Emily Ratajkowski’s Vintage Versace Dress Was Worn by Another It Girl 21 Years Ago

After her ethereal turn in Tory Burch on the red carpet at the Met Gala, Emily Ratajkowski wore not one but two additional looks to the after-party she hosted with stylist Carlos Nazario, model Paloma Elsesser, Luar designer Raul Lopez, and photographer Renell Medrano.

For the initial celebrations, Ratajkowski wore a sheer corseted custom look by Dilara Findikoglu, complete with a pearly, Chanel-inspired belt that read “EmRata.” But it’s her second look—a purple sequined Versace minidress sourced from Archive Vintage—that has created the most buzz on social media.

The look in question, from Versace’s spring-summer 2002 show, was worn by another It girl some 21 years earlier. Chloë Sevigny wore the same dress at the Versace Couture launch party at the Ritz Paris in July 2002—months after its debut on the runway—and shared a throwback picture of herself in the dress on her Instagram Stories, shortly after Ratajkowski posted her look online. Sevigny styled the dress with a very 2002 accessory: a chunky layered necklace. 

Emily Ratajkowski has championed vintage Versace before. She wore a look from the Atelier Versace spring-summer 1992 collection to last year’s Met, originally modeled by Yasmeen Ghauri on the runway. Besides Versace, her growing vintage wardrobe also includes archive pieces from Chanel, Armani, and Dior.
