The floor-length floral dress had long sleeves and a large cut-out in the middle which showed off the 21 Grams star’s décolletage and flat stomach.
In her picture caption, the mother-of-two explained she has been wearing the vintage piece for ‘decades’.
‘I can’t remember if it was gifted or grifted. But this is my mum’s #ozzieclark dress from 1975, and I’ve worn it for decades,’ she wrote.

Naomi was raised by her mother Myfanwy after her father Peter Watts died from an overdose in 1976.
The Mulholland Drive star was just seven-years-old when her father lost his life at the age of 31.
Back in an interview with The Guardian in 2017, Naomi said that rock band Pink Floyd stepped in to support her family after her father Peter Watts died from an overdose in 1976.
Peter was a sound engineer for the Wish You Were Here hitmakers, who helped the Watts family in the immediate aftermath of his death.

She said: ‘When he died, my dad hadn’t saved money, and I guess my mum didn’t have any. ‘So they, the band, very kindly… ‘Trust fund’ doesn’t sound right at all. I think they gave my mum a few thousand dollars to help get things under way. A lump sum, to help. It was kind that they did that.’
The actress said she burst into tears when a Pink Floyd fan gave her a photo of her father in which she could clearly see his smile for the first time in her life.
She spoke of the importance of the moment: ‘You’ve got to understand, I’ve got maybe three photos of my dad, and maybe two memories, and all of the photos of him are either out of focus or he’s a tiny speck in the background.’
The actress’ parents Myfanwy Roberts and Peter Watts had divorced when she was four.

Reflecting on her parents quirky styles, she said: ‘I’d had enough of cool. I didn’t want cool. I wanted my parents to wear three-piece suits and tweed, not leather pants and four-inch platform boots.’
The Kent-born star credits moving around a lot as a child after her father’s death- she went to nine different schools in England before emigrating to Australia at 14 – with learning how to reinvent herself.
