Who Wore Marchesa Better? Anne Hathaway or Katharine McPhee

Anne Hathaway looked stunning wearing a sapphire Marchesa feathered cocktail dress to the “Valentine’s Day” LA Premiere back in February.

The actress accessorized her dress with Garrard by Georgina Chapman diamond feather earrings and a Roger Viver black jewel encrusted clutch.

Katharine McPhee wore the same dress this month when she performed on ‘The CBS ‘Early Show’ in New York City.

I love how Katharine’s version is less tame than Anne’s dress and I also prefer Katharine’s strappy nude sandals, so she wins for me.

    This is a no-brainer for me.
    The bright lipstick, the ruffled feathers, the pretty sandals, the rings and gold bracelets – McPhee’s look is lighter and much more alive.

      Yes, it’s amazing comparing them together, the contrast. Anne looks sort of staid and boring and McPhee looks vital and alive. That dress looks amazing one her.

        I totally agree. At first glance I knew Katherine was the winner. She looks perfect. If she had been noticed in this she would have been nominated for BDOTW!

    Totally agree. Katharine McPhee is glowing with sassy confidence in her wilder version of the dress. Anne Hathaway looks uncomfortable in the dress. Is it slightly too small, too short ? It’s hard to put your finger on but it’s not quite right.

    As much as I don’t like Anne Hathaway’s style, I liked her in this dress better.
    For me, Katherine’s accessories and shoes are distracting.

    I thought this was a pretty tough choice- the dress looks quite different on both of them (and I think they both wore it well), but in the end I went with Anne Hathaway. I liked Katherine McPhee’s shoes a lot better, but that gold bangle is bothering me and I think the coloring works better for Anne.

    As much as I prefer the dress on McPhee, I just can’t get over those shoes.
    I am not really impressed by either look.

    Katharine should really be up for BDOTW. She’s glowing. Love the lipstick shade & her gold accessories.
