Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better…Elizabeth Banks or Brie Larson?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better Elizabeth Banks or Brie Larson

Elizabeth Banks wore an Alexander McQueen mixed houndstooth-print design with a flared skirt featuring bright contrast flowers that bloom at the hem to the 2014 Breeders’ Cup World Championships back in November, styled with a black wide-brim hat and ankle boots.

Last month Brie Larson gave this dress a second spin for a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’.

The look was enlivened with complementary blue Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Rosing’ pumps, a Khirma New York ‘Oxy’ bag and a chic Adeam black coat slung over her shoulders.

As you know I am a huge fan of Elizabeth, but I was shocked by the uninspiring styling on this occasion.

Not by default, Brie wins by a long mile.

Brie Larson In Alexander McQueen – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Brie Larson In Alexander McQueen - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Brie Larson was spotted making her way to a studio in New York City on Friday (December 19) for her guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her latest movie ‘The Gambler’.

The actress wore an Alexander McQueen mixed houndstooth-print design with a gently flared skirt featuring bright contrast flowers that bloom at the hem.

Enlivening those blooms further, they were complemented by a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Rosing’ pumps, a dual-colour Khirma New York ‘Oxy’ in blue python and a chic Adeam black coat slung over her shoulders.

You may remember that Elizabeth Banks wore the same dress earlier this year, opting not to wear the chic look with a belt.

Do Brie’s belt and blue accessories enhance this look for you?

Brie Larson In Rodarte – ‘The Gambler’ New York Premiere

Brie Larson In Rodarte - 'The Gambler' New York Premiere

Brie Larson attended the New York premiere of ‘The Gambler’ held at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater on Wednesday (December 10) in New York City.

The actress wore a Rodarte Fall 2014 black silk, chiffon, velvet and tulle dress enriched with Swarovski crystals for a festive flourish.

Brie isn’t one for too much fuss on the red carpet, however, this ultra-feminine look with an edge is very much in tune with her indie-girl style.

Christian Louboutin shoes and Forevermark jewels accessorized her look, with kohl-rimmed eyes and a slicked-back do providing the finishing touches.

Who Wore Diane von Furstenberg Better…Brie Larson or Jamie Chung?

Who Wore Diane von Furstenberg Better Brie Larson or Jamie Chung

Back in June Brie Larson wore a star-print Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2014 chiffon ‘Tamara’ gown to the CFDA Fashion Awards styled with a DVF ‘Evil Eye’ shoulder bag.

Jamie Chung wore the same gown to the ‘Big Hero’ LA premiere earlier this month, styling her look with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and a lot more leg.

Preferring her bohemian hairstyling, which worked perfectly in tune with this gown, Jamie wins for me. I much prefer her styling.

Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Elle's 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Elle hosted their 21st annual Women in Hollywood celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, California in association with Calvin Klein, so of course many of the attendees were decked out in the brand’s latest designs.

Kerry Washington: Working a Resort 2015 look which was edgier than we’ve come to expect from the ‘Scandal’ star, she pulled it off with ease. The fold-over neckline sits a lot higher than it does on the runway but this works in her favour, enhancing the matching blue eye makeup. I love the sexy Christian Louboutin ‘Miss Rigidaine’ pumps, but the black and white Thale Blanc clutch feels terribly out of place.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress can pull off just about anything and here she works a Resort 2015 LBD which is inherently minimalist, with the gold-metallic bib, David Yurman jewels and strappy sandals giving the look an edge.

Lizzy Caplan: Serving up a third Resort 2015 look, Lizzy opted for a sportier look, donning a colour-block look styled with grey accessories. The shoes can stay, but that clutch has gotta go. No clutch at all or something considerably smaller would’ve worked for me.
