If you’re looking to repurpose an old dress that’s currently in a ball in the very back corner of your closet, take a page out of Eva Longoria’s sartorial notebook and just wear the thing backwards.
The actress recently revealed on Instagram that when she walked the red carpet in Cannes in 2005, her very first time ever attending the prestigious international film festival, she did it with her dress on the wrong way.
Here’s the garment in question:
Do you remember this long-sleeved mini with the whimsical yellow flower appliques that Longoria wore back then? The deep-V in the front was totally on trend at the time, and the star had no problem pulling off the risque cut. But the truth is it meant to expose her back, not her front!
“Flashback to my first year in Cannes 12 years ago! I look like a baby! Fun fact: I had my dress on backward 🙈 Yep. Backwards and didn’t know it!!!!”
Regardless, she still managed to pull off the dress even though it was completely facing the wrong way. Not to mention, she’s been praised by fans for getting honest about her hilarious fashion mishap.
Honesty truly is the best policy, even if it comes some 12 years later.
