Who Wore Lanvin Better? Gwyneth Paltrow, Chelsea Clinton, Abbie Cornish and Leslie Mann

It’s been a while since we had a 4 way on WWIB?

These four ladies have very different styles but they all fell in love with this Lanvin crushed ramie dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

Gwyneth Paltrow wore the dress first when she showed the world she could actually sing at the 2010 CMA Awards in Nashville.

Bordeaux Brian Atwood ‘Eastwood’ booties and selection of gold necklaces completed her stunning look.

Chelsea Clinton wore the same dress a month later when walked the red carpet at The Clinton Foundation’s Millennium Network Event in LA.

She opted for a more demure approach to this look adding opaque tights and Brian Atwood satin pumps.

Nearly two weeks ago Abbie Cornish donned her dress when she attended the New York Premiere of “Limitless.”

Stuart Weitzman black satin ‘Femina’ peep toe pumps, a black VBH clutch and Broken English gold jewelry to her look.

Despite this dress being worn 3 times before, that didn’t deter Leslie Mann.

Last week she added Louboutin’s to her dress whilst attending the “A Night at Sardi’s” benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association in Beverly Hills.

Gwyneth wins for me as she’s the only one to step out of the box and opt for shoes that weren’t black. I also prefer her runway version which has a deeper plunge. The other three wore the commercial version.

You can buy this Lanvin dress from Net-A-Porter US, Net-A-Porter International and Luisa via Roma.

    Gwyneth just wins.

    She’s so effortlessly chic. Others made it too uptight and try hard.

    I thought Gwyneth’s hem length worked best, too.

    I prefer Gwyneth for the same reason as yours.

    I voted for Abbie. I usually don’t allow someone’s public persona affect my judgement, but there’s something about Gwyneth that makes my skin crawl.

    I am not really that big a fan of her shoes, but I voted Gwyneth. Also, despite the fact that they are brown, I can lie to myself and believe that they are burgundy. I just felt everyone else looked old or uncomfortable and it wasn’t flattering, I prefer the plunge on her and the shorter hemline I think was necessary.
    The last time there was a four-way WWIB poll wasn’t it also Lanvin (the H&m dress)?

    Wow, even with booties on Gwyneth has legs that go on for days

    I was about to vote Gwyneth until I saw her shoes.
    I think they ruined the look, so maybe Leslie Mann is the best one?

    Aww, and I thought Chelsea would win for you since you have such a great love for tights lol.

    none of them look all that great, but Gwyneth wore it the best of them.

      I agree and I really don’t care for the dress.

  11. Naama March 22, 2011 at 13:36 #

    With emphasis on “better”, because none of them wore it good. Gwyneth’s shoes are hideous with this dress, in my opinion.

    Chelsea Clinton has no style, on Sherl Crow it’s meh and Abbie looks great but I’m gonna give it to Gwenie. It’s most profound on her.
