Who Wore Proenza Schouler Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 Dress

I first saw this kaleidoscopic jigsaw print Proenza Schouler dress on 6 June this year, when Liv Tyler wore it to the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City. Liv represented the Proenza Schouler fashion brand at the awards show, where the team took home the award for 'Womenswear Designer of the Year'. Five months later, style darling Olivia Palermo was spotted on the streets of NYC wearing the same dress. It's interesting to see that Olivia would wear this dress on a random day out, while Liv savoured it for the red carpet.

Olivia Palermo takes a moment to pose in the puzzle print halter neck dress. She wore a long black coat over it, with ankle boots by Bakers Flare.
Liv Tyler wore the belted dress as it was seen on the catwalk. The folded detail on the front of the dress is more visible on her. She carried a black clutch and stood in strappy heels, both by Proenza Schouler.
Canadian model Kelsey van Mook walked the runway in the multicoloured silk dress, wearing it with black multi-strap sandals.

I prefer this look on Olivia, simply because of her styling. The print and colours are very bold and I think she simmered it down well with the black coat and boots. What are your thoughts?

This is such a unique dress, I think it looks best on Olivia but the colors look more vibrant in the photos on Liv.
Nice post!

Olivia is a styling goddess. There is no question she knew what she was doing here. I also really like Liv Tyler's look. It is appropriate for a star-studded event, and I love the fit on her!

Olivia's nailed it! The print looks better with a jacket over it though the folded detail is hidden

It's a beautiful dress, however not a red-carpet or special event piece in my opinion. Olivia definitely got it right.

The jacket and the boots make the look very edgy

Gigi Lam said...

great blog ~ Definitely following :)

Personally I liked it better on the runway ~ Liv Tyler's body didn't really quite fit the dress. & Olivia basically covered it .. I get the layering but when you're wearing a dress that's already in layers prob better to keep it simpler ~

Have a great week!

Agree with your choice:)

My favorite would also be Olivia Palermo, but I would have paired it with other shoes or maybe with ankle boots, those boots seem a bit too high for me :) The dress is gorgeous though, no matter what!

Olivia gets my vote here. I love the jacket over the dress, that kind of waterfall style is something I am a big fan of.

This is a hard one and I think it's a tie for me between Olivia and Kelsey.

I want to say Liv because I love her so much, but I've got to give it up to Olivia here. She made it somehow a wearable day look, which really only she could do!

That dress was one of my favorites of that Proenza's runway! I like it better on Liv, for I think it was clearly designed to be the standout piece of any look. XOXO, María José
