DressGate: Walters Explains Fashion Hat Trick, Cries Recessionista!

On Monday morning, we were the first to point out Barbara Walters‘ political and style taboos by wearing the same outfit — a quaint black dress with garish embellishments — at two high-profile events in a week. And both in the presence of the First Lady Michelle Obama.

Well, things always come in threes and when Barbara Walters hit the red-carpet Monday night for an event at Lincoln Center, take a guess what she wore?

Barbara took to her platform The View this morning to confront the media frenzy surrounding her sartorial selection.

“So beit” Walters said, “the cha-cha in me, I wore the same dress again last night!”

“We’ve got a bad economy. What, I’m going to buy a new dress for every [occasion]?”

Check out the clip above.

Co-host Sherri Shepherd even chimed, saying “we are in a reccession, you are doing your part.”

No word, though, on whether or not the dress was washed!
