Who Wore Gucci Better?


Who Wore It Better?
Gucci Evening Gown

There is no better way to cure the Monday Blues than with a good Fashion Faceoff, and this week we pair off two television stars, Olivia Wilde and Kelly Ripa, who were both photographed in the same black evening gown, tailor-made by Gucci.

On The Left:
Olivia Wilde first donned the jet-black silk georgette evening gown to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in February 2012. The strapless dress also features a crystal embroidered bow waist band. The House actress polished off her look with hints of gold - a choker neckpiece, bracelets and Salvatore Ferragamo clutch bag. She kept her hair up sleekly in a high bun and went for a smouldering smokey eye.
On the Right:
Kelly Ripa picked out the same figure-moulding Gucci dress for a charity ball held last week, on 25 April 2012. The blonde TV host wore the spaghetti strap version of the gown, pairing it with a black clutch and heels. Kelly had her hair styled in soft waves, with soft make-up.



As for 'Who Wore It Better', with a dress that's made to outline the feminine form like this one, it's almost impossible to go wrong with it. But I have to give it to Olivia Wilde for the impeccable styling. The gold accessories added that Midas touch. What are your thoughts?

I'd have to pick Olivia Wilde as well-- I love love how her hair is put up, and that combined with the gold necklace really elongates her neck and makes her look lovely!

My pick is Olivia, because of the necklace and .. I don't know if it's the photos but Kelly's head looks huge? :)

Fabulously elegant dress, it's hard to go wrong with it really. Love the gold, though would have preferred something other than a choker I think. Hope you had a lovely weekend and the week ahead is looking fabulous!

Olivia Wilde. Her updo and gold accessories look great with the dress

Daniella said...

Hi lovely,hope you had a nice weekend! Great post,i think they both look beautiful though i am in agreement with your choice on who wore it better. I think Olivia accessorised it better and i think her whole attitude comes across more natural whereas Kelly looks like she has forgotten to breath! :)

Take care,Daniella xox

Olivia, also, she looks a bit better, mainly because she is not looking like a straw, she has some "meat" to put in thad dress and that is why the dress looks better on her! :)

I'd have to go with Olivia, her make-up really completes the look. Thanks for sending me the info on the dress Sam, it was 'sold out' on the website, but I got in touch with them and they're trying to find one in my size. My fingers and toes have been crossed all day! <3

Tere Ávila said...

Sootjeelina said...

The dress is gorgeous indeed! But I must say, I love it on Olivia Wilde better as well, the gold accessories and the dark make-up look better than what Kelly Ripa wore it with

Definitely Olivia Wilde, I love how she paired it with some gold accessories. Plus, I think it's more figure-flattering in her case, Kelly looks way too skinny in this photo...

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Oh, wow! It looks so fabulous on both beautiful women. If I had to choose, I guess I'd have to say Olivia Wilde simple because her curves certainly bring the gown to life and sometimes Kelly looks a little bit on the too-thin side. But they're both lovely and I hate even saying anything even a teensy-negative about anyone .. unless, of course, they are begging for it {lol}!! Have a fab Monday, sweets!

I actually don't like the choker that Olivia is wearing, but I do like her hair up. She definitely wears Gucci better in this post!

The Jones said...

Gotta say I actually like Kelly better (shock!)...I think Olivia's choker necklace makes the dress way less feminine and cuts off the line of her body. But both of them really look gorgeous!!!

I prefer Olivia, she made the dress look edgier<3

Indira said...

Fabulous dress I must say and like the majority, Olivia looks stunning. The make-up, the hair do, and her complexion suit the dress better than Kelly.

Wonderful dress, I Love Olivia

Hey, Sam!
As you say, the Gucci gown is an instant winner in both stars, but this time I have to disagree a bit with you: though that Midas touch of Olivia's clutch is nice, it's kind of predictable, and I'm not sure about the necklace fit, either. Then, despite her too-skinny condition, I prefer Kelly's way this time, with extra points for her sexy waves, to vary.
Hope you're having an excellent week!!
XOXO,
María José
