Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Victoria Beckham or Anne Hathaway


For this edition of Who Wore it Better? I’m taking it to the streets.

In my Best Of 2008 posts, I gave Victoria Beckham the Best Sidewalk Style Award, because the sidewalk is her catwalk, and no one can out do her when it comes to shopping in 6″ heels and Balenciaga dresses to go shopping at The Grove.

This was evident when she breezed through Heathrow airport back in November.

Not one to wear tights and ruin an ensemble whilst it was raining in London -see why I love her- Victoria wore her taupe Stella McCartney Felt military coat, with a matching taupe Hermes bag, brown hat, and Christian Louboutin Arielle Ankle Boots.

Anna Hathaway was spotted in New York wearing the same coat in a creamy beige colour, when she made her way to The Early Show in New York on Monday.

Like Victoria, Anne wore her coat with celebrity shades, and unbuckled but tied at the waist.

As much as I am crushing on Anne at the moment, and as much as she looks fabulous giving Victoria a run for her money in her playground. I have to give this to VB.

The coat, the hat, the bag all compliment each other perfectly, plus she doesn’t have a stylist putting her together, so she deserves more credit.


You can buy the taupe Stella McCartney coat Victoria is wearing from the international Net-A-Porter site for £1,175/€1,570.

    I know what you mean about the stylist, but I have to commend Anne for not trying to fight it on her own. The point is to step out looking the best you can, even if it’s off of someone else’s style/fashion sense. I don’t have the best fashion sense and intend to hire a stylist as soon as I can afford one. lol. That said, it is a hard choice as they both look great. But I have to give it to VB, she is just soooo FIERCE! untouchable!!

    Victoria’s skinny orange legs are revolting. She is so not high fashion. She’s breast impants and fake fanner.

    anne all thw way, it looks more causual on her, than it does on victoria. plus her legs just look terrible boney chicken legs that look like they have been over tanned.

    i do find it funny that she dpoesnt have a stylisy, because she always looks far too over styled for every occasion.

    i was going to vote for anne, fc, but your words swayed me. on first glance i said anne all the way–i would wear my coat like that rather than how victoria weared it (because it would probably look better on me with less accessories). but you’re right, vb does rock this look with her ankle boots, and amazing accessories. she’s so good at putting together thebest outfits to wear day to day. and yes, she doesn’t not have a stylist. so commendable.

    i just hope her red carpet style takes a turn for the better.

    I Love ankle boots with legs showing off but not when it looks totally inappropriate for the weather around!
    Anne looks great and like she’s comfortable with it, so…Yay for Anne!

    As anonymous said, showing of a little leg is very nice, except when you look like you have a. nothing under, and b. your tan doesn’t flatter the color of the coat and vise-versa.
    As much as I think that Victoria has been very elegant lately, I personally hate when she wears coats, she ends up looking to …trashy…
    So I have to give it to Anne.
