How Anna Wintour Styles the Same Dress for Couture Shows and Working From Home

As someone who has been working from home for two months now, I look fondly at my closet and remember all the good times I had with my dressier pieces that I'm not wearing right now. Like many of you, I've been living in sweatpants, leggings, and oversize tees—but not Anna Wintour, folks. She just proved that there's no reason not to bust out your favorite summer dress and wear it around the house. 

But Wintour didn't just select any old dress lying around—she chose one that she wore to one of the most esteemed events in the entire fashion industry: the haute couture runway shows in Paris. The moment I saw her new Instagram photo taken in her backyard, I knew the dress looked familiar. I tracked the photo down and confirmed that she wore the same dress last July in the City of Lights while attending the Valentino Haute Couture show. The only styling change she made? She swapped nude heeled sandals for brown boots. Oh, and she also added a cute golden retriever for good measure. 

Scroll down to see how Anna Wintour styled the same dress for two very different settings, and then shop similar pieces.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
