Who wore it best? Jessica Alba, Kristen Stewart, Kerry Washington and Kirsten Dunst all take on Louis Vuitton’s checkerboard print
Since Hollywood has the oh-so-great fortune of getting a head start on all trends and runway looks, it was only a matter of time before all the looks from the Spring 2013 RTW shows made it onto the red carpet. One of our favorite shows of the season was Marc Jacob’s colorful, eclectic and 60s infused presentation complete with checkerboard prints, flowers, neon colors and school girl bows. Twilight princess Kristen Stewart was the first to step out in a brown romper during her promotional tour of Breaking Dawn PT. 2. Other stars like Kerry Washington and Jessica Alba and Kirsten Dunst soon followed suit.
We love the retro feel of this print and it certainly takes a lot of fashion courage to step out in these looks. So who wore it best? Kristen Stewart takes the crown in this round. Since the actress always looks a tad awkward in skin tight dresses, it’s nice to see her at ease in this look. She looks effortlessly chic while retaining her tomboyish style. Kerry Washington takes the runner up position for having such an unpredictable sense of style and for going all the way by sporting a hair bow straight from the runway that most wouldn’t dare try out. Her minimalist take on this look gets her two thumbs up. What do you think? Who takes the cake in your book? Share your thoughts below + check out the looks directly from the runways of Louis Vuitton.
Stating that Tom Ford is a bit of a design genius is a bit of an understatement. From his days at Gucci to designing for his eponymous line, pretty much everything that he’s touched seems to make sense, fashion-wise. He gets sexy but he also gets restrained elegance (as witnessed by his directorial debut “A Single Man” which starred Oscar Winner Colin Firth.) Hollywood on the other hand also gets Ford which explains the popularity of his pieces since he recently made a come back. Stars like Jennifer Aniston can’t get enough of his line, sporting pieces everywhere from New York to Paris. The latest runaway hit comes courtesy of his backless zipper dress and Hollywood is clearly a fan with heavy hitters like Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Lawrence and even Kim Kardashian (good thing?) sporting the look in different colors.
So who wore it best? Jennifer Lawrence was the first to sport this look on her promotional tour for Hunger Games. Wearing her hair sleek straight, she played off the dress’ gold zipper with some chunky gold heels and finished off her look with red lips. Jennifer Lopez on the other hand opted for some color, sporting the red version while celebrating her 43rd birthday. She looked fabulous in a pair of matching cap-toe Louboutins and finished off her look with an edgy clutch complete with attached wrist cuff. This is a tough call but we’re giving this round to Jennifer Lopez, she looks fantastic at 43 and as much as we love the ever faithful LBD, we love a good LRD more. Who do you think wore it best?

The look: It’s been a while since we’ve had a fashion showdown. So here we go… Demi Lavato has been stepping out of her comfort zone when it comes fashion lately. The new X Factor Judge recently sported a super edgy look complete with feathers and a sleek blonde ponytail at the Teen Choice Awards. This however isn’t the first time that the Falguni and Shane Peacock dress has made it’s way to the red carpet. Model, Selita Ebanks also wore the yellow and black frock (albeit a slightly modified version) to the BET Awards not too long ago.
The verdict: This is not an easy look to pull off. From the graphic print to the gladiator-esque shoulder caps, both ladies get some serious kudos for giving it a shot. Demi rocked the edgy look all the way and she gets points for follow through. Her high and sleek ponytail pulled up with a leather band also adds to the edge of the overall look. After much consideration, we’re giving this round to Selita. There’s something unexpected about the sheer black overlay of her dress. Also, the idea of showing skin while not technically revealing all makes it a very sexy look. Do you agree? Whose look do you prefer? Share your thoughts below.
The Spring 2012 runway presentations brought quite a number of whimsical looks — most notably at Louis Vuitton but as we all know, most runway looks don’t always translate well off the runway. Sarah Jessica Parker who’s a fan of a bit of whimsy herself, recently took one of the gorgeous ensembles from Vuitton out for a spin, attending the UNICEF snowflake ball in a feathered and dyed skirt and blouse combo. Model, Magda Laguinge strutted the look down the runway a few months ago, complete with a monogrammed Vuitton umbrella.
So who wore it best? It was impossible not to fall in love with this look as it came down the runway, it was a perfect spring fantasy realized and brought to life by the incredibly talented Marc Jacobs. That being said, Sarah Jessica took a risk with this look and pulled it off. It was an event appropriate outfit that evoked a certain lightness and charm that not many can pull off. Her look was fresh, playful and edgy at the same time. It also reminds you of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear. This round goes to SJP. What do you guys think? Do you prefer this look on the runway or did Sarah Jessica rock it? Share your thoughts below.
This week’s edition of Who wore it best? features one of the season’s most coveted colors. The look comes straight from uber designer Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2012 line and was strutted down the runway by model du jour Karlie Kloss. Actress Camilla Belle was the first to take the dress for a spin at the Art of Elysium gala and she looked absolutely beautiful in this gorgeous dress. So, on to the heavy task of deciding who wore it best.
This color is gorgeous on both model and actress but the straps look like they were shortened for Camilla and that little tweak in turn changes the look of the bust. Moreover, one of the selling points of the dress is the tea-length hem and you can’t really tell with Camilla’s because the length goes way past her ankles. I would also have loved to see her in sandals with less fabric. Simple t-strap gold heels would have been perfect for this. That being said, Camilla wears the back well. The delicate ribbon of this dress fits her frame and the train doesn’t overwhelm her. It’s both feminine and elegant and she carried it well. It looks like we’e looking at a 50/50 situation here. Karlie gets the front and Camilla gets the back. Who do you think won this battle? Share your thoughts below.
Looks like green is the couleur du jour and we’re absolutely loving it. Since the holiday spirit is in the air and ’tis the season to shine and be seen in shocking color, it was an absolute delight to see both Gwyneth Paltrow and newly single Zoe Saldana in gorgeous green Elie Saab numbers.
Both adorned with sequins that made each of the stars pop and irresistible silhouettes created by a cinched waist, it’s hard to decide who to crown the winner in this edition of who wore it best?
While Gwyneth Paltrow showed off some major skin and some equally major neck bling, Zoe proves that sometimes, less is more. The t-shirt sleeves on her dress coupled with the column silhouette provide a great balance to the drama of the sequins. Zoe’s look is the definition of elegant simplicity with just the perfect amount of playfulness. Sorry Gwyneth but Zoe takes the crown on this one. What do you guys of both looks? Which do you prefer?
This week’s battle of who wore it best is over a gorgeous embroidered Marchesa top. Filled with exquisite details and channeling the ballet meets high glamour, this piece is not easy to pull off. Selena Gomez stepped out at MTV’s European Music Awards sporting the Marchesa creation with a tousled do, silver peep-toes, a red box clutch and no pants, looking slightly overwhelmed.
Her version has also been modified from the original which featured more tulle on the sleeves and on the neck giving it a much more Victorian feel. Kudos to Selena for stepping out of her comfort zone but I’m giving the model the crown on this one. In addition to making the mistake of wearing this top as a dress, what we have here is an unfortunate case of the dress wearing the owner and her stylist should have known better. The top is dramatic enough and didn’t need her overwhelming waves to compete with. Her hair should have been pulled back to bring focus to the stunning cut of the top’s high neck.
I also love the contrast created by the leather pants on the model. Bringing a sleek and modern element to the look continues to play on the edginess that the top is going for while maintaining a clean balance between the top and bottom. Who do you think won this battle? Selena or the model? Share your thoughts below…
In today’s edition of who wore it best? It’s another battle over Marchesa. The British brand is no doubt a staple with A-list stars. Everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Nicole Kidman, Eva Longoria, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson and Rihanna has at some point been beautifully draped in Marchesa. If you’re familiar with the brand, you know that it’s all about details when it comes to the clothes and the same is true with this embroidered red silk organza illusion cap sleeve dress with tulle ruffle skirt. So who wore it best? As much as Blake Lively has always proven herself on the carpet, the winner of this dress battle is the model and here’s why…The dress is a very full/heavy dress. The materials used and the texture created make it that way. Blake Lively loves to show off those legs and the dress looks like it may have been hemmed or shortened from the original version. By shortening the dress, you also lose the original shape and as a result, it looks a little boxy. Pair that with the cap sleeves which are tricky on most – including stunning Hollywood beauties and you have a not-quite-there fit. On the model, the dress has a shape and you know what they say, fit is everything!

In today’s edition of who wore it best, it’s a battle over the gorgeous MARCHESA embroidered red illusion dress with applique cascade skirt and shoulder. Rachel turned heads in this strategically sheer and super delicate dress at the Cannes film festival a few months ago while promoting her film, Midnight in Paris. As beautiful as the dress was on Rachel, after seeing it on display at the Marchesa Fall 2011 show, this dress was meant to be admired at a standstill. The beauty is in the details and every inch of this dress is a work of art.

The Venice Film Festival took off last week and has brought in A-list stars promoting their films and trying to generate Oscar buzz for their work. The Couture of course is really what matters on the carpet and there has been no shortage of exceptional style. Keira Knightely’s “A Dangerous Method” premiered Friday at the festival and although the film is generating mixed reviews, the British star shined in Valentino Couture. As soon as I saw model, Freja Beha Erichsen saunter down the runway in this gorgeous dress earlier this year, I wondered who would pull off the elegance and fairy tale-esque quality of this dress on the carpet. I have to say Ms. Knightely does the job quite well. She wears the dress with the grace and elegance that it deserves and I’m sure somewhere out there, the tens of tiny, delicate fingers that put together this creation are also quite impressed.
