Independence Day is tomorrow, and patriotic style is flourishing. For this week's throwback, we're resurrecting the "Flag Dress" from Catherine Malandrino's Fall 2001 collection. Time and again, this style has popped up on multiple celebrities, including Halle Berry in 2001, Meryl Streep in 2009 and Katy Perry just last year (pre-John Mayer break up, as we can see in the photo).

The silk-chiffon dress gained popularity for its timeliness. 2001 was the year of 9/11, after all, and stars and stripes could be seen everywhere as a sign of solidarity. In 2008, Malandrino celebrated her ten-year anniversary by re-issuing the flag dress, winning even more A-list fans. Plus, the design made the cover of her Assouline-published book

See how the stars, and the designer herself, wore their USA pride, below. Happy 4th of July!
