Hollywood’s Best Kept Secret: Costumes That Have Been Reused In Multiple Films
Have you ever been watching a TV show or movie and thought something looked familiar? You should trust your gut because some production studios actually reuse costumes from another production. It’s a cheap and easy way for costume designers to dress a character.
Some studios took the phrase “don’t fix what ain’t broke” to heart, reusing costumes from previous films and television shows.
A Lime Green Coat In Gossip Girl & The Carrie Diaries
This particular costume is hard to forget, considering it is literally lime green. Apparently, The CW didn’t think fans of their young adult dramas would notice, though, since they used the same coat for Blair in Gossip Girl and Carrie in The Carrie Diaries.
The only difference is the big “C” pin on Carrie’s lapel. Either way, the lime green coat made its way from fashionista to fashionista, making it a staple in the New York-based television series.
