Who Wore Alice + Olivia SS13 Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Alice+ Olivia 'Marla' Dress

The popularity of Alice + Olivia's Spring 2013 collection is unparalleled. This much loved celebrity brand has been the leading choice for many smart-casual red carpet appearances. 
In this fashion face-off, we see four young starlets strike their best pose in the Alice + Olivia 'Marla' dress...but who comes out on top?


1. Taylor Swift was the first to debut the dainty metallic brushed ivory dress on the red carpet, back in October 2012. The country star looked poised, pairing it with satin Charlotte Olympia cat-face pumps. A heavy fringe, pulled back hair and red lipstick accompanied her outfit. Something about this look says 'ballerina'.
2. Sarah Hyland picked out the boat-neck dress for a charity event on 6th April 2013. The 'Modern Family' actress wore a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti bow-adorned peep-toes, and had her hair braided to the side.
3. Cheryl Burke of 'Dancing with the Stars' fame wore the classic cream frock with open back to a movie premiere on 22 April 2013. The professional dancer kept her locks sleek and straight and walked in gold metallic pumps.
4. McKaley Miller wore the exact same dress just a day after Cheryl, to the premiere of her new movie, 'The Iceman'. The young actress tried to give her outfit a more youthful styling with bright coral sandals by Marc by Marc Jacobs, and styled her hair in side-swept curls.

The 'Marla' dress by Alice + Olivia is currently available for $597


This is a classically elegant dress, and I think it's almost impossible to go wrong with it as a red carpet choice. Since the dress is quite similarly styled on all of them, it all comes down to the shoe. My favourite of the four has to be Taylor Swift, I loved the fit of the dress on her, as well as the matching shaded pumps. What are your thoughts?

Taylor Swift is so cute. I can say I like her style :)
Thank you so much for your lovely comment. It's one of my favourite dresses ;)

Cheryl Burke is cute wit her hair and the whole outfit but the dress isn't featured I think. McKaley Miller is just goooorgeous!!! I love how sophisticated she looks, red heels look great with that dress and her hair is really nice this way :) I love it!

Sakuranko said...

To me looks better Sara Hyland.

Cathy said...

I like Taylor's head to toe classic elegant look and McKaley's pop of red heel :)

I think taylor swifts charlotte olympia pumps really go with the dress. I think the dress itself sort of looks bland on all of them for some reason. black/ red does not do anything to the dress. I think putting the hair up made the look more put together as well.

Kacie Cone said...

It's such a cute dress on everyone! But I love the shoes taylor paired with it, they really go with the style of the dress!

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

I agree Sam, Taylor gets my vote, love her hair and shoe choice. GORGEOUS dress, that cut out back is delish, perfect for summer! Have a fantastic week hun!

I usually love Taylor Swift but I might have to go with the last two girls here. Something about the nice contrast of the darker hair with the light colored dress.

I think that you should wear the dress and Talylor Swift is wearing it and not the dress is wearing her. She looks chic.

Oh wow, this white Alice and Oliva dress is so pretty. (I really love a white dress, they seems so pretty and fresh compared to the more popular little black dresses.) The dress looks like it fits each lady pretty well and since they did all style it fairly similar, Id have to give my vote to Taylor as well. Are those kitties on her shoes? I keep looking back at the pictures and yes, it looks like there's kitty faces on her shoes! (Which is just freaking adorably and what a fun way to put a personal spin on the dress.)

FASHION TALES said...

I love the dress, and especially the way it looks on Cheryl Burke. :) xx/Madison

Josie said...

I'm not a fan of Taylor Swift but I agree, she does look the best! xxx

Daniella said...

Hi Sam, Aw that dress is so sweet! Unexpectedly I actually have to say that I love how Taylor Swift has worn it. The hair pulled back to show of that beautiful neckline it has, the red lip and the quirky Charlotte Olympia shoes all makes it appear that the stylist has actually bothered to style and compliment the dress, instead of just putting a pretty dress on her and leaving it at that. Great post honey :)

Take care and have a great week,
Daniella xox

Beauty Follower said...

I believe McKaley Miller did it!
many
kisses :)

Issa Tchieu said...

i would say Mckaley Miller, she was the only one with a elegant clutch that completes the look.

Stella said...

I like Taylor's version more!
Have a nice week Sam!

It's such a pretty, feminine dress but I agree with you - Taylor Swift would get my vote too. It fits so well and looks good with her hair colour and the toning shoes.
PS Thank you so much for your comment about the iconic dresses. You are absolutely right. Halle Berry's burgundy Elie Saab gown deserves to be included in a future book - so much detail. What a talented designer of dresses!

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Hope you have had a nice weekend dear! Mine was fine, though a bit of bad weather, hope it improves soon:) Love the feature of today since I love the brand too! Is a very nice dress, what I like best, beyond the color and the design, is the nice cut up on the back! It gives a sexy touch to an apparently regular model:) I agree with you, Taylor Swift wears it in the best way, she always looks stunning! Have a great week ahead my dear, thanks for your usual nice words! Hugs!:*

Pip said...

Cheryl Burke is my choice. Her skin tone compliments the color of the dress best. Nice dress and I love Alice and Olivia!!!! Xx. Pip

Natalia A said...

I think Taylor looks nice in it, but to be very honest, I don't find this dress particularly beautiful... There's just something missing to make it feel like a designer piece... It looks like something picked from ASOS or TopShop to me...

At first glance I thought I loved Mckalley Miller's look with the pop of color heels but then I really started to like the Taylor Swift version with the cheeky Charlotte Olympia heels!The hair and the lips make it a look I love.

In second place, though sort of simple, I'd say Cheryl Burke looks elegant and beautiful in her look.

Have a great week! Thank you too for your always thoughtful comments on my blog - I usually try to comment back on the blog but often I just visit yours and comment here because I'm visiting daily anyway!

I wish one of these girls would have shown the back of the dress because that is clearly the money shot. But I like the way Cheryl Burke is wearing it.

I like number 3 and 4 best because I didn´t like the dress with black shoes and I also think that Taylor Swifts hairdo doesn´t match as good as the other ladies´.

Jessi said...

Such a gorgeous dress! For me it's a tie between Taylor swift and McKaley. I like that McKaley was the only one who added a pop of color with her shoes, plus her hair is perfect with the style of the dress. And Taylor just pretty much looks good in everything :)

Definitely Taylor Swift. Her body shape is perfect for this style of dress.

Taylor... Not a fan of hers, but she def wore it best. LOL

Rebecca said...

I really love the dress and I think Taylor wore it best. I think the matching pumps are so amazing with the dress. The black shoes in one of the other looks is the worst!

Imogen said...

Taylor Swift. She convinced me with the shoes. I have a black version but I have always admired the white version even more.

Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

I have to say that I don't have a favorite. I think this is the kind of dress that is universally flattering (at least on these celebs).

Linda Greaves said...

Ah man, this dress is absolutely lovely. And I agree, I think Taylor knocked this one out of the park. It fits her style perfectly too

Taylor Swift! Looks the sweetest and kinda innocent.

I like it on Cheryl Burke, her shoes are matching, too, but I like the contrast to her hair and skin better.
