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 sheer gown, with its delicate ruffles and breezy asymmetry, was the final look of Jacobs' Spring 2010 collection.
