Who Wore Roland Mouret Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Roland Mouret Fall 2011 Gown

I loved the simplicity and elegance of this gown from the moment I saw it. Now we get to see two very different stars wear it on the red carpet - Australian actress Mia Wasikowska & Reality TV queen Kim Kardashian. Both ladies wore the same wine red gown by French designer Roland Mouret. The stretch-crepe cap sleeved dress has asymmetrical folds on the neckline & a fitted bodice that flares out at the knee. Kim wears the dress 5 months after Mia.

Left: Mia looked graceful at this years' Cannes Film Festival held in early May. She wore the gown to the premiere of her latest movie, 'Restless'.
Right: Kim looked vivacious at the 'Huffington Post's Game Changer Awards' held in New York this week. She accessorized the dress with a shiny gold clutch bag.


The dress was adapted into an evening from this midi version as shown on the Roland Mouret Fall 2011 runway (above left), modeled by Svea Kloosterhof. The gown is available for purchase from Harvey Nichols for a staggering £2000 / R25 250.


Kim had her hair in an interesting French braid while Mia opted for a sleek upstyle.The blonde actress kept her makeup minimal with a berry lip stain and not much else, and sparkled with diamond Boucheron earrings. Kim wears glistening gold disc earrings which highlighted her sun-kissed make-up.

It's obvious that Kim fills out the gown better than the dainty Mia, which demonstrates that this is a look suited to any figure. I like the dress on both. What do you think?

They both look amazing! But how different it seems, at first I didn't get that it's one and the same dress :)

Kim takes it! Love the fishtail braid and the dress looks better on curves! Viva La Curves!
Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

Pich and Roor said...

I agree with you, & since they have such different bodies the dress fits the two of them completely different. I think Kim looks sexy & Mia looks elegant but that's nothing new lol. ps I'm your newest follower :)

They both looked amazing and so classy in this dress, but I have to say it looked and fitted Kim better. It showed off and flattered her curves better than Mia.

Hi Sam,
I like the runway version best, the pleating, color and pockets make it a more interesting dress to me. If I had to choose though I would go with Kim.
Beautiful site BTW :)

they both look very different, but equally very good - the dress adds class to kim, but gives mia a more adult look - I can't decide! x

Now while I'm a fan of curves....I think Mia's slim figure really allows you to see the details in the gown. Lovely blog. I'm now following ;-)
