Who Wore Marc Jacobs Better? Anna Wintour or Kelly Chen

Anna Wintour chose this Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 ensemble to attend the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards back in June.

The editor-in-chief wore an ivory satin top with a forest green embroidered pencil skirt that has black oversized pockets with beaded details.

Anna didn’t stray too far from the runway look, adding her favourite pair of nude strappy Manolo Blahnik heels and a simple black clutch.

Her signature bob and a slick of pretty pink lipstick completed her look.

Asian singer and actress Kelly Chen wore the same look, although with a black skirt, to attend Marc Jacobs’ Hong Kong Fashion Show last week.

Kelly accessorized with a black and white polka dot Marc Jacobs hat, chic patent leather pointed-toe heels and a burgundy clutch.

She finished her look by wearing her glossy hair down and opted for kohl-rimmed eyes.

My vote is going to Kelly on this one as I adore her accessories, especially her quirky hat and sophisticated shoes. Although I love the forest green version of the skirt on Anna, I much prefer the way Kelly styled the entire look.

    Kelly, easily. It’s not difficult to be dressed better than Anna Wintour…

    i would have to disagree with most here. i think the outfit looks more natural on Anna.

    Kelly rocks this look with her cute hat plus the fit is so much better on her.

    I noticed they both shunned the peter pan collar.

    My vote absolutely goes to Anna. She exudes so much grace here. Kelly wins in the poll partially because she’s unknown to readers, so the vote is actually objective and look-based, which is what this blog advocates. But just a side comment – if anyone is familiar with the film business in Asia, they know she’s just another pretty face, almost like a car model.

    Kelly looks great. As for Anna: I have four words: mutton dressed as lamb.
