There once was a time when wearing the same thing twice was a major fashion faux pas.
But thanks to Anna Wintour who is likely to wear a Prada or Oscar de la Renta dress twice or thrice in quick secession, much like Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, those rules no longer apply.
Despite that, I was surprised to see stylist Caroline Sieber wearing the same Chanel dress within two weeks.
Sporting a black-and-white rose and feather-accented fascinator, she attended Royal Ascot in England wearing her Chanel dress with Louis Vuitton toe-cap pumps and a grey Chanel bag.
She gave the dress a second run out this week when she attended the Chanel Fall 2012 Couture show during Paris Fashion Week.
Keeping the sunshine off her fair skin, she opted for a sun hat on this occasion.
A nude clutch and matching suede ankle-strap peep-toes accessorized her look.
With the jewelled detail around the neckline of her dress, I’m surprised she opted to wear a necklace with this dress.
I much prefer the first look. The sun hat and nude heels don’t work at all for me. I’m quite disappointed by the second look to be honest.
