Who Wore Giorgio Armani Better? Gwen Stefani or Angela Bassett

This year Gwen Stefani attended her first Cannes Film Festival as a L’Oreal girl.

She grace the red carpet at the premiere for ‘This Must Be The Place’ wearing a Giorgio Armani Spring 2011 gown.

Her chic white silk gown with a black asymmetrical strap and an opening just above the waist was teamed with tri-colour Christian Louboutin peep-toes and a red clutch.

Angela Bassett wore the same dress to the Multicultural Benefit Gala to celebrate ‘An Evening of Many Cultures’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last month.

She finished off her look with a sleek bob, a black clutch and black peep-toes.

This is a hard one for me because I didn’t like Gwen’s heavy eye makeup, but I preferred her accessories and I loved the red lips, so she eventually wins for me.

  2. Angela. There’s something I love about that strap together with her skin tone and hair.

    Angela, I love this color in contrast with her skin, although I do prefer the hair up like Gwen. Either way, the color is practically invisible on Gwen’s porcelain-like skin.

    Angela by a million points. Black women look gorgeous on white.

    Definitely Angela. Gwen’s make-up isn’t just heavy, it’s badly applied. Whoever did that to her should be out of their job by now.

      As it says in the post, she’s a L’oreal girl, which makes it evermore tragic.

    Gwen wins for me, the OTT make-up and hair give her an edge, work well with the edgy dress. Angela`s styling is too bland and plain for this wacky dress.

    Gwen’s eye makeup and hair ruins the look, and Angela’s is too tight at the bust!
    This is one of those Who Wore It Better moments when I really wish there was a third option! I would have gladly ticked a box that said ‘Neither woman did it justice’. Ever thought about adding a ‘neither’ choice, FC?

      it would make it too easy

    Angela’s skin tone contrasting the dress is what wins it for me. She looks great, but her abs and arms are still in “What’s Love Got to Do With It” shape and the woman is past 50 years of age! Go Angie 🙂

    This dress was made for Gwen so I gotta go with her.

    I’m a big Armani fan and a devoted customer for years BUT this dress is just bad… Oh God… That additional pair of boobs looks so wrong.

    Angela for me, teh makeup adn hair ruined it for Gwen, plus the fact that I don’t liek the overbearing whiteness on her skin tone, it’s almost washing her out. I adore the colour on Anegla’s skin, I adore her hair, everything is beautiful and elegant with her (minus the peeking-out bra). Easily Angela.

      I agree with everything you said!

  12. robbie October 21, 2011 at 12:17 #

    angela for me.

    The makeup completely ruins Gwen’s look so I had to go for Angela. Do like it better with the hair up like Gwen did though.
