Jemima Kirke is a British-born actress with impeccable style. You probably recognize her from HBO’s hit TV show Girls, in which she plays Jessica Johansson (aka Jessa). Kirke is always looking effortlessly chic in vintage-inspired looks. Also an artist and daughter of a designer mother, Lorraine Kirk, it’s no surprise Jemima has such amazing style. We love this outfit she wore while filming Girls in 2012. The flowing-floral dress, killer pumps and unique accessories encompass a perfect bohemian ensemble. Simply watch any episode of Girls or check out some of her red carpet looks, to find even more inspiration from the amazingly hip Jemima Kirke.
Lisa Bonet, best known for her role as Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show, has been working amazing-vintage-inspired looks since the early ‘80s. Bonet is always incorporating funky-vintage pieces into her various looks. During recent-red-carpet appearances Bonet proved that she’s still got it. We loved this menswear-inspired look she wore to a Golden-Globe after party. Only Bonet could pull off a vintage-bowler hat on the red carpet with such ease.
Dita Von Teese
Steering away from the bohemian theme, Dita Von Teese is our favorite-vintage-pin-up gal. Adored by designers like John Paul Gaultier, Teese is seen as fashion icon due to her amazing style. Teese always rocks the red carpet, and this gown she wore to a 2013 launch event exudes old-hollywood glamour. Formerly married to Marilyn Manson, and a must-see burlesque dancer, Teese has now cemented her place in the fashion world as a 50’s-vintage-queen.
Nicole Richie, the famous daughter of R&B singer Lionel Richie, established herself as a fashion designer and style icon with her flawless sense of fashion. Known for her hippie style, Richie is always sporting vintage maxi-dresses, clutches, and hats. This beautifully patterned dress she wore to a 2013 red carpet event is a perfect example of a stylish-vintage look. From the cheetah-print shoes, fringed clutch, and amazing full sleeve gown, Richie effortlessly works this vintage outfit.
Our list couldn’t be complete without some stylish-male celebrities that rock amazing-vintage wear. Johnny Depp, the award-winning-American actor and producer, has truly mastered the art of vintage-inspired style. Whether he’s on or off the red carpet, Depp is constantly working statement vintage pieces while showing off his eclectic sense of style. Wearing unique hats, long scarves, and ripped jeans, Depp has consistently pulled off vintage looks with his famous nonchalance.
Another award-winning-American actor with great style, Jared Leto incorporates awesome-vintage apparel into many of his looks. Leto’s punk rocker style makes him stand out from the crowd, and we love that he brings this edge to his red carpet looks. At the UK premiere of Dallas Buyers Club, Leto worked an amazing-vintage fedora, sleek blazer, and trendy dress-shirt.
Erykah Badu, also known as Low Down Loretta Brown or Badulla Oblongata, has worked many different-style choices to go along with her numerous-stage names. She displayed a lot of afro-centric inspirations in the 1990s, but the 2000s brought out bigger-vintage coats and huge hats. Badu has thus established herself as a fashion-music icon. And her latest gig with Givenchy is a definite stamp of approval by high-end fashionistas all over the world.
