Who Wore Christian Dior Better…Claire Julien or Kelly Chen?

Who Wore Christian Dior Better Claire Julien or Kelly Chen

Before her epic promo tour for ‘The Bling Ring’, Claire Julien took to the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2013 pale-pink satin-duchesse and metallic-blue organza one-shoulder dress, which she styled with nude pumps.

Kelly Chen transformed the look, giving it an edgy vibe by adding black shorts, Stella McCartney hologram heels and a Balenciaga cuff.

So who wins? Sweet or edgy? Kelly’s interpretation of the runway look is far more enticing so she wins for me.

‘The Bling Ring’ New York Screening

The Bling Ring New York Screening 1

Louis Vuitton hosted the New York screening of ‘The Bling Ring’ in New York City on Tuesday evening at the Paris Theatre.

After praising the stars’ style yesterday, I was disappointed that a few were below par for their New York outing.

Emma Watson: I was crestfallen when I saw this look. While the v-neck low-back frock featuring a slate silk bodice and hem might be flirty or understandable to some, I found the look very sombre and not in keeping with the Emma I know and love. Not even the Ferragamo gold clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pvc black-striped pumps could lift this look for me. She completed the look with a Monique Péan ring that showed off her pretty lilac manicure, a dark-crimson lip colour and a side-parted ponytail.

Katie Chang: While I love the deep-emerald hue of her 3.1 Phillip Lim dress, it looks like someone just threw fabric over her and she accented it with a leather waistband. I’m only loving the Jimmy Choo ‘Freya’ booties here.

Sofia Coppola: The director did wearing Louis Vuitton selecting an ivory frock with a sequined front panel and delicate tiered skirt which she styled with matching sandals. Only Sofia can make what would appear to some as am embellished t-shirt dress, look so chic. Not one to usually make too much of a fuss when it comes to makeup, she applied a watermelon-coloured lip shade on this occasion.

Taissa Farmiga: The young actress maintains her 100% record, wearing a pretty Marchesa asymmetrical black lace frock which is very much in keeping with her girlie-girl red carpet style. A black Marchesa clutch with a quartz clasp and Ferragamo peep-toes completed her look.

Claire Julien in Emilio Pucci - The Bling Ring New York Screening

Claire Julien: The blonde beauty continues her love affair with Pucci, wearing a nude chiffon embroidered halterneck dress with a long white tulle overdress accented with intricate button detailing from their Spring 2013 collection. It’s a more daring look in comparison to her co-stars; however, I wish the nude lining had been hemmed to be the same length as the white overlay. Claire styled her look with the same Emilio Pucci cross-strap wedges presented with her dress on the runway, along with opulent drop earrings, an Edie Parker clutch and a braided updo.

Claire Julien In Balmain – ‘The Bling Ring’ LA Premiere

Claire Julien In Balmain - 'The Bling Ring' LA Premiere

The last time we saw Claire Julien she was wearing a stunning frothy gown, which was in total contrast to the look she gave us on Tuesday evening at the Directors Guild Theater in California for ‘The Bling Ring’ LA premiere hosted by Louis Vuitton and Vanity Fair.

Like her other co-stars Emma Watson and Katie Chang, she also wore a non-Louis Vuitton look, opting instead for a Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 dress.

It’s hard to appreciate this look for two reasons: the déjà vu effect – Olga Kurylenko wore a similar look with more conviction – and the fact that her glossy tresses are competing with the print and high neckline.

The only things piquing my interest here are her metallic-gold Louboutins and gold clutch.

Katie Chang In Christian Dior – ‘The Bling Ring’ LA Premiere

It wasn’t a total Louis Vuitton fest at ‘The Bling Ring’ LA premiere, held at the Directors Guild Theater in California on Tuesday evening.

Like Emma Watson, Katie Chang also defected to another French brand, selecting a painterly printed floral frock from the Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

You may remember that during Cannes Film Festival she wore a Dior gown to ‘The Bling Ring’ premiere, so she has opted to stay loyal to the brand.

Her tri-colour dress with an asymmetrical hemline and black ribbon detailing was styled with Jimmy Choo black ankle-strap ‘Jada’ sandals and barely there makeup.

16.05.13 Premiere

Claire Julien In Emilio Pucci, Taissa Farmiga In Valentino & Katie Chang In Dior – ‘The Bling Ring’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

'The Bling Ring' Premiere - The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival

It was very much a girls’ night out as Emma Watson and her ‘The Bling Ring’ co-stars took to the red carpet tonight for the movie’s premiere during Cannes Film Festival.

Claire Julien: Having stepped out in Balmain earlier today, the blonde actress selected a blush-coloured Emilio Pucci gown which was custom made for her. The strapless gown with sheer inserts and an epic organza train was styled with a gorgeous smile and natural golden waves.

Taissa Farmiga: For her second Cannes look, the actress wore a Valentino Fall 2013 gown, a privilege many more established actresses are yet to enjoy. Her sleeveless black gown with an off-white lace bodice with leather insets at the sides features a tonal lattice beaded embellishment throughout. Side swept tresses and diamond drop earrings completed her look.

Katie Chang: The young actress had the honour of being dressed in Dior tonight. The brand are really staking their claim on this festival this year. Katie wore a Dior white silk crepe gown with a black sash which she styled with Dior Fine Jewelry.

They may be relative unknown celebrities to us, but it looks like fashion brands are taking notice, which is to be applauded.
