There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In 'Great Outfits in Fashion History,' Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

The fall of 1992 was a big moment for grunge fashion. Marc Jacobs debuted his infamous Perry Ellis collection that September, while Anna Sui, too, incorporated the Seattle-based trend into her collection that season. Model/actor Milla Jovovich clearly absorbed this elevated grunge moment, embodying the look at a premiere party for the film "Chaplin" in London that December.

She casually paired a silvery lurex maxi dress with a cream, open, floor-length thick wool duster vest. The glam lurex juxtaposted against the more natural-looking nubby wool offers a lesson in unexpected texture-mixing: It works because it shouldn't. Of course, she finished it all off with a pair of Dr. Martens, for a look that would totally still work today.
