Sometimes the universe lines up and miracles happen. I always feel like it is a little bit of a miracle when anything pulled by Vogue ends up being used. I don't know if you have seen any behind the scenes shots of a Vogue pull but the clothes literally can fill a large room and from the hundreds of selections only a few things make it into the shoot.

So when I sent off a box of vintage at the request of the girls over there, I was hopeful but expecting nothing. Months rolled by and then one day last week I was scrolling through Vogue.com and there it was - the 1972 Bill Blass from the shop making its appearance in the video "Beauty by the Decades" starring none other then Zendaya!

Zendaya looks spectacular in it and I can only hope that she knows that she is carrying forward the provenance of this dress. It's twin after all was already in Vogue back in 1972 - on none other then Angelica Huston.

A huge huge thank you to the entire team over at Vogue and also to Zendaya for making it looks so amazing once again.
