Celebrity Double Take: Carey Mulligan Rewears Her Lanvin Look

There are a few things we know Carey Mulligan loves on a red carpet: Black and white. Funky jackets. And a bold statement shoe.

And apparently she found an outfit that meets all those criteria so well, she wanted to wear it again before the month was out!

Mulligan first wore this Lanvin suit (featuring an off-white tuxedo jacket, silk pants and a matching top) and Christian Louboutin “Miyousra” heels at a Good Morning America appearance on May 1.

Then she tossed it into her carry-on (kidding! She probably got it dry-cleaned first!) to wear to a Cannes event this week. She repeated the look right down to the shoes and minimal makeup — in fact, we almost didn’t believe it was a new photo until we noticed she’d changed up her hairstyle.

The star is no stranger to recycling her red carpet fashion, but in the past she’s usually added a new element to shake the look up a bit. But we kind of love that she’s so attached to this outfit, she couldn’t help but break it out again within a few weeks.

Tell us: Do you like that Mulligan reused the same outfit? Or do you think fancy red carpets should get brand-new looks?

*Gasp* You mean she’s a normal human being who likes something in her closet so much, she wanted to wear it a second time?

It’s a lovely outfit and she looks great. No reason to wear something different every day.

Jocelyn on

If I traveled as much as she did, I’d pack light too.

Me on

is this article for real?

tanya on

O’God no the same outfit, whatever will we do?

aitchcs on

No I think it is great and wish more celebs would wear the same outfit more than once. Kate Middleton does!

Jane on

Wow, just like the rest of us meer mortals who have to repeat outfits. Pretty suit, silly question.

Andi on

Makes me like her more. Same with Kate Middleton. There is something appealing human about re-wearing a favorite piece.

bob on

she is a girl who looks like she’s 45. not b/c of sophistication, but rather some disease causing her to age.

I love the person below who asked if this article was for real – because seriously, why is this a story? How shallow can People be to even ask the question if this is a faux pas or not? She looks great and I’m sure the clothes are clean, so who cares?
