She knows what suits her! Dame Joan Collins, 81, wears her favourite dress for dinner at celeb hotspot Craig's

Perhaps her style motto is: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Because on Monday, Dame Joan Collins proved she isn't above repeating an outfit when she was seen wearing her favourite black and white peplum dress for a dinner at celeb hotspot Craig's restaurant in Los Angeles.

For her outing, the 81-year-old actress chose to recycle her go-to frock, which she has been photographed wearing on numerous occasions.

Collins looked ravishing in the black long sleeve that featured white lines criss crossing throughout the design.

She kept warm with a long leather overcoat over her shoulders with her arms staying beside her waist letting the sleeves hang loose.

The Dynasty star added a pop of color with a bold red lip and wore a pair of black and white high heels to match her knee-length ensemble.

The British beauty is certainly not afraid of wearing the same dress twice or even thrice.

Within one calendar year, she has re-worn the same black and white design to different events.

Most recently, the brunette beauty donned the eye-catching number at the NBCUniversal 2015 Winter TCA on January 15 while promoting her upcoming E! scripted series The Royals.

Also in April at the Women's Guild Cedar Sinai Spring Luncheon, Joan wore the same exact getup as the Craig's dinner.

Even in a recycled outfit, Joan stole the fashion spotlight from actress Melanie Griffith who was also seen leaving the celeb favorite eatery.
