Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better? Violante Placido or Tess Daly

It looks like Cheryl Cole wasn’t the only one giving us a red carpet re-run at the 2011 National Television Awards which was held at The O2 in London last week, Tess Daly did too.

Violante Placido wore this Alberta Ferretti draped silk-chiffon gown to the 2010 Venice Film Festival Opening Ceremony and “Black Swan” Premiere.

I loved the subtle gold accessories which she paired with her Resort 2011 blush gown, as they didn’t over power her look.

Unfortunately when it comes to Tess Daly, I see the clutch, the cuff and the necklace before I see her gorgeous gown.

When it comes to elegance less is more which is why Violante wins this by a very long margin.

2010 Venice Film Festival Opening Ceremony & “Black Swan” Premiere – Jo Champa & Violante Placido In Alberta Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti always has a strong showing on the red carpet at European Film Festivals, and last nights 2010 Venice Film Festival “Black Swan” Premiere was no exception.

Whilst model Elisa Sednaoui wore a look from Alberta Ferretti’s Special Gown collection.

Violante Placido and Jo Champa both wore looks from the Alberta Ferretti Resort 2011 collection.

Actress Violante Placido wore a blush chiffon Alberta Ferretti Resort 2011 gown which is a divine colour on her.

I prefer her thinner waistband to the models and I adore her gold accessories which include a gold Ferragamo minaudiere.

I’m not so keen on the cuff, but when her gown, hair and make-up are this gorgeous that is easily brushed aside.

Actress Jo Champa opted for an Alberta Ferretti white silk chiffon Resort 2011 gown.

I really love the poufy sleeves and the chantilly lace which decorates her décolletage.
