Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola has come out to decry the stigma associated with celebrities repeating outfits. According to her, fashion is not disposable and celebrities should be allowed to wear what they like more than once.
In her words:
“I recycle my outfits once in a while; especially the ones I am comfortable with. I like the outfits that I wear, so I don’t mind repeating them once in a while. In fact, I have a pair of sandals that I particularly like; they match with most things. And, why not? Why should celebrities not be able to repeat or wear stuff they like?”
“Why is it that when I wear my favourite outfit twice, it’s circled, zoomed in and runs with an unkind caption like ‘fashion offender’ or `she cannot afford it’; what bullshit. I can afford it, but maybe this is my favourite pair of jeans and I want to wear it three times. It’s cool to repeat outfits and I am going to do it.”
“I repeat my outfits all the time. I hate the fact that people believe that singers and actresses should not repeat clothes. As a woman who loves fashion, there are certain things in my closet that I can’t live without and I wear them over again and again because they make me feel a certain way. I just don’t view fashion in a disposable way.”
