Elizabeth Hurley recreates iconic Versace safety pin dress look 25 years after Four Weddings red carpet with Hugh Grant
Hurley made headlines for the black iconic pin dress she wore to the 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' London premiere, considered one of the sexiest red carpet dresses ever worn
Elizabeth Hurley is ageless, and her recent photoshoot proves it. After about 25 years, Elizabeth Hurley, the stunning British model and actress, recently proved she hasn't aged in the slightest since she first wore the iconic plunging black Versace safety pin dress in 1994.
Hurley rose to fame after her first modeling job for Estée Lauder at the age of 29. She was the company's representative and model for their products, especially perfumes. Hurley is also known for her roles in films like 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery' and 'Bedazzled.' And in 2015, the actress starred in E!'s original series 'The Royals.'
Hurley made headlines for the black iconic safety pin dress she wore to the 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' London premiere. It is still considered one of the sexiest red carpet dresses that were ever worn. Hurley was accompanying her then-boyfriend Hugh Grant who starred in the movie. Recently, in a magazine shoot for Harper's Bazaar, Hurley recreated the look and she looked as stunning as she did 25 years ago.
During her interview with Harper's Bazaar, Hurley revealed the story behind the gown. "I was so unprepared for what happened that night. I urgently needed to find a dress to wear for Hugh’s premiere, and in those days, I had no idea about fashion. I remember going to an office where they literally fished a dress out of a white plastic bag. I took it home and did my own hair and makeup, fighting Hugh for the mirror, which wasn’t even full-length, in our tiny one-bedroom flat. It was all very unglamorous compared to how things get done these days," Hurley said.
She looks back on the moment "Like a time revisited with affection. Back then I didn’t think too deeply about anything. I followed my jobs with a Samsonite suitcase, shoot to shoot, movie to movie." Hurley said her stunning ageless figure comes almost naturally to her. "I don’t exercise, but I am very active. But just because it still fits, doesn’t mean I would wear it today - it wouldn’t be appropriate!"
