While we’re all for trying out a new trend from time to time, there’s a certain part of us that loves to embrace the fashion of decades past. Whether it’s a slightly padded shoulder, a ’90s choker necklace or a full circle skirt, rocking a look that connects with an earlier time is a fun way to mix old and new. The latest celeb to show us exactly how to rock a throwback look is Alec Baldwin’s daughter, Ireland Baldwin.
The 19-year-old, who was her dad’s date to the NYC premiere of Mission: Impossible 5 last night, showed up rocking a super ’80s-inspired LBD. With an exposed zipper that ran all the way down the front, the look gave us a quick flashback of those pre-Internet days. But paired with her soft curls and simple heels, Ireland transformed the trend into a totally timeless style.
Ireland was doing a pretty great job modeling the look (her mom is Kim Basinger, you guys) — so great that it seems her pops wanted to take some pointers. After all, what’s a red carpet photo op without some embarrassing dad pics?
