Who Wore Chanel Stripes Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Chanel Pre-Spring 2013 Jumpsuit

Keeping in with striped trend, this version of 'Who Wore It Better' pits 6 international starlets against each other in an epic styling battle of Chanel. The outfit in question is a black and white striped strapless jumpsuit from Chanel's Pre-Spring 2013 collection. A difficult silhouette for anyone to wear, this one ought to be interesting...

1. Fashion stylist Caroline Sieber took a casually elegant approach to styling her jumpsuit, wearing it with a sleek black buttoned jacket, tote bag and wide-brimmed fedora.
2. British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kept her look minimalistic chic, adding a long layered pearl necklace and a Chanel 'Lego' clutch bag to her jumpsuit. This fitted bodice with wide-leg silhouette is ideally tailored to her model height and figure.
3. Chinese model Sui He went geometric by pairing her vertically striped jumpsuit with a sheer black horizontally striped top, creating a checkered effect. Red heels finalized Sui's outfit.

4. Chinese beauty Janice Man flaunted her sophisticated styling of the striped jumpsuit, pairing it with an oversized black blazer and gold & black necklaces. 
5. 12-year-old Willow Smith had the monochromatic jumpsuit resized to her small waist size but the pants don't have the same streamlined effect as it does on the others. A cropped leather biker jacket, black bowler hat & spiked PVC Louboutin pumps complete her edgy look.
6. Miley Cyrus looked sleek in the linear leg-lengthening ensemble, opting for simple styling with a gold collar necklace and bright red lips.

Who Wore It Better? 

I like the gracefulness Rosie brought to the jumpsuit, the fit is perfect on her. But I have to go with Caroline as my top pick, as I preferred her perceptive and contemporary styling. She transformed this piece into so much more than just a striped jumpsuit. 
What are your thoughts?

I see jumpsuits every where this summet.. Even I liked Caroline's look the most.

Peet said...

I really like Sui He's outfit! That horizontal striped top gave the vertical striped suit so much dimension - you get the three prints! That's really clever actually...:)

I have to say Willow looks horrible, at first I was confused because I thought it was her brother wearing a jumpsuit. Apart from her, everyone styled it in an amazing way, but I think Janice wins. :)

Sui and Rosie are my favs :)

Hi Sam! The Chanel jumpsuit is really cool but I think is pretty hard to style perfectly cause the stripes! I agree with your thoughts, Rosie wears it in a very graceful way! I like also Caroline, you are right, she added something more to the jumpsuit with the blazer and the hat, but I also like Janice and the long blazer she matched! Kisses dear, have a great day! xo

Annette Brennan said...

Great post!

Imogen said...

Rosie. It's a unique piece so I like the way she just focused on that and showed it off.

These photos just show how an item of clothing can be interpreted in so many ways with the addition of different acessories etc. I like Caroline's look - she manages to look stylish yet relaxed.
PS Thank you so much for your comment about the play. I've been away for a few days so I'm just enjoying catching up on your posts!

Caroline rocked it for me, the rest I am not sure but the worst look was willow.

Heidi-likes said...

I love how Miley wore it - but they all look gorgeous :) x


Pip said...

Sui He wore it best in my eyes! I really like the sheer top over the jumpsuit and feel like it toned down the crazy look a bit compared to the others. Nice post as usual! xx Pip

Carmen said...

I think that Sui He looked best because she didn´t "hide" the jumpsuit and yet knew what to add not to look too much "all over". However I think that Willow Smith looks quite awkward with shoes that are not her age and with a jacket that accentuates her child-body. She looks more like a strange doll than like an elegant Chanel lady.

Gemma T said...

For me it would have to be Rose everytime.. she always looks amazing! What the hell does Willow Smith look like? Awful :/ xxx

I usually don't fall for trends, so you won't be seeing me in pastel, neon or something like that. But stripes! OMG, I ADORE stripes... This is one fantastic piece of jumpsuit, and I go for Rosie, she just looks stunning. Ilina

I love the way Sui He wears it. The transparent top makes it so interesting. I think that is the best combination.

I arrived! In one piece :) Very tired, but OK. So now I say that Caroline looks really elegant and beautiful. And that's it - the others didn't reach the same elegant effect, in my opinion!

Ooh love it, great post Sam. I think I'll have to go with Rosie - love the look kept simple and her hair looks lovely here. Think Caroline/Willow have picked better jackets - that oversize one on Janice kinda swallows up the lines of the jumpsuit. Gorgeous piece anyway, loving the stripes!

Hiya dear, I think my favourite is with Rose Huntington-Whiteley and Sui He, I love the black sheer overlay. xx/Madison

Ivana said...

Oh wow, another piece of clothing I absolutely love on everyone else, but can't pull off myself :) This jumpsuit is a stunner, Karl can do no wrong in my book, and stripes are my all-time favorites. I love how each lady styled it in her own, unique way. Rosie is so graceful and glamorous, but I think Sui is my favorite, because her outfit is both toned down and fabulous. I love the top she threw over the jumpsuit and the pop of color in her shoes. She looks fabulous!

How are you, sweetie? It's been forever, I know :) I hope everything's fine with you!

Sending you lots of love,

xx Ivana

I like Caroline's elegant and nautical take to this. It just looks so much more attainable and chic with that coat

katie said...

Ooooh, I was actually wondering if you wear going to do a post on this jumpsuit! I saw it on Miley and then a few others and it's such a interesting item, I was so curious to see how they all stacked up against each other. (It's a pretty challenging suit to wear, the silhouette with the stripes, yikes! Maybe only for the vertically gifted?)

I think out of all of them, Caroline wore it the best. She stylized it in a way that felt really true as to what she likes to wear and she made the jumpsuit actually look wearable! I love it with the blazer and the floppy hat, it's quite sharp looking! I hate to do it, but Will Smith is my worst dressed pick of this one, the portions of her jacket seem so off, I don't think that jacket can even zip. (And what in the world did she do to her pretty hair?)

Ana said...

I like so much the jumpsuit!!


Vanessa Pur said...

Caroline No. 1 is my favourite! Love the way she styled the stripes!
