There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

Despite Catherine Zeta-Jones‘ penchant for wearing black and “vampy” makeup throughout the ’90s (ironically foreshadowing her role as Morticia Addams in the 2022 Netflix series “Wednesday“), her style noticeably started to shift near the end of the decade, with dresses in brighter colors, interesting patterns and more eye-catching textures.

Zeta-Jones introduced this new-to-her style era at the 1999 MTV Movie Awards in a pastel pink Emanuel Ungaro slip dress complete with dainty lace paneling at the bustier and sides of the lingerie-inspired number. Accessories-wise, the actor kept it equally vibrant with a robin-egg-blue sequined Fendi Baguette bag and strappy silver heels.

With spring here and summer right around the corner, there’s no better time to pin this look on the style inspiration board. Recreate Zeta-Jones’ ’90s pastel slip moment with our selects below.
