Most people need to save money before they can go on a shopping spree. It’s another world for the celebrities. They can splurge and spend thousands of dollars on new outfits. Also, designers will often send them clothes for free, as the celebrities are always in the public eye. Many celebrities have so much influence that, fans will often buy what they are seen wearing.
So it may seem like, these people never have to wear the same outfit twice. But it’s not always like that. Celebrities are sometimes seen repeating outfits.
The public loves Helen. So it was strange when she was seen wearing her floral Dolce & Gabbana dress three times on the red carpet. She first wore it to the UK premiere of Hitchcock, then to the Jameson Empire Awards, and then at the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards. She styled it slightly differently each time though.
Keira Knightley wore a strapless baby pink Chanel dress to an awards dinner in London in 2008. She wore it again 5 years later on her wedding day. She wore the outfit for a third time in 2013 at a charity event.
We are seeing Kim Kardashian turn haute couture from a hot chick since she paired up with Kenye West. The current Kim won’t like to be seen wearing the same outfit twice. She wasn’t as sharp in 2010. She wore a black, studded Torn by Ronny Kobo three times that year.
Mindy Kaling is a talented writer and actress, most known for her role as Kelly Kapoor on The Office and Dr. Mindy Lahiri in her own show, The Mindy Project. She is a fashion icon too. Kaling always knows exactly what designer she’s wearing because she loves fashion. Surprisingly, she wore a Yves Saint Laurent LBD twice – at the Writers Guild Awards in February 2013, and then again at a fundraiser event two months later.
Catherine Zeta Jones
Actress Catherine Zeta Jones found a combination she loved, a blue Roland Mouret dress and a pair of turquoise heels. She wore the exact same pairing twice within three months.
Despite her royal status, Kate Middleton is a frequent outfit repeater, even though she’s fully aware that anything she puts on will be photographed and seen around the world.

She first wore it at the UK premiere of War Horse, then a bit more casually at a University of St. Andrews dinner, and finally at a screening of David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D.
Michelle Obama, has plenty of stylish outfits. Designers must be sending them to her, hoping that she will wear one of their creations. However, she knows what she likes, and she’s not afraid to wear it twice. The first lady is often seen wearing the same dress.
