Everyone loves a throwback. When Reese Witherspoon tried it Legally blonde outfit a few years ago, 17 years after the film’s release, the internet exploded with screenshots, pink heart emojis (trés Elle Woods), and tweets of appreciation.
Or, take last year’s Marvel Eternals premiere, where Angelina Jolie appeared side-by-side with her daughters Zahara and Shiloh, who wore two of Jolie’s old gowns: Zahara in her 2014 Oscar gown and a Shiloh she wore an old Gabriela Hearst gown, reworked to fit her younger sitter.
Being a dress rep is in and wasteful eating is out, as demonstrated by Kate Winslet last night Avatar 2: The Water Way Before. The actress wore a dress almost as old as the first Avatar movie. Well, not really.
The sequel to Avatar finally premiered last night in Leicester Square, a full thirteen years after its original iteration, and the stars stepped out in all their finest attire to promote the long-awaited follow-up.
Including Winslet, who wore a black Badgley Mischka halter neck dress that she originally wore to her film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival The tailor in 2015. Winslet accessorized the gown, which features embroidered metallic detailing on the sides of the bust, with ribbed silver drop earrings and a tousled updo.
The actress appeared to match co-star Sigourney Weaver, who wore a tailored black Alexander McQueen gown that also featured metallic detailing on the ribs, similar to Winslet’s dress.
Winslet plays “Ronal”. The water wayher first acting role under Cameron’s directorial control since 1997’s Titanic, where she said she was “absolutely terrified” of him.
He has since admitted that Cameron has calmed down a lot in the 25 years since they first worked together, telling The Telegraph: ‘I loved doing Avatar with Jim – he’s so much calmer now. […] In those days, there was no room for him to say, “That might not work.” He had to make it work. There have been all those conversations about this huge movie, Titanic. I can’t imagine the pressure. As we get older we learn to say, “I made a mistake.” We’re all getting better at this, aren’t we?
Other stars who walked the red carpet last night included Zoe Saldana, who shone in an Alexander McQueen sheer gown with floral bustier detailing, model Jourdan Dunn, Will.i.am, John Boyega, footballer Leah Williamson and the the film’s male lead, Jake Sully.
And while the second Avatar movie hasn’t hit our screens yet, Sully has already confirmed that the third installment is “80-90%” shot, and they even shot a couple of scenes for Avatar 4. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonSully said, “We shot some scenes because the kids were getting older […] There are five in the saga if we are lucky enough to get it.
So, with three more Avatar previews penciled in her calendar, we can bet Winslet will likely hop on the rewear train a few more times. It’s time to place your bets on which outfits will reappear.
