Who Wore Matthew Williamson Better? Rihanna or Beyonce Knowles

What the…?? Rihanna and Beyonce appear to be playing tag with what they wear.

Only 2 weeks ago I featured Beyonce vs. Rihanna wearing Helmut Lang. This time Beyonce is following Rihanna wearing Matthew Williamson.

Rihanna was the first to wear this Matthew Williamson gathered leather coat as a dress when she shopped at Intermix in New York last month.

With her trademark crazy hairstyle, she wore her dress/coat with black boots, shades and reptile accessories.

Beyonce wore the same coat as a coat, when she was spotted departing London’s Heathrow airport this week.

Her look was completed with superstar shades, a Sretsis clara tiered dress, and Gucci Iman ankle strap sandals.

Sorry Bey, but Rihanna was more initiative for wearing this coat as a belted dress so she wins for me.

Net-A-Porter International have this coat on sale for £2,550/€3,045, plus you can also purchase it from the Matthew Williamson boutique located at 415 West 14th Street, New York NY 10014 (212.255.9881)

    Hi FC!
    Loving the new site design. Im not really into the jacket but what i am interested in is the cute dress that Beyonce has on inside. I believe its from Sretsis, a super cute label from Thailand that has been gathering momentum of late. Here is a Photo of Katy Perry in the same dress/top. Im in love with their whimsical designs. I would love it if you could feature them sometime.

    Can I go with neither? I’m just not a fan of that coat at all. But I give the edge to Beyonce b/c I really don’t like it as a dress.

    Oh super! Bring on the unnecessary rant from the fans! LOL
    I don’t exactly like it on either of them. But I feel inclined to give it to Rihanna since clearly put more thought into it.

    Plus, didn’t Rihanna also wear those Gucci heels, FC? I swear I saw a post on here with her in the same heels?
