There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you desperately try to recreate at home. in’Great outfits in fashion history,’ Fashionista editors revisit their all-time favorite lewks.
I have a weakness for celebrities Prada. Even when I’m not looking for them, I’ll take a closer look at these looks when researching for this column: Sofia Carson’s dress with feather trim, Sadie Sinks tailored long shorts, BTS’ unofficial recap of the fall 2019 men’s collection. (My colleagues beat me to some other favorites, e.g Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar-worthy princess dress and Sarah Paulson look that made Rihanna jealous.) It just happens like when I came back to Aubrey Plaza in a white sequin mini dress with a chain strap at the premiere of “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” – one Google later and I found out it was, yup, a custom riff on the house’s Resort 2016 collection.
Long before she checked into a luxury resort in Taormina, Plaza rehearsed Italian fashion on the red carpet—a simplified version of a mixed-print sequin number from the Prada resort runway: The original snakeskin bib and cartoon eye print were swapped for simple horizontal stripes and plain white sequins, but the baby blue sides (also fully sequined) remained.

Keeping with the more minimal approach to the look, the actor accessorized with strappy, metallic heeled sandals from Casadei and a handful of silver rings. She sported a chin-length bob (and bangs, because it was 2016), with subdued makeup: just a bit of brown smokey eye and peachy lip gloss.
