Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better? Violante Placido or Tess Daly

It looks like Cheryl Cole wasn’t the only one giving us a red carpet re-run at the 2011 National Television Awards which was held at The O2 in London last week, Tess Daly did too.

Violante Placido wore this Alberta Ferretti draped silk-chiffon gown to the 2010 Venice Film Festival Opening Ceremony and “Black Swan” Premiere.

I loved the subtle gold accessories which she paired with her Resort 2011 blush gown, as they didn’t over power her look.

Unfortunately when it comes to Tess Daly, I see the clutch, the cuff and the necklace before I see her gorgeous gown.

When it comes to elegance less is more which is why Violante wins this by a very long margin.

    Tess Daly, whomever she is, has over-accessorized.

    All I can see on Tess is overbronzed skin and way too flashy jewelry for this delicate gown. Violante wears perfect accessories.

    This was a tough call for me, but then I like excessive jewelry. Ultimately, though went with Violante too.

    Yep totally agree, the accessories Tess has detract from the gorgeous dress. Plus the way Violante stands in the dress is very becoming.

      I agree. Tess looks very forced. The dress is shut down for all by Violante. THAT is how you were Alberta Ferretti.
