Who Wore Christian Dior Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Christian Dior
FW12 Pink Midi Dress

I thought we had seen the last of Christian Dior's pink midi FW12 dress, but turns out, this lace & chiffon stunner had one more outing to make. Already worn four times before on the red carpet, this fluorescent pink Dior dress is proving to be look that's well worth recycling.


Canadian model Kate King walked the Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2012 runway in this ravishing watermelon pink dress, along with nude ankle-strap shoes.



1. Actress Krysten Ritter was the first to wear the lace long-sleeved Dior frock. Krysten went the risqué route and kept the skirt sheer. I wish she had lined her dress, as the black knickers are quite distracting. Grey strappy Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch styled her outfit.
2. Australian singer Delta Goodrem brought a romantic touch to the hot pink Dior dress with a pretty floral crown. A matching clutch and nude ballet pumps accessorized her look. Apparently Delta was nursing a foot injury at the time, hence her shoe choice.



3. Asian songstress Kelly Chan imparts a sense of sophistication to the Christian Dior dress with a black sparkly bag and nude cross-strap Dior shoes.
4. Most recently, British pop singer Sophie Ellis Bextor pulled the frock out of the Dior archives for a red carpet appearance just last week. Sophie added a black clutch and pumps to her look. I find the bodice slightly too big on her.


The Christian Dior lace and pleated dress also graced many-a-fashion magazine. From top left, Bella Heathcote in Vogue Australia, Megan Hilty in Vegas Magazine, Marion Cotillard in Elle South Africa and Milla Jovovich in Tatler Russia.

Who Wore It Better?

It's a tricky dress to wear and each of these ladies have brought something different to it. While none are ideal, my vote would go somewhere in between Delta and Kelly's looks. 
I am interested to hear your thoughts...Who do you think wore it best?

Hi Sam, I love this Dior red dress. I love the chiffon skirt because it is so feminine and flirty at the same time. Kelly Chan wore it best. Marion Cotillard wore it second best. Have a wonderful week!

Definitely Kelly, I think Delta would have pulled it off much better if the floral head piece was a little smaller, it's too big and takes away from the gown!

Mariamma Iris said...

I think Kelly did but I love Delta's floral headpiece too! Cute dress!

Mariamma

Toks said...

I have to agree with you on this one. I don't think any are ideal but I think that it would be between Delta and Kelly, but without the floral headpiece. I think Krysten's choice of transparency showing the black underwear takes away the sofistication and I really don't think it is the right choice for Sophie, the bodice looks a little too big and it makes her hips look wide.
Have a great Monday. xoxoxo

Super Airam said...

I think Ms. Delta wore it best! She paired it with the flower crown and I think it's cute! ^^

Tanya W. said...

Hi sam! I really like how it does looks on Kelly chan. She looks so sweet and feminine!

I hope your day is going to be wonderful darling!

Ha, I was just thinking the same. I really love the whimsical touch Delta added with that floral crown, but Kelly looks so chic and fantastic in it! Overall, it's a great dress for sure

Sam,
I kind of agree that none of the looks are totally ideal, but Kelly wore it best here. I wish she would've worn a more delicate shoe and it would've worked better! That dress is so pretty though and I love the skirt! Hope you have a good week dear and I will be back tomorrow night! Hugs!

It's such a beautiful dress and it's amazing how different it looks on different body shapes and with different accessories. I love Delta's floral crown that changed the romance of the dress, but I think Kelly and Krystan pulled it off better with their smaller frames.

trishie said...

I think it looks best on the runway...I think one needs to be really tall to pull of this dress.

Busisiwe Mgoboli said...

I love the way Krysten is wearing it. I like that she went for the sheer version- it also just looks good on her.

Nicky mywishstyle said...

Kelly is my favourite!!!

Kelly all the way. I love how elegantly she pulled it together.

Such a gorgeous dress! Lady in red indeed;) I love how Delta Goodrem styled the dress. The flower crown adds a playful summer-ish touch to the chic feminine gown. And my favourite actress ever Marion Cotillard looks beyond stunning in this dress.

Thank you for your sweet comments and opinions dear Sam! Have a wonderful week!

Daniella said...

Hey Sam, Oo such a pretty dress! It's been shown of the best in the editorials for sure but I think Kelly Chan styled it the best when it comes to showing off it's femininity, thought Krytsten Ritter did a great job of giving the dress some grown up edge! :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

Hi Sam sweetheart! You're right no one looks ideal. I would have said Krysten but the black knickers are a no go. So my vote goes to Kelly. Have a happy Monday!!

As you wrote this is a tricky dress to wear, I love how it looks on the runway, but's definitely a difficult one to combine. I really like how kelly wears it though, she looks classy and mixed it with the perfect accessories.

Hi Sam! Hope you had a lovely weekend!:) You featured an amazing dress today, which is one of my fav cause the color, the woven and the shape, even though the skirt isnt much easy to wear since it is sheer. Btw, well seeing all the ladies, have to end the same thing you said. I'm in double since I dont like one in specific, maybe I can choose Kelly too, but I dislike the choice of the shoes! She is the one who looks more flawless with it but maybe black pumps would have been better, in my opinion!:) Have a great start of the week my dear, kisses! xo

I think Kelly wore the ensemble the best - the length of the skirt hits her at a good place in the leg and she's note wearing weird black undies.

Zahra Sandberg said...

Hi Sam, loved the post - its interesting to see just how many times one piece can be styled but look so completely different! I go with Kelly for sure, with Krysten being a close second (though her hair is throwing me off a bit). The floral headpiece is a bit much for me, and the loose fit is not flattering at all.

Great post!

Honestly I don't like wholeheartedly any of the styling proposals. If I have to choose, Kelly wears it most elegantly, while Delta had a winning idea giving it a romantic twist, though the crown is too much!! I'd like to know your insight :-)
