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.

Abc 123,

Your views make a lot of sense to me too. You are so right that we must look at our own lives before passing jugement, I know it is something I will always continue to work at. I really appreciate being able to have a calm debate about this. It’s so tiresome when it has to get rude. I enjoy when people have different points of view because I end up learning a lot. I am passionate about my beliefs, but I really want to constantly keep growing as a person and continue to be open minded. I fully respect that you were not only speaking to me but to a lot of people. I am grateful for what I learnt from everything you shared.

Thanks and take care

One last little point I wanted to make on this subject. I don’t mean to be pushy or to harp at all I just really wanted to share this thought and I love writing!

I really believe that despite some bumps in the road, over time we could manage to completely eradicate the fur industry. I really think we could do quite well without it. But if the entire world became vegan or vegetarian it would be disasterous in terms of the economy and employment, the intense environmental consequences, the strain on agriculture and non animal based industries and the likelihood of massive malnourishment. That is fundamentally why I feel fur is so different from food. Fur is cruelly unnecessary and unnecessarily cruel and there are great faux alternatives. There really is no alternative choice for the food industry that wouldn’t wreak complete havoc. That’s why I believe in fully using the alternatives that are available and then pushing for more ethical treatment of animals in the food industry.

I won’t get into the debate about fur. I have my opinions, but I’m keeping them to myself.

I love the dress. The shear top is beautiful. I like the fur (I hope it’s fake). The shoes are wonderful. Of course I think more celebrities should wear their clothes more than once. Would it be a fashion crime if I did it? Certainly I’m not famous, but how are they different from me or more better or important? The hype around these celebs is ridiculous. More celebs should be able to wear their dresses, shirts, pants, shoes or whatever 2, 3, 4, 5 times over again. I think it’s ridiculous to get scutinized (sp?) for wearing a dress a second time. I could care least if she wore the dress a 3rd time. That doesn’t make her any less of a human being.
