Portrait of 1930's Glamour: Nicole Richie wears Vintage

Nicole Richie attends the 2011 Met Ball in New York in a white Vintage Couture 1930's bias cut gown from The Paper Bag Princess. While exuding the classic glamour of the past with her sleek waves and styling, Richie's gown lends a modern edge with its rhinestone trim and sleeve cutouts, exposing not all, but just enough of her arms.

Black, White, and the Red Carpet: Ashley Olsen in Vintage Dior

 While the 2011 Met Ball in New York was full of inspirational pieces by the late Alexander McQueen, we were inspired by Ashley Olsen's choice to wear a vintage Haute Couture Dior gown circa 1980's from The Paper Bag Princess. Tailored to fit, the slim silhouette contrasts the voluminous white pouf sleeves creating a simple, yet dramatic look.
