While Bella Hadid opts for vintage Dior and Aquaria revives a legendary Versace look, here are the best fits of the week

Contemporary style is perhaps more indebted to Jean Paul Gauliter than it was in the years leading up to his sudden retirement in 2020. Between a resurgence in Y2K fashion and a bottomless hunger for niche, one-off pieces, the resale market of vintage JPG has gone through the roof. See also: Roberto Cavalli, Tom Ford’s Gucci, and Galliano’s Dior.

If the last week or so is anything to go by, a huge number of celebs are lucky enough to have a plug – or at least a prime membership to The RealReal. Bree Runway, Symone, and Cardi B have all torn through Gaultier’s archives, pulling out limited edition Supreme collabs, couture gowns, and cyberpunk slips from the designer’s AW95 collection.

Bella Hadid, a self-professed depop fanatic, also flexed her thrifting muscles, showcasing 00s Dior and Pucci pedal pushers. Elsewhere, Drag Race’s Aquaria stepped into a latex bondage dress inspired by Donatella Versace’s 1996 Met Gala look and Lil Nas X’s turn on the 2020 Grammys red carpet. Then, keeping to theme, Dua Lipa channelled heritage “Slave 4 U” Britney in full-look Blumarine while Megan Thee Stallion gave 90s red carpet vixen in a slinky, diamante chain mail creation by Natalia Fedner.
