Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better…Melanie Doutey or Nieves Alvarez?

During the Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 presentation, Peter Dundas sent a model down the runway wearing a houndstooth crystal-embellished chiffon coat, which has hit the red carpet twice as a dress.

First up was French actress Melanie Doutey, who looked sensational wearing the coat as a plunging dress with a central slit to the ‘Therese Desqueyroux’ premiere during the Cannes Film Festival.

The sexy yet chic look was styled with a black clutch and Sergio Rossi ‘Chloris’ sandals.

Nieves Alvarez wore the same coat as a dress to the ‘Escaparate’ Magazine Awards in Seville, Spain back in October.

Her dazzling semi-sheer look was styled with Roger Vivier ankle-cuff sandals, Pandora jewels and a black Swarovski clutch.

Melanie wins for me. The Rossis swung it for me.

    Melanie Doutey for me as well, because those Rossis have to be one of the most stunning shoes ever.

    Nieves Alvarez for me. She looks flawless. The fitting, the length of the dress, everything is perfect on her. Too bad we can’t say the same thing about Melanie.
    Plus Nieves ankle-cuff sandals are truly to-die-for.

    Nieves for me. as her Smoking ROGER VIVIER sandals are way better than the Rossis!

    Nieves looks better. On Melanie the dress makes her look bigger in the midsection.

    Nieves and it’s down to the hair. Melanie’s hairstyle is way to mumsy, while Nieves’ rock chick haircut fits the dress superbly.

    Though I loved teh glittery houndstooth, the style of this dress was very tacky to me. I went with Melanie only for the shoes.

    Nieves is an obvious winner for me – the dress works much better for her height, more slender figure, and persona, she is rocking this gown. LOVE Melanie’s sandals but Nieves’s work well with the look too.
