Sometimes we get a chance to wear a look all over again whether it was previously ours or not. That’s really how clothing is supposed to work. It’s a never ending cycling of reusing, reworking, and recreating. The theme of this year’s The MEGA Ball might have been Glam Rock, but that doesn’t mean it was the only theme going on during the night. In the official invites, we challenged our guests to get creative and recreate some of their best looks from the past.
Some came in a mismatch of previously worn looks, a few chose to recreate outfits sustainably, and others decided to wear outfits from equally iconic personalities. We loved seeing everyone’s creative come to life especially these five celebrities who understood the assignment in this year’s The MEGA Ball.
