Naomi Campbell proved that good design is timeless when she brought a decades-old Chanel dress back to life at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, May 15.

Campbell, 53, attended the Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Premiere at the 77th annual event in the exact black sequin dress she first wore on the runway in 1996. The look, unveiled as part of Karl Lagerfeld’s Fall/Winter 1997 collection, featured beaded straps and slits on the floor-length skirt exposing Campbell’s legs.

At Wednesday’s soiree, Campbell paired the piece — which looked just as good as it did at its premiere — with pointed pumps and dangling diamond earrings. She wore her hair in thick curls.

Campbell was styled by Law Roach for the occasion. The “image architect” has earned a reputation for combing through the archives of major fashion houses.

At the 2024 Met Gala, Roach, 45, was dressed Zendaya in two different stunning dresses. On May 6, she made her first appearance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a Maison Margiela by John Galliano number based on a 1999 Dior dress. The design featured a one-shoulder construction with a strap made of billowing fabric that wrapped around the green and blue striped bodice of the dress. The look was completed with a mermaid skirt and fruit embellishments.

The garment was with Featuring an off-the-shoulder corset bodice and a full skirt. Zendaya completed the look with a bouquet of flowers on her head, perfectly fitting the Sleeping Beauty: Fashion Resurgent theme and the Garden of Time dress code.

Roach revealed Extra Earlier this month, he learned that he spotted the second dress at a vintage store and that Zendaya was so in love with it that she bought it immediately.

“Oh, we’re buying,” Roach said Extra in an interview on May 7th. “Because from our perspective, we really support small businesses. And I think it’s unfair to take loans from people who use these clothes for a living.”
