Grand Gowns

A plethora of grand gowns showed up at the Oscars last night. There was a sense of optimism in the air. Gone were the feelings of restraint that have been prevalent during this economic downturn. Seems like everyone wanted to harken back to happier times, when luxury and beauty ruled. Below are some vintage 50's gowns by Dior + the red one by Jacques Griffe. Most of these pictures are from the Met's Costume Collection.
