Who Wore Roland Mouret Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Roland Mouret Spring 2012 Herbert Dress

French designer Roland Mouret is well known for his curve-hugging dresses with impeccable pencil skirts that flatter the female form. It's no wonder that five different celebrities picked out the exact same dress from his Spring 2012 collection. The colour-block dress features an ivory crepe wool off-the-shoulder top with folded neckline and nude grosgrain straps, a black tie-up belt and red plissé pencil skirt.

1. The first to put on the dress was Amy Adams back in November 2011. The red-haired actress looked graceful with side swept hair, opting to tie the belt to the back. She added the illusion of length with nude Jimmy Choo 'Anouk' pumps, which also complimented the straps.
2. Lifetime host Amanda de Cadenet wore the 'Herbert' dress in April 2012 for an InStyle event. Changing it up a bit, Amanda's dress had black shoulder straps. She stepped out in a pair of three bow-strapped 'Miss Butterfly' sandals by Christian Louboutin. I don't think this dress was the right fit for her.
3. Canadian actress Sarah Gadon wore the fitted frock for the 'Cosmopolis' photocall in Cannes during May of this year. The petite actress kept it simple with black peep-toe sandals, messy waves and a gold cuff. The dress is slightly looser on her.
4. 58-year-old actress Christie Brinkley proved that she looks just as good as any 25-year-old in the shapely dress. She chose this look for the Broadway Beacon Awards held in early June 2012. Seventies style hair and bold orange sandals complete her outfit.
5. Finally, the Mouret dress had another showing at the movie premiere of 'Ted' last month. Model Rhea Durham (the wife of Mark Wahlberg) looked stunning in the color-block frock, she dressed it up with a black clutch and satin and lace slingbacks by Christian Louboutin.


Polish beauty Jac Jagaciak modeled the popular dress for Roland Mouret's Spring 2012 show. It was paired with chunky wooden platform sandals on the runway.

As for Who Who It Better...I am wavering between the elegant Amy Adams and lovely Rhea Durham. Amy's choice of nude heel was spot on and Rhea gave it that glamourous model touch. What are your thoughts?

this is a very flattering dress! the pencil skirt is great for the female figure but to be honest, the shape is not really appropriate for more voluptuous girls like Amanda. the pencil skirt should be on more slim girls and Christie looks amazing in it from that angle! :)

Definitely Rhea Durham in this case, she looks absolutely beautiful! I also like this dress on Monika Jagaciak, it's hard to believe that she's one week younger than me... she looks so mature!

I have to go with the runway model wearing it the best. It looks awkward on some of the others.

I think Amy Adams wore it best. The fit is perfect, the belt without the bow makes it less busy and more simple, and the heels and strap color were complamentory.

Ivana said...

Amy and Rhea are my faves, they wore it with such an incredible confidence! And how beautiful is that dress in general? I think I'm obsessed :)

Denise said...

I also think Amy Adams... but I liked 4 of them, except number 2. I like red very much you know, and black and white together make this dress really exquisite!
Hope you had a great weekend!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I have to give this one to Marky Mark's wife Rhea Durham because her body shape and skin tone work the best with this Roland Mouret dress. And she is wearing the right shoes too!

Elle Sees said...

I can't decide!
