Today is a day for the fans, especially golden ones. After all, it's the Golden Globes and the fans are out and about in full force for a red carpet that is just hours away. There have been so many pre-Globe parties. I went to the Bvlgari gala Thursday night at Green Acres (Ricky Martin performed); the W party at Chateau Marmont on Friday night (everyone was there but I was most excited to congratulate Melissa Leo on her win earlier in the day at the Broadcast Critic's Awards); and last night I attended the annual Heaven Gala benefiting Art of Elysium where Rachel Bilson and I presented our friend Jasmine, who has enjoyed discovering her inner fashionista through the programs that The Art of Elysium has organized (Devo performed!). It's also literally a golden day in Los Angeles as the sun is in full force and the temperature is approaching 80 degrees. No Vitamin D deficiency in Tinsel Town today.

It seems the most appropriate vintage piece to blog today is something that is golden and has a fan and low and behold, here is an Emanuel Ungaro design in silk jacquard that fills the bill . The romantic blouse has full 1930s style sleeves and an unusual asymmetric pleated fan that decorates the front of the elegant top. The skirt has a slight yoke waist band and pleats over each hip. So many details that manage to work so well together in an ultra feminine and supremely sophisticated manner that celebrates fans and is good as gold. I don't expect any fans on the bleachers at tonight's Globes to wear something so Parisian, but wouldn't it be lovely?

Now it's time for me to get a few rays of sun. I've been in retail jail so many hours this week that I need my share of Vitamin D. Have fun watching the Globes.
