Who Wore Mugler Better… Zhang Ziyi or Rita Ora?

WWIB Zhang & Rita Ora

Zhang Ziyi sported a pristine ensemble from Mugler’s Fall 2012 collection on the red carpet back in September while attending a press conference for ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ in Beijing, China.

The petite actress let the edgy look shine by pairing the peplum-adorned dress with sky-high Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps, minimal – yet still shimmering – Cindy Chao jewelry, and a sleek hairstyle. Plus, she really emphasized her tiny waist, using the structure of the dress to her advantage.

Singer Rita Ora donned the same futuristic look back in November while posing on the red carpet for the MOBO Awards in Liverpool, England.

While Rita definitely strikes a stylish chord with her red lips and matching Sergio Rossi clutch, she falls short with her accessory choices. I find that pure white looks tend to feel more sophisticated when paired with silver, so Rita’s flashy gold bangles and Dsquared² heels seem a bit on the distracting side.

Ziyi wins this Mugler mash-up thanks to her understated accoutrements.

    Zhang Ziyi, because the length and her accessories are better. Except her shoes.

    easy this is class v trash. zhang ziyi looks fantastic in this even with the heavy shoes.

    Is it just me, or does Zhang Ziyi look like she has hooves? Those shoes are awful.

    For those dreadful pumps alone, I couldn’t vote for Zhang Ziyi :(
    And I actually prefer Rita’s gold accessories. It’s such a shame I want to attack her with cleansing wipes though.

    Readers are rebelling against the daffodile!

    I dislike Zhang’s styling and the lumpy hemline (and ugh, those shoes!), but Rita’s hair and makeup are so terrible that the rest of her better styling is ruined. Zhang wins.

    The proportion of the dress just doesn’t seem to work on Zhang Ziyi, perhaps because the waist seems so low (compared to, say, the version on the runway model). I voted for Rita Ora even though, yes, silver would’ve looked so much more elegant with the white.

    difficult decision … prefer everything on Zhang including sleek hair and soft make up BUT those daffodils are a big NO.
