Who Wore Stella McCartney Better…Jennifer Lawrence or Rila Fukushima

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better Jennifer Lawrence or Rila Fukushima

Back in February, during awards season, Jennifer Lawrence attended the 28th Santa Barbara Film Festival, where she picked up the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award.

She did so wearing a Stella McCartney tailored jumpsuit striped in tones of navy-blue from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which made for a contemporary evening offering; she styled the jumpsuit with black satin Casadei pumps.

Rila Fukushima made a bold entrance onto the red carpet for ‘The Wolverine’ London premiere last month, wearing the same look with black patent Louboutins, a hot-red pout and side-swept curls.

This was a really easy choice for me: Rila wins – her smoothed-out neckline, overall attitude, confidence and stance win me over.

Who Wore Diane von Furstenberg Better…Rita Ora or Paloma Faith?

Who Wore Diane von Furstenberg Better Rita Ora or Paloma Faith

Here we have two British singers and one Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 dress.

Rita Ora was the first to wear this Grecian-goddess white gown embellished with clear holographic sequins, for the 2013 Brit Awards announcement back in January.

On this rare occasion she wasn’t sporting a red pout; styling included nude pumps, a red manicure and a selection of rings.

Paloma Faith wore the same dress while performing on stage at T in the Park last month, adding a decorative floral accent perched on top of her red-and-blonde updo, with Steve Madden sparkly pumps completing the look.

I am not a fan of either shoe choice, so I will give this one to Paloma for making this performance piece a showstopper with the headpiece.

Who Wore Valentino Better…Alexa Chung or Fan Bingbing?

Who Wore Valentino Better Alexa Chung or Fan Bingbing

Back in November, Alexa Chung attended Day Two of the-miumiu-london women’s club at the Cafe Royal in London dressed in a sweet Valentino Resort 2013 lime-green dress with a frilly white top accented with a black bow belt and styled with black accessories including an Anya Hindmarch ‘Bathurst’ bag.

Just last month Fan Bingbing opted to wear the same dress in pink to a press conference for her latest movie, ‘One Night Surprise’, styling the look with nude platform peep-toes and a pink flower ring.

While I am not a fan of either shoe choice, Alexa is my favourite here – not only because I prefer the green over the pink, but also because I prefer the way she styled the look.

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Better…Blanca Suarez or Rosamund Pike?

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Better Blanca Suarez or Rosamund Pike

Back in March, Blanca Suarez attended the ‘Los Amantes Pasajeros’ photocall wearing a Victoria Beckham Spring 2013 white sleeveless dress, which was a less sporty version of a similar dress which took to the runway.

With her hair teased into a half-up, half-down style, she completed her look with heavy pewter pumps and a cocktail ring.

Rosamund Pike had a lot more fun with the dress when she wore it last month to the London premiere of ‘The World’s End’, adding a hot-pink bra and neon-pink-and-blush Elie Saab sandals.

Rosamund wins for me on shoe choice alone, plus the overall feeling she gives to the look is more vibrant.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better…Nicole Richie, Dafne Fernandez or Tika Sumpter?

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better

Nicole Richie wore a Stella McCartney ‘Bianca’ striped black-and-white dress while seated front row at the designer’s Fall 2013 presentation in Paris back in March as one of the early adopters of the black-and-white trend.

Dafne Fernandez wore the same dress a few days later while attending the Fotogramas Awards, styling her look with sexy black sandals and a matching clutch.

Cut to July, and Tika Sumpter was spotted taking this dress for a spin for the third time while making a guest appearance on ‘New York Live!’ She styled her look with Christian Louboutin ‘Love Me’ pumps and a sleek ponytail.

The A-line skirt looks somewhat deflated on Dafne, so between Tika and Nicole I am going to go for Nicole, as Tika’s pumps do not complement the dress.

You can buy their Stella McCartney dress from Saks.com, Forward by Elyse Walker, farfetch.com US, farfetch.com, Ssense.com and Selfridges.

Who Wore Oscar de la Renta Better…Fan Bingbing or Jelena Ristic?

Who Wore Oscar de la Renta Better Fan Bingbing or Jelena Ristic

When Fan Bingbing wore this Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 gown to the Vanity Fair Party back in February, it was her third of the night following her Marchesa gown to the Oscars and her Elie Saab Couture gown to the Elton John Party.

She allowed the navy-and-white striped, strapless gown to make a statement without the bold necklace the dress was styled with on the runway, opting for a black Roger Vivier clutch and silver jewels.

Jelena Ristic also went for a statement necklace-less approach when she wore the same gown to the Novak Djokovic Foundation London gala dinner, adding a navy Bottega Veneta clutch and silver drop earrings.

The watch and the silver cuff were two pieces too many for Bingbing’s look; I really loved Jelena’s more effortless approach, plus her navy clutch was more complementary so she wins for me.
