Who Wore Gucci Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Gucci Fall 2012 Gown

In this glamourous Gucci edition of 'Who Wore It Better', we have two international starlets wearing the same silk emerald green gown from the brand's Fall 2012 collection.

Natasha Poly was the first to wear this luxurious leopard-embossed gown with plunge-neck and high slit. The Russian supermodel commanded attention on the red carpet at this year's Cannes Film Festival, which was held in May. Her look was complimented by black and gold strappy sandals, also by Gucci.
Swedish actress Alicia Vikander picked out the same lush green Gucci wrap gown for the premiere of her new movie, 'Anna Karenina', held in London on 4th September. The 23-year old was perfectly poised in the silken gown, pairing it with a black clutch and peep-toe heels.
Model Yulia Kharlapanova, who is also of Russian descent, walks the Gucci runway for Fall 2012-13. She is styled with wine red lips, sheer black tights and ankle-strap sandals.

On the beauty front, Natasha was given an smouldering smokey eye, her entire eyelid precisely pencilled in with coal black eyeliner. She wore her hair back in a chic ponytail that only supermodels could pull off with an evening gown of this stature. And perhaps the most captivating part of her look are those dazzling diamond and emerald encrusted two-tone briolet earrings by de Grisogono.
Alicia wore a much more subtle version of the smokey eye, her hair elegantly pulled up in a volumized pouf with side-swept fringe and clipped-in waves.

Who wore it better? It's fascinating how the same dress takes a different style stance depending on the wearer. Natasha makes it seem fiercely sexy with her Angelina-inspired leg poses, while Alicia keeps it demurely distinguished. I think both these ladies look exceptionally stunning and completely outshine the runway model, but Alicia wins it for me - I loved how she gracefully transformed this look from sensual to sweet. What are your thoughts?

I love the gown's rich emerald green color. I think Natasha wore it best but I think she would look even better if she wore the model's deep lipstick.

Oh Natasha without a doubt. She is killing it!

Paris said...

I am in love with this dress! I honestly love both their looks so much but the smoldering smokey eye and flash of leg from Natasha gets my vote since that is exactly how I would wear it!
Sorry I have been so mia Sam. I definitely will be going through all of my favorite blogs (like yours), just not quite as often as I'd like too since I want to finish my MA sooner!

Francesca. said...

Ahh, this dress is divine, nothing's more glamourous than a good jewel-tone, and the shade of green is perfect for rocking the red carpet AND the runway. I have to admit, I don't know much about Alicia Vikander, but she certainly stole the show in this dress xx

Adeola Naomi said...

Natasha is Spectacular in this gorgeous emerald dress by far!!!!

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

I agree Sam, I vote Alicia! I do like Natasha's look too, but the eye make up is way too much for me - really prefer the more subtle take on the smokey eye.

What an INSANELY divine dress too! If only I could get my hands on one of these for the wedding, haha. In my dreeeeams...

Have a fabulous week dear!xo

Elle Sees said...

notasha! And thanks for your sweet comment

fluff and fripperies said...

For me it is definitely Natasha! xo

Denise said...

I was going to say that both wore it in a beautiful way, but somehow I prefer the way Alicia did - I don't really like the "leg exposure"... then I saw the hairstyle and makeup. In this part I prefer Natasha, classy, elegant... although Alicia looks sweet, more the way I would have worn makeup. I think both were lovely!

Sandra Leiva said...

Natasha Poly is my favourite, she looks amazing! <3

daggistr said...

Natasha - The Best <3 ! Your blog is great ! ...would You like to follow each other ? just let me know :)


Xixia said...

Ooh, I actually don't know either of these stars, but they're both beautiful. I think I prefer Alicia's look, though. Her darker coloring fits the green so well, and I like that her make-up is more subtle.

Jacy said...

Wow, what an awesome dress - and SO Gucci! I love it on Natasha Poly!! I'm obsessed with her anyways though.



DORIS said...

I think they both look very pretty in that dress.


Jo said...

I do not know these stars and even though both carried off the dress well in their own style, I very much prefer Alicia's style. The dress itself is very bold and Alicia's soft looks and hairdo seem to balance the outfit well.

Natasha's look is a killer too but there is too much boldness in it.

Nicole said...

Hope you're well Sam :) loving all your posts!

nini said...

hello doll!
I would say Natasha , she is sexifying the dress big time!

Margaret Cruzemark said...

The Clothierin said...

I think that Natasha represents the type of Gucci girl as well. Alicia is rather the Marc Jacobs type.
