Designer Todd Oldham, known for his exuberant colors and kitschy patterns, stepped away from fashion in the late ’90s—but that hasn’t stopped Lena Dunham from reaching for his boundary-breaking clothes. Back in February, the actress wore a black and silver studded halter dress from Spring 1994 to the final season premiere of Girls, adding that, “We’re doing all vintage Todd Oldham, all the time.” Last night, for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she resurrected another piece from decades past—this time plucked straight from Naomi Campbell and the pages of Vogue.
By picking the graphic minidress, Dunham took her sartorial cues directly from a young Campbell, skipping hand in hand with Christy Turlington in the February 1992 issue. The look was pulled by longtime friend and vintage dealer Gabriel Held, yet Dunham put her own stamp on the outfit by exchanging the supermodel’s cowboy hat and espadrilles for a sleek high ponytail, fishnets, and a tiny matching purse. “No one can ever be Naomi,” wrote Dunham on Instagram. “But we can dream.” Here’s to keeping that dream alive, with a little help from Todd Oldham.
