Retro styles can be tough to master. Whether you pine for the glamour of the jazz age or the swinging 60s, the trick is working a little bit of vintage into your look without looking like you’re en route to a fancy dress party. Keen to pull off the look with aplomb? Then look to the A-list for inspiration.

Take, for example, Scarlett Johansson – when she strode out to greet fans ahead of her appearance on the Late Show earlier this month, she gave the world a lesson in mastering the art of retro glamour. With her pin curls, Karen Walker cat eye sunglasses and red pout, it was one part Jackie O, one part Marilyn Monroe – and the total effect was undeniably cool. She looked every inch a film star from the golden age of Hollywood.

Inspired by ScarJo's winning yesteryear look, we’ve turned to the stars for top tips to making retro glamour work for you.

Click through the images above to discover how to do retro glamour the A-list way.
