Golden Globes Glamour 2012 - Our vintage take on the red carpet looks

It's always wonderful to peruse the silks, sequins and ruffles on any red carpet, and the annual Golden Globe awards are no exception. And it was when I saw this stunning cream and red Atelier Versace number on Angelina Jolie that I had a spark of inspiration...

It may be a little different, but I couldn't help drawing comparisons to this gorgeous red satin vintage gown from My Vintage...

Vintage Full Length Satin Evening Gown UK Size 12 - £65
It would be great if I had a vintage alternative for every single jaw dropping dress on the GG red carpet, but alas no! However, I have collated some glittering and impressive frocks that would be fit for any award ceremony...

If you look at the best of the dresses this year, it's all about the full length sweeping gown - mainly in scarlet reds, berry pinks, golden nudes and midnight blues. Here are some of my favourites...

Dramatic strapless gowns, long fitted sleeves and plunging necklines were all real features this year, and with that in mind here are some Golden Globe-inspired picks from the current vast selection of vintage evening dresses at My Vintage...
