'Dancing' with Recycled Dresses

9/23/2009 1:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

New season, new contestants, same old outfit.

'Dancing' with Recycled Dresses
Swimmer Natalie Coughlin was given the same frilly blue dress for her web promo that gymnast Shawn Johnson wore on the show last year -- giving the lovely ladies something else in common other than the 2008 Olympics.

The dress could turn out to be good or bad luck: Johnson won "Dancing" last year ... but she also gained an alleged stalker.

If you've paid close attention the last couple days, you'll see lots of recycled dresses. The entire pro girls number last night was recycled dresses. And yes, that is the same dress on Shawn and Natalie. They recycle dresses all the time and it's much easier to alter something slightly than completely design and build another dress. Especially when it's just for a promo picture. Lastly, does it really matter? They look different on different people and are still freaking gorgeous.
