Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better? Corrine Bailey Rae or Estelle

Corrine Bailey Rae attended Christian Siriano’s Spring 2012 presentation which was held at The Vault during New York Fashion Week earlier this month.

She looked beautiful wearing an Alice + Olivia colour-block maxi dress with long sleeves and diagonal panels in contrasting black and grey colours.

The singer accessorized with a tan chain strap bag and a thin leather belt.

Soft makeup completed her look.

Estelle wore the same dress in a red and black colour combination when she attended the Us Weekly’s 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers of 2011 event at Penthouse in New York, a few days later.

The singer accessorized her look with a wide black leather belt, a small black clutch, a cuff bracelet and purple pointed-toe platform heels.

She also added a fun pair of gold earrings with black stones and an oversized cocktail ring to her look.

My vote is going to Estelle. I love her bold ensemble and how her red hair and lips complement the dress. I also prefer how she added fun accessories.

You can buy this colour-block Alice + Olivia dress from Bloomingdale’s in black and white or Shopbop.com in red and black.

    Corrine’s dress really needs ironing, but I much prefer the color combination and the more laidback overall attitude

    I prefer Corinne’s more casual approach to this dress. I don’t think it’s RC material.

    I don’t particularly like this dress but I prefer the red version.

    Estelle. I love how she’s working this look

    My vote also goes to Estelle. What she did here – she took a rather casual dress to another level and actually made it work – strong, bold, and figure-flattering (and wrinkle-free:))

      Well said!

    I think they both make it work for each.
