Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better…Michelle Obama or Crystal Reed?

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better Michelle Obama or Crystal Reed

Michelle Obama wore a Carolina Herrera navy-and-silver wave-pattern dress featuring bow accents and a square neckline from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection for the dinner hosted by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel back in June.

She styled the look with kitten heels – naturally – and a pair of drop earrings which perfectly complemented the dress.

Crystal Reed – who has had several memorable Carolina Herrera moments – wore the same dress to the BAFTA LA TV Tea Party last month.

She kept her styling just as simple, opting for stud earrings.

You may remember that I thought this dress was a tad too twee for the First Lady. I much prefer this dress on the ‘Teen Wolf’ actress as it suits her sweet girlie-girl style.

Crystal Reed In Carolina Herrera – BAFTA LA TV Tea Party 2013

Crystal Reed In Carolina Herrera - BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea 2013

Crystal Reed attended the BAFTA LA TV Tea Party 2013 presented by BBC America and Audi held at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The ‘Teen Wolf’ actress maybe a relative red carpet newbie, but she seems to have developed a love for all things Carolina Herrera. This is her third look by the designer within a month.

She wore a navy pre-Fall 2013 wave pattern jacquard party dress featuring grosgrain bow-accented straps, a high squared neck, a drop waist, and pleating at the skirt. The look was styled with black pumps.

You may remember that the First Lady, Michelle Obama, wore this same dress back in June.

Crystal Reed In ZAC Zac Posen – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Crystal Reed In ZAC Zac Posen Resort – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Crystal Reed also left the over-the-top irreverence in the closet, as she posed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday.

The ‘Teen Wolf’ actress put the red in this red carpet with a sculpted, strapless ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2014 peplum gown that was nothing if not plenty glamorous, especially with her slicked-back ’do and dainty Neil Lane jewels.

Adding a slightly more raucous note was a spirited crimson leopard-print Valentino clutch. Even so, Crystal couldn’t steal all the thunder from co-star Holland Roden’s daring, dynamite entrance.

Do you prefer this starlet-in-red’s sophisticated statement, or is it too one-note for the VMAs?

Crystal Reed In Dolce & Gabbana – InStyle Summer Soiree

Crystal Reed In Dolce & Gabbana - InStyle Summer Soiree

Crystal Reed is fast becoming one of my favourites on the red carpet, as she clearly got the memo for InStyle’s Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Los Angeles in West Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

She delights, not only because she opted for this summery, party-perfect Dolce & Gabbana floral frock, but I also love the styling, with additional pops of colour via her neon-yellow pumps and a pretty pink lip colour.

Danielle Queller pink sapphire earrings and another bouffant hairdo teased into a half-up, half-down style completed her look.

Crystal Reed In CH Carolina Herrera – 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Crystal Reed In CH Carolina Herrera - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Crystal Reed hit the carpet at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday evening.

Wearing her second Carolina Herrera look in a row, the ‘Teen Wolf’ actress donned a CH Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 black-and-white printed peplum top with the matching pants, which she styled with a white Ashlyn’D clutch, Neil Lane jewels and an L.K. Bennett ‘Flora’ gunmetal-grey clutch.

The look is really sleek and sophisticated, but I’m not a fan of the clutch with this look as it looks a bit plasticky and not in tune with the rest of the uptown vibe of the look.

Sporting the orange lip trend from the Young Hollywood Awards, the actress completed her look with a voluminous bouffant.

Crystal Reed In Carolina Herrera – 2013 Young Hollywood Awards

Crystal Reed In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Young Hollywood Awards

Crystal Reed attended the 2013 Young Hollywood Awards held at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, California yesterday evening.

I am sure you will instantly recognise the print on her sleeveless floral jacquard party dress, which features a contrast solid front yoke, a drop waist and voluminous pleating at the skirt, because it’s the same print we saw on Lucy Liu when she attended the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

Considering the pretty pink roses on her frock, she styled her look with blush Manolo Blahnik sandals, adding subtle Melinda Maria and Graziela jewels, soft neutral makeup and swept-back locks.

Seeing this print on the red carpet for a second time was just as delightful as the first.

Do you agree?
