Who Wore It Best?

Olivia Palermo VS Victoria Beckham

For a screening of new movie The Ledge a couple of weeks ago, Olivia Palermo pulled back her hair and popped on this zesty Victoria Beckham design with a eclectic choice of accessories: embellished brass cuff, hot pink petal clutch and leopard print heels.


Whenever we see a Victoria Beckham dress on a celeb, though, it’s bound to have been worn before – by the designer herself. Well, you would, wouldn’t you?! VB gave this beauty its first public outing back in November, when she took it out to dinner along with her favourite Victoria bag.

WINNER: There’s nothing in it when you’re just looking at two gorgeous ladies in a gorgeous dress – so it’s Posh’s flawlessly sleek accessorising that nudges her into the top spot.

Kate Middleton vs Sarah Jessica Parker

Kate Middleton‘s love affair with Alexander McQueen is about as well-documented as it gets. So we couldn’t help but feel that this cable-knit, sailor-style dress was a sartorially spot-on choice as part of her Canada tour wardrobe.

…It also fits with the austerity drive too, as it’s not a new-season design. In fact, Sarah Jessica Parker wore the same dress in navy (along with a punchy pair of red mules and contrasting tan clutch) to celebrate her husband Matthew Broderick being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame all the way back in 2006.

WINNER: We can’t help but feel that Kate’s take on this dress is a little uninspired. SJP edges it thanks to her fearless shoe choice.

Olivia Palermo vs Elen Rivas


Just when we thought Olivia Palermo couldn’t get any cooler, she shows up on the front row of a Couture show in Paris wearing a stunning lampshade dress from Zara – yes, it’s from the high street! – accessorised to the hilt with feathers and bling. Bravo!

Unfortunately for Elen Rivas, the very same day that Olivia was styling it up in the fashion capital she was papped wearing exactly the same design – in with a bad pose and with unfortunate rogue bra strap on the loose. We do rate her candy-coloured peeptoes, though.

WINNER: Olivia’s super-polished take on this dress earns her a no-contest win.

Jessica Szohr V Irina Shayk

Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr looked cute as a button when she wore this beachy Raquel Allegra tie-dye maxi dress with a bouffant ponytail and flat sandals to an event promoting So.Be drinks.

We wonder whether Ronaldo’s squeeze, Irina Shayk, was paying attention? Just a few days later, we spotted the model wearing exactly the same dress, albeit cinched in with a silver belt and paired with a boxy white handbag and black gladiator sandals.

WINNER: Both girls have put their own stamp on this dress, but it’s Jessica’s easy, breezy summer style that does it for us.

Paris Hilton V Katie Price

Talk about a blast from the past! Paris Hilton wore this blue asymmetric Brian Lichtenberg dress to the Fox Reality Awards back in 2009, accentuating its shape with a sculptural up-do.

Katie Price probably thought enough water had passed under the fashion bridge to get away with wearing the same design – albeit in red, and with loose hair – to the Terrence Higgins Trust Gala dinner a couple of weeks ago. But nothing gets past our eagle eyes, Katie!

WINNER: Paris’ sophisticated take on the look wins hands down for us – and we’re suckers for blonde on blue.

Emma Roberts vs Laura Bailey

It’s no secret that Emma Roberts is a Chanel devotee, so we weren’t surprised to see her on the front row of the label’s spring/summer 2011 catwalk show in this classic blue tweed dress with flirty feather trim in March.

Brit model Laura Bailey followed suit (well, dress), a few months later at the Royal Academy of Arts preview at Somerset House. Like Emma, she kept her blonde locks loose and opted for a neat clutch and closed-toe platform heels to finish.

WINNER: It’s a tough one, but we think Emma just pips Laura to the prize.

Diane Kruger vs Natalie Massenet

Diane Kruger caused quite the stir in this neon lace-panelled maxi dress with contrast belt at the Liaisons au Louvre event in Paris last month. The distinctive design is by hot new name-to-know Alessandra Rich.

…But eagle-eyed style watchers will have known that already, as Net-A-Porter founder Natalie Massenet – whose online boutique is championing the label – debuted it at the Royal Academy of Arts preview at Somerset House at the beginning of June.

WINNER: The nonchalent blonde waves, the strappy blush sandals, the micro-clutch… This is a triumph for Diane.

Christina Aguilera vs. Kristen Stewart

Christina Aguilera stepped out in this asymmetric lace Valentino cocktail dress – accessorised with her usual va-va-voom armoury of bombshell tresses, red lip, full-on tan and peeptoe heels – for the 2nd Annual Mary J Blige Honors Concert in New York last month.

Proving that it’s not what you wear, it’s the way that you wear it, Kristen Stewart wore exactly the same dress in a completely different way (messy up-do, closed-toe heels, natural skintone) for a screening of Welcome To The Rileys back in October 2010.

WINNER: Kristen’s demure take on this wins hands down for us. Sorry, Xtina!

Kate Middleton vs. Lydia Bright

Kate Middleton earned Reiss’ Shola dress a gazillion column inches when it was the first post-honeymoon look she was pictured in. Oh, and she also happened to be chatting to Michelle Obama at the time. Talk about a double whammy.

Pity, then, TOWIE‘s Lydia Bright, who was snapped just a week later in the same design as she did a spot of shopping in London.

WINNER: Oh, Lydia, honey. This was one battle you were never going to win – so why even try?

Ciara vs. Kylie Minogue

For Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala earlier this year, US singer Ciara ensured all eyes were on her by keeping the lacing on her gorgeous micro mini Emilio Pucci dress loose and pairing it with lashings of diamond accessories.

Kylie, meanwhile, took a more conservative approach when she wore the same dress to a theatre opening night last month; pulling it in tighter, and adding two actual feathers for a neat styling one-two.

WINNER: Ciara, there’s no denying that you look seriously hot, but Kylie and Pucci go together like Lagerfeld and Chanel. Kylie wins!

Kate Bosworth vs. Taylor Swift

No wonder Kate Bosworth looks so pleased with herself. This lust-worthy white lace dress, which she was snapped in out and about in Colorado a few weeks ago, is a
