Sarah Michelle Gellar Still Fits Into Her 1999 Emmys Dress

Sarah Michelle Gellar threw her own personal Emmys party this week and dressed up in one of her favourite outfits from the last 20 years.

While she didn't attend the actual ceremony -- Gellar decided to see if she could still fit into the Vera Wang dress she wore to the Emmys in 1999.

"Emmy ready ... on my couch (but excited it still fits)," Gellar wrote on Instagram.

Although Gellar was able to zip up the gown, she opted to rock a pair of fluffy slippers instead of towering stilettos.

The Buffy actress also accessorised with an Emmy award -- possibly the daytime Emmy she won back in 1995 for her role on the soap opera All My Children. 

"The year was 1999," Gellar wrote under a picture of the bright blue dress.

The big Emmys that year went to Ally McBeal, The Practice, John Lithgow (3rd Rock From The Sun), Helen Hunt (Mad About You), Dennis Franz (NYPD Blue) and Edie Falco (The Sopranos).

A fan of SMG's wrote in response that she'd recently tried to fit into her old wedding dress.

“Hmmm I doubt I could zip my wedding dress lol (although that wasn’t AS long ago)," replied Gellar, who wed Freddie Prinze Jr back in 2002.

Couture dress recycling is definitely in fashion right now -- both Padma Lakshmi and Alex Borstein dug up old dresses from their wardrobes at this year's Emmys.
