Who Wore It Better?
The Stella McCartney Edition
It's no secret that Stella McCartney has a huge celebrity and supermodel following. Affirming her vast influence and credibility in the industry, Stella received the 'Designer of the Year' award last month at the 2012 British Fashion Awards. This special Stella edition of 'Who Wore It Better' compares a few looks worn and re-worn by the designer's fashion devotees.
Naomi Harris donned this ornately embroidered blue, white and black dress from Stella McCartney's Fall/Winter 2012 collection. The Skyfall actress wore the same croc embossed ankle boots as shown on the runway.
Arizona Muse most recently wore the impressive dress, for a charity event this week. The supermodel styled her look with sheer black tights, sparkly peep-toe sandals and a matching blue clutch bag.
On the runway, Australian model Shanina Shaik shows off the long-sleeved, high neck dress.
Verdict: I prefer the more simpler styling and lack of tights, so I am going with Naomie Harris in this round.
Placing two supermodels up against each other in the same dress isn't an easy choice. Karlie Kloss and Kate Moss were both spotted in this figure-flattering little black Stella McCartney dress, which features sheer nude side panels. Kate wears hers with black Christian Louboutin heels, white Karlie opts for strappy sandals. Karlie's dress has been customized to a longer length with velvet inserts added to the see-through sides.
Verdict: I have to go with the original supermodel on this one, Kate Moss. This dress looks much better as a mini and more provocative with the sheer panelling.
Stella McCartney battles it out with two other British dames in the same Fall 2012 ensemble, which includes a sporty fit-and-flaired studded skirt with matching black and blue neoprene scuba-style top. Stella, singer Louise Rednapp and cyclist Victoria Pendleton all opted to wear the same pair of two-tone platform pumps as seen on the runway.
Verdict: Besides for the fit being impeccable on runway model Daria Strokous, I have to pick Louise from the three ladies, the outfit is most flattering on her.
UK actress Gemma Arterton wears a menswear inspired jumpsuit from Stella McCartney's Fall Evening 2012 collection. Silver holographic sling-back wedges (from Stella McCartney's Resort 2013 collection) accompany her chic look.
Shailene Woodley was the first to wear this sophisticated black tux suit with plunge neck, pairing it with ankle-strap sandals, which are also by Ms McCartney.
In the Lookbook, veteran model Amber Valletta showed off the prim and polished jumpsuit with ankle-strap pumps and a metallic clutch.
Verdict: It's obvious that Amber with her modelesque height and figure wears this jumpsuit with finesse. However I do like the fit on Shailene...but Gemma's holographic heels are something truly fresh and futuristic. I'm on the fence here.
I'd love to hear your verdicts on who you think wore these Stella McCartney looks better.
