INTRODUCING: LAUREN WILSON ITA'S NEWEST CONTRIBUTOR

The ITA team is thrilled to introduce our newest team member, Lauren Wilson! Lauren is  currently pursuing a master’s degree in costume studies at New York University. Prior to this, she worked on the VIP relations team at Gucci in New York City. Throughout her undergraduate studies at the University of Southern California, she also worked at Vogue, ELLE and Giorgio Armani while also completing a semester abroad in Paris studying at the Sorbonne.

Lauren has come on board to manage a new celebrity focused feature that she has cleverly titled "Step & Repeat." This feature compares today's red carpet fashions with similar designs and magazine editorials from the past. 


GOLDEN GLOBES 2015. Award season is well underway in Hollywood and while we care about who takes home the gold we can’t help but think that the real winners of the night are the starlets parading around in one of a kind couture dresses. After a  little dig through the archives of fashion photography, I got to thinking and seeing how inspired the dresses of the present emulate the past. Take a peek at some of your favorite stars putting a little old world flair onto their new world frocks at the 2015 Golden Globes. Just try not to call them outfit repeaters.

Dakota Johnson shimmered in one of the 50 Shades of Grey in this sequined silver Chanel Couture gown. Wonder if she knew that the December 1935 issue of Vogue featured a silver and sequined evening gown by none other that Coco Chanel herself. Looks like Chanel has their archives in order!

Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike makes the cut in this ethereal Vera Wang gown and 5 weeks post baby to boot! Looks like she took a page from Rock and Roll sex symbol Jerry Hall in a photo of Hall circa 1970.

British darling Felicity Jones was regal in a Christian Dior Couture ballgown. It’s dramatic and sophisticated silhouette looked like a nod to Cecil Beaton’s 1936 images of Charles James’ cloaks in a story aptly titled “Poetic Mantles” for Vogue.

   The best actress winner took a page from Greek classicism when she donned this Atelier Versace draped gown. She looks like she could have stepped out of George Hoyningen- Huene’s photos of the diaphanous Vionnet gowns for Vogue in 1933.

The other best actress winner and red-head of the bunch, Julianne Moore looked sleek in Givenchy Couture while also rocking the trend of the evening, metallic. Her liquid silver halter gown is reminiscent of this Jean Patou gown from 1938.
