Double Take: Dita Von Teese Wears the Same Dress Twice

Oh yes she did! The always pin-up-perfect Dita Von Teese dared to double dip her famous curves in the same Jean Paul Gaultier gown at two events just days apart. And the burlesque diva, who first donned the haute couture creation last Wednesday night to fête the designer himself at the opening of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art, doesn’t care.

“I don’t agree that you can only wear things once,” she told while working what she called her “favorite dress in the world” again over the weekend at the MoCA gala in Los Angeles. “I think when you have something you really love, there should be nothing that stops you from enjoying it.”

A fearless fashionista, Von Teese is also financially savvy. “When a dress costs as much as a Mercedes, you want to wear it more than once,” she joked. Makes (fashion) sense to us! Tell us: What are your rules on rewearing dresses?

Vraiment classe. Cet APM e0 la cassie dans un magasin j’attendais mon tour. Devant moi de dos une femme avec de tre8s beaux collants graphiques comme sur la photo. Silhouette on va dire de femme de 30 ans. En se retournant j’ai vu qu’elle en avait 20 de plus.Mais ses collants elle les portait bien.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
