Currently promoting the series on talk shows, Dakota wore a red satin dress from John Galliano’s fall 1999 collection, courtesy of vintage purveyor Shrimpton Couture, on Monday’s episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Stylist Samantha McMillen dressed her for the occasion.

The red shade, embraced by both sisters in the same week, is currently trending in the fashion world. Valentino, Carolina Herrera, Bottega Venetta and Emilia Wickstead brought crimson pieces in their fall 2023 collection. During the 2024 awards season, Selena Gomez, Florence Pugh and Kylie Jenner are some of the stars who have brought the trend to the red carpets.
