Who Wore It Better - The AnnaSophia Robb Edition

Who Wore Alice + Olivia Better?
The AnnaSophia Robb Edition

You may recognize AnnaSophia Robb as the breakout star of TV's newest fashion-frenzied series, 'The Carrie Diaries'. Playing a young Carrie Bradshaw, the 19-year old actress has displayed a flair for style on-screen & on the red carpet. AnnaSophia has a longstanding appreciation for design label Alice + Olivia, as seen in this edition of 'Who Wore It Better?'

Round 1
* AnnaSophia films an episode of 'The Carrie Diaries' wearing a charming watercolour printed dress with A-line skirt. Her eye-catching ensemble has been styled with a floral denim jacket, cerise pink belt, turquoise tulle underskirt and pastel shaded Giuseppe Zanotti slingbacks.
TV actress Sami Gayle wears the same embellished collared Alice + Olivia dress with matching belt, accessorized with an orange reptile clutch and winsome heart-print heels.
In the Alice+Olivia lookbook, the dress is kept consistent with matching pastel printed shoes.

The Verdict: I love this dress as it has been simply styled on the model, but I also admire the creativity and multi-shaded styling on AnnaSophia. That's a look made only for the fashionable thrill of TV, (and perhaps New York Fashion Week).

 Round 2
Smash star Megan Hilty wears a lace bodice dress from Alice + Olivia's Fall 2012 collection with burgundy pumps, also by the brand.
AnnaSophia Robb was spotted in the same black and white peplum dress. Her choice of black flat Salvatore Ferragamo pumps were a bit puzzling to me.
* Heiress Lydia Hearst showed off her modelesque height in the same cocktail dress, opting to style it with a cutesy black hat and pumps by Alice + Olivia.
* On the model, the dress was shown with a black skinny belt and sheer yoke.

The Verdict: My vote goes to the model, the dress needed the definition of a belt and also the sheer yoke makes the beautiful lace detailing more prominent.

Round 3

AnnaSophia was delightful in a black, green and pink floral print dress with halter straps from Alice + Olivia's previous Spring collection. She added a stunning pair of Yves Saint Laurent metallic gold and black T-Bar strappy sandals.
* Modern Family's Ariel Winter was also seen in the same frilled bottom dress, stepping out in black pumps and an enchanted braided halo hairstyle.
* The model's dress has been fitted with a wide leather belt and nude wedge platforms.

The Verdict: I am on the fence here...I liked Ariel's adorable hairstyle, but I also think that AnnaSophia's heels were the perfect shoe choice. Any thoughts?

 Round 4
Holland Roden was captivating in a romantic white feathered frock from Alice + Olivia's Spring 2013 collection. The 'Teen Wolf' star was accessorized with gold Jerome C. Rousseau sandals, a white leather clutch bag and bold red lipstick.
* We recently saw AnnaSophia Robb wear the same lace embroidered white dress just last week. Her dreamy look was styled with silver Stuart Weitzman pumps.
* The dress is just as magical in the lookbook, worn with leather cut-out sandals.

The Verdict: I prefer AnnaSophia in this dress, the fit is better on her and I like the more subtle makeup. It's the type of dress that looks splendidly pretty on all three.

I would love to hear your verdicts on 'Who Wore It Best' in each round.

Love the first and the second dress. I find that these dresses are perfect on AnnaSophia Robb. She's very nice. I like her very much.


Menos es más said...

2º, 2º, 3º y 3º jaja por ese orden!!!!


Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Thanks a lot for your nice comment, always appreciate it:) Could you believe that in all the rounds my preference goes to AnnaSophia?!:) She is a very nice and lovely girl, everything suits great on her! Still havent watched the show but I will do soon! Regarding the dresses, the last one is my fav!:) Kisses and hugs dear! xo

fatin hasado said...

Round 3 is the only one I like on her! Gorgeous figure though!!

Bee-dee said...

Came here before, there wasn't this nice post yet - so good I came again, I knew you would write one - my intuition! Rounds 1 and 4, for me was better oon AnnaSophia, but rounds 3 and 4 on the model - I love belts!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

ASR is really cute and I like that her style is playful and modern which suits her young age. I agree with you that she totally rocks the 1st and last looks.

Anthea F said...

love the first dress!

Dominika said...

1. My vote goes to the model.
2. Megan Hilty, I love the accessories she chose to go with the dress :)
3. It was so hard for me to choose, but I think I'd go for the model, minus the belt and maybe a different hairstyle.
4. Definitely the model, she looks stunning in this dress!

I love this round of Who Wore It Better, such amazing picks :) x

Jacy said...

I like how she styled the 3rd dress without a belt...I think the belt may date it a little and I liked her hair down! The other ones I'm on the fence about...she looks great in every look though!


PS ~ thank you for your kind words and encouragement! I'm glad to hear the 4-ways posts are something unique, and I think it's definitely something I'll continue to do for awhile!

Elle Sees said...

She's got style! I remember when she was little in movies!!!

Mary M. said...

I love this post so much and that you chose the star from 'The Carrie Diaries' I'm loving this show so much at the moment!

Have an amazing week,

Daniella said...

Hi Sam, I love it when you do these posts, so much fun playing a judge :D Round1. to be honest I don't like the dress or any of the ways it's been worn. Round 2. Lydia Hearst is rocking that dress, so she gets my vote, Round 3. I really like how Annasophia Robb looks in the dress and the hair, shoes and make up look great. Round 4. again I like how Annasophie Robb has styled hers but I also think Holland Roden looks really quite chic. :)

Take care sweetie,
Daniella xox

I actually think AnnaSophia nailed it on all of these! She's just adorable.

All look great. Have a nice day.

Alexa said...

I love Anna Sophia Robb! She is the cutest and I'm obsessed with the Carrie Diaries which is why Im really partial to the way she wore the first dress! It's just so fun and adorable! For the second look, I'd have to say I really like the way the model looks in it. I think the belt is really cute! but again Anna Sophia looks adorable in everything. For the third look, I'm really digging how Ariel Winter rocked it. She is adorable as well. I also like the model's look because the belt adds a fun touch! and for the last one, I like how cute it is on Anna Sophia but I'm not exactly sure how I feel about the dress! haha hope you're having a great week Sam <3

Alexa <3

Je ne sais quoi said...

Hey doll! loving this game hehe so here we start
round 1 : defintitely annasophia, she gave the dress what it deserves, fun , colors and playfulness! that denim jacket is the best accessory she could have added as well as the rainbow shoes! just loving her look along with her hair it's so carrie!
round 2: annasophia wins again, that dress wants a subtle hairdo , to emphasize on the shoulders details well all of the torso detail, i loved how she pulled it off with that neglige.
round 3: ok and round 4: she won the jackpot annasophia, she is absolutely stunning in that floral dress, her shoes are the perfect choice and perfefct color and her hair is the way it should be natural. as for the last look well she looks angelic and the dress fits her impeccably however i would have gone with a different shoes , she should have chosen let's say girly glittery pump!

Well... said...

Here's my breakdown:
1) That dress is so gorgeous, but I feel its overdone with all the accessories and mixed prints done by AnnaSophia and Sami. I like how it looks in the Lookbook - pretty and simple. They let the dress take center stage.
2) I agree, the belt was needed to add that finishing touch! So model wins
3) Eep, so cute! I love this floral dress. AnnaSophia wins this round for me :)
4) I can't decide...all I know is that this dress is just so pretty *_*

Hello sweetie,

I find this kind of posts really entertaining, hihihi.

I like Anna Sophia Robb acting, but I don't know if I am ready to accept Carrie's diary as a prequel to one of my all time favorite shows, Sex and the city. Time will tell..

About the dresses. I absolutely adore the last one, the white dress. I loved how it looked on Anna, and in the lookbook.

Wish you a lovely day!

This is very difficult, let see...

1) The last girl
2) The last or second to last
3) I would say the first maybe the second
4) The last and maybe the first

I love "The Carrie Diaries"! It's not the same as "Sex and the City", but it's fun to watch nonetheless. I actually love to watch it for the sake of "Sex and the City", and for the sake of Carrie Bradshaw, who is my favorite character ever. :)
Enjoy the rest of your week my dear!

These outfits are all divine!! I'd never heard of this label, might have to take a closer look...

So, my votes go to: AnnaSophia (love the look with her blonde hair, and that aqua underskirt thingy is awesome!), Lydia, Ariel (loving the hair styling) and AnnaSophia (gorgeous pumps). Fun post Sam!!

Joyce said...

All these dresses are so gorgeous! For the first round, I like how the model wore it. In the second round, I also like how the model wore it because of the pretty sheer top part. The third round, I like how Ariel wore it and in the fourth round, I think all of them wore it. Or haha maybe I just really like the dress!

Round one: Sami Gayle
Round two: Lydia Hearst
Round three: Ariel Winter
Round four: AnnaSophia Robb
AnnaSophia Robb looks great in all of the dresses but sometimes I didn´t like how she combined them ;)

Imogen said...

The first dress is particularly stunning. I love how many different ways it can be worn like with the netting underneath. My favourite look here is Ariel Winter. What a gorgeous dress. She always amazes me, I am continually drawn to her looks.

Issa Tchieu said...

Kacie Cone said...

Oh my gosh I love how Anna Sophia Rob wore it, that is so cute even if its not for this decade haha
for round 2 and 3 I actually like it on the model, maybe it's just the belts but they adds to the dresses! And the last dress is stunning on all of them, wish it was mine haha

Katie Q. said...

Oh, I just really like how AnnaShopia's look came out, it's really different from the model's look and the other styling and I love how full the skirt looks with the petticoat underneath. It's really fun and different.
Round 2, I give it to the model, just because of the belt. the belt makes a world of a difference and pulls the whole look together, it looks just a little bit awkward without it.
Round 3 is a tie between Ariel and the model. Ariel looks adorable with her styling and I just really like the overall styling on the model. I think the dress looks just a little boring without the straps in the first photo.
Ha, number four goes to the model again! (I guess the models win this time around!) The model's simple ponytail just makes the difference for me.

StaceyKo said...

Wow! I'm so in love with Alice+Olivia dress! *_*


Adrielle said...

Round 1: AnnaSophia looks amazing, but it's not really suitable for real life
Round 2: I like the add of the burgundy shoes, but the dress definitely needs a belt to emphasize the waist
Round 3: Same thing here with the belt
Round 4: I think it's the kind of dress to be worn with sandals, and not with shiny silver closed shoes like AnnaSophia
This is my opinion!
Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Anonymous said...

I must say that AnnaSophia knows how to pull off the looks! First time I hear about her.


Beauty Follower said...

In the first occasion the model did, lol :)
In the round 3, AnnaSophia looks nice.
Round 4: AnnaSophia Robb is so cute!
