Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 dress

Who could forget the daring see-through Emilio Pucci gown that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to last year's Emmy Awards? Apparently Kim Kardashian did. The reality star donned the exact same gown for a yacht party held in Cannes this past May. You may remember that Kim was also a victim in last week's episode of 'Who Wore It Better'. This ought to be interesting...


Left: Kim Kardashian stole glances at P Diddy's famous yacht party held in Cannes this May. The fully embroidered black gown features an illusion bodice and midriff baring top.
Middle: Gwyneth Paltrow had already grabbed media attention with the same Pucci dress in September last year, when she wore it to the Primetime Emmy Awards in LA.
Right: Supermodel Toni Garrn swayed down the runway for Emilio Pucci Spring 2012's showing, wearing the sexy frock.

Kim wore her hair up in a chic ponytail with stunning twisted diamond earrings. 
Gwyneth had her hair ironed out and put on Neil Lane drop earrings.

As for 'Who Wore It Better?', I can't believe I am going to say this, but I have to give this round to Kim. The reason I didn't like the gown on Gwyneth was due to the wider spacing of the exposed midriff, the look seemed discordant. Whereas on Kim, the skirt has been lifted so the sheer gap is minimal, and the top fits her much better. What are your thoughts?

I prefer the dress on Toni, it just works well on her body while Kim's body just doesn't seem to be working in it.

I prefer the dress on Gwyneth. On Kim, the bust area seems too large for the shirt, while on Gwyneth, it doesn't.

I was just watching an argument about this on Fashion Police! lol
It looks best on the model but I do prefer it on Gwyneth than Kim... I think it suits her small bust better... x

Miška said...

Kim look really good!

I liked it best on Toni, the makeup and hair was great. But funny enough I prefer it on Gwyneth (for the exact reason you don't Sam!) :) Indian costumes tend to look a bit like that so I'm used to the wider exposed midriff area and I think this outfit is perfect for that :) xoxox

You forgot Miley on Hunger games premiere, I prefer her too the three of them.
How have you been doing dear?

I have to agree - Kim is rocking this! Gwyneth looks good but Kim feels more pulled together.

Hope you enjoy your break lovely!

Everyone keeps saying Kim but I think it just makes her look chubby and stumpy. Normally I love everything she wears but I think body wise it looks better on Gwyn. But I do think Kim styled it better!

The outfit is really beautiful, and I really love it overall on Gwyneth.

Ummm!... this one is so debatable... Of course the model looks great (when has something looked bad on a 6 foot tall, size 0 model?) because she is wearing the dress as the designer intended with just the lace covering, which I actually like (surprisingly!). Gwyneth looks nice in hers and she has a great body to show off but I think what takes away from her is the fact that the top is too high on her neckline and her straight hair falls right into that already busy field of vision. While Kim's hourglass figure is not quite suited for stuff like this she gets away with it and looks great because she kept the midriff baring very little, the neckline is lower (probably due the fact they needed the material to cover her ample bossoms) and her hair is swept back letting the dress design stand out. So there are my 2 cents!... still can't pick a favorite!

Happy Monday!

I love this look, but Gwyneth definitely wins for me, it just feels more edgy on her!

Denise said...

Wow, great post, it's good to see that celebrities wear clothes from other seasons - in this case, KK. When I saw both wearing this lovely outfit, I also thought "I think KK..." and then I found your opinion, the same way I thought, too: "I can't believe..." But yes, I think GP is lovely, but maybe some curves added to the outfit. I know I would love to wear it!
Don't worry about the length of comments, just enjoy the holidays!!!!! Very happy for you!

Amazing dress!

Audrey Allure said...

While I think the model wore it the best, between Kim & Gwyneth - I'm going with Kim too. The way she closed the gap made it look like it fit a lot better!

Miss Margaret Cruzemark said...

Amazing work. The pics are perfect and the post is fantastic. Toni Garrn wore it better. Kim and Gwyneth are not good at all with this dress. Kim is too curvy and Gwyneth is trying so hard to look young......
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog!!
Best Regards

Definitely vote for the model, followed by Gwyneth! But I don't think the dress flatters Kim or Gwyneth.

Girl Lilikoi said...

I think Toni Garrn wore it better. The dress is too long and complex, it need someone tall and slim to carry it so it is not too heavy. And Garnn hair style and make up is more suited for the romantic goth look

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

My vote's for Toni. She looks sleek and the dress fits her soooo well ... her midriff shows, but it seems perfect for her body. That same midriff-showing would be disastrous on the wrong body type! I like Kim but feel the dress looks a little as if it's bursting at the seams, her figure is so voluptuous. And Gwynneth ... just leaves me kind of neither here nor there, so my vote's for Toni! xoxo

Honestly, I really wanted to pick Gwenyth on this one, but I don't really like the Pucci dress on her. So I think I'll go with the model Toni.

Dominika said...

I simply adore Kim Kardashian and her sense of style- she didn't disappoint me this time either. She looked absolutely stunning in that dress, she had the curves to pull it off, whereas the same cannot be said about Gwyneth.

I think it looks good on them both.. but Kim does fill it out a bit more. Beautiful post, dear, as always!
Have a beautiful day. :)

Wil Harris said...

I think the skirt looks better on Kim Kardashian and the top looks better on Gwyneth Paltrow. On Kim, it looks like the top is too small and is meant to be longer and on Gwen the skirt looks like it will fall down when she walks.

Hello dear. I like Kim's dress. Kisses from Brazil ~.~

Toni wore it best!

Lolita in the Mix said...

If I have to choose, gwyneth, because she has lest chest and that makes it more elegant! But the model looks the best with it!

I like this dress on Kim and I'm glad that she chose not to show a lot of her mid drift.

Ember Drake said...

I definitely prefer this dress on Toni on the runway - but of the two celebs I agree with you that Kim looked better due to the smaller amount of midriff on show!

I obviously prefer the dress on Toni the supermodel, but they truly all look amazing in their own ways!

I gotta agree that Kim takes the cake here...which is something I never thought I'd say! She just managed to accessorize and hairstyle much better than Paltrow.

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

I have to say that this look is not my cup of tea, but if I have to choose I would go for Gwyneth as I agree with Alexandra that its silhouette suits better to less curvy bodies. Having said that, I really like the white Pucci ensemble that Eugenie Niarchos recently wore at Cannes!

Miška said...

I kinda like more how it looks on Gwyneth, but they both look great :)

Ivana said...

I really love that dress on Gwyneth, but Kim looks amazing too! I don't like the model too much: she's just too skinny for my taste! But it's such a wonderful ensemble!

And next up, Pigs are indeed flying! Seriously... this round goes to Kim. Never thought that would ever happen.

Teresa said...

i'll have to go with Gwyneth! i don't know, i think it is because she's slimmer and looks more high couture than on kim...

happy wednesday Sam!

I would say toni garnn... think the outfit suits her better...

Nicole said...

Gwyneth! :)

Lipgloss Kisses said...

Definitely Toni Garrn!

I watched Fashion Police when they had this dress on and I couldn't stop laughing at their comments. Joan Rivers said the dress looked better on Kim cause you could see the detail better cause it was so stretched on her due to her big bum. They also said that Gwyn didn't suit the dress - it's not her style.

Melina said...

Gwyneth!! love her!
