Victoria Beckham stepped out in Paris over the Bank Holiday weekend wearing Chloe high-waister jeans, Chloe wooden edges and casual v-neck grey tee with an aubergine bag from her own collection, a super chic outfit – and the same outfit she wore in Paris back in April.

Not content with recycling just one item of clothing ala K-Middy, Victoria recycled every piece of this super chic ensemble to recreate the exact same look as before. And this is not the first time Mrs Beckham has reworked an identical outfit more than once.

Back in February she wowed when leaving LAX airport in LA for her new life in London, wearing a burgundy Jill Sander dress and matching boots, which was considered a ‘new look’ fort Victoria Beckham, but she had already worn this dress and the same matching boots (of course!) in December 2012 and back in 2009 VB managed to pull off a red dress from way back in her short back, blonde and sides era in 2007.
