Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Alexander McQueen black and gold gowns

The impact of a timeless black Alexander McQueen gown is never lost...no matter how many times it has been worn out on the red carpet. These are two exceptionally crafted crepe dresses from the British design label that have graced red carpets the world over a multitude of times. But who holds up the value of an Alexander McQueen original best?



The first gown is a black crepe long-sleeved silhouette with fluted skirt and high neck keyhole cut-out collar that is beautifully decorated by gold leaf embellishings. The dress, which is sold out online, retailed for $7000.


Round One
1. Kate Hudson was exquisitely dressed in this Alexander McQueen frock with decadent gold beaded neckline at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. She was the first to wear the design and added a leaf motif belt to clinch in her waist. Rolling blonde waves style her look.
2. Russian beauty Victoria Bonya brought this popular dress to the Cannes Film Festival this year, the silhouette fitting her to perfection, with an embellished belt highlighting her narrow waist.
3. British actress Emma Rigby picked out this regal gown for the Berlin premiere of her movie 'The Physician' back in December 2013. A slicked back hairstyle completed her look.
4. Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone stunned at the 2014 Screen Awards in India wearing the famed McQueen fishtail gown with embroidered gold neckline. Deepika opted not to wear a belt with her look and slicked her hair back in a style similar to Emma's.

These four ladies were not the only ones to be enamored by the allure of this Alexander McQueen dress. Middle-aged Reality TV stars Lisa Vanderpump, Kris Jenner and Alexia Echevarria all have been photographed wearing the exact same look. (Click the links to see their versions).



This stunning second look from Alexander McQueen is a slinky black crepe strapless gown with gold metal leaf crystal encrusted peplum, which retails for $4 485.

Round Two
1. Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra was beautifully outfitted in the curve-hugging Alexander McQueen gown at the 2014 Filmfare Awards in Mumbai, India. Side swept waves styled her look.
2. South Korean actress Jeon Do Youn wore the same elegant gown with beaded peplum at the 2014 Asian Film Awards in Macau, China. As radiant as she is, the gown seems slightly big on her.
3. The first to wear this McQueen creation long before anyone else in December 2013 was British actress Naomie Harris, at the London premiere of her movie 'Long Walk to Freedom'. Naomie's svelte frame is elongated in this polished column gown.

As for 'Who Wore It Better', in Round One my pick is Victoria Bonya, the gown was tailored to fit her flawlessly and her sophisticated upstyle suited the high neckline of the gown. In Round Two, I prefer the hourglass shape of Priyanka's dress over the slimmer fitted dresses of Jeon and Naomie.

Who Do You Think Wore Each McQueen Dress Best?

So I am going with Kate Hudson and Priyanka Chopra---- these dresses are so stunning. Jessica Chastain also wore a black & gold Alexander McQueen to the Oscars the year she was nominated for an Oscar for Zero Dark Thirty--- it was stunning!

I think I agree on both of your picks for who wore it best! On round one, I pick Victoria because I love how she added a embellished belt with the dress, it kind of looks like is part of it and I love how her hair is up, letting all the details show!
Thanks for sharing darling!

These gowns are like works of art! My vote is for Victoria Bonya in round one. I don't know who she is but she rocks that dress. And Naomie Harris in round two cause she's fast becoming a red carpet fave of mine.

For the first dress I like the version without belt better, but in total I think Chopra is wearing the dress the perfect way- simple, but with beautifully styled hair which fits with the look of the dress :)
Sam, thank you so much for your sweet comment! It made me so happy! Since you know so much more about fahsion than me, it made me really happy to read that you think that I have a sophisticated style :)
Lots of love to you!

Wow, that first dress is TOTALLY up my alley! It's gorgeous! I think it looks best with Victoria's updo! :)

Kathryn said...

Definitely agree with you on the first set- Victoria Bonya looks so classy in the dress, like it was made just for her. Still can't decide on the last round, they all look flawless!

Vanessa Billie-Jill-Jean said...

Wow, this dress is really stunning, I think Kate looks amazing in this dress. *__*
Lovely greets Nessa

kate hudson for sure ! Lovely selection :)

Ina R. said...

Round One: definitely Victoria Bonia!
Round Two: Priyanka Chopra because this dress is for curves!

andysparkles said...

Kate Hudson rocks this look!

Toks said...

Haven't been by for a couple of days, I've been sooooo busy at work, but all caught up now. I'm not a big fan of peplum so I prefer the first dress, and I think I would go with Kate Hudson. Thanks so much for your comment and I worked as a model for a couple of years but I wasn't too happy with the modelling life and prefered to opt out, although occasionally I do sessions for a couple of friends who are fashion photographers.

I think Kate Hudson.

Ramona said...

There's reason that we all are so unique and beautiful in own kind a way. That the same dress can create completely different look on each of us. I have to say all ladies look stunning, but most dramatic and impressive for me is Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.

Hmm I think for the first round, I think Victoria wore it the best because I think the hair should be up so people can see the details!

I agree with you on both choices, Sam! On the first set I was first drawn to Kate Hudson's look, but I don't like the deeper keyhole neckline so much.
