Elle Fanning was the first to wear a dress from Marchesa’s exquisitely designed Spring 2011 collection to the 17th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Tribute Event back in October.

The adorable actress looked picture perfect in an all-white version of the dress and managed to accomplish looking both age appropriate and stylish. Elle kept her long blonde hair down and straight and added a slick of plum-coloured lipstick.

This look would have been flawless had it not been for one small error – her shoes.

Elle chose a pair of black ankle strap heels and for me, they just don’t coordinate well with such a pretty dress. Despite this, there’s no denying how lovely she looks on the red carpet.

Earlier this month, Olivia Palermo wore the same dress to the Couple of the Year 2011 event in Hamburg, Germany.

Accompanied by her beau Johannes Huebl, Olivia spiced up her look with pearl earrings, sparkling jewels, an embellished Club Monaco clutch plus a striking pair of red and black satin heels.

Olivia is a red carpet professional and knows exactly how to work this look.

Her hair and makeup are impeccable and I love how her bright red nail polish matches her shoes and adds even more glamour to her sophisticated and romantic outfit.

This one was close because both Elle and Olivia look so beautiful, but Olivia pulls ahead with her standout accessories. Her stunning pair of shoes almost steals the show.
