Natasha Richardson's Dress Deja Vu

01/25/2007 at 10:45 AM ET

At this week’s NYC premiere of hubby Liam Neeson’s new film Seraphim Falls, Natasha Richardson looked beautiful and elegant — and more than a little bit familiar. Not only had she worn her J. Mendel fur-trimmed frock to the premiere of her mother’s film Venus back in December, but she even accesorized it the same way with strappy heels and a soft updo. At the Venus premiere, Richardson told PEOPLE of her dress, “[Designer Gilles Mendel] came up with this fabulous dress for The White Countess premiere, and he sent me a great dress for the Dreamgirls premiere, so I went and bought this.” We think Natasha looked great both times, and why not wear a dress to events twice — especially if you paid for it? So, tell us: What do you think? Should more stars wear their dresses again to events?

See our weekly I Really Love My… gallery for pieces that the stars love to wear again, and again.

There’s no excuse to wear fur. Period. Shame on her.

True, fur is gross, but wearing the same thing twice is fine by me. For the average person, it’s pretty unrealistic to wear something only once, and with the number of events people like Natasha Richardson have to go to, trying to keep track of all their outfits gets a little excesive. If it looks good, I’m all for wearing it again.

Though I don’t really think fur ever looks good.

RIGHT ON CAROLE! Is that real fur? It looks real, if so SHAME on her. Ya, I like to wear my clothing more than once, I don’t own any disposable clothing. But I do wear something different everytime I go to a event, party or get together with friends and/or family. So I think if I owned a simmilar, way less expensive dress, minus the fur, I would have worn it several times, but only once to an event or at least with a totally different hairdo (like down) and with different jewellery that would have been a bit more fun! But whatever floats her boat, the thing that really bothers me is the fur! A sheer ruffle in the same material as the top part of the dress would have looked way nicer anyway! Or a coloured ruffle for a little flare, whatever, just no real fur lady! C’mon.

Definitly. Cute dress. I would surely wear it a couple of times!!

Please don’t tell me that’s fur at the bottom of her dress! She shouldn’t be wearing fur anyway. Stepping down from my pedestal, the dress is not that attractive, the length is not a good one for her and it’s a little to much going on with the sheer and the fur at the same time. It’s plain old not fashionable, the fact that she wore it again confirms her as a Tacky dresser.

I would never wear fur, unless it’s was fake. But as for wearing a dress 2 times? Why not! It’s crazy that these actresses can’t wear the same thing twice. My little black dress was well worth all the time I’ve worn it and just changed bags and shoes…

Love the dress, hate the fur (both from an aesthetic and environmental viewpoint). And I agree with Stephanie, if you love a dress, why not wear it a few times to different events? It’s not like wearing the same thing to the Oscars two years in a row.

The fur is sad but why not wear a dress you love more than once to different events. It’s silly to think you can’t wear an article of clothing you paid for more than once!

j on

the fur is AWFUL.
i think stars should wear their dresses more than once, but i can understand why they don’t. if i was constantly being photographed, i wouldn’t want to be seen in the same thing twice. probably.

Mrs.Borrego on

Seriously I think the dress would look much better if it didn’t have the fur trim in the bottom. It would look much more classier. As for wearing a same outfit twice to events I think that it is fine. But if I were a celebrity and had the money I probably wouldn’t wear the same outfit twice.
