Who Wore Balmain Better…Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham?

Who Wore Balmain Better Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham

For the Vogue Foundation Gala back in July, Kim Kardashian wore a Balmain Fall 2014 military-style look consisting of a woven top and leopard-print skirt. She has since gone on to wear the brand on several occasions.

Having seen Victoria Beckham wearing the same skirt earlier this week, it’s become apparent that Kim has shortened hers.

Victoria opted to keep her look much simpler, shunning the military aspects of the collection and styling her look with black accessories and of course her trademark shades.

For some reason I think this might be a close contest in the poll, but for me there is only one winner – VB.

Victoria Beckham In Balmain – Out In London

Victoria Beckham In Balmain - Out In London

Victoria Beckham returned to London following a brief visit to New York to fulfil her duties as UN ambassador, so Saturday (September 27) was her first visit to her store since it opened in London on September 25.

Leaving the 36 Dover Street Mayfair location, the designer, who is known for her love of all things black, added a bit of spice to her look courtesy of her Balmain Fall 2014 leopard-print ponyskin skirt.

As much as I do think VB is her own best ambassador for her collection, I do love moments like this when she showcases another side to her style.

Keeping it simple with a black sweater, Manolo Blahnik shoes and a chain-accented bag, this falls into BDOTW territory for me… Does it for you?

You may remember that Kim Kardashian wore this same skirt back in July.

Victoria Beckham In Louis Vuitton – Out In New York City

Victoria Beckham In Louis Vuitton - Out In New York City

Victoria Beckham was recently spotted out in New York City, where she spent time fulfilling speaking engagements as a new United Nations ambassador.

The designer, who has also been splitting her time in London for the opening of her flagship store, veered away from her own eponymous label and opted for a Louis Vuitton Fall 2014 ensemble.

Maintaining the more relaxed silhouette that we’ve seen from her of late, she put her own spin on this mannish number by wearing the knit vest and the white, frill-collar button-down shirt loosely un-tucked.

Rather than the slick vinyl black pants from the runway, she dressed down in a more relaxed pair of dark cropped trousers, which cemented the look’s casual, street-chic appeal.

You may remember that Charlotte Gainsbourg wore the exact replica of this runway look earlier this year. Which version do you prefer?

As the September 25th opening of her first store gets closer, Victoria Beckham is spending a lot more time overseeing the 36 Dover Street London location.

The designer wore a casual look on this occasion, donning a Victoria Beckham artistic printed top with a lightly pleated jacket, both from the Fall 2014 collection, paired with dark denim jeans tucked into her Alaïa boots, and, of course, a pair of shades.

I love how this look feels relaxed, yet still in keeping with the designer’s chic style.

The pops of colour are also most welcome, adding some vibrancy to the look.

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – London Fashion Week Party

Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham - London Fashion Week Party

Victoria Beckham attended a party hosted by Ambassador Barzun, Mrs Brooke Barzun and Alexandra Shulman to celebrate London Fashion Week at Winfield House on Tuesday (September 16) in London, England.

Dressed in all black, the fashion designer put her best foot forward while striking her signature pose wearing a dress from her Fall 2014 collection.

Her modern, elegant tunic dress with a pouffy detail along the hemline is a typical unfussy look from VB.

Styled with Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps, she only accessorized the look with a ring.

Are you yearning for more accessories or do you like how the designer styled this look?
