For timeless style icons like Amal Clooney, a closet can't take any time off, even in Saint-Tropez. When the human rights lawyer was spotted on vacation, dining at Jardin Tropezina with husband George Clooney over the weekend, she was wearing a vintage Versace dress from the brand's Spring/Summer 2004 collection.

The pink chiffon mini was adorned with feminine ruffle trimming, a tiered asymmetrical skirt, and a wrapped V-neckline. Its pattern featured bold florals in orange, yellow, fuchsia, and hints of lime green. Upon closer inspection, a toile drawing of a building's brick exterior fades into the background.

Versace's 2004 S/S collection, dubbed “Diva Alert” by Donatella, was filled with bright neon colors, frilly ruffles, plunging necklines, exposed midriffs, hip-hugging silhouettes, and lots of ruching. Coincidentally, Ice Spice just wore a tangerine-toned gown from the retro collection to the BET Awards on Sunday, June 30.

Clooney paired her elevated sun dress with nude, peep-toe high heels, a small white shoulder bag, and oversized brown ombré aviator sunglasses. Her long locks were styled in appropriately beachy waves.

The lawyer is also a noted collector of vintage fashion. At last year's DVF Awards, she wore a peach lace and tulle gown from John Galliano’s Fall 2000 collection for Christian Dior. Also last year, she wore a canary yellow 1993 Versace dress and a white bridal-style slip from the Spring/Summer 1999 Christian Dior by John Galliano collection. The star has also been known to wear a vintage Dior skirt suit while speaking at the United Nations.

Some of Clooney's clothes date back decades. Over the years, she's been photographed in enviable vintage pieces including ’60s Balmain coat, a ’70s red Dior shift dress, and a black sequined gown by Yves Saint Laurent from 1981.
