Who Wore Gucci Better? Eva Mendes or Karen Elson

Eva Mendes chose to wear this beautiful Gucci silk chiffon dress from the Fall 2011 collection whilst out promoting her movie “Last Night” at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival back in April.

Her scarlet red 70s-inspired chiffon dress features long blouson sleeves and a matching belt to cinch in the waist.

Eva paired the dress with strappy nude Jimmy Choo heels and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, including gold earrings and two diamond rings.

She wore her hair in flowing waves to complement the vibe of the dress and added a sexy coral lipstick to her look.

Karen Elson wore the same dress to the launch of “Tonight We Tanqueray” in New York recently.

The stunning red-head looked striking in the dress, which she only accessorized with a pair of embellished strappy heels.

Karen also opted for matching red lipstick, which turned the heat up on her look several notches.

Whilst Eva looks amazing in red, I feel the dress is a little too conservative and covered up for sexy, curvy figure.

I love how the dress pops beautifully against Karen’s skin tone and hair colour so my vote is going to her.

Karen Elson In Gucci – “Tonight We Tanqueray” Launch Party

Karen Elson launched “Tonight We Tanqueray” at The Green Building in New York on Wednesday night.

The model/musician wore a Gucci silk chiffon dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

The flame haired beauty wore a red silk chiffon long sleeve dress without the scarf detail.

She opted for anonymous heels to keep the focus on her dress and red smoldering lips.

Red continues to be a favoured red carpet colour for Karen.

You may remember that Eva Mendes wore this dress first back in April.

Karen Elson In Marc Jacobs – WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala

Model Karen Elson is the 3rd gorgeous red head I’m featuring on my blog today following Julianne Moore and Nicola Roberts.

The one thing all these ladies have in common is that they’re not afraid of wearing bright colours. In fact their moto seems to be ‘the brighter the better’.

Karen attended the WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala in New York City last night wearing a stunning fire engine red Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 dress.

The runway purple would have been amazing on her, but the red is even more electric.

Her satin dress with a draped detail from the bust was accented with velvet red sash to the waist.

The dress is amazing, but the accessories really make this a BDOTW worthy look.

She teamed her dress with Marc Jacobs’ red feathered heels and a Marc Jacobs Black Orchid Pave “The Orchid” clutch in brown on the red with gold hardware.

This is one of my favourite looks so far this week.

You know how I love a lot of colour :)
