If anyone can bring back peplum detail, it’s Sidney Sweeney. The “Euphoria” actor revived the divisive fashion trend at the August 13 HCA TV Awards in a vintage Mugler minidress with flared material gathered at the waist. Originally designed in 1981, the green velvet number featured a plunging deep-V neckline, a corseted bodice, a high-low peplum, a thick belt and off-the-shoulder puff sleeves that hit just above her elbows. It comes with pointed horns on both the front and back shoulders, a detail that has earned it the nickname “vampire dress”.
Sweeney worked with celebrity stylist Molly Dixon to select the archival dress, plucking it from New York Vintage after researching the options. Sweeney accessorized with two large rings, drop earrings, a necklace and bracelet with black and silver Jimmy Choo pumps and diamond jewelry by De Beers. To finish, nail artist Zola Gonzorigot gave the star a gorgeous side-French-tip manicure that matched the forest-green color of her dress.
At the HCA TV Awards, Sweeney walked the red carpet solo and reunited with her “The White Lotus” costar and onscreen mom Connie Britton, who wore a Reem Acre gown for the occasion. Their HBO show and its cast won a total of five awards during the ceremony, leading Sweeney to take the stage and show off every angle of her corsetry.
Sweeney’s muggle moment is the latest example of her willingness to experiment with fashion. Earlier this summer, she attended the MTV Movie & TV Awards in a low-rise, sequin-covered Miu Miu skirt and cropped white button-up top, while she embraced a voluminous-train gown with a Tory Burch twist at the 2022 Met. the cheek For a “Euphoria” reunion event in April, Sweeney exuded sophistication in a sheer paneled Alexander McQueen suit.
