“I love a vintage dress because sometimes — not always, but sometimes — you get a piece and it’s palpably weighted in history,” Gillian Anderson muse at a dinner Friday hosted by Lady Amanda Harlech to mark a new partnership between William Vintage and American Express at the St Pancras Hotel.
Decked in vintage Azzaro with Adler jewels, Anderson added: “I can remember wearing a vintage Dior couture dress to the Baftas. As I was walking out the door, I was told: ‘You know there’s a bolero to match that was made for Wallis Simpson?’ And I was nominated that night for playing Wallis Simpson. And I didn’t win! But that night I started to appreciate real vintage clothes – as opposed to the stuff I used to think was vintage I wore as a student.” (Women’s Wear Daily)
