Who Wore Stella McCartney Better?

Who Wore It Better?
The Stella McCartney Edition

It's no secret that Stella McCartney has a huge celebrity and supermodel following. Affirming her vast influence and credibility in the industry, Stella received the 'Designer of the Year' award last month at the 2012 British Fashion Awards. This special Stella edition of 'Who Wore It Better' compares a few looks worn and re-worn by the designer's fashion devotees.

Round One
Naomi Harris donned this ornately embroidered blue, white and black dress from Stella McCartney's Fall/Winter 2012 collection. The Skyfall actress wore the same croc embossed ankle boots as shown on the runway.
Arizona Muse most recently wore the impressive dress, for a charity event this week. The supermodel styled her look with sheer black tights, sparkly peep-toe sandals and a matching blue clutch bag.
On the runway, Australian model Shanina Shaik shows off the long-sleeved, high neck dress.

Verdict: I prefer the more simpler styling and lack of tights, so I am going with Naomie Harris in this round.

Round 2
Placing two supermodels up against each other in the same dress isn't an easy choice. Karlie Kloss and Kate Moss were both spotted in this figure-flattering little black Stella McCartney dress, which features sheer nude side panels. Kate wears hers with black Christian Louboutin heels, white Karlie opts for strappy sandals. Karlie's dress has been customized to a longer length with velvet inserts added to the see-through sides.

Verdict: I have to go with the original supermodel on this one, Kate Moss. This dress looks much better as a mini and more provocative with the sheer panelling.

Round 3
Stella McCartney battles it out with two other British dames in the same Fall 2012 ensemble, which includes a sporty fit-and-flaired studded skirt with matching black and blue neoprene scuba-style top. Stella, singer Louise Rednapp and cyclist Victoria Pendleton all opted to wear the same pair of two-tone platform pumps as seen on the runway.

Verdict: Besides for the fit being impeccable on runway model Daria Strokous, I have to pick Louise from the three ladies, the outfit is most flattering on her.

Round 4
UK actress Gemma Arterton wears a menswear inspired jumpsuit from Stella McCartney's Fall Evening 2012 collection. Silver holographic sling-back wedges (from Stella McCartney's Resort 2013 collection) accompany her chic look.
Shailene Woodley was the first to wear this sophisticated black tux suit with plunge neck, pairing it with ankle-strap sandals, which are also by Ms McCartney.
In the Lookbook, veteran model Amber Valletta showed off the prim and polished jumpsuit with ankle-strap pumps and a metallic clutch.

Verdict: It's obvious that Amber with her modelesque height and figure wears this jumpsuit with finesse. However I do like the fit on Shailene...but Gemma's holographic heels are something truly fresh and futuristic. I'm on the fence here.

I'd love to hear your verdicts on who you think wore these Stella McCartney looks better.

Bravoe Runway said...

I agree with you on all your picks...ESP the one with Kate moss. That dress looks much better as a mini..and the jumpsuit looks awesome on amber.

Lilli said...

Hi Sam! My verdict: so agreed with yours lol! Round one love Naomi, round 2 Kate, round 3 Louise and round 4 Amber!:) Great post dear, the first dress is also my fav! Love the colors and the rich pattern! Kisses and have a good day!:*

Gina said...

Hey Sam! For round one definitely Shanina. Round 2, Kate. Round 3,Daria. Round 4, Shailene.

Hope you're having a great week!
XO, Gina

Kashaya said...

I think round one Naomi, round 2 Kate, Round 3 Louise and round 4 Shailene

Daniella said...

Sam I love this post, like many others, Stella McCartney is a favourite of mine! Naomi Harris wins round 1 in my opinion, in round 2 undoubtedly Kate moss, one of my favourite looks from her. Round 3 is between Stella McCartney herself and the Runway model and then round 4 is a little to difficult, they all look amazing! :)

Take care,

Daniella xox

Beatrice Anne said...

Real College Student of Atlanta said...

great comparison post!!

Nicoleta_B said...

Well, Naomi Harris is awesome. Love that dress :D

Have great day,


Always Maylee said...

I totally agree with your picks, except the first one I might go with Shanina, only because I think the dress looks better with the hair pulled back and leaving the neckline more obvious. :)

I love the dress in round 2. Simple and very pretty. Stella is definitely one to be reckoned with. As far as overcoming shyness on the web, think small or bits n pieces. Some bloggers only show from the neck down. Some only show their face. Do what you feel comfortable with. You're a pretty girl! Would love to see more of you!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Karlie Kloss looks great and probably would have looked better from another angle. Stella McCartney looks great in her own design!

My fav is Shanina, but even Daria looks stunning!
Well, of course, they're models!^^

Kati said...

Kate Moss just always looks fantastic!

Denise said...

Oh, promised an email, and here I am busy like hell - Thursday tomorrow, you know... well, first round - the model. But if I have to pick one, then Arizona Muse. The boots Naomi wore stand out and the dress made her big head stand out as well... anyway... 2nd round: Karlie looks classier, but the dress stands out on Kate. Though if we are really honest, her legs are not beautiful, knees are something that are seldom nice.
3rd round: Louise Rednapp and the model. Louise's legs are fit for such a dress.
4th round: the model only. Amber rocks it! But if I have to pick one, I'd choose Shailene. With closed toed-shoes would be better, though.
All in my opinion, of course, who am I to judge!
I read your other posts, soooo nice! I hoe I fixed that molesting soon, I lost my will of using the computer and it's not OK!
Hope you are fine!

Antonella C'est moi said...

kate moss.she is fab kisses

Fashionthrougthravel said...

I really couldn't decide who wore it better! All the models look so gorgeous in those designs, I would probably choose them as a whole compared to the rest of the celebrities :)

Sandra Leiva said...

Karlie Kloss looks amazing!

Rikki said...

Audrey Allure said...

Silvia Postolatiev said...

by Veronica Varetta said...

Vannessa@Luxuria said...

Elsha said...

I love it when they pull their hair up, especially with those high necklines! Makes everything so elegant

BELULOVE said...

i am following u now!!!! prefer the first then the second and first!! ♥♥

Well... said...

Oh man...another tough round to judge...I love them all!
But okay, here's my call.
Round 1: Shanina - the black shoes go better with it in my opinion. And yes, I agree, lack of tights is best!
Round 2: I agree, Kate Moss rocked that sexy dress
Round 3: Stella - all because I like it when the hair is pulled back, especially with such a high neckline.
Round 4: I'm just as stuck as you are...haha, although I really like how Shailene pulled it off. I'll have to go with her look.

Punctuation Mark said...

Love Gemma... She always looks amazing!!!

Elizabeth {Ms Classic Glamour} said...

I have to agree with you on all of these, Sam! I would choose Gemma on the last one. I feel the plunging neckline is a little too mature for Shalaine.
Great post as always!

Elizabeth {Ms Classic Glamour} said...


Ileana said...

Oh my! nº2 and nº3 are fantastic!!! Impossible to pick a better one when they have such an amazing dress on!

Josie said...

Shanina for the first look because she's so stunning, Kate Moss because she is Kate Moss, Stella because it's nice to see her in a dress and finally Gemma because she wore THE SHOES. xxx

le rockandrouge said...

They all look good in Stella! I especially love the last dress. Thanks for posting the spread and feel free to drop by me too when you have time.

Rahul Bhatia said...

I go with your choices, Sam for this visual delight of a post:)

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Ha, how funny, I totally agree with you on #1, #2 and #3 - think that's the first time that's happened! For #4 I'm going to have to go with Shailene I think - I'm not a big fan of crazy ass futuristic shoes.

By the by, I'm loving all the outfits, so stylish, except what the frig is up with #3??? I think I just don't know enough about fashion, but to me it looks like something you'd go scuba diving in...? I guess that's the beauty of the fashion industry - it caters to all different tastes, right?

Megan, said...

i seriously need all of these in my closet, they all look gorgeous.

now following, thanks for the inspo!
Xo Megan,

My picks are: Shanina, Kate Moss, Daria, Shailene. Stella is such a talented designer and I like that she uses the woman's body and curves as inspiration.

Laura said...

I love Stella McCratney!:)

Ember Drake said...

My votes definitely go to: Shanina Shaik (the no tights look is much better!), Karlie Kloss and Daria Strokous.

But for Round 4 I'm torn too (Gemma or Amber - I just can't choose a favourite!)


Fashion-Bridge said...

Mmm, it's always so difficult to choose. You feature such fabulous ladies in your posts:)
I think I'll go like this:
1)Naomi Harris
2)Karlie Kloss (she's stunning;)
3)the one and only Stella McCartney
4)Shailene Woodley (I love her:)



Jessica said...

Round 1 Shanina
Round 2: Kate

Katie Q. said...

I love Stella M. designs, I'd have to say that her and Victoria B. are two of my favorite designers right now, their clothes usually look amazing on women's bodies.

The last look is actually my very favorite with the vest and sleek trousers combination, it's just killer and very vavavoom looking. (I love it on all of the ladies, but Gemma looks amazing in it, her figure is to die for. and i really love how she styled her hair.) I think the only look I'm not really a fan of is the scuba dress, the texture of the dress paired with the fit just seems really off. Or maybe its that they ALL wore the same pair of shoes. (Maybe another pair of shoes could have made this work, this shoes pairing is just really blah for me. I think the model probably work it best, it seems like the dress is more fitted on her.)
I always love this "who wore it best" posts from you, you always have such thoughtful reason for why the looks work and I've learned about new designers from you!

Little Rus said...

It was a beautiful collection. As far as the best dressed list goes, for me it's Naomi, Karlie, Daria and Amber. :)
