Sandra Lee's Vintage Ball Look Is Turning Heads On Instagram

Sandra Lee stunned fans with a recent Instagram post in which she sports an incredibly tailored and detailed vintage gown. Sharing in a selfie, she captioned the image, "So Last night I got to go to THE BALL in Couture Vintage Bob Mackie, Gold peekaboo jimmy choo stilettos, Oscar de la Renta clutch, Rare Christian Dior Ruby & Art Glass Necklace. Prettiest dress in the world-thank you so so much BOB MACKIE! Love u so xoxo1d" (via Instagram).

Considering the TV personality name-dropped a veritable whirlwind of top-level designers in her post, it's safe to say this look wasn't semi-homemade.

As fan mrs.kj1999 commented, "Move over Cinderella... Aunt Sandy is coming for you!" Lee's outfit is a fitted full-length dress with long sleeves and a plunging neckline perfect to show off that Dior necklace. The dress is made from fabric highly adorned with ornate circular details in shades of gold, and features a tasteful slit down the middle.

Instagram commenter rsmuoio perhaps described this look best, writing "Bob Mackie has hands of gold." Mackie, who got his start in 1961, has been a highly sought-after designer for decades (via Bob Mackie). His unique, theatrical designs have been worn by the likes of Cher, Carol Burnett, and Liza Minelli, and would make anyone stand out in a crowd. This designer's career has spanned so many decades that some of his vintage looks are especially hard to find — so this is quite the win for celebrity chef Lee.

Fittingly, lifestyle legend Lee has made a career from repurposing items and giving them a fantastic new life, so a vintage look is right on target with her brand. Lee, who came from very humble beginnings, has been famously quoted on her appreciation of the finer things. As the cook and lifestyle designer once shared with Vogue, "My audience knows me, and I wear beautiful clothes as a badge of honor. They remember where I came from."
