Who Wore Vanessa Bruno Better? Rachel Bilson or Hilary Duff

Rachel Bilson was spotted out in Santa Monica back in February in this perfectly styled outfit featuring a coral crepe Vanessa Bruno jacket with structured shoulders.

She displayed her sartorial skills by pairing the jacket with a pretty draped nude dress, Maison Martin Margiela open-toe boots, Pamela Love ‘Quartz Tribal’ necklace, Ray Ban shades and a quilted Chanel bag.

A half-up, half-down style completed her look.

Exactly 4 months later Hilary Duff wore the same jacket whilst out shopping in LA.

She went for a more casual approach by pairing the jacket with denim cut-offs à la Britney Spears, a slashed white tank top and white pointed heels.

She accessorized with Victoria Beckham’s ‘Audrey’ oval frame sunglasses in forest green, a cream quilted Chanel bag and an Hermés ‘Bearn’ leather wallet.

For me, there’s no competition here and Rachel is definitely getting my vote.

I love her chic outfit and the perfect accessories she added to this look.

I think the sophisticated qualities of the jacket are lost in Hilary’s outfit and a standout piece such as this definitely deserves better shoes.

    I am hating Rachel’s shoes too actually, but the rest of the ensemble is much better so she wins for me

    I can’t pick
    but I love the blazer with “V” plunging tee-shirts!

    Same I hate the shoes too so I had to give to Hilary Duff. They would be fine as long as they weren’t open-toe boots then it would be an amazing outift.

    Is Rachel pregnant? If not, that skirt is not doing her any favors.

    Both horrid, I’m afraid.

    Hilary’s denims are just tacky

    I really wanted to like Hilary’s take but white pumps? No.

    hilary’s look comes across much more effortless and unexpected which always gets my vote.

    @Moxie, it looks like wind is blowing up her skirt.

    Hilary just looks ridiculous. I am so ready for this trend to go away. What’s next, bikini’s and blazers to dinner?

    I love Hilary’s look!

    Rachel wins, no doubt.
    Hilary’s outfit is AWFUL! She probably looked at herself in a mirror through Victoria Beckham’s sunglasses and saw a perfectly styled look instead (I bet she didn’t even notice that her top was showing from under the shorts). Beware of VB’s sunglasses!

    It’s not her top that’s showing, it’s the pockets from the cut off jeans. Anyway I picked Hilary even though I hate the she didn’t cut her pockets out when she cut off her jeans, I just hate Rachel’s shoes so…

  16. serenissima July 12, 2011 at 19:10 #

    @Nat39: her top isnt showing. those are the pockets of the shorts… theyre cutoffs

    I hate Rachel’s shoes with a passion but everything else is spot on.
    I can’t even begin to understand why Hilary picked those cut-offs for that vest.
