The spaghetti-strap slip dress will likely always evoke a very specific aspect of the '90s aesthetic, but as it turns out, what's old, as they say, can become new again. At the launch event for UNICEF's Project Lion, a campaign that aims to advocate for children in India, Sienna Miller made the throwback silhouette feel surprisingly fresh. By choosing an unexpected hue (a warm, sunny gold) and pairing it with minimalist accessories (a slouchy, peach, oversize clutch and a simple pendant necklace), Miller kept the look from verging anywhere near stale.

The gown was designed by her sister, Savannah, and though that sunflower-colored version doesn't appear to be available online, Galvan makes a similar piece that comes in equally appealing sea glass, crimson or fuchsia shades and is currently retailing for between $536 to $875.

It's also worth taking a moment to acknowledge the worthy cause Miller showed up to support: Conceptualized by Miller's friends, Purvi and Harsh Padia, Project Lion's mission is to improve the lives hundreds of thousands of children. "Being a parent, and imagining the conditions and the poverty that many of the children are living with in the world, it seems insane to not do everything you can to support initiatives like this," said Miller in an interview with Vogue.
