Milla Jovovich takes inspiration from Liz Hurley’s `safety pin` Versace gown
London: Model-turned-actress Milla Jovovich caused a stir after she stepped out in a daring dress similar to Elizabeth Hurley’s 1994 black Versace gown, which was fastened together with large safety pins in 1994, at a fashion show.
All eyes shifted to the 36-year-old in Paris on Sunday when she arrived at the Atelier Versace fashion show in the peek-a-boo black dress held together with metal rings.
The mother-of-one completed her look with natural make-up and an elegant black clutch bag.
It’s likely that the ‘Resident Evil’ star was inspired by Hurley’s fashion forward frock, which she wore to the premiere of ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ with then boyfriend Hugh Grant.
Hurley’s dress has since earned a page in fashion history and was hailed as the greatest red carpet gown of all time in 2008 by UK department store Debenhams.
“Liz Hurley’s daring safety pin dress is one of the most famous black dresses worn on the red carpet, which made her a household name overnight,” the Daily mail quoted a spokeswoman for Debenhams as saying at the time.
