Do you remember when Renee Zellweger wore the 1950s Jean Desses strapless yellow chiffon gown to the Oscars in 2001? It was a great fashion moment and countless women have dreamed of replicating the glamour of that gown on their own personal red carpet. Well, keep dreaming! This is not the same dress, but it's close. Helena Barbieri made great debutant gowns in the 40s through early 1960s. We don't often see her dresses, but we've had a few amazing ones in the past ten years.

The Helena Barbieri gown below is a strapless draped yellow chiffon gown with a jeweled waistline of faux diamonds and pearls. What's not to love? Create your own fashion moment in this winner!
