“Unlike the classic black tux, a lace dress is a very unique piece to pull off twice. Which is why Cate Blanchett’s my favourite. Not only did I like her in the Armani Privé gown she wore at the Golden Globes in 2014, the fact that she chose to repeat it again [at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018] made me like the second outing all the more.”

“Kate Middleton’s custom-made Alexander McQueen gown that she wore to a state dinner in Malaysia back in 2012 was recycled this year at the BAFTAs. Keeping up with the dress code of the awards this year to promote sustainable fashion, I loved that she lived up to the spirit of the occasion and switched up this formal gown with a Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace.”

“Elizabeth Banks wore a Badgley Mischka red dress twice at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, first in 2004 and then in 2020. And her take on it was: ‘It’s gorgeous and it fits…so why not wear it again?’ I feel that this attitude is a game changer because all we need to ask ourselves is ‘why not?’”

“Jennifer Lopez’s appearance at the 2000 Grammys in the green palm print dress is so iconic that the print has constantly been reimagined by Donatella Versace and always stays relevant. While the video of JLo walking on the ramp in a new version of the dress at Milan Fashion Week went viral last year, Versace recently posted on social media that Lopez had worn the same dress once again in 2001, the second time on Saturday Night Live on TV.”

“I loved that Joaquin Phoenix wore the same Stella McCartney tux to all award shows this year. Phoenix showed how you start small and look at the bigger picture, as we are each making a difference in our own way, and these small good initiatives will have a domino effect.”
