One doesn’t generally think of Drew Barrymore, born in 1975, as being a throwback to the Sixties, but the Sixties, in this particular instance anyway, have been very good to her. At last week’s party for the Nylon/Express Denim Issue, Drew was sporting this ¾-sleeve Janine original, circa 1968, in some sort of metallic paisley, an Austin thrift-store find at the delightful price of $25.
The shoes — YSL’s ubiquitous Tribute pumps — are decidedly more up-to-date, and they’re priced to prove it: $760. But expenses notwithstanding, I’m having a hard time remembering Drew looking any better than this, despite there being a photo record of basically everything she’s done since she was six years old and working for Steven Spielberg. And I’m having almost as hard a time imagining someone else her age coming off this well with this look.
Disclosure of Double Secret Motivation: One reason to post this, beyond the hope of garnering a few Rule 5 hits, is to get Lisa’s call on this outfit, given her legendary resemblance to Drew: would she wear this dress?
