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.

"All Too Well: The Short Film" star Sadie Sink practically came out of the womb a red-carpet star, and by the womb we mean the cast of "Stranger Things," which she joined around age 15. With help from stylist Molly Dickson, the actor quickly established a stylish-yet-demure aesthetic, always looking sweet and feminine without veering too cutesy. This was exemplified by her custom Miu Miu look at the 2018 Golden Globes.

I love that she didn't go for a full-length gown, opting instead for tea-length with an A-line shape (and a darling velvet bow at the waist).
