Elizabeth Hurley just threw on the shiny purple gown she wore to an awards show in 1999, and it looks like five minutes have passed, not 21 years.

The 54-year-old shared an image of herself lounging in the iridescent cowl-neck Versace dress she previously wore in 1999 to the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards.

“Just hanging at home watching tv for @harpersbazaarus in a @versace dress I wore 21 years ago to the #cfdaawards #lockdown #nineweekstomorrow#TurnUpNotIn,” she wrote in the caption.

When Liz wore the gown the first time, it was accompanied by a wavy layered hairstyle and a sparkly bag.

This time, she accessorised it with a luxe blanket and ... a remote control.

In response to the throwback, the star’s 18-year-old son with businessman Steve Bing, Damien, praised his mum with some star-eyes emoji. 


Throughout her time in lockdown, Elizabeth has been posting a number of throwbacks on Instagram.

Last week, she shared a photograph of herself from an issue of Vogue Spain, as well as a TV ad she’d done for Magnum ice cream.

Liz isn’t the only star to have dug out some classic outfits during lockdown. Amanda Holden has also been sharing pics of her wearing some of her finest - including her wedding dress - as she goes about doing her household chores.
