The dress is from the designer’s 1983 collection and features many staple design elements of the decade. It’s made of a dark coral snakeskin print that is covered in lightly glimmering sequins. The dress also features sharp, angular shoulders for a distinctly ’80s feel.

She paired the dress with $US190 Yeezy velvet booties for a modern edge.
