Who Wore Julien Macdonald Better…Kate Beckinsale or Taylor Swift?

Who Wore Julien Macdonald Better Kate Beckinsale or Taylor Swift

For the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar party, Kate Beckinsale wore a gorgeous Julien Macdonald black, long sleeve sequin embellished dress with a sheer back and sheer sleeves which glimmered from every angle.

Styled with a black clutch and a signature high ponytail, she was the picture of glamour and perfection.

Cut to 2014 and Taylor Swift wore the same dress to the same event taking it up a level with the ruby lips and ring, however, Kate wins for me, for allowing the gown to speak for itself.

    That fully dressed,impeccable make-up, purse-carrying thing out of the gym has always bothered the crap out of me with Taylor.

    That entire production, with paparazzi waiting, is the very definition of try-hard to me. I find that child so in-authentic.

      Unfortunately, I have to agree. I like that she goes for it all the way….more people should try more style-wise. but it feels VERY inauthentic.

      Kate has samey style alot yup. but she wins all the way. It suits her better, without question. shes had alot more practice with fashion of course. As would be expected.

    What an embarrassment for Taylor Swift and her stylist Joseph Cassell.

    Taylor would not like wearing something someone else wore, especially at the same event; girlfriend travels with bodyguards everywhere (Robert Pattinson only does for promo tours and talk shows) and wears runway leaving the f-kg gym.

    Kate hands down. It looked better on her skin, That’s red lip and makeup aged her in my opinion. Kate’s makeup looks amazing, her skin was glowing.

      I also thought Taylor look too old in that gown.

    Just as a matter of principal, it’s never Taylor. Her clothes are always perfect, but the way she wears them seems soulless.

      That’s quite cruel and snarky

    It’s always Kate.
