Naomi Campbell is forever a Chanel girlie.

The supermodel proved that when she walked the red carpet for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15 wearing a Chanel dress that she first modeled in 1996. The black sequin dress — part of the late Karl Lagerfeld's 1997 fall/winter high fashion collection for the house — originally went down the runway more than two decades ago but looks just as good (if not better) today.

Campbell, 53, who was styled by image architect Law Roach (who also accompanied her on the red carpet in Chanel), rocked the dress a bit differently in 2024 than she did in 1996. In the '90s, the sheer panels didn't get all their glory, as Campbell wore a slip under the garment. Now, however, she went with a power move of showing off her black thong underneath the dress and totally skipped the slip.

Her hair for the runway show was also dramatically slicked back, while her hair in Cannes was loose and in brushed-out curls.

More recently, Campbell stomped the runway at Paris Fashion Week in January. She closed the Balmain men's show (as the only woman to walk the show, might we add) in an eye-catching gold headpiece that ran vertically down her face, along with a large sculptural piece positioned on the front of her body. The golden ornament, which appeared to connect to a belt around her waist, featured a bouquet of metallic flowers held by a pair of hands.

Her outfit, designed by creative director Olivier Rousteing, was the epitome of luxury: black pants, a tan top with a plunging neckline and an oversize camel colored coat draped over her shoulders.
