Who Wore Altuzarra Better…Lupita Nyong’o or Toni Collette?

Who Wore Altuzarra Better Lupita Nyong'o or Toni Collette

During Lupita Nyong’o’s epic awards season run, the actress wore an Altuzarra ‘Marlene’ Pre-Fall 2014 pale-blue frock styled with a Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Pre Catelan’ yellow-gold, diamond and chalcedony ring and matching earrings, plus a divine pair of Bruno Magli lilac patent-leather ‘Olabisi’ pumps.

One of the rare non-bold-coloured non-printed pieces we saw from her during this time.

Toni Collette wore the same dress in black while attending ‘The Realistic Joneses’ opening night after-party, which she styled with a plexiglass clutch and a statement necklace.

Preferring both the styling and the colour, Lupita wins for me.

Toni Collette In Naeem Khan – ‘A Long Way Down’ New York Premiere

Toni Collette In Naeem Khan - 'A Long Way Down' New York Premiere

Toni Collette attended the ‘A Long Way Down’ New York Premiere held at the City Cinemas 123 on Monday (June 30) in New York City.

I almost didn’t recognise her since she wasn’t wearing Proenza Schouler for a rare change.

On this occasion she opted for something very feminine, donning a Naeem Khan Spring 2014 black and white peasant blouse with a white taffeta skirt.

As beautiful as the look is, The look feels really off for this occasion.

I see this on the red carpet for a Disney LA premiere on a midsummer’s afternoon, or a luncheon at the Chateau Marmont. It doesn’t work as a New York premiere look for me.

Also, the styling is a bit all over the place for me.

The shoes are too busy, considering the detail on the top, and the same applies to the Ranjana Khan cuffs, but it’s the metallic-gold clutch which is the real head scratcher for me here.

It’s a head-to-toe no from me.

Toni Collette In Proenza Schouler – 12th Annual Women Of Concern Awards

Toni Collette In Proenza Schouler - 12th Annual Women Of Concern Awards

Toni Collette attended the 12th ‘Annual Women Of Concern’ awards held at The Pierre Ballroom on Tuesday (June 24) in New York City.

The Australian actress continues to be the unlikely ambassador for Proenza Schouler (with all due respect), donning an asymmetrical wrap-front construction high-neck dress from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Opting to keep things simple and allowing the beautifully precise silhouette to stay in focus, she styled the look with nude sandals and a single gold bracelet.

Toni Collette In Sally LaPointe & Lie Sang Bong – 2014 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception

Toni Collette In Sally LaPointe & Lie Sang Bong - 2014 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception

Toni Collette attended the 2014 Drama Desk Awards Nominees Reception held at Essex House on Wednesday (May 7) in New York City.

Continuing her edgier take on red carpet dressing, the Australian actress wore a blush silk-organza wrap-around Sally LaPointe Spring 2014 top with a pleated leather and silk skirt from the designer often referred to as the ‘Korean McQueen’, Lie Sang Bong.

The top and skirt are an interesting combination, mostly because the look ends up feeling uncannily similar to the Proenza Schouler dress she wore recently.

Her ivory and blush Gio Diev for Sally LaPointe ankle boots are a big no no for me, bringing down a perfectly good look in one fell swoop.

Toni Collette In Proenza Schouler – ‘Lucky Them’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Toni Collette In Proenza Schouler - 'Lucky Them' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Toni Collette attended the ‘Lucky Them’ premiere during the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival held at BMCC Tribeca PAC on Monday (April 21) in New York City.

The Australian actress seems to be working edgier labels of late – first Altuzarra and now Proenza Schouler.

Her Spring 2014 cut-out dress featuring a wrap-construction bodice and striking metallic-foil-print pleats was styled with metallic-silver pumps.

While I feel that she does pull off this look, I would’ve liked to have seen her do something different with her hair. Possibly because it is always styled this way.

If you are having a feeling of déjà vu, that’s because Rooney Mara wore a similar look from this collection back in October.

Toni Collette In Altuzarra – ‘The Realistic Joneses’ Opening Night After-Party

Toni Collette In Altuzarra - 'The Realistic Joneses' Opening Night After-Party

Toni Collette attended the ‘The Realistic Joneses’ opening night after-party at The Redeye Grill on Sunday (April 6) in New York City.

The Australian actress wore an Altuzarra ‘Marlene’ black dress from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Cut to a fitted silhouette, the flattering frock is very much a contemporary twist on a classic style.

Adding a plexiglass clutch and pale-grey pumps to energise her look, perhaps the necklaces were overkill on this occasion.

You may remember that Lupita Nyong’o wore the same dress in soft-grey during awards season.
