8 Stars Who Rewore Their Old Outfits — With Calista Flockhart Dialing It Back to 1999!

year ago

Rather than consistently opting for new, high-end designer outfits, many stars nowadays have embraced recycling and wearing their beloved garments on multiple occasions. This emerging trend brings a sense of freshness and conveys an important message concerning sustainability and the urgent need to minimize waste in fashion.

1. Calista Flockhart

Calista Flockhart rewore a stunning skirt from more than two decades ago while supporting her husband, Harrison Ford, at the Los Angeles premiere of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. The actress, 58, walked the red carpet in the same floor-sweeping skirt she wore to the 1999 Emmy Awards.

3. Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish first wore this Alexander McQueen dress to the Girls Trip premiere in 2017. She donned the dress several times after that. When she hosted SNL, at the MTV Movie Awards, at the Academy Awards, and when she appeared on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.


Haddish shared how sentimental the dress is to her. She said, “It was like, wow, I’m having these huge moments in this dress. I spent so much money, and every time I wear it, it’s like another huge moment. Maybe the next time I wear it, it’ll be at my wedding reception!”

4. Rita Moreno

Rita Moreno wore this gown to the 1962 Oscars when she won for her performance in West Side Story.

During the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015, Kate Winslet graced the event in a remarkable Badgley Mischka gown. Surprisingly, she chose to wear the same gown again in 2022 for the premiere of Avatar: The Way of the Water, boldly expressing her intention to continue repeating outfits.

By adorning themselves in garments crafted from recycled materials, these famous people elevated the concept of eco-fashion. Even members of royalty occasionally embrace the practice of re-wearing outfits.
