However, Miu Miu isn’t the only one invested in this throwback article of clothing. The sudden revival of the miniskirt was an unexpected fashion moment across the runways of Versace, Loewe, Balmain, Valentino, Celine and more. Fashion fans weren’t excited at first but they have come around to loving it. 

It’s safe to say that pulling a miniskirt off can be a challenge. While it is great for the sunny and humid weather in Singapore, one move is all it takes for a flashing disaster to occur – and no one wants that. 

But that shouldn’t stop us from partaking in this fun and sexy trend. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and draw style inspiration from the celebrities of the past and the present who made it into the miniskirt hall of fame.

We can’t talk about the miniskirt without mentioning model, actress and fashion icon Twiggy. The miniskirt actually came into existence right as her career started soaring. Her sense of style was so unique and rebellious that word spread across the world and many idolised her for it – one of her signature styles would be a miniskirt and a pair of brightly-coloured leggings.

One of the most unforgettable Oscar looks was worn by Geena Davis in 1992. The dress in question was a white ruffled minidress that was custom-made by Bill Hargate and Ruth Meyers, two outstanding costume designers in showbiz. This dress, a pair of black tights and pumps showed everyone that the mini could be classy.

Cher from Clueless, 1990s

There’s a reason why this particular outfit has been highly sought after every year during Halloween – Cher (played by Alicia Silverstone) just knows how to work it. Although she was a fictional character in a movie, she lives on as a style icon for her outlandish style and wit that has gone on to become memes and pop culture references. Of course, let’s go for an everyday look versus a costume with the Maje co-ord.

The MTV Video Music Awards have been known to be an experimental playground for artists in terms of style and showmanship. Hence, when a celeb rolls up onto the red carpet with a truly amazing outfit, the world stops, stares and cheers for the musician. Christina’s co-ord look back in 2002 is so beloved that it always surfaces whenever the award show is googled.
