Who Wore Valentino Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Valentino Fall/Winter 2013-14
Ivory Embroidered Dress

This Valentino FW13 dress has worked its way from an LA awards show to an NYC movie premiere and all the way to Europe for a chic casual outing. Featuring an embroidered wool bodice and bell-shaped skirt, high neck with mesh inset and cuffed tulle sleeves, this exquisite dress will go down as a classic in Valentino's hall of fame.



Retailing for a whopping $13 000 (yes 3 zeros), this Valentino dress has been a popular pick amongst the young and stylish...

1. Girls actress Allison Williams looked elegant at the MTV Awards in the ivory embroidered mini dress, choosing to wear her hair up and pairing it with metallic Christian Louboutin shoes.
2. British model Atlanta de Cadenet was spotted styling up the streets of Paris in the cream embroidered dress, selecting to keep on the scalloped neck collar as seen on the runway. Atlanta carried a see-through clutch and vivified her look with red lips & strappy shoes.
3. Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge was an image of grace pictured in the same romantic wool/silk dress at a movie premiere in New York City. Lily had her hair in loose waves with a red hot lip and embroidered ruby heels to accessorize.
4. On the Valentino Fall/Winter 2013-14 runway, US model Juliana Schurig presented the richly embroidered dress with the scalloped bib attached. The scholastic silhouette was accented by a side braid and black headband, along with gloved T-bar block heels.

As for 'Who Wore It Better', I think it would be impossible for anyone to look bad in this tasteful dress. My vote goes to Lily, because she wears it so effortlessly (and she's one of my favourite models). But kudos to Atlanta for wearing this look out casually whilst the others saved it for the red carpet. Do you prefer this dress with or without the scalloped collar?

Who do you think wore this Valentino dress better?

The version Lily and Allison are wearing looks different from the catwalk one and since the girl on the second photo looks either cold or uncomfortable, I am going with the model 100%. :)
Hope you had a nice weekend! x

Emilie said...

I agree with you: Lily looks spectacular and the red lipstick finishes it!!!! Loooove this dress btw! xxx

Gorgeous dress! My favourite look is Alison's!

Alexandra Zakharova said...

Lily Aldridge looks better of them all to my mind, seems like this dress was made right for her) Anyhow, I do like this dress, it looks so royal and stunning! But too expensive*(((((
Wish you a great day ahead, Sam!

Sveva said...

lovely dress! Lily Aldrige looks better!

Tany said...

I love the dress and I prefer the look with the original scalloped neck collar (I love it either way, really), so I'd vote for Atlanta de Cadenet (I'm also craving her red strappy shoes!).

Valeria said...

Hi Sam. I love this wonderful dress. My vote goes to Lily Aldridge. She looks great.

Daniella said...

Ah, I adore this dress! All these ladies wear it beautifully and at first I was edging towards Lily Aldridge but I think the matching shoes to the lipstick ruin it just a little. Soo i'm going with Alison Williams, she is looking very chic! :)

Take care and have a lovely week,
Daniella xox

Allison- She looks so classy and polished.

Alexis Grace of North On Harper said...

I am not sure who my favorite is- they all styled it with their own personality--
I like Allison's hair, Atlanta's inclusion of the collar and Lily's shoes!

Katie said...

I love how Atlanta de Cadenet has styled it- the red shoes are so lovely, and she's really made it her own.
It's such a stunning dress though, and looks amazing on all of them! xx

Jackie Harrison said...

The dress its gorgeous and it looks amazing on all the selected ladies.

Morning Sam! Hope your weekend was bright and great! Today you featured not only one of the most gorgeous dress but also one of my fav designer. Im just drooling over this beautiful embroidered piece, what a shame the price! Btw, I agree with you, I think Lily is the best, she looks so classy and refined, is one of my fav model as well. I prefer the dress without the collar, though even with it is always to die for! Have a great week dear, kisses xo

I truly love every single Valentino dress. I think together with Elie Saab these are two most powerful fashion houses when it comes to amazing gowns. It's hard to decide but I like Atlanta's playful look with a pair of red heels.

laviniah k said...

Hey love! Hope you're great
I would say Alison Williams, it was a tough call between her and Lily. But Alison's hair up and pairing with black pumps just does it for me. With that slight collar I think the dress is showcased better with hair up rather than down xx

Elle said...

Sam, I am so pleased you chose the ivory confection of a dress by Valentino to feature.
My favorite wearer ( lucky she) is Allison Williams. The length was perfect, she carried it with perfect poise, and then added a nip of contrast in her elegant, black pointy pumps.
