Who Wore Reem Acra Better…Carrie Underwood or Zhang Ziyi?

Who Wore Reem Acra Better Carrie Underwood or Zhang Ziyi

Carrie Underwood attended the 46th annual CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee wearing a Reem Acra gown from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

This gown is everything we would expect from Carrie: embellished, pretty and floaty.

She styled her look with a Swarovski clutch and, despite the light colour of her gown, she opted for heavy kohl-rimmed eyes.

Zhang Ziyi wore the same gown back in late December while attending the Chinese Music Charts Concert in Taipei, Taiwan.

Opting for Sergio Rossi pumps and dazzling Bulgari earrings, I much prefer her styling with a simple updo as opposed to Carrie’s curly pageant ‘do.

The updo is much more sophisticated and gives the look a cleaner finish.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Selena Gomez In Reem Acra, Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Prada & Blake Lively In Marios Schwab

BDOTW Selena & Blake

Selena Gomez was your best dressed this week in Reem Acra. It would appear that you preferred her sleek red gown over her co-star Vanessa Hudgens’ choice – a Naeem Khan beaded-and-feathered creation.

My pick was Blake Lively. Mrs Reynolds looked sexy, yet still sweet enough for a Disney premiere of ‘The Croods’ last week, showing off those enviable pins in a Marios Schwab fresh off-the-runway dress as she made her first appearance on the red carpet in 2013.

For menswear, we both selected Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Prada. The young actor couldn’t look more handsome his navy-blue suit.

Selena Gomez In Reem Acra – ‘Spring Breakers’ LA Premiere

Selena Gomez In Reem Acra - 'Spring Breakers' LA Premiere

Whether we like it or not, Selena Gomez is all grown up these days, and she showcased that once again on the red carpet at the ArcLight Cinemas for the ‘Spring Breakers’ LA premiere.

After wearing several cut-out dresses back to back, she opted on this occasion for a striking Reem Acra Spring 2013 sleeveless gown with sexy beaded illusion panels.

Like her co-star, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena really owns this look. I think she’s really coming into her own at the moment and really commanding the red carpet.

A black Jimmy Choo clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewels accessorized her look, with her wavy brunette locks twisted into a chic updo and a glossy red pout completing her look.

Is this a BDOTW contender for you?

Adrianne Palicki In Reem Acra – ‘G. I. Joe: Retaliation’ Seoul Premiere

Adrianne Palicki In Reem Acra - ‘GI Joe Retaliation’ Seoul Premiere

Adrianne Palicki stood out again on the red carpet at the ‘G. I. Joe: Retaliation’ World Premiere & Red Carpet at Times Square on Monday in Seoul, South Korea.

This time it was because she wore a striking Reem Acra gown from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.

Her strapless floor-length sparkling stunner with sequin panels was styled with gold sandals and gold jewels.

This look would’ve worked better for me if her hair was pulled back into a chic chignon, but she has a chance to redeem herself later today when she takes to the red carpet again for the Australian premiere.

Halle Berry In Reem Acra – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Halle Berry In Reem Acra - The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

On Monday night Halle Berry made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote her new movie, ‘The Call’.

As much as I love Reem Acra, the first word that sprang to mine when I saw Halle in the designers’ Spring 2013 black dress with an illusion yoke was, ‘desperate’.

Before you quote my favourite line, “if you’ve got it, flaunt it” back to me, I would argue that this dress was fairly demure on the red carpet until Halle and her unsupported twins got hold of it.

And that’s my real issue with look, before that fact that this is yet another LBD.

This is something I would expect from a Kardashian.

Here are some quotes from her interview:

“I wanted to go to the Oscars looking like a Bond girl,” she said. “I felt like I was wearing a Ferrari.”

“I enjoy driving a Ferrari,” Leno said, suggestively. “Can you drive a stick shift?”

“I learned on a stick shift,” she coyly replied.

I mean.
