Melissa Joan Hart Has Been Wearing This Dress for More Than 20 Years

“The eagle dress has landed,” Hart’s caption began. She then explained the history of the dress that “has decorated my always changing shape for 21 years now.” Hart first bought the dress in Melbourne, Australia, in 2000, and wore it for an appearance on The Late Show With Jay Leno after 9/11 when, she says, she dressed in red, white, and blue for most of the year. “It became a July 4th staple in my Tahoe closet in about 2008 and I have since worn it every year,” she wrote in the caption (except 2019, when she was on the East Coast).
