The Secret Behind Jennifer’s Red Carpet Dress…

Jennifer Aniston wore Valentino.
Jennifer Sikora wore Unique Vintage.

Okay, our fabulous assistant Jennifer Sikora wasn’t at the Oscars and her dress was affordable, but she WAS on the red carpet for the new Oz the Great and Powerful movie.

Here’s what Jennifer had to say about selecting and showing off her own red carpet gown…

Walking the red carpet this time was such a different experience than when I walked in May of 2012 for the Avengers event. Before, we were really rushed down the carpet and all the stars had not gotten there yet, so I didn’t really get to experience the whole thing. But this time, I did get to experience the glamor of it all and I must say that I felt stunning in my dress!

I found this dress one evening while looking for modest cocktail dresses. I stumbled upon a lovely website called Unique Vintage. They offer all kinds of styles for every occasion, but their looks are vintage and absolutely stunning!

I knew that I wanted to be able to find a dress that really complimented me and yet still made me feel beautiful — which is exactly what I found through Unique Vintage. With prom season coming up quickly, I thought that this would be a great company to share with you if you are looking for your daughter’s perfect prom dress.

I spent hours enjoying browsing all of their gorgeous dresses. The thing that I love about Unique Vintage is the quality of the fabric and wonderful feeling wearing one of their dresses gives you.

For me, I never felt more beautiful than I did that night on the red carpet. I had so many compliments and everyone wanted to know where my gorgeous dress came from. I was more than happy to share.

Unique Vintage offers a fabulous selection of dresses for special occasions including affordable prom dresses that are just beyond gorgeous — like this one for example:

This eggplant colored dress is only $88 and was featured in both Seventeen and and Teen Prom magazines. It is a 1930’s style, which makes it very unique and elegant.

If you want something a little shorter and more modern, how about this strapless gathered wiggle dress? It’s on sale right now for only $28!

Check out the website, find a dress for your special occasion and be sure and let them know that 5 Minutes for Mom sent you!

Jennifer was provided a dress for the red carpet premier so she could share her experience. All opinions listed are her own.

    I have browsed the site since Jennifer has been talking about it. I LOVE the affordability and will definitely keep it in mind for homecoming next year. It’s a big deal in Texas, and I don’t want to spend $300 for a dress for a 15 year old!!
