Who Wore H&M Better?

Who Wore It Better?
H&M Conscious Collection
Spring 2013 dress

I love seeing celebrities wear something other than designer dresses on the red carpet. It shows humility on their path, and it also proves that a cheaper chain store brand can look just as good as any ten thousand dollar ensemble. 

In this edition of 'Who Wore It Better', we see two young starlets wear the same ruby red cocktail dress from H&M's Spring 2013 Conscious Collection. The dress forms part of the Swedish brands' eco-friendly range of party wear, that offers sustainable fashion using organic and recycled materials.

* Swedish beauty Alicia Vikander looks radiant in the red fitted dress, which is laden with delicate rose appliqués. The 24-year-old Anna Karenina actress wore the frock earlier this year to the Swedish Film Awards. She accessorized with a gold Chanel clutch bag & black sandals.
* Teen actress Chloe Moretz looked endearing in the rosy red dress during Paris Fashion Week, opting to style her ensemble with nude ankle strap sandals.
* In the H&M Spring 2013 lookbook, the romantic red dress was shown with a beautiful matching floral netted fascinator.

This dress is currently available at H&M stores for $129.

As for 'Who Wore It Better?', I love the styling on the model, but from the celebrities, I would have to pick Alicia Vikander, I think the dress fits her better, although I would've preferred a more exciting pair of shoes. It does look lovely on Chloe too, but I think it is a little aging for a girl of only 16. What are your thoughts?

Lilli said...

Hi Sam! The dress is really great, love the color and the details on the top! I think that my verdict is the same of yours, I also love how Alicia wears it, but also preferred another choice of shoes, maybe something in gold! Kisses dear, have a nice day! xo

Adrielle said...

Hi, Sam!Thanks for your nice comment!
I think that Alicia looks better.
Have a great day!

Danny said...

I can't decide, both look amazing!

I really like the way Alicia wears this beautiful dress. Have a nice day.


Adeola Naomi said...

Hello sweetie!
For me I will rather the lookbook, something in both looks is not clicking with me.
Hope you are having a lovely day!

Bee-zee said...

Guess what, as I told you, I was on scheduled posts, having the computer repaired... had no idea we would post same kind of content, but different dresses, thank God! You know I do the Words of Wisdom on Mondays because I like Friday Frills on Friday, as the name says, and wouldn't write quotes on the same day! Anyway, sorry for that :) Aaaand, about the dress, I also like when I see actresses wearing high street fashion. Now I have to say the model looks better - but between the two actresses, Alicia Vikander then. Same opinion, we are the same solar sign :)

S said...

I prefer Alicia too!
Love to see even celebrities wear low cost branded clothes!^^

Such a gorgeous dress! I actually love it on all three! It's just such a flattering dress.

AlittlebitUnique said...

That dress is absolutely gorgeous and actually looks much more expensive than $120, I agree it is a bit aging for a 16 year old, but still looks fab

Yay, love this post, Sam! It is refreshing to see something else than big designer names on the red carpet. This dress is really beautiful, I would never have guessed that it is H&M! And it looks beautiful on all three of them, I can't even pick the favorite :)

The philosophy behind the Conscious collection is great. The dress is lovely and all three ladies wear it well but I'm leaning towards the look book version cause I just love that fascinator.

Stephanie said...

Wow I can't believe this dress is H&M!


Punctuation Mark said...

That Swedish girl looks fantastic... She was great on a royal affair!

Gina said...

Gorgeous dress and it does look gorg on both girls. I would say it fits Alicia's body type better, but I prefer Chloe's shoe choice. I think neutral pumps compliment this dress better.

XO, Gina

Zahra Sandberg said...

I agree with you - i like it on ALicia better but the shoes are too boring. She would have done well to wear the nude pumps, the teen could and should have tried a fun contrasting color or print.

I too love seeing celebrities wearing the occasional 'normal' clothes.



Marie Martell said...

Hey Sam! Hope your having a good day! I have to be honest, I don't like this dress at all :( The color is beautiful and If I had to choose the model wore it best. Love the hair down with the pretty hat.

xo Marie

Miu said...

Definitely Alicia Vikander!
I neither like Chloe's shoes nor her hair style.

Rakhshan said...

Alicia Vikander wore it better for me, don't like Chloe's hair! the color of the dress is so beautiful! x
