When Solange and Rihanna stepped on the red carpet at the CFDA Awards in their retro-inspired gowns, you could’ve easily confused them for Diana Ross and Josephine Baker. Now more than ever, celebrities are drawing inspiration from previous eras for the red carpet. Whether it’s Beyonce in a ’70s-inspired lace gown and veil or Lupita Nyong’o in flapper gear replete with a headband and feathers, stars are embracing retro looks that stand the test of time.
We love to see celebs channel timeless styles from every decade while adding their own modern twist. From ’50s pompadours to ’90s grunge, some classic looks are too good to let go. Take a trip with us down memory lane and find out which stars dress like past fashion icons.
