Anne Curtis and Dua Lipa are even twinning with the exact same one!

Back in the aughts, everyone's closets were filled with velour tracksuits, low-waisted bottoms, and platform slippers. Two decades later, it seems like style cues from that era are going through a renaissance.

The latest piece of clothing to flutter its way back to our wardrobes? The butterfly top. The slinky, oftentimes embellished piece first had everyone smitten when it was strapped around the bod of one Mariah Carey. Crafted by French designer Emanuel Ungaro, the popstar wore the top to the VH1 Divas Live concert in 2000, teamed with low-waisted jeans and her version of Rachel Green's signature haircut. Since then, stylistas have been copping the flamboyant piece for themselves, wearing it everywhere from the streets to the stage.

There's no denying just how enviable the charming litte garment is. To further inspire you to get a butterfly bodice for yourself, listed down below are a couple of celebs who've been giving them a 2020s remix.

And speaking of jeans, Dua also has the noughties-inspired piece in denim, which, naturally, pairs well with even more denim. We also love how she continued the butterfly theme with her chunky silver belt.
