Who Wore Gucci Better? Frida Giannini, Evan Rachel Wood, Raquel Sanchez Silva or Boa

Gucci’s art-deco-inspired Spring 2012 collection was a celeb favourite, and in this WWIB, we have four different ladies who chose the same fringed frock.

Frida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director, donned the dress back in September 2011 for the opening of the Gucci Museum in Florence, just days after the look was first shown during Milan Fashion Week.

Frida appeared in a sleeved version of the runway look. Gucci ‘Ophelie’ suede chain T-strap sandals completed the look.

At the LACMA Inaugural Art & Film Gala, held in LA back in November, Evan Rachel Wood played up the 1920s flapper vibe of the dress with smoky-eye makeup and a finger-wave hairdo. Drop earrings and Gucci t-strap heels completed the look.

Spanish television personality Raquel Sanchez Silva wore the same dress to the ‘Tp De Oro’ Awards 2012, held in Madrid back in February. With a sleek ponytail and smoky eye makeup, Raquel’s styling from the neck up is pitch perfect. Unfortunately, a clunky clutch and dowdy shoes are a major letdown.

On Monday, we saw Korean pop singer BoA bring back the popular look at the Gucci reopening of their Seoul flagship store event, held in Seoul. She let the dress do all the talking, opting to accessorize with just a light gold clutch and the t-strap Gucci heels.

It’s interesting how nearly everyone here wore the Gucci t-strap shoes.

Evan Rachel Wood wins for me for committing to the theme of the look by channelling her inner flapper girl right down to the marcel waves.

Evan Rachel Wood In Jason Wu – Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball 2012

Evan Rachel Wood attended Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball on Sunday in New York City.

The actress opted for yet another stylish menswear-inspired ensemble, this time she picked the first look from the Jason Wu Fall 2012 collection.

This collection had a lot more attitude than we are used to seeing from the designer known for his girlie girl pieces, so I think it’s right that someone like Evan was the first to wear this collection.

Evan paired an ivory blouse with her sleek black velvet suit which had gold button detailing.

Animal print Christian Louboutin pumps gives the look touch of spice, whilst she completed her look with neutral makeup and wavy cropped locks.

Are you tired of Evan doing the menswear thing, or do you like that she keeps it fresh and new each time?

Evan Rachel Wood In Gucci – ‘The Ever Changing Face Of Beauty’ Opening Reception

Evan Rachel Wood attended the opening reception for ‘The Ever Changing Face Of Beauty,’ hosted by W Magazine in New York City last night.

Evan stayed true to her retro style in strapless Gucci Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

I can’t think of a more fitting person to wear this dress, as it combines the menswear-inspired look that Evan favors so much with this season’s trend of peplum skirts.

The actress’ bold attitude and ‘50’s inspired coif keep this dress from seeming too much like office-wear.

Gucci t-strap heels and a studded belt finish the look. My only complaint is that a matching studded clutch would have been a great touch.

Evan Rachel Wood In Barbara Bui – 2012 Producers Guild Awards

Evan Rachel Wood attended the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills on Saturday evening.

She chose yet another menswear-inspired tuxedo, a look that has come to be quite standard for the actress. On this occasion, Evan chose a simple black look from Barbara Bui Pre-Fall 2012.

The look was accessorized with towering black platforms and a Ferragamo black suede clutch with chain metal details.

For a look that we’ve seen before, this showing lacks something special plus the hair and makeup are awful.

At least her post-Golden Globes Gucci suit included a hint of gold.

Here’s hoping that her next few appearances follow her stunning Golden Globes Gucci Premiere dress instead.

Evan Rachel Wood In Gucci – HBO’s Post 2012 Golden Globe Awards Party

Evan Rachel Wood was one of a few stars who changed into a different look before attending the Golden Globe parties.

She donned a Gucci Resort 2012 suit for the HBO’s Post 2012 Golden Globe Awards Party on Sunday night in Beverly Hills, California.

Her black tuxedo with silk satin lapels was paired with a gold metallic top.

Diamond earrings, a gold clutch and bronze Christian Louboutin slingbacks accessorized her look whilst she added a rich red lip colour to complete her look.

I much preferred her previous look. This ages her.
