The Swarovski-encrusted, barely-there Adam Selman dress that Rihanna wore to the CFDA Awards in 2014? It recalls a look worn by Diana Ross for a fashion editorial in Harper's Bazaar decades earlier.
Elton John & Cee Lo Green
The feathered look Elton wore while performing "Crocodile Rock" on The Muppet Show in 1977 was directly referenced by stylist Shawn Barton when making Cee Lo's 2011 Grammy Awards costume. "Oh my gosh, his stuff... we did so much crazy stuff for Elton," says Mackie. "He had a Dodger’s sequenced uniform that I made overnight because he was playing Dodger Stadium."
Cher & Lady Gaga
The sparkling, see-through fishnet look Cher wore bore similarities to the dress Lady Gaga wore with pasties in 2015 while attending a show at Royal Albert Hall in London.
Cher & Miley Cyrus
Worn by Cher to ride an elephant for the opening of a circus event, the feathered two-piece Mackie design was copied in nearly identical form by stylist Simone Harouche for the opening look Miley Cyrus wore during her 2014 Bangerz Tour.
Cher & Lady Gaga
Cher's look for the 1998 Academy Awards (which she says is her favorite of all time) was echoed in a Louis Vuitton Summer/Spring 2014 look Gaga wore with a soaring feathered headdress.
1991 Runway Show & Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj
When Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj showed the world their feud was over at the 2015 Video Music Awards, their ruby-hued flapper and show girl-esque costumes took a cue from Mackie's 1991 ready-to-wear collection.
Cher and Kim Kardashian West
Kardashian's 2015 Givenchy gown for the Met Gala was inspired by one Cher wore 40 years prior. “Divas at the time were dressed,” says Mackie, “but when Cher walked in? It took over the whole evening.”
Diana Ross & Britney Spears
Thirty years before Britney wore a Swarovski crystal-covered body suit for her 2003 “Toxic” video, Ross dazzled in a netted nude one worn for a club tour.
