Sydney Sweeney has a vintage moment in '80s Mugler

Sydney Sweeney is the latest star to embrace vintage fashion on the red carpet, joining the likes of Zendaya, Bella Hadid, and Kim Kardashian.

Over the weekend, the Euphoria star dressed up for the Hollywood Critics' Association TV Awards in a green velvet vintage Mugler dress from 1981, with a strapless structured neckline and very of-the-era waist peplum. She styled the dress with shimmering De Beers jewels and Jimmy Choo heels, and wore her hair in an elegant up-do with face-framing tendrils.

Sweeney's stylist, Molly Dickson, shared some insight into the story behind her red-carpet dress, explaining how the actress was a big part of the process: "Syd really envisioned a vintage dress for this and after lots of research we found this 1981 Mugler from New York Vintage."

The actress isn't the only Euphoria star who's been promoting vintage of late; her co-star Zendaya has become a known as champion for second-hand dressing, both on and off the red carpet.

With her stylist Law Roach, Zendaya has had some of the most memorable vintage moments from Valentino to Versace, the actress consistently dips into the archives for her biggest fashion moments.

Other big names like Bella Hadid and Kim Kardashian have also embraced vintage on the red carpet over the years, inspiring consumers to embrace vintage fashion in our own wardrobes.

"Wearing a vintage gown on the red carpet relays a strong message of new consumption – vintage today is a lifestyle more than a trend," Sophie Hersan, Vestiaire Collective’s fashion director and co-founder previously explained to us. "I think this decade will see this movement grow even bigger; vintage allows a celebrity to be glamorous and celebrate beautiful designs from the past while representing something more than fashion – making a stand for sustainability."
