Don’t Be Afraid to Re-Rock! Waje, Kate Middleton & Kim Kardashian Aren’t

Published

 on

With the global financial meltdown and many economies around the world struggling, it’s clear that now is the time to be moneywise.

Whenever Nigerian celebrities, socialites or stylistas show up at events in clothing by high street brands or retailers that are considered “cheap”, the venom is instant -“OMG is she wearing Primark? – cringe!” Let’s not talk about when people “re-rock”, in some cases, BN has featured photos from different events which took place on the same day, therefore celebs who attended both events technically wore the same outfit twice, you can only imagine the comments….

BN takes a look at recent celeb “re-rockers” and in our books, it’s definitely ok to re-rock!

Check on it.

Tips for Re-Rocking

  • One key to re-rocking twice as nice is getting the right accessoires. I am pretty sure you love those black pumps because they go perfectly with your LBD and clutch, but why not give your dress a pop of color by opting for red shoes, red lipstick and a red clutch/hand bag – your friends might notice you are wearing the same outfit but even if they don’t tell you, they know you are rocking nicely in style with the pop of color red. Another key factor is getting the right jewelry.
  • Don’t be afraid to try a new hair do – If you always go for long weaves, try opting for a short hair do. This way, the center of attention is not that your bright sunny yellow flower dress but your stylish new do. Be inspired by Victoria Beckham and Michelle Williams, who went from long to short.
  • A Blazer can do the Magic – If you love that plain white T and it seems you wear it almost all the time with that your white skirt, why not buy a black blazer to wear with it and some tights as well. Accessorize with a different color of bag like pink and don’t wear the pumps you wear all the time, try wedges.
  • Be confident! Every one will notice that you love your dress. If they sense that you think you look good and feel good, not only about what you are wearing but also about yourself, they are sure to love what you’re wearing and yep, always smile – shh! it works like magic.
  • You can get as many tips as possible but one key to always looking as good with an outfit you’ve worn before is working with what fits your style, be it just a little here and some little there, you’ll come out looking good.
Goodluck with your re-rocking!

Even before her highly globally viewed wedding to Prince William on Saturday 29th April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing outfits more than twice, even better than before. Just recently, Kate was seen in these stunning pink £1200 Emilia Wickstead dress on Friday 18th May 2012 during a reception in the Waterloo Chamber in Windsor, England. Just 11 days later, Kate wore the outfit once again at the Buckingham Palace Garden party, this time she gave the dress a more glam look by accessorizing with a pink Jane Corbett hat, nude LK Bennett Sledge heels and a glittering clutch bag.

Well if she can wear an outfit more than once, then anyone can. She is the editor-in-chief of the almighty American Vogue and month after month through the globally accepted glossy magazine, she dictates what she thinks women around the world should wear. We are talking about no other than, 62 year old fashion icon –  Anna Wintour, who is definitely a re-rock fan.

Anna was first spotted in this Balenciaga frock at the screening of The Whistleblower at the Tribeca Grand Hotel on Wednesday 27th July 2011 in New York City with her signature glasses and bob hair do. Then on Thursday 8th September 2011, Anna wore the same frock  at the Dolce & Gabbana celebration during Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. When we all thought we have seen the last of Anna in the dress, she again wore the same dress, this time with a different colour of the lower part of the dress, to a Vogue party on Thursday 22nd September 2011 in Milan, Italy. Yet again, Anna wore the dress to the Balenciaga ready-to-wear show during Paris Fashion Week on Thursday 29th September 2011 in Paris.

Anna Wintour

Another re-rock fan is the First Lady of the United States of America – Michelle Obama. She has been seen in this Tracy Feith dress at least twice. Once for the National Prayer Service in January 2009 and another time she hosted the Farm-To-Table Lunch for spouses of World Leaders in September 2010.

Michelle Obama

Who would think, the highest paid American reality star Kim Kardashian loves to don her outfits more than once? On three different occasions, Kim was seen in this Kardashian Kollection “Myne” dress, which according to her, is her favorite travel dress. At the Philadelphia International Airport on Friday 27th July 2012, Kim was seen with her boyfriend Kanye West in the dress, looking simple with a gold belt, black birkin bag and sandals. Just before then, Kim gave the dress a more glamorous look at a photo shoot for her fragrance in August 2011 by accessorizing with a leather rope belt, gold necklace and cuffs and Sam Edelman chocolate sandals. Just after her trip with her family to the Dominican Republic, Kim arrived in the US, in the same dress. She wore the dress with a Chanel fringe bag and Guiseppe Zannoti Sandals.

Kim Kardashian

Who said this BN re-rock list is strictly for girls? Dapper celebrity men are also fans of re-rocking, one of which is American rap star Kanye West. He was first spotted in France at the Vivienne Westwood Paris Fashion Week Presentation in this leopard Givenchy bomber jacket on Friday 4th March 2011, less than a year later, Kanye  appeared at the 106 & Park Studio in New York City on Monday 9th April 2012 in the same jacket.

Now let’s come down to our very own country. At the TW Phoenix Gala red carpet, top Nigerian beauty entrepreneur Tara Fela-Durotoye dazzled all in this Tiffany Amber “Lily Wrap” dress, she accessorized her look with black pumps and diamond jewelry. Then on Saturday 28th April 2012, Tara re-rocked the outfit once again for Cakes by Tosan’s Ultimate Luxury Exhibition and Brand Re-Launch at the Civic Centre, Lagos. This time, Tara accessorized her outfit with gold heels, diamond jewelry and sleek up do, which gave her a more youthful look. Which of Tara’s looks, do you like best?

Tara Fela-Durotoye

She is one Nigeria’s most loved sonorous singers and also a red carpet style star, who brings glamour at every occasion. On Sunday 25th March 2012, our BN cam spotted superstar singer Waje at the 2012 maiden edition of the LPM Health & Beauty in L’Espace, Lagos in this red Mango jumpsuit, she accessorized her outfit with a blue belt, red bag, drop down colorful earrings and black flats. Showing all that she can re-rock her outfit twice as nice, Waje donned the same jumpsuit on Thursday 12th April 2012 at the exclusive launch of Google + at the GET Arena, Lagos. This time, she accessorized her outfit with orange and white bangles, a black belt and chose to let her hair down. She was also wearing the same earring and bag as the other event. Which of Waje’s looks, do you think, work best for her?

    I want to ask a question- So, u mean dat once u become a celebrity, u cant/wont’ wear the same dress twice? i am just asking ooooo. because u mentioned Michelle wore the same dress in 2010 and then again in 2011 likewise the others and i got was wondering wat the re-rock defines?

    • funke

      August 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

      You took it right out of my mouth. I don’t see anything wrong in wearing ur clothes more than once even if you were a celebrity. This post ain’t necessary to me oooo.

    • OmogeNaija

      August 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

      Same here Onyin, I don’t get it, can’t a celebrity repeat a dress! Gosh, we are soo frivolous, there are children practically dying of hunger

      You’re clearly missing the point. The very first paragraph talks about how people make negative comments simply because a celeb wore an outfit more than once aka re-rock. BN’s saying, ain’t nothing wrong with that, and showed examples…

    Thank you BN for this post. I have been told few times by few of these celebrities that it is a form of social/fashion suicide to wear what you have worn before all over again and it really makes me wonder why I’ll buy very expensive clothing and accessories and won’t be able to re-rock them. Well their comment is to their pocket because I re-rock many times. I just realise why they never have anything once the hard times hit and rather have to depend on men who are chief re-rockers. Very nice write-up

    The point of this article, I am yet to get. Who are the ones that say you cant wear, a dress twice. Why is anyone paying them any attention, and giving them a rebuttal, saying you can. You just ingore such people, because they are numptyheads. I have come across such articles elsewhere, and I’m thinking to myself, what the hell. Who takes such people seriously. You cant wear a dress twice, and so. A dress of £1200, should only be worn once? Anyone who thinks like that needs to have their heds examined. The people that are mentioning someone wearing a dress twice, go check their wardrobes, to see if they have 365 items. Mschew. Abeg BN, dont join the movement abeg, you guys stand out already. Dont become common. P.S – Putting Kim Kardashian in the same article as the Duchess of Cambridge, Michelle Obama, Tara fela Durotoye and Anna Wintour is disrespectful. I dont know who Waje is, I’m afraind, so I cant comment. These women are well respected, and they represent poise, grace, elegance and class. Those are not words you can ever use to describe Kim abeg.

      Na wa o Aunty Sade… What has Kim Kardashian done to you? Face your life, let her face hers. Whether we like it or not, whether she has been married 10 times or not, when are we talking fashion, Kim K is a major major force to be reckoned with. So let’s focus on the discussion at hand here – fashion – and leave the judgemental bits out of it. Thanks.

    BN please get the dates right, William and Kate got married 2011 not 2012. There are some calender malfunctions in your article too.
    @ Sade-Kim is human so don’t say she should not be put in the same article with Michelle and the rest, what makes the others so special? their husbands or their lineage? I Don’t think so.
    A big AMEN to re-rocking.

    • Sade

      August 14, 2012 at 3:14 pm

      You must be one of those fans, who have no clue about what dignity, poise, grace, elegance and self respect means. I’m sure to you, it must be all hail Queen Kim. As veeva said, the word Trash comes to mins

      August 15, 2012 at 11:44 am

      @ Sade, i’m one of those that neva rili liked Kim but i’ve got to give it up to the chick cos she is smart. It takes a smart person to turn shame to fame and i’m sure if she had spent her time reading -ve comments, she would be dead by now. Also, its cos u r beefing dats y she is still famous 🙂

    August 14, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    As a celebrity, the point is u shouldn’t wear a dress twice on a red carpet jor, it doesn’t make sense, if it was long when u first wore it try cutting it short the next time, seeing pictures of u in two different occasions doesn’t make sense.. Bella thanks for this post…

  18. Theodora

    August 14, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    August 14, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    Chai. The day has come when i will read about something that is okay to do, and kim kardashian is used as one of the examples. Kim Kardashian of all people, nothing she does is what pointing out that hey she does it, so,its ok too if you do it. Like she is worthy of emulation, in any way, or you should feel good about yourself for re-rocking because kim kardashian re-rocks too. Shaking my head seriously. Especially as some of these examples are of women that may not directly pay for these expensive clothes. BN, if you had come up with an article with pics of everyday women, who can re-rock their clothes, e.g, wearing the same jacket with a pencil skirt, and next with a pair of jeans to make it casual, or a pair of pants, or rocking one top many different ways, or how you can translate an office wear, from day to night, in case you have to go out straight from work. Something from regualr women, who wear, averagely priced clothes, and dress themselves and not an army of stylists, that would just have ben great. Kate’s example of a £1200 dress, I mean, seriously!!!!. I’m sure even your team at BN, could have put up an editorial with pics of women in laogs, re-rocking their clothes. BN, lets be real, biko.

      Can I ask what your IQ is, because what she wrote was pretty straight forward. Ok, let me explain it to you, very well, as it seems like you are a bit slow. The examples BN put up, are not relatable. They should have put pictures of regular everyday women you see on the streets of Lagos, Abuja, London, New York, you name it, and not celebrities. A picture of hymn, lets say someone who may work in your office, and two or 3 pictures, of her re-rocking some items, something along those lines. Kapish. I swear, its just english, not geometry. Common sense doesn’t seem to be so common these days, and anyone with access to technology doesn’t automatically mean you are smart.

      i think you absolutely missed the point of this post. this post is directed to people who believe they shouldn’t wear the same outfit twice and the celebrities were just used to empasise the point, the post was basically saying that if a celebrity who is under scrutiny can re-rock, why shouldn’t an everyday person do it too.

    Oh puhleazzzze. You people are not celebrities so you don’t count, we know y’all wear the same shirt twice in one week and nobody gives a hoot, that’s because nobody truly sends you.
    We’re talking about celebrities, and because they get photographed regularly (planned or unplanned), it is usually a big deal (as most BN commenters know) when they’re photographed in the same outfit twice. So I do not think this article is unnecessary at all. If you don’t think it is necessary, just move on and don’t bother wasting one more second of your life commenting on an “unnecessary post”.
    BTW, BN doesn’t have to do a “real” post all the time, variety is the spice of life, and while we get some “regular” stuff, we also want to see what the stars are doing too, so I truly can’t fault their choice of topic. Well done BN!

    i think the title should be nicely re-rocked. Anyone that is afraid to re-rock obviously is confused on the difference between hyperconsumption and wealth. lets cut the crap and stop supporting behavior that gets us nowhere in the long run. Over-rock whatever it is, after all it wasnt free, you spent your money to purchase it.

If you dont like her, pls just pass wen u see any post on her, dont follow her programme on E!, may be when you do, she will become less popular and “broke”….cos all the hate only makes her work harder in anything she does and make more money,…did i mention that the hate also makes her famous?….oh yes, it does

    @ Sade
    I agree with you, high five.
    So, tired of the obsession with Kim K, it’s ludicrous. I mean all the women listed there are known for their talent and position, they got there with dignity and much class. My point is, I see her in every American blog, sure don’t want to come here and see her face again. That woman has nothing going for her except her look and she’s getting away with too much, she’s celebrated like she’s some type of talent, what a shame. It just shows how society is going downhill. I hope her fame vanishes in the air just like how it happened for Paris Hilton, ASAP.

    I don’t understand why one cannot get bang for one’s buck by re-rocking an outfit as many times as one desires! Are celebs supposed to bin their $10k Givenchy or Elie Saab frocks just cos they’ve been photographed in it before? Sounds ridiculous to me. I hate fashion snobs abeg. My thought is wear it till the threads all fall off or the prints disappear. You shouldn’t have a problem if you style it differently or spruce it up by wearing to-die-for accessories. I have a playsuit that can do different things that you won’t believe. No way am I giving it up (Just remembered that I’m not a celeb 🙁 but still….)

    No big deal rocking your outfit as many times as you want. It shouldn’t even be a discussion because all these ladies who don’t wear the same outfit are wasting their money. Most of them are in a lot of debt trying to keep up with all these celebrity styles. And, a lot of celebrities wear these outfit by designers to help them promote it or rent it, so emptying your credit cards trying to emulate these women is not a smart move. You are losing out.

    Speaking of Kim K, I will have to agree with some of the comments, she’s so overrated and doesn’t deserve to be on the same list with powerful classy women. I’m convinced, her looks being an exotic white/Arab woman is turning everybody heads crazy. And I believe most women especially black/African women wish they look like her since skin and hair is what African women envy about white women. The funny thing is, some African women praise her than they even praise influential African women. I see them styling their weaves/wigs like her, it’s just pathetic.

    The whole re-rocking thingy is the norm rather the exception for us common folk. On the other hand (and I have no particularly strong opinion on this), it is noteworthy for celebs to re-rock their red carpet outfits because most of them (well, the A-listers) get those outfits for FREE!

    A couple of years ago, a well known fashion PR person and I were discussing fashion icons and she ventured to say that in her opinion, anybody who repeats items of clothing doesn’t have style. I was shocked to say the least. Since then, I’ve had a friend, a former beauty queen who told me that she was adviced when she got crowned, not to EVER repeat Any item of clothing. And that is why you find a lot of ‘celebrities’ incuring debt to look good. I’m a fashion retailer so believe that I know what I’m saying.
    In my opinion, and like I said to the fashion PR girl, true style means that you can take one skirt and work it effortlessly into ten different outfits. If you can’t interprete an item of clothing into many different looks, then you don’t have style, you just have money.

    i think dis is a simple case of “mis communication”. BN should have stated d topic as “re-rocking for celebs is ok” cos seriously, everybody “re-RE- RE- ROCKS?

    Waje’s second best dress worked best for her though, somehow, the curves were better accentuated

    As long as it has not faded or torn, why not?
    I can rock a dress that looks good on me as many times as possible.

    I recently did a post on repeat offender… Don’t see where it is written that one can’t repeat an outfit… I love how Kim K styled hers with different accessories and looks!!!
