Seeing Double: Carey Mulligan Tries the Same Dress Twice

Recycling is chic, but is recycling a red carpet dress a fashion faux pas? Carey Mulligan may be pondering that question today after she wore Roland Mouret’s “Carstone” berry red jersey dress twice in a span of two weeks.

The Shame star first stepped out in the girly frock on Jan. 6 during a party in Los Angeles, pairing the look with black peep-toe pumps. Then Thursday, Mulligan surfaced in London, this time wearing her Mouret with blue suede heels at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards.

We love the dress — and Mulligan! — and the U.K.’s Telegraph even speculates there’s a method to her manner of dress: Colin Firth’s wife, Livia, is launching her Green Carpet Challenge, asking actresses to wear eco-friendly or pre-worn gowns during awards season. According to the paper, Firth persuaded an A-list star to rule the red carpet in recycled looks, so perhaps Mulligan is her girl? Regardless, we want to know what you think of the double take. Tell us: Is it cool for an actress to re-wear a gown?

Of course it’s cool. If the rest of the world can rewear their attire, and do it quite often, why can’t the small population in/of Hollywood wear something more than once?

I love it with the blue heels, so unexpected! I think Carey has always been pretty level-headed. She does movies because she loves them, not because she gets loads of money (of course, that’s not a bad perk.) She’s always said she wants to stay true to herself and she is succeeding!
