9 Famous People Who Deserve to Be Named Recycling Royalty
In a world where fashion is often viewed as disposable, there are some celebrities who are setting an example by wearing their favorite outfits multiple times. They don’t care about public opinion and make their favorite clothes work for them instead of letting them collect dust in the closet.
We gathered 9 celebrities who gave their favorite outfits a new life and looked amazing at big red-carpet events.
1. Kate Middleton
At the BAFTA Awards in 2023, the Princess of Wales wore a recycled gown she wore to the same ceremony in 2019.
2. Eva Mendes
The actress wore the same dress for 2 events in 2010 as part of the 5th Rome International Film Festival. She chose the long fringed gown for both a cocktail party for Last Night and the premiere of Little White Lies.
3. Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett showcased her exceptional taste by re-wearing a sparkling bodice with trousers instead of a skirt. She first appeared in it at the 2016 BAFTAs and repeated her look with variations at the 2020 Venice Fim Festival.
4. Kate Moss
Kate Moss is known for attending outings in the same little black dress.
