Most of us are grateful if we can still fit into a favourite dress a year after we bought it — never mind nearly 20 years later.

And when the dress in question is little more than a silk scarf with only a decorative brooch to protect your modesty, even women who have counted the calories and made the most of their gym membership might be forgiven for never going there again.

Not J-Lo. The actress and singer took to the Versace catwalk at Milan Fashion Week in the iconic green silk chiffon dress she last wore to the Grammys almost two decades ago. In fact, this was an even more revealing remake of the original piece — sleeveless with extra cut-outs.

Best of all, as a 50-year-old mother of twins, she looked better now than she did back then at 30.

And she’s not the only celebrity stepping out in styles we saw them in decades ago.

Just look at the wonderful Rita Moreno, now 87, who made her name in West Side Story. 

She returned to the red carpet at the 2018 Oscars wearing the same dress she donned to accept her Best Supporting Actress award in 1962 — 56 years earlier!

At a time when we’re all more conscious about throwaway fashion, there’s nothing we like to see more than a thrifty celeb taking a step in the right direction. 

Rita Moreno: 56-year gap

At the 2018 Academy Awards, actress, singer and dancer Rita Moreno, now 87, donned the black-and-gold gown she had last worn to collect her Best Supporting Actress gong for her role in West Side Story back in 1962 — 56 years earlier.

Meryl Streep: 30-year gap

Nominated for The Deer Hunter at the 1979 Oscars, Meryl Streep wore a black dress with flouncy sleeves — and brought it out again for the 2009 Baftas.
