Victoria Beckham
She’s still got it! For a 2018 British Vogue cover shoot honoring the 10th anniversary of her brand, Victoria Beckham celebrated her most iconic fashion looks — including the latex catsuit she first slipped into for the Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There” music video in 1996.

Geri Halliwell
Beckham isn’t the only Spice Girl paying homage to the classics. In 2012, Geri Halliwell collaborated on a clothing line with British retailer Next. The centerpiece of the collection was a reimagined version of the Union Jack dress Halliwell wore for the 1997 BRIT Awards, giving fans everywhere the chance to spice up their lives.

Twenty-eight years after she first rocked the boat with her “If I Could Turn Back Time” music video, Cher made audiences believe she really could turn back time, recreating her memorable fishnet ensemble for a performance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

No one winks at her own legacy quite like Madonna. On her 2012 MDNA Tour, the Queen of Pop took the stage in an updated version of her iconic cone bra by designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who was also responsible for the provocative original she debuted in 1990.

Rita Moreno
EGOT winner Rita Moreno was the talk of the red carpet at the 2018 Academy Awards. The Once Upon a Time star attended the ceremony in the same gown she wore in 1962, the year she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in West Side Story. “It’s been hanging in my closet and I go and stroke it now and then,” Moreno told People TV.

Britney Spears
Nineteen years after making a pleated plaid skirt too cool for school, Britney Spears recreated her “...Baby One More Time” look in an Instagram video in 2017. All she was missing was a set of pigtail braids.

Kim Kardashian West
She’s got a tendency to go all out for Halloween, but Kim Kardashian West outdid herself in 2015 when she dressed as...Kim Kardashian West. Specifically, the reality TV star, then pregnant with her second child, recreated her famous Met Gala look from 2013, at which point she’d been pregnant with her first.

Jennifer Lopez
For a free hometown concert in the Bronx in 2014, Jennifer Lopez threw it back to one of the most iconic red carpet outfits of all time — the green Versace dress she wore to the Grammys in 2000. The leotard version looked a little more suited for dancing, but that plunging neckline remained intact.

Alicia Silverstone
As if Alicia Silverstone would miss an opportunity to pay tribute to her iconic role in 1995’s Clueless. Performing on Lip Sync Battle in 2018, Silverstone evoked the memory of her fashionista character in a plaid pleated skirt and matching blazer.

Reese Witherspoon
For the 15th anniversary of Legally Blonde in 2016, Reese Witherspoon flawlessly resurrected Elle Woods — and reminded the world that orange was still not the new pink — when she modeled her old costumes in a series of Instagram posts and Snapchat videos. The rules of fashion are simple and finite!
