Beauty-wise, '80s-inspired looks (think: vibrant eyeshadow and over-the-top blush) have been having a moment since late last year. But we hadn't really considered reviving '80s fashion. That is, until we saw Amal Clooney at the premiere of husband George's latest film, Catch-22.
Amal Clooney Just Made a Strong Case for Repurposing Your ‘80s Prom Dress

Clooney wore a forest green, silk taffeta cocktail dress from Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2019 collection. Between the off-the-shoulder silhouette, the short hemline and the exaggerated ruching, the dress screamed 1980s prom or wedding—in a totally stylish way.
To keep things from looking too dated, Alexander and Ella's mom opted for thoroughly modern plastic-y pumps with a black cap toe.
George, for his part, kept things simple in a classic button-down and jacket, (rightfully) allowing Amal's throwback look to steal the spotlight.
Vintage store shopping spree, anyone?
