Who Wore The Kooples Better… Joanne Froggatt or Laura Whitmore?

Who Wore The Kooples Better Joanne Froggatt or Laura Whitmore

Last month Joanne Froggatt attended the British Independent Film Awards 2013 wearing a black strapless jumpsuit from The Kooples.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star, who usually opts for more colourful looks, styled her jumpsuit with a black Louis Vuitton clutch and simple black pumps.

Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore wore the same jumpsuit last week, opting to go a bit further with her accessories, adding a white blazer, a Kate Spade New York clutch and a Jennifer Behr gold-spiked headband.

While I appreciated Laura’s styling efforts, less was more in this case so Joanne wins for me.

Joanne Froggatt In The Kooples – British Independent Film Awards 2013

Joanne Froggatt In The Kooples - British Independent Film Awards 2013

Joanne Froggatt attended the British Independent Film Awards 2013 held at Old Billingsgate Market in London on Sunday evening.

Like Cate Blanchett, the ‘Downton Abbey’ star wore a black strapless jumpsuit. Unlike Cate Blanchett, Joanne’s The Kooples jumpsuit is available to purchase now.

I love how the neckline of this elegant strapless jumpsuit is trimmed with a thin satin band and notched detail to prevent it from looking too plain.

Usually the champion of colour, the actress wore all black here, adding a Louis Vuitton clutch and black Jimmy Choo pumps to her look.

Knowing me, I should be screaming for colour, but once again, as with Felicity Jones, I believe this look was styled perfectly, with nothing needing to be added or taken away.

Joanne Froggatt In Hervé Léger & John Rocha – 2013 BFI London Film Festival Awards

Joanne Froggatt In Herve Leger & John Rocha - 2013 BFI London Film Festival Awards

Joanne Froggatt attended the 2013 BFI London Film Festival Awards held at Banqueting House in London on Saturday evening.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star has always been a favourite of mine, and I have full admiration for this look considering the journey it made from the runway to the red carpet.

Her look consists of a Hervé Léger black top and a John Rocha Fall 2013 leaf appliqué skirt which started out its life on the runway as a strapless dress.

Some runway looks are often presented as seen on the runway, so for her stylists to see past the original look to create what we see on Joanne takes great foresight and imagination worthy of praise.

A green cummerbund, David Webb jewels, a simple black clutch, and embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Artifice’ pumps completed her look.

If I dare nitpick, I would’ve love her hair pulled back or up with this look. Otherwise, I’m in total lust.

Joanne Froggatt In Hervé Léger for Max Azria - ‘Filth’ London Premiere

Joanne Froggatt attended the London premiere of her latest movie ‘Filth’ held at the Odeon West End yesterday evening.

Swapping her maid’s uniform for something sexier, the ‘Downton Abbey’ star looked gorgeous in a colour-blocked Hervé Léger dress with a purple off-the-shoulder bodice, pale-blue triangular waist panel and navy-hued skirt.

The likes of Kim Kardashian and Heidi Spencer ruined Hervé Léger for most of us, but it’s moments like this I can appreciate just how amazing the iconic dress can look.

Gold caged Walter Steiger heels, a metallic-gold Jimmy Choo ‘Carmen’ clutch, smoky eyes and tumbling waves completed her red carpet look.

Joanne Froggatt In Topshop & Camilla and Marc – Venice Film Festival

Joanne Froggatt In Topshop & Camilla and Marc - Venice Film Festival

Joanne Froggatt has been promoting her new movie, ‘Still Life’, during the 2013 Venice Film Festival this week.

Photocall: She kick-started yesterday morning wearing a bright-red Topshop mini dress with a fit-and-flare silhouette, which she accented with a black waistband and Christian Louboutin pumps. I love the fact that a high-street brand has graced the red carpet at such a prestigious occasion. The vivid dress is as brilliant as her smile.

Premiere: For the premiere she kept things low-key, yet event appropriate for a daytime premiere, wearing a Camilla and Marc Resort 2014 light-pink frock with an asymmetrical skirt styled with a patent-leather nude Christian Louboutin clutch and matching pumps. Is this look too blush for you? I would only ditch the clutch here.

Portrait session: My favourite look of the trio was the Topshop look she wore today to the portrait session. Her uber-girlie high-street look featuring a sleeveless blouse and floral-embroidered skater skirt (which we’ve seen in yellow on Katherine Jenkins) may be too sugary for some, but I love everything about it right down to her nude Louboutins.
