Who Wore Caroline Herrera Better? Emmy Rossum or Genoveva Casanova

Actress and singer Emmy Rossum first wore this Carolina Herrera grey fishtail gown to the “Costume Institute Gala” in New York during May of last year.

I really want to like this dress but I just find it a bit bland and I can’t really put my finger on it. Maybe I would just expect something a bit more at this event.

I love the earrings though and am glad she left it at this in terms of accessories.

Mexican socialite Genoveva Casanova then wore this dress to the “Telva Magazine Fashion Awards” in Madrid back in October.

I’m stilled not wowed by it but I do like the way that Genoveva’s hair falls over one shoulder.

I wish she’d worn a brighter clutch to give the look a pop of colour.

For me, Genoveva Casanova wins this because I think the gown is more event appropriate.

What do you think?

    The woman standing next to Genovena is Carolina Herrera Jr., the daughter of the designer, who is very stylish. I wish we saw more pictures of her in this website.

    Emmy’s hair goes better with the dress, I think, and her earrings are fenomenal!

    Emmy for the win, her hair up allows you to see the dresses neckline plus she looks elegant and classy, and is totally owning it.

    I love the way it hugs Emmy’s curves. She looks so sleek!

    The first thing that I noticed was Genoveva’s posture. Not good since we are supposed to be focused on how beautiful that she looked in that dress. For that reason, I had to give it Emmy.

    Definitely Genoveva. There’s a natural elegance to her.
