Since we have already spent many months in quarantine (and it seems that we have many more to go), things have the potential to become monotonous. Elizabeth Hurley, a model, and actress, is raising the stakes for us by recreating one of the most stunning outfits she wore while wearing Versace more than two decades ago. Luckily for us, she is doing this.

At the 1999 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, Hurley debuted the dress with the cowl-neck and backless design for the first time. A high leg slit was another stunning aspect of the purple chainmail stunner.

Today, exactly 21 years after the glitzy event, Hurley donned the same slinky dress to pose for the #TurnUpNotIn initiative that is being hosted on This time around, the 54-year-old actress chose to relax on a bed made of fur blankets up against a decorative screen rather than making her way down a red carpet with Hugh Grant by her side.

This is not the first time that Hurley has worn a reimagined version of one of her legendary outfits from Versace. Years prior to wearing the dress she wore to the CFDA Awards, the actress stunned onlookers at the post-premiere party for Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994 by wearing another dress designed by Versace. This time, the dress was a black stretch-silk slip that was sewn together with the brand’s signature gold safety pins.

After many decades had passed, Versace redesigned the now-iconic dress, and Hurley photographed for the April 2019 edition of Harper’s BAZAAR wearing the modernized version of the dress.
