of stylist Danielle Goldberg, the pop star wore horse-print Chloé pants created by Stella McCartney during her tenure at the label on the red carpet. Featuring a flared leg and low rise, these trousers have unbelievably occupied multiple quadrants of the fashion charts. While vintage Versace—that is, 90s—has been worn to events by Zendaya, Dua Lipa, and Bella Hadid. So stylish it needs to be worn twice.

Vintage caters to the fashion industry’s growing desire for sustainability. Why make a whole new outfit when there are so many great pieces just waiting to be re-worn? And the looks don’t have to feel too rooted in the past, either. Popular collectibles such as Tab Vintage, Pechuga Vintage and Shrimpton Couture have become reliable go-tos for celebrities and fashion lovers, offering curated vintage fashions of the moment.

Then there’s Cate Blanchett, who not only reworks previous red carpet looks but also reworks garments into brand new creations. An Alexander McQueen gown was transformed into a fitted top; lace repurposed from an Armani workshop was used in a new gown. Blanchett shows how vintage fashion can be used in a variety of ways.

Below, check out some of the best retro fashion moments from this past awards season.
