Raquel Welch has been a strong influence in the current 80’s fashion revival, as previously noted in the post Double-breasted Polka Dot Power Suit. In 1982, amidst an array of flower baskets, Raquel posed in a floor length gold lame slanted stripe evening gown paired with a gold choker. Eva Mendes wore a striking similar dress by Louis Azzaro to Cartier’s 100th Anniversary in America celebration at the Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion on April 30, 2009 in New York City. Who do you think wore the look better?
