Some looks just never go out of style, especially many of the timeless outfits worn by Rachel Green, Monica Gellar, and Phoebe Buffay on Friends. In fact, one of these get-ups was so good that Jennifer Aniston just had to have it for herself — and it wasn’t even her own look. On June 12, Aniston took to her Instagram story to show off her new haircut in a photo with hair stylist Chris McMillan, and she just happens to be wearing a now-infamous dress from Friends.

In her next Instagram story, Aniston shared screenshots of her Friends co-star Courteney Cox in the same black floral-and-lace dress, which her character Monica first wore in an episode of the show. “Does the dress look familiar?” she wrote, complete with a side-eye emoji. “Still got it!”

In October 2019, Aniston told Bustle that one of her favorite go-to looks was this exact dress that she took from Cox’s wardrobe archive after the series concluded in 2004. “I still have a dress that I still wear to this day that I stole from Monica’s closet,” she said at the time. “It’s darker with yellow mini, teeny flowers. It’s got a little lace here and lace here [points to her waist] and a cap sleeve, cut on the bias to here [points to her legs]. I wore it two weeks ago. I love it.”

Before the Friends reunion premiered on HBO Max in May 2021, the cast of Friends told People which items they stole from the set, and Aniston admitted to copping that dress from Cox. “I still have it to this day, I still wear it and it fits,” she explained. When Cox quipped that the dress has probably gone “in and out of style four times,” her co-star and real-life friend was quick to defend her sartorial choice. “It will always be in style,” she responded.
