Kate Moss Goes 70s Glam in Vintage Velvet and Sequins

They say there’s nothing that Kate Moss can’t pull off, and we totally agree. The iconic supermodel channeled 70s glam with her outfit last Monday as she attended a party at Claridges Hotel. The look was very retro, consisting of a Studio 54-esque long sequined dress, gold metallic sandals, and a shimmery seafoam green velvet cape. Kate complemented the combination with a huge updo and some catty metallic eye makeup. It was the kind of ensemble that could have turned into a disaster, but like a pro, Kate pulled it off with no issues.

Do you like Kate’s party outtfit or do you think it’s overdone? Do you think you can wear such a combination and get away with it? It’s a whole lot of shimmer and glimmer, but interestingly she doesn’t look bad. Would you agree?

Let’s forget about the Kate’s ensemble for a moment and focus on her vintage-y velvet cape. Velvet, in general, is tricky to wear; and more so when it’s colored. However, it can also lend a luxurious feel to a look, as well as add a unique texture. If worn right, and if you select the right velvet for the outfit, the extra can actually do wonders — much like the way a fur scarf can.

We’ve yet to get the details on Kate’s velvet green cape, but you can channel a little bit of her style with this perforated velvet scarf from Armani Collezioni. Use it to dress up an LBD or an all-black outfit. It’s the perfect topper to carry with you when you’re on a date or attending a high-profile shindig.

Admittedly, it is also quite pricey at $545, so if you’re on a budget, what you can do is go with a more classic piece of velvet (no decorations), which you can DIY with a sewing machine and 2 yards of velvet fabric. If you’re too busy to get crafty, here’s an $82 alternative from Donni Charm:
