BroadwayHD’s 63-year-old founder, Bonnie Comley, strutted the Tony Awards red carpet in a 40-year-old vintage sequin jumpsuit. Comley stated, “Do you like This Old Thing? I wore this to a party at Jason’s in Boston in 1982. It’s been in the back of my closet for decades.
Coming out of the pandemic seemed to be the perfect time to give it another spin. And I finally had the disco balls to put it on again!.” Comley is a Tony Nominee for Best New Play with Tracy Lett’s The Minutes.
Comley has long been an advocate of sustainable clothing. Sustainability is made up of three components: the economic, the social, and the environment otherwise, known as profit, people, and the planet. In our current mindset of reducing, reusing, and recycling, it’s no wonder that fashion icons have turned to sustainable luxury clothing and re-wearing outfits.
Vintage means high-quality value and long-lasting craftsmanship. Investing in and wearing timeless brands and wardrobe pieces can be seen everywhere from Buckingham Palace to the Oscars. Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager ask for audience votes on the recycled wardrobes.
Jane Fonda presented the 2020 Academy Award for Best Picture in a dress that she wore six years earlier at the Cannes Film Festival. Meghan Markle, Victoria Beckham, Amal Clooney, Julia Roberts, and even Beyonce have all stepped out in vintage threads. Celebrities are sharing their vintage, re-wear, and “shopping from their own closet” looks on social media.
