March 21, 2012 Who Wore It Better?

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Sienna Miller, Lucy Liu, Katie Holmes, Amber Heard, Tinsley Mortimer, Leelee Sobieski or Katie Beckinsale

This WWIB post spans five years and seven celebs proving that an Alexander McQueen piece is truly timeless.

Sienna Miller was the first to wear this Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 draped dress back in October 2007 at the premiere of her film ‘Interview,’ during the BFI 51st London Film Festival.

As Sienna is known for her signature grungy look, I like how simple she keeps it here, with just a loose up-do and black pumps.

Simple was certainly not on Lucy Liu’s mind, however, as she wore the same dress in hot pink to a January 2008 taping of ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ in New York City. The hot pink plus leather gloves and pointy toes shoes is just too much.

Just a month later, Katie Holmes wore the same dress in houndstooth at the First Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon in LA. Sporting a shag bob the actress paired her dress with eggplant peep-toes and an Alexander McQueen skull clutch.

Resident bombshell Amber Heard tried out the hot pink number at the ‘Never Back Down’ Hollywood premiere in March 2008. Her shoes let her down.

Socialite Tinsley Mortimer posed backstage at a February 2009 Max Azria fashion show, pairing her dress with black accessories, including a Chanel purse.

Actress Leelee Sobieski took the dress in a more unique route at the May 2011 MoMA & MoMA PS1 Celebratory dinner, by pairing the dress with a unique pair of black-and-white woven ankle boots.

Kate Beckinsale supported Eva Longoria’s foundation party in LA last month accessorizing with simple black peep-toes and a high pony.

Who do you think wore it best?

It’s a tough call with so many beautiful ladies and options to choose from, but I think I’d go with Katie Holmes, because I love the print and 2008 was such a chic year for her.

    I went with Katie because she looks amazing, I love the different print and her styling, this really was a great time for her style wise. Kate was a very very close second as she also looked gorgeous and I loved that she was wearing peep toes 🙂
    Soaking up the undeniable brillinace that was and is Alexander McQueen!!

    This dress is beyond hideous. I’ts not the ugly pepto bismal pink and choice of fabric that’s most shocking, its the fact that this dress has been circulating around hollywood for five years.If I had to choose someone it would be katie holmes- its the easiest on the eye.

    Kate Beckinsale for me! I also really liked how the silhouette on Leelee–she looks so chic 🙂

    OMG, this look is the proof that Katie Holmes needs to hang out with VB again. Damn she was so bold and chic in those days. I think she’s the winner : amazing print, amazing fit, modern hair.
    I want this Katie back!!

    Very impressive dress that made 7 celebs done this.

    This has to be some sort of record for most celebrities wearing the same dress…
    Kate won for me. I like it on Katie Holmes but between the busy print and the curly hair, its just too much.

    Surprisingly, Katie Holmes wore it best for me. I like the print and the dizzying effect it has coupled with the tailoring. I also like the purple peep-toes as complimentary color and design accent to her dress.

    What you eat in breakfast FC…to have such amazing memory 🙂
    Mrs. Holmes for me too..

    Kate is the only one who looks head to toe flawless. She completely sells this look. Amber is my runner up.

  13. Elena March 21, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    This kills me to say, because I so wish it where Amber Heard, but it is definitely Katie. The pattern, the pop of color with the shoes. Perfect.

  14. Alina March 21, 2012 at 2:25 pm #

    Kate Beckinsale for me.

  15. Jessica March 21, 2012 at 2:00 pm #

    On desperate housewives 2 weeks ago, eva longoria’s character wore this or something similar (however I am not 100% sure if it was McQueen) … but in yellow. I would have definitely chose her. But my vote went to Kate Beckinsale here!

  16. dee March 21, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

    Kate Beckinsale.

  17. Martin March 21, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    Katie Holmes is the winner. It looks amazing!! Look: perfect, smile: amazing!!
