Who Wore Balmain Better? Rihanna or Alex Curran

We saw many look from looks from Rihanna during Paris Fashion Week back in October.

On her way to Balmain’s Spring 2010 presentation she was spotted wearing a Balmain ensemble which included a blazer, lace bustier and satin harem pants.

This ensemble looks like it was made for Rihanna, given that she channels “edgy chic” so well.

I like the way that Rihanna has worn her trousers higher and gone without a belt, which the harem pants don’t need.

WAG Alex Curran wore the same look earlier this month to the “Cricket’s Christmas Party” in Liverpool.

How does she always manage to turn everything she wears from Chic to Cheap?

The black lace just looks tacky on her.

The fake tan doesn’t do her any favours either.

Alex was quoted in the January 2010 edition of UK Vogue saying Balmain’s prices are “absolutely ridiculous”.

Funny then that this was the second Balmain look she’d worn in that same week.

For me this is a clear Rihanna victory.

    Neither … The pant sits too high on Rihanna which makes her looks a lot shorter and well, second with you about Alex Curran, TACKY.

    Alex also has a seam running up the middle of her lace top, making it look like she has just pulled up a pair of tights really high (perhaps she was saving money from buying the Balmain corset?).

    I prefer Alex.. it flatters her more… the higher pants makes Rihanna look shorter and bigger than she actually is. I also prefer Alex’s choice of shoes better..

    Balmain does not suit Alex at all, she always seems to look like a fashion victim!!!

    These are not harem pants. Harem pants are loose and flowy at the waist and the ankle.
    They’re jodhpur pants which are loose at the waist but taper knee down or near the ankle.

    I prefer Rihanna too.

    It’s hard to be Rihanna – even in a fugly outfit like this she looks amazing. Too many trends in one look: blegh!
