We all know what the wardrobe looks like of frequently-featured celebrities, but what about all the real rockstars making moves in the scene?

Think of Vaunte as the Barneys of recommerce, as in, it only carries the most elite labels like Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang and Marchesa. Also, most of the pieces are plucked from the closets of fashion editors, designers and industry insiders.

The newest online resale sites cater to a style-conscious crowd, so you won't have to worry about getting peanuts for your Proenza."

To earn that categorization, the mass of ex-Gilt Groupe employees in New York’s tech, media and fashion industries would require, at the very least, a successful exit.
