Back in August, Zoe Saldana wore this gorgeous Balmain Resort 2012 dress to the ‘Colombiana’ Miami premiere, but we were on the fence about the additional train.
The dress is so hot and sexy on its own that we wished she’d opted for the lookbook version.
Well, in the space of twenty days, two Victoria’s Secret models have worn this gold-embellished Balmain mini dress as it was presented.
Joan Smalls wore it to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party at Dream Downtown in New York City earlier this month.
She teamed her dress with silver Alexander Wang Fall 2011 accessories including an Adriel clutch and Fabiana metallic leather sandals.
Usually mixing metals sends a shiver down my spine, but there are enough silver elements in her dress to make this combo work.
Alessandra Ambrosio wore the same dress to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show viewing party which took place in New York City last night.
She accessorized with tame nude slingbacks and a tan Valentino clutch.
Joan wins for me.
Her accessories are far more interesting. Zoe lost points for the train and black sandals, whilst Alessandra lost major points for her uninspiring accessories.
