The dress drama echoes Reese Witherspoon's mini-controversy with Chanel in 2006. The actress had worn a gown that Chanel told her was vintage and never been worn before. As it turned out, both fact were wrong. Not only was the gown not vintage (it came from a 2002 collection), it had already been worn by Kirsten Dunst to a party three years earlier.
Chanel was forced to apologize for the "oversight." In Parker's case however, there has been no news about whether Nina Ricci has made a similar apology since the publicist has not responded as yet
