Who Wore H&M Conscious Collection Better?

Who Wore It Better?
H&M Conscious Collection Dress

If you live anywhere near an H&M store, you would have been witness to the exciting launch of their 2014 Conscious Collection, where sustainable materials are key in creating exquisite designs that are within a reasonable price range. This light beige lace dress is one of the most popular looks from the collection, boasting femininity and grace for all ages and shapes. 


It is plain to see why this dress and the complimenting shoulder embellishment are currently sold out online and in many of the H&M stores - it looks designer made, it is decadently pretty and seems far more expensive than it actually is. 

Five different celebrities were already spotted out wearing this luxurious lace look.

1. Jennifer Lopez wore the dainty cream dress for an appearance on American Idol last week. The Latina star kept her styling simple with gold bangles and Ivy Kirzhner cream and gold platform pumps. JLo's hair was combed in a half-up, half-down do.
2. Sophia Bush wore the same H&M Conscious Collection dress almost a month earlier in March 2014. The brunette actress paired her high-neck dress with a rhinestone studded shoulder decoration, also from the brand. Nude shoes, a silver grey clutch and girly curls style her outfit.
3. German model Franziska Knuppe pulled her hair up in a ballet bun to highlight the elaborate beaded neckpiece attached to this delicate ivory A-line dress. She accessorized with tan peep-toe heels and a nude bag.
4. Supermodel Alek Wek wore the same lace and organic cotton blend dress for an H&M outing last week, combining her fetching look with gold sequin and bead embroidered leather sandals that are also part of the H&M Conscious Collection.
5. The first person to be seen in the charming lace frock was Jessica Alba at Paris Fashion Week in February 2014. The starlet gave her look an edge with black tights and platform pumps.



Veteran model Amber Valletta fronts the 2014 H&M Conscious Collection Campaign, pictured in the creamy lace scalloped-hem, long-sleeved dress, which retails for $249. The dress is accessorized with a rhinestone decorated neckpiece that costs $149.


As for 'Who Wore It Better?', I think both Jennifer Lopez and Alek Wek wear this dress beautifully, without the high neckline being too overwhelming. I also liked the fit of the sleeves on Alek. Do you think this dress needs the beaded shoulder ornamentation?

Who Do You Think Wore This H&M Dress Best?

Good day Sam! The dress is really beautiful and it looks fine without the beaded shoulder ornamentation.
My choice is Alek Wek.

Fashion-Bridge said...

I'm not a big fan of baby-doll dresses (leave them to babies or dolls) but I like how Sofie Bush pulled this lace one. I think that J Lo is a bit out of the age to wear this sort of dresses...

Have a lovely week dear Sam!

This dress is so dreamy. I think you are right with who wore it best, though I do think that Amber Valletta wore it well to, it accentuates her bone structure beautifully :)

Alek is my favourite... She makes it look like that dress and shoes were made for her. x

Lilli said...

Hi Sam, this is for sure one of my fav dress from the collection, but as you I prefer it simple without the beaded shoulder ornamentation, it is "too much" in that way! But the same, all the ladies you featured wear it very well, cause is simple I prefer it on Jennifer Lopez, but I also love it on Franziska and Alek. OF course, Amber Valletta in flawless in the campaign. Just a note, I think the neckpiece is too much expensive!:/ Happy Monday dear! xo

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

I'm absolutely loving this dress on J.Lo and Sophia Bush! I think both of them totally rocked it! I'm loving the new collection too!

I agree with you Sam. This dress looks amazing on Alek Wek. The ornamentation isn't too over the top on her and the fitted sleeves look elegant. Have a wonderful week dear Sam!

Mª Pilar Domínguez said...

I liked in Sophia Bush version with the shoulder embellishment, no tights and beige shoes. Alek Wek is also awsome in this lace dress. Kisses, Sam:)

Carmen said...

I think Sophia Bush wore it best. The shoes match, the jewelry makes it even more special and her hair complements the light color of the outfit :)

I like how Jennifer Lopez wore it, she kept it really simple and chic. Jessica Alba also has a nice take on it, I think I like it just because it's pretty different than all the other versions. Beautiful dress!

Anita said...

This dress is gorgeous <3

VIENNA WEDEKIND said...

the best version is still the girl from the campaign.

Larissa said...

I think the dress is really nice and it looks great with the necklace but for me it would way too much. I like both styles, the ones with and without necklace. So its difficult to say who wore it better... let me try it on and then lets see who wore it best ;) just kidding.
Have good start in the week!
Lots of love!

I think with this beaded shoulder ornamentation it looks at it's best, with this addition the dress changes magically:) It's really interesting to see so many people wearing one dress, all of them looks different in it.)
Have a good week, Sam!

They all look lush and the shoulder wear is just out of this world.

LOVE the dress but I'm partial to the shoulder embellishment,... It's one of those pieces I'd have to see "in person" first.
Unfortunately this dress never came to my local H&M store, otherwise it would be hanging in my closet by now!
Wishing you a lovely week ahead, Sam!

My favourites are Sophia Bush and Franziska Knuppe because their styling is feminine, springy and romantic :)

Peet said...

That shoulder decoration is sick!! I definitely want that, it looks hot. And Alek Wek's my favorite, her dark skin looks perfectly edgy with the feminine material and cut of the dress. Even though this particular piece looks a bit too Amish for my liking, I'm all for the cause - sustainable materials should be more present on the market, no doubt. And H&M made them sound and look cool so kudos to them!

Yes Alek is my favorite and Amber looks gorgeous too. I think it actually needs the beaded shoulder ornamentation. I wonder how much it weighs. The stuff was sold out in a heartbeat. I couldn't even take a look at it. Have a wonderful day Sam!!

Sadie said...

This lace dress is my favourite from the collection. I really like it on Franziska, it just hangs really nicely on her and doesn't look too short. As for the shoulder embellishment, it looks fine without it but I think it just gives it that extra wow that makes it stand out :) xx

Gina said...

I do love it on Amber! Also, Sophia Bush and Jessica Alba wore it fabulously!

I really love this H&M Conscious collection, I think it was even more beautiful than last year! The dress is stunning, I have always loved lace, especially in white- as it is so feminine and romantic!
Regarding who wore the dress better, I think I would say that Jennifer Lopez did- as she kept it very simple not with a lot of accessories and with a really beautiful, fresh hairstyle!

i think franzisca styled it the best! i like that she pulled her hair up so as to not get away with the neckpiece! they all looks stunning though an the dress is just gorgeous! :)

Alek Wek wore it best - you need to be tall and skinny to pull off this look. I think it absolutely needs the sparkles, otherwise it looks like grandma's nightgown :P But with the stones it looks very pretty and you're right, expensive.
