Who Wore Roland Mouret Better…Samantha Barks, Karolina Kurkova or Natalie Dormer?

Who Wore Roland Mouret Better Samantha Barks, Karolina Kurkova or Natalie Dormer

Roland Mouret’s ‘Abbotsford’ dress has been worn by celebrities on three separate occasions and in two different colourways.

‘Les Mis’ actress and red carpet newcomer Samantha Barks was the first to wear the black-and-green version to the 2013 London Critics’ Circle Film Awards back in January.

Opting for subtle jewels and an updo, she added metallic-silver Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps to her look.

Karolina Kurkova wore the same dress in green-and-white with Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps for her guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ the following month. Only Karolina can make me fall in love with a look which features white pumps.

When Natalie Dormer attended the ‘Games of Thrones’ LA premiere she wore her ‘Abbotsford’ dress with black pumps.

I prefer the green-and-white runway version over Samantha’s black-and-green. Natalie’s footwear was totally wrong for this dress and Karolina took my breath away, so it was an easy win for the leggy Czech model.

Karolina Kurkova In Vivaz – amfAR Gala Sao Paulo

Karolina Kurkova In Versace - amfAR Gala Sao Paulo

I’m sure jaws were hitting the floor like dominos when Karolina Kurkova hit the red carpet for the third annual Inspiration Gala São Paulo on Saturday evening.

The popular supermodel looked stunning wearing a pink Vivaz gown.

You may remember that Gisele Bundchen wore a rose-pink satin Versace Fall 2008 gown to the 2008 Met Gala, followed by Spanish actress Mar Saura to the Goya Awards, back in 2009; Karolina’s hot-pink crepe version by Brazilian designer Vivaz, featuring silver bugle beading tracing the bodice, was clearly inspired by that infamous gown.

She styled the gown with a silver spider cuff, a Jimmy Choo clutch and diamond-encrusted earrings.

Opting for smoky eyes, a slicked-back ponytail and a pink lip colour, this is my second BDOTW contender of the day, following Taylor Swift.

Update: The gown is not Versace. It is a blatant copy of the Versace Fall 2008 look. Thanks for all those who have informed me.

Karolina Kurkova In Cédric Charlier – FOX News Studios

Karolina Kurkova In Cédric Charlier - FOX News Studios

Karolina Kurkova is keeping the shutterbugs on their toes in New York City: she was spotted out again on Tuesday morning, this time leaving the FOX News Studios, where she was promoting the season finale of Oxygen’s ‘The Face’.

This time, the leggy model stunned wearing a mini dress by Belgian designer, Cédric Charlier.

Her multicolour-print body-hugging dress from the Spring 2013 collection was once again teamed with a gorgeous pair of strappy sandals, this time in a complementary and summery coral hue.

A gold choker, free-flowing tresses and a coral lip colour provided the finishing touches.

Fashion wise, she’s having an awesome week.

I love her mix of established and up-and-coming designers, plus her choice of footwear is both varied and lust worthy.

Karolina Kurkova In Karolina Zmarlak - New York Live!

Karolina Kurkova was spotted leaving New York Live!, taped at the NBC studios where she was promoting her Oxygen show, ‘The Face’, in New York City on Tuesday.

The Czech model showed her support for up-and-coming Polish designer Karolina Zmarlak by wearing a look from her Fall 2013 collection.

Dressed in a bright-orange pony-hair top and skirt, she accented the look with a nude leather belt.

I love the gold Edmundo Castillo ‘Adena’ strappy sandals and her carefree golden tresses.

On this occasion, she completed her look with a hot-red pout.

Karolina Kurkova In Roberto Cavalli - The Today Show

Karolina Kurkova stopped by the Today show on Tuesday morning to chat with hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda about the season finale of Oxygen’s ‘The Face’.

Proving that I was right to name her best-dressed model of 2012, the Czech beauty wore a Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 printed blazer with a black satin shawl collar, the focal point of her look, styled with an ivory Cavalli blouse and Marissa Webb leather pants.

Ruthie Davis ‘Captiva’ blush pumps with green piping plus Bijules and Jennifer Fisher rings accessorized her look.

Opting for kohl-rimmed eyes, the supermodel left her golden tresses flowing around her shoulders, with a pink lip colour providing the finishing touches.
