Jessica Pulls A Reese. Is this a Big Deal?

We were shocked last year when Reese showed up to the Golden Globes looking fabulous in the same Chanel dress Kirsten wore 2 years earlier. This year at the Globes Jessica Biel looked stunning in Valentino, but Hilary Swank wore the same gown a few years ago. Of the faux pas Jessica said, "It is unfortunate that I was told by Valentino no one had ever worn the gown before, but I think Hilary has amazing style, and I'm flattered we share the same taste." What do you think? Is it a big deal these girls wore the same dresses?

Personally, I don't think it's such a big deal, but if it tarnishes her image to the people who "matter", then maybe the girls should bring lawyers with them when they buy for such important events. Do they do that already?

Fashion is made to appear differently on every body. Additionally, the way you style your makeup, hair, and accessories to go with the outfit can significantly alter the outift as well.

I don't think wearing a dress that someone else wore before but the fact that people are going to compare you with the person who wore before its a little annoying b/c to my opinion I wouldn't want for everyone to have polls to see who looks better in it...

Did anyone notice that Reese looked about 15 pounds lighter than she did last year at the Golden Globes? That divorce diet will do it every time! Her waist is so high that I didn't really like that Chanel dress on her last year but this year's yellow dress was just wonderful and really showed off her lovely figure to it's fullest.

The repeats look so much better than the originals. Spesh Reese.

I don't really think it is a big deal considering the dresses are kind of classic cuts.

The bigger problem, in my opinion, is that the repeated dress is horribly boring and not very flattering -- even on a body as great as Biel's.

i voted "other" because in both instances, reese looked better then kirsten and jessica looked better then hillary. i love everything both of these gals do and they look great in everything!

I remember when this happened last year. Everyone at work (I work in fashion) was talking about it like it was a HUGE mistake. OH THE HORROR!

I'm sure Valentino's legal team told him it was ok to *lie* since the dresses weren't identical (see the straps). Overall, I don't think it's a bad thing to repeat the dress (especially since it is such a non-descript dress), but it's stinky that Valentino played it like that.

I think it's important to THEM but I don't mind or think it's a huge ordeal. I think it's bad when a designer lies and I'm not sure why they would. They probably have so many dresses for stars so reusing one is silly. I'd love to know what the protocol for outfitting stars for the Red Carpet entails. I have no idea.. do they pay for the dress? etc... Sometimes stars wear Vintage gowns which were worn by other stars. How old does it have to be for it to be reworn and called Vintage. I believe Juilia Roberts wore Vintage for her Oscar night. Jessica looked lovely, but that dress is just ok. It's a bit bland. IMHO

It so doesn't matter. What matters is that you feel good about it and Jessica was definitely strutting her stuff (as she should with the body she has).

I always thought that a lot of celebrities borrow dresses and jewelry for events like this one? Does anyone know how it works exactly?
Deba Deba 10 years
Yes it is a big deal, stars pay a lot on those dresses... If Im gonna spend $4000 in a dress better by original!

Puh-leeze. It's not like they wore it at the same time, same event. That would be awkward.

It's not that much of a disaster IMO, but it sucks that she was told that no one wore it before. She took it really well I think!

I think Jessica looks better in it. I think it's ok if the people involved are ok with it, but if a celebrity asks if someone has worn it before and they get told no when it has actually been worn before then thats not good. And pop, I like the poll :)
