Who Wore Versus Better? Tessa Thompson or Kim Kardashian

Tessa Thompson was the first to wear this Versus Fall 2010 dress to the “For Colored Girls” New York Premiere last month.

Her Versus bustier dress with a velvet skirt and leather straps was paired with Rene Caovilla Swarovski crystal embellished sandals.

Kim Kardashian wore the same dress to the Lorraine Schwartz “2BHAPPY” Jewelry Collection launch hosted by Beyonce Knowles this week.

She wore tights, black pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Tights aside Kim looks really uncomfortable in this dress. In all the pictures I saw it looks like she’s holding her breath.

Tessa has a more relaxed vibe plus I prefer how she accessorized this look so she wins for me.

Sidewalk Style – Cheryl Cole In Versus

Cheryl Cole was spotted on her way to Fountain Studios in London today to rehearse for tomorrows X Factor show.

The judge who is constantly under fire for the way she handles her acts and what she wears each week on the live shows, looked happy as she left her new Rolls Royce to head into the studios.

She wore a L’Agence python-stamped leather jacket, black velvet leggings with a leather patch, a Versus t-shirt and Charlotte Olympia platform ankle boots.

The Versus Fall 2010 grey T-shirt has a Bruce Weber photographic print at front with yellow and pink finish.

I really like this look. Her street style totally eclipses her style on the X Factor.

You can shop Cheryl’s t-shirt at Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

More From The “For Colored Girls” New York Premiere

After featuring Janet Jackson and Thandie Newton at the “For Colored Girls” New York Premiere, here are the rest of the stunning looks which hit the red carpet.

Kerry Washington wore a charming Missoni print maxi dress with a complementary gold clutch.

I remember when I saw the Adam Spring 2011 presentation during New York Fashion Week, I said that the one piece which stood out was the red leather dress.

I guess it also stood out for Veronica Webb – who was front row at the presentation – because she wore the red leather dress last night with nude strappy sandals.

Ciara wore a Carven taffeta dress with super sexy Christian Louboutin leopard print ankle booties.

With her hair swept to one side to show off her green earrings, Tessa Thompson looked beautiful wearing a Versus Fall 2010 bustier dress with a velvet skirt which she paired with Rene Caovilla Swarovski crystal embellished sandals.

Anika Noni Rose added plenty of colour to the red carpet wearing an orange and gold embroidered dress with sexy gold strappy sandals.

I love the colour and style of Estelle’s new ‘do. This could be my Spring 2011 look.

The British singer wore a reptile print Alexander McQueen jacket with tapered leather pants, black pointy pumps and a Swarovski necklace.

Her jacket makes this look.

X Factor: Sunday Week 2 – Cheryl Cole In Versus

Looks like Cheryl Cole didn’t make me eat my words on tonights X Factor live results show.

The judge is still not budging when it comes to wearing colour, but at least her black Versus bustier dress was a considerably more interesting than the unflattering Azzaro jumpsuit she wore on Saturday’s show.

Her dress very much reminded me of the red Versus dress she wore during the X Factor auditions.

This is because her dress has same pleated flared skirt, so I couldn’t help having a de ja vu moment when she stepped out on stage.

Cheryl completed her look with the same Valentino bow-embellished satin sandals she wore on last weeks show.

Let’s pray one last time for colour next week.

Versus Spring 2011

The Versace Theatre had been turned into a playground for the Versus Spring 2011 presentation yesterday evening.

It had rustic swings, a roundabout, a slide, a climbing frame and the usual runway was replaced by grass. Real grass.

The sound of kids playing and laughing was heard in the background as we waited.

A school bell rang to signal the start of the show as the first model walked out.

We were first presented with a variety of tartan dresses. Then floral prints dresses, a mixture of both and stripes.

To close Christopher Kane and Donatella Versace presented colour block dresses.

We saw shorts, cardigans worn on shoulders, pleated skirts, pencil skirts and dresses with sexy cut-out details.

The accessories included satchels, strappy sandals and booties with cut-outs which all the same colourful prints as the dresses.

Favourites: Tartan mini dress and blue ensemble with a striped skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Leighton Meester

Fashion’s Night Out: The Show – Leighton Meester In Versus

More than 1,500 guests viewed the largest public fashion show in New York City’s history with “Fashion’s Night Out: The Show” at Lincoln Center last night.

The event was held as part of the run-up to Fashion’s Night Out on Friday, and New York Fashion Week which starts tomorrow.

Leighton Meester was one of the many celebrity guests who attended this event.

I was glad to see the “Gossip Girl” actress giving us edgy without any ridiculousness we’ve seen in the past.

Her Versus Fall 2010 blue bustier dress with cut-out details is super sexy, vibrant and fitting for this celebration of fashion.

She paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Venus Orlato 140 ankle boots and a jeweled clutch.

I’ve never been a fan of Leighton’s hair on the set of GG, so I’m really liking the rich colour and the volume for this occasion.

“Despicable Me” LA Premiere – Miranda Cosgrove In Versus

Miranda Cosgrove proves that she loves the Versus Fall 2010 collection.

Her first look was at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, the second at the “Despicable Me” LA Premiere this weekend.

When I look at this, it’s clear that her Versus Fall 2010 black pleated skirt and plum velvet top was deliberately picked as not to clash with the yellow red carpet.

Had she worn the red or blue dresses from this collection the contrast would’ve been too harsh.

So no grumblings from me about another black summer dress on this occasion.

This look is cute without being too sweet, and grown up without looking like Miley Cyrus.

Christian Louboutin Georgineta heels and Neil Lane jewels complete the look.
