Natasha Richardson's Dress Deja Vu

01/25/2007 at 10:45 AM ET

At this week’s NYC premiere of hubby Liam Neeson’s new film Seraphim Falls, Natasha Richardson looked beautiful and elegant — and more than a little bit familiar. Not only had she worn her J. Mendel fur-trimmed frock to the premiere of her mother’s film Venus back in December, but she even accesorized it the same way with strappy heels and a soft updo. At the Venus premiere, Richardson told PEOPLE of her dress, “[Designer Gilles Mendel] came up with this fabulous dress for The White Countess premiere, and he sent me a great dress for the Dreamgirls premiere, so I went and bought this.” We think Natasha looked great both times, and why not wear a dress to events twice — especially if you paid for it? So, tell us: What do you think? Should more stars wear their dresses again to events?

See our weekly I Really Love My… gallery for pieces that the stars love to wear again, and again.

Animals have a gift humans do not have, they can detect things in nature and help save human lifes. Yes it is very important for us to care about animals. I don’t believe in eating and using all the animals for human pleasure!!

I agree with Kristen, Anonymous and Daniela . Some of you anti-fur people are just too unrealistic for me.

Anyway, the dress would be prettier without the fur b/c it detracts for the true beauty of the dress. And I’m sure she could have chosen a different dress if she wanted to, but she didn’t, and she doesn’t have to. It’s already paid for anyway.

Good for her wearing the same thing!! Why is it news when celebrities wear clothes more than once? It’s only bad if they’re wearing the same outfit two days in a row. If it weren’t for magazines i doubt anyone would even NOTICE that she wore that before. She looks great!! But I do think that the fur part of the dress is ugly…but that’s just because i dont like wearing furry things!!

P.S. Someone has to speak for the animals because they don’t have a voice!!! Maybe we can learn something special from them!!

People should care about ALL causes. and animals causes are so important in this world. We tend to have such arrogance as humans, thinking we know best. Well look at our problem ridden world and then look at the animal world. Do they have war, drugs, sexual abuse and other crimes, hate, prejudice, corruption, poverty and pollution(only the polution we created). NO, they live in a harmony I wish we people will live in someday. Have a little respect for animals and the world around you. We could learn a lot from the animal world.
As I have said on another post, animals eat other animals(ie; circle of life, nutrition). Wearing animal fur is sensless cruelty solely for vanity (unless you are living off the land). We all need food, we don’t need fur coats. Being a vegetarian is a personal choice. It is important to not lump everything into one category and be able to see the clear distinctions. Food and vanity fur are completely different. One can choose to eat animals, since animals eat animals, but not to wear fur which was ripped off a tortured and eventually killed helpless little creature just to look like J-Lo. And if you found that part hard to read then imagine what it felt like. Compassion and empathy; important emotions to have!

Love the dress, love the fur, would absolutely wear it. Would never wear fake fur, by the way.

OH MY GOSH! Who would ever think to wear something more than once!! Gag me! That is so stupid! IF it looks good and you like it wear it as many times as you want! This rule also goes for if you wear the same thing as someone else in celeb world. Its a compliment!

daniela, anon, kristen, abc123:
your ignorance re fur FLOORS me. have you never had a pet?! maybe educate yourselves a little bit, visit peta’s website or pic up other literature on the subject. i’m no freak about it, but i DO have a heart for other living things. i’d choose animals over nasty people like you any day of the week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
