Who Wore Valentino Better…Keira Knightley or Yao Chen?

Who Wore Valentino Better Keira Knightley or Yao Chen

Keira Knightley looked stunning wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 gown to the ‘Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World’ LA Film Festival premiere back in June last year.

The British actress never lets us down when it comes to red carpet dressing, and we were totally in awe of how she made the red Chanel floral metal headband work without it feeling too costumey.

Yao Chen’s motto was “anything Keira can do, I can do better”.

Sadly this wasn’t the case for me. Her red shoulder bag, while complementing the look colour-wise, still felt very out of place for such a delicate gown. I also felt the gown had lost much of its allure the second time around.

It was like someone trying to cover a Michael Jackson song: a feat like this can only be achieved to perfection once.

Keira wins by a country mile.

    I agree completely, especially love the Michael Jackson analogy. I also didn’t think Yao’s shoes were a good choice with this look. Keira was perfect!

    Keira looked so enchanting, she wins for me too.

      +1 it was just a perfect look for her and she knew how to style it.

    The headpiece was perfect from Kiera. Nothing can beat that look

    Yes, I felt that this dress was perfect for Kiera and should just have been left alone by anyone else. Why try to go there?

    Perhaps it’s me, or a weird angle, but I think Keira looks pregnant on this picture, in this dress XD That’s why I voted for Yao XP
