January 29, 2015 Who Wore It Better?

Who Wore KaufmanFranco Better…Kate Beckinsale or Selena Gomez?


Kate Beckinsale attended the 2014 American Music Awards back in November wearing a stunning ice-white KaufmanFranco gown featuring a deep plunge and sexy side cut-outs which she styled with a Bulgari necklace and Lee Savage clutch.

Selena Gomez wore the same gown to the 2015 InStyle and Warner Bros. 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Post-Party this month, also opting for the same Lee Savage clutch but going light on the jewels with just dangling earrings.

I was convinced I would love Kate until I placed the looks side by side. On reflection, I much prefer Selena’s jewels and the belt she added to the look.

    Kate, even though I don’t like the necklace, but the gown looks much better on her.

    I think it’s a tie. I like both ladies looks equally.

      I like the dress on both of them.

    I don’t think these two dresses are exactly alike, actually. Kate’s deeper plunge is more appropriate for her, and I am one who LOVED the necklace 100%.

    The fit on Kate is swoon-worthy. But so far I haven’t come across a snake necklace that didn’t ruin a look for me. And this isn’t an exception sadly.

    Kate by a mile. She makes the gown elegant and chic, the plunge sits properly on her whereas it gapes on Selena. I also find the look borderline ageing and a bit tacky on Selena, unfortunately.

    I agree with you FC…..when u put both side by side you can see that it fits Selena much nicely than Kate…..Kate’s necklace, however beautiful, didn’t belong here. Further I like how Selena’s clutch pops against the white, plus Selena’s smaller frame makes a train out the dress, which I like.

    BTW, I think that the dress being too big is the reason the neckline is wider, too open, like Nat39 pointed out. Looks like it got a quick nip in at the sides to make it smaller so nothing lands quite as it should down the middle.

    Kate. No contest. Selena’s hasn’t been tailored to fit her properly while Kate’s has been fitted to perfection. Note that even the top of the straps/bodice have been shaped to best flatter. Looks like Selena’s dress was too big and they didn’t do a good job of shaping it to fit her.

    Without a doubt, Kate. The deep neckline sits properly her, on Selena it splits a bit too open and the bust presentation needed more support. And I love how Kate’s necklace adds to the look, plus there is no denying that this sleek, sexy and clean-cut gown suits more mature and charismatic Kate more.

    I also go with Selena. She didn’t overcook the look.

    • hello January 29, 2015 at 3:58 pm #

      Exactly! Kate overdid it like she always does and everything about her looks so fake. I can’t believe she’s winning.

    Kate just shows the chutzpah and confidence needed for the dress that Selena does not quite pull off yet.

    Poor Selena has no chance against Kate.
