Who Wore Adam Lippes Better…Kerry Washington or Cheryl Fernandez-Versini?

Who Wore Adam Lippes Better Kerry Washington or Cheryl Fernandez-Versini

Kerry Washington wore this Adam Lippes Pre-Fall 2015 tuxedo dress to the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration back in February, before Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wore the same look to the X Factor London auditions earlier this month.

Someone of Kerry’s stature should’ve knocked this out of the park, but the execution is so poor resulting in the styling falling way short.

Cheryl on the other hand nailed the look from head to toe with her contrasting footwear and sleek appearance. This was an easy win for the X Factor judge.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini In Adam Lippes – X Factor London Auditions

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini In Adam Lippes - X Factor London Auditions

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini joined Rita Ora at the judges table for the X Factor London auditions at Wembley Arena on Sunday (July 19).

The singer made an impeccably tailored statement style wearing an Adams Lippes Pre-Fall 2015 tuxedo dress.

I love the sharp contrast of the black buttons against this sleek white dress, but the real treat were the red sandals which elevated the look when black would’ve been so expected and formulaic.

You may remember that Kerry Washington wore this dress back in February.

Kerry Washington In Adam Lippes - SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration

Kerry Washington attended the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration held at Rockefeller Plaza on Sunday (February 15) in New York City.

Appearing to have shaken off the cobwebs, the ‘Scandal’ star looks to be firmly back on track wearing an Adam Lippes Pre-Fall 2015 dress that is an elevated take on tuxedo dressing.

Short, sexy and enhanced by the decorative black buttons, the look was styled with Jimmy Choo pumps and a peek-a-boo lace bra.

Never normally one to advocate going braless, I feel the look would’ve been much improved without it. Going for a deep plunging neckline would’ve been sexier.

Adam Spring 2012

Adam Lippes was inspired by the energy of his West Chelsea neighbourhood for his Spring 2012 collection.

It must be a beautiful, vibrant place because the presentation gave us feminine pieces with classic tailored shapes.

Pantsuits and trench coats were given modern twists with floral sleeves for the former and sleeveless and sheer for the latter.

I loved the drop-waist dresses with the flounced skirts. They took the runway in several forms: black and white polka dots, delicate cream embroidery and lavender and white polka dots.

Capes, satin pantsuits, neon sweatpants pants with an ivory embroidered sweatshirt, sleeveless jumpsuits and fully embellished shift dresses were served on a colour palette of mostly white, ivory and pink.

Adam also presented gorgeous polka dot shirts, pants and a cape which all had a Pyjama-like feel to them.

The stand out piece was a red Sergeant Pepper jacket paired with a simple white lace dress.

Key accessories included gorgeous Manolo Blahnik sandals in a variety of colours and Selima Optique sunglasses.

Favourites: Butterfly embellished dress and floral print strapless dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Angie Harmon, Evangeline Lilly, Carrie Underwood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Freida Pinto, Elizabeth Olsen, Kate Beckinsale and Olivia Wilde
