In our opinion, there are few things as criminally underrated as shopping your own closet for events. If you looked BOMB in that dress a couple of years back, why not dig it right out and sport it again? After all, getting photographed twice isn’t a crime — it’s actually very, very smart and celebs do it all the time. Case in point: When Elle Fanning wore her Cannes dress to prom. Kirsten Dunst is the latest celeb to show off her frugal side.
In an appearance at Paris Couture Fashion Week, Kirsten wore a dress that looked very familiar — but only for those with a very long memory.
The Fargo actress’s dress that she wore in the front row at this week’s Chopard event is a repeat from 2004. Her white Christian Lacroix minidress made its first debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party 13 YEARS AGO.
But everything old is new again with some styling tricks. Kirsten switched things up at the beginning of the night, donning a black blazer with only a little bit of the dress peaking out of the bottom.
And not only was her dress a much-loved favorite, but her shoes are old reliables that she’s been wearing since 2007. In fact, according to her stylists Nina and Clare Hallworth, the only thing new about Kirsten’s look was her Chopard diamond necklace. And since the stylists have been with their client since the early 2000s, it’s likely that they had a hand in the original look.
If you’re inspired by the ethereal minidress, take a tip from the pros: It’s never something you just fished out from the back of your closet. It’s “vintage” you!
