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.

I don’t agree with the fur but I see absolutely nothing wrong with celebrities wearing the same outfit more than once. Especially if they paid for it and it wasn’t just given to them by the designer. However, because of her celebrity status, I wouldn’t have worn it so soon after wearing it the first time.

Get over the fur thing. You know ya’ll all have leather shoes! Its the same thing. Why don’t you start hating on these stars for their leather boots?

But good for her for wearing the dress again. Its a waste to only ever wear something once.

Why do people care so much about fur?? Not to offend anyone, but it’s just animals… I hope everyone that complained about fur is a vegetarian because you can’t just pick and choose when you care and when you don’t. I don’t own any fur and never would, but I think there are a lot better causes out there than the treatment of animals.

I dont like the fur,it look’s stupid but the upper half is okay. As far as wearing a dress twice, i’m all for it, they should after how much they spend on them.

Fur-hating hypocrits! You should care more about the 7 year old Indonesian kid who made that pair of sneakers you’re wearing than some animal bred solely for their pelts. She looks fabulous and the dress is gorgeous. I think it’s refreshing for a Hollywood star to wear something more than once. It makes her more relatable to the general population.

Assuming the fur is faux, I think it gives a nice winter look to this dress. Perhaps a little heavy at the bottom — it weights her down a bit — but still, a nice seasonal look. Otherwise, the dress would look like just any other dress…
I say wear it till it wears out!

I agree, who cares about the fur. I agree with Kristin and the vegetarian comment. Regardless, that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. I think it’s dumb to buy something every day and wear it only once. Yeah we all do it for a special occasion or party once in awhile and that makes sense. Besides, it’s more enjoyment for me to get to see all the cool dresses at every awards show.

to answer the original question, which was should stars wear the dress more than once (not should they wear fur…) i think YES, they should start re-wearing dresses! Even the stars must think its a bit of a waste to buy an expensive, beautiful dress and only wear it for a few hours.

I personally wouldn’t wear fur but I’m not going to sit around and bash people that do or go throw blood on them or whatever else PETA does.
Anyway, I would wear the same dress twice if it was for event that didn’t have all the same guests. Or just get a simple dress that can be accessoried a few different ways.

This is a really cute dress and it looks great on her. Why not wear something more than once? It always seems so wasteful to wear something just one time. Love the shoes too!
