One of her most iconic dresses was designed by the Tunisian fashion designer Azzedine Alaia which was made out of red leather and featured a zipper down the front. It was very revealing, so if you want to recreate this look you will need to be comfortable with bearing lots of flesh. I have had no luck in finding a dress like this one.
However, Tina was a big fan of red fringe dresses which I remember her wearing, and you can easily create an authentic look using a red flapper dress,
