21 Fab Vintage Finds from Stylish Celebs

We’ve already drooled over their flea market home decor and now, celebs’ vintage fashions are catching our eye. From classic couture and funky finds, scoring that one-of-a-kind piece with a history all its own is what it’s all about. And you definitely don’t need to be a multi-millionaire to pop those patina tags. Read on and get inspired by these 21 celebs with impeccable vintage taste.

1. Elle Varner’s Stephen Sprouse Paints: Sultry songstress Varner’s ‘80s graffiti-print pants were scored at a thrift shop, but don’t forget about flea markets and other off-the-beaten track locales like antique shops and estate sales for unique and fabulous threads. While you might have a rotation of local shops you hit up, don’t forget to rifle through the ever changing selection at flea markets. (via Resurrection Vintage)

2. Rachel Zoe’s Chanel and Louis Vuitton Cropped Jackets: As if we needed more reasons to envy Rachel Zoe’s closet… she describes her daily uniform as Seven jeans, a tee and a Chanel or LV jacket.  Hitting up her fave LA vintage boutiques is a part of her regular shopping routine. Um, and ours too now. (via LA Confidential)

3. Sienna Miller’s Flower Crowns: Sienna checked out a NY flea market with baby Marlowe and grandma in tow. She tried on flower crowns while getting some QT in with the fam. We know where we’re shopping for our next unique bridesmaid accessories. (via PopSugar)

4. Alexa Chung’s Gold Shoes: One of the ways Alexa keeps her It Girl status is by mixing in one-of-a-kind finds that no one can replicate. These gold slippers are no exception. Turns out, metallics have always been in. (via Company)

5. Zooey Deschanel’s New Girl Yellow Jacquard Dress: Basically everything Zooey wears on New Girl looks like it could have been bought on Modcloth, which basically means it’s at least retro-inspired if not full-on retro — like this sunny jacquard dress. (via WWZDW?)

6. Megan Fox’s Art Deco Wedding Band: Fox calls her 1920s wedding ring her best flea market find, and we agree. Her engagement ring may have been a replacement, but the band is irreplaceable. (via Architectural Digest)

7. Nicole Richie’s 1970s Levi’s Bell Bottoms: When Nicole went through her post-Simple Life makeover, she emerged firmly entrenched in ’70s style with flowy maxi dresses and these awesome bell bottoms. If you want to know all about her rummaging rituals, you’re going to want to check out this article when she took little old Vogue thrifting with her. (via Who What Wear)

8. Angelina Jolie’s $26 Premiere Dress: She may have just married partner-of-nine-years Brad Pitt in their fabulous villa near Aix-en-Provence, but Jolie is still fairly down to earth. The humanitarian wonder woman even rocked a $26 vintage dress at the premiere for her movie A Mighty Heart in 2007. (via Yeeeah!)

9. Lauren Conrad’s Floral Apron: Though she ultimately passed on this adorbs apron due to some questionable stains, Lauren’s camera pose reminds us of one cardinal rule of shopping vintage: Get creative! You can find new uses for old things, like turning an overly large apron into a skirt, a tea towel or even wall art! (via Marie Claire)

10. Dita Von Teese’s Cat Eye Sunglasses: It’s no surprise burlesque vixen Dita indulges in retro sunglasses. Really, anything else would look unnatural with the rest of her wardrobe. Nicole Richie is also a collector of vintage eyewear. Twins! (via Style Bistro)

11. Mary-Kate Olsen’s Antique Cartier Engagement Ring: If you’re already a veteran thrift and flea market shopper, we highly suggest incorporating estate sales and auctions into your routine. It’s a must-do for anyone interested in ornate, antique jewelry, like MK’s bauble. (via StyleCaster)

12. Julia Roberts’s Bargain Bin 2010 Golden Globes Dress: The seller of Julia’s LBD didn’t know it was a red-carpet-pick ’til he spied it on the TV pre-show. (via Racked)

13. Solange Knowles’s YSL Clutch and Sweater: We are obsessed with Solange Knowles. If you’re familiar with her Brooklyn home and her uh-mazing sneaker line, you know her personal fashion couldn’t be anything but fabulous. Case in point — this sweater and YSL clutch. Take us vintage shopping, Solange! (via Vogue UK)

14. Lily Collins’s Binoculars: Lily Collins looks super vintage chic thrifting in West Hollywood with her mom. Her pick of the day? Some vintage binoculars in a leather case. (via Just Jared)

15. Ashley Olsen’s 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards Gown: We’re pretty sure having your own killer fashion label, Elizabeth + James, means you can just design whatever dress you want to wear, but Ash’s dedication to hunting down pieces no one else will have is inspiring. Take us thrifting with you, puh-lease! (via She Knows)

16. Drew Barrymore’s Wedding Band: If you’re new to the world of vintage fashion, we suggest starting with jewelry. We’re pretty sure once you go vintage you won’t go back. Just look at Drew’s wedding band, like really. Art deco FTW. (via The Knot)

17. Kate Moss’s Yellow Party Dress: After two decades in the limelight, Kate Moss is an expert at crafting great ensembles. Need some proof? Check out this vintage pick from ’03. (via Harper’s Bazaar)

18. Chloe Sevigny’s Prada Dress: Not everyone can pull off orange, but we love seeing people rock it. Chloe looks gorgeous, and her t-straps seal the deal. (via Posh 24)

19. Marion Cotillard’s Cannes Dress: Forget just thrifting a pre-made dress. Marion’s Cannes premiere dress is made out of thrifted buttons and bric-a-brac. This is a whole other level, people. (via Real Style)

20. Lucy Hale’s Denim Cutoffs: Lucy Hale is one of our style icons on and off the PLL set (OMG, Mona!). Here, she proves she knows one eternal truth: You can’t beat a good pair of cutoffs. (via Wet Paint)

21. Rachel Bilson’s Folksy Character Skirt: Most of us can’t rock the funky Latin-inspired embroidered clothing you find at street markets throughout Central and South America. Rachel Bilson, of course, can. Fine, we’ll try too next time we see something like this! (via PopSugar)
