They did it again! Mad Men took honors for Best Dramatic Television Series for the third year in a row at this year's Golden Globes. And while I tune in to the show for the banter, confrontations and day-to-day happenings at Sterling Cooper, as a vintage fashionista, it's an extra-special treat to view costume designer Jane Bryant's hard work each week. As we await the highly-anticipated 4th season and the return of the show's glamorous female characters, many of us are deciding to ditch our jeans and glam it up a bit ourselves. It seems Jane Bryant has single-handedly created a renewed interest and demand for figure-hugging dresses, glamorous peignoirs and shoulder-baring spaghetti straps. And there's nothing like the real deal: authentic vintage finds from the 1960s. So try some of these glitzy gowns with your next highball or martini. Just click the slideshow to see the selection!

Hollywood's Award Season has officially begun and while umbrellas were the most popular accessory at this year's Golden Globes, it takes more than a little rain to stop the glitz and glamour. Of course, only a few celebrities dared to wear vintage at the Globes--most notably Julia Roberts in vintage YSL and Penelope Cruz in vintage Armani--but a vintage fashionista can hold out hope that we'll see more smashing vintage evening wear strutting down red carpets in the week's ahead. Of course, donning a vintage evening gown doesn't guarantee that you'll end up on a best-dressed list---you still need a discerning eye!---but reaching back to the early era of Hollywood glamour can certainly give you a fashion edge. Just take a look at this little collection of vintage evening gowns that are Red Carpet-ready! Click the slideshow to see the selection.
