Who Wore Balmain Better…Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham?

Who Wore Balmain Better Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham

For the Vogue Foundation Gala back in July, Kim Kardashian wore a Balmain Fall 2014 military-style look consisting of a woven top and leopard-print skirt. She has since gone on to wear the brand on several occasions.

Having seen Victoria Beckham wearing the same skirt earlier this week, it’s become apparent that Kim has shortened hers.

Victoria opted to keep her look much simpler, shunning the military aspects of the collection and styling her look with black accessories and of course her trademark shades.

For some reason I think this might be a close contest in the poll, but for me there is only one winner – VB.

Who Wore Christopher Kane Better…Diane Kruger or Lara Stone?

Who Wore Christopher Kane Better Diane Kruger or Lara Stone

Diane Kruger wore a Christopher Kane Pre-Fall 2014 dress with silver and cyan molecules cut from mesh and mirror appliqués which she styled with nude pumps while attending a press conference for ‘The Bridge’ back in July.

Lara Stone opted for the pink and silver version while taking to the red carpet with husband David Walliams earlier this month for the GQ Awards.

While Lara’s look was effortlessly styled with black peep-toes and a black clutch, I like Diane’s unexpected choice of nude on this occasion so she wins for me.

Who Wore Wes Gordon Better…Lindsay Ellingson or Ashley Madekwe?

Who Wore Wes Gordon Better Lindsay Ellingson or Ashley Madekwe

Lindsay Ellingson attended ‘The Giver’ New York premiere wearing a nude Wes Gordon Spring 2014 halter dress accented with yellow lace inserts at the sides.

We were slightly disappointed in the styling and execution of this look, then up stepped Ashley Madekwe who brought this look to life while attending the Variety And Women In Film Emmy Nominee Celebration.

Adding gold jewels and a gold clutch plus nude Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, this was an easy win for the British trend setter.

Who Wore Chloé Better…Clémence Poésy or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Who Wore Chloe Better Clémence Poésy or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Clémence Poésy attended the launch of Chloé’s new perfume ‘Love Story’ in Paris, France back in July wearing a Chloe Fall 2014 pretty abstract-print and lace-accented frock.

The look couldn’t have been more in tune with her elegant, chic Parisian style, accessorized with a Chloé clutch and dual-colour sandals.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley followed in Clémence’s footsteps, making this look her own and winterizing the look while attending a ModelCo natural skincare launch in Sydney, Australia by adding suede Jimmy Choo burgundy-hued boots, with her favourite Chloé ‘Clare’ bag and stylish shades rounding out her look.

This is another pairing I found really hard to select a favourite from as both styled it so very well.

In the end I picked Rosie. Maybe out of favouritism but mostly because, as a fellow tall gal, I can now picture myself in this look too.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better…Shailene Woodley or Jenny McCarthy?

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better Shailene Woodley or Jenny McCarthy

Shailene Woodley attended the London premiere of ‘Divergent’ back in March wearing a Stella McCartney capri-blue gown featuring an open back and traced with delicate lace which she styled with a gold armlet and necklace.

Jenny McCarthy wore the same gown recently to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, adding bold statement earrings and a matching diamante clutch.

Jenny’s gorgeous curves certainly fill out this gown, but I love the youthful flair Shailene brings to this frock.

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better…Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Sarah Jessica Parker

Five style setters have been sending us a strong signal: ponchos will be big this fall.

Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse donned their monogrammed Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 poncho immediately after walking the show in February. Suki wrapped her around her moss-green Burberry coat.

Olivia Palermo wore her monogrammed poncho on a photo shoot in New York in July with a checked shirt and chestnut-coloured skort styled with over-the-knee Stuart Weitzman boots, Westward Leaning shades and a CH Carolina Herrera Casati bag.

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted wearing hers just last week over causal separates while doing the school run.

I really love SJP’s effortless styling, however, the chic appeal of Suki’s look won me over.

Who Wore Roksanda Better…Lizzy Caplan or Mel B?

Who Wore Roksanda Better Lizzy Caplan or Mel B

Lizzy Caplan showcased her style on the red carpet of Showtime’s ‘Masters Of Sex’ Season 2 Summer TCA press tour event back in July wearing a Roksanda Spring 2014 ensemble, with my eyes instantly going to her tri-colour skirt and, of course, those electric-blue Brian Atwood ‘Besame’ pumps.

Mel B, not known so much for her great choices on the red carpet, surprised me when she made this look her own a few weeks later for the ‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 9 post-show red carpet event, styling the skirt with a strapless top, with ‘Nudist’ sandals rounding out her look.

Even though this was a case of much improved for Mel, the fit of the skirt was a tad snug; regardless, this was an easy win for Lizzy and her consistent, effortless style.

Who Wore Michael Kors Better…Kristen Wiig or Sandy Powell

Who Wore Michael Kors Better Kristen Wiig or Sandy Powell

Back in December, Kristen Wiig attended the ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ New York screening wearing a mannish look from Michael Kors’ Resort 2015 collection consisting of a leg-of-mutton white shirt, black trousers and an oversized black bow, which she styled with teal Louboutin pumps.

Just last week c took on the same look while attending the Venice Film Festival, making this look her own by styling it with gingham trousers and wooden platform shoes.

Sadly, I couldn’t get over the shoes matching her hair colour, so Kristen wins for me.

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better…Maggie Gyllenhaal or Olivia Palermo?

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better Maggie Gyllenhaal or Olivia Palermo

Back in May, Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the New Museum Artist Dinner hosted by Burberry wearing a look from the British brand’s Fall 2014 collection.

The loose-fit keyhole hand-printed dress was matched with a rare punchy pink lip, patterned pumps and a gold clutch.

There was nothing rare about Olivia Palermo’s styling when she gave the look a second spin while attending the Chadstone’s Icons Of Style campaign event in Australia last month.

Adding the runway printed scarf, a yellow clutch and Aquazzura sandals, the look was instantly Oliviarized.

I deliberated for a while on this one: was the scarf too much on Olivia? Should I give this to Maggie because she made the look her own?

Eventually I went with the super-stylish Olivia, mostly for her addition of the yellow clutch.
