Who Wore the Isabel Marant Jacket Better?

Who Wore It Better?
Isabel Marant Reilly Jacket

When a $3495 jacket is sold out everywhere, you know that it must be truly special. In ZAR terms, that's R24 124. The Isabel Marant Reilly Jacket has made frequent rounds of Hollywood and beyond during the past few months.

The multicolored cropped jacket has an upholstered look to it, which reminds me of the finely embroidered Rajasthani coats I saw while visiting Jaipur. The front-closure, sleeves and neckline are edged with either blue or red and white beads. The fabric is transposed from light to dark, with v-shaped panels on the sides. It has a tailored fit with slightly exaggerated shoulders. With the kaleidoscope of muted colours incorporated into this jacket, it can be worn with so many different things.

Country singer Julianne Hough wore it with an army green tee, dark wash jeans and wedges.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley paired her jacket with a black t-shirt and skinny jeans. She added a floppy brown hat and suede boots to her look.
Hilary Duff was spotted wearing the jacket this week. She wore it with black skinnies and a black t-shirt. She walked in sky-high black stilettos. 
Brit model & WAG, Alex Curran Gerrad wore her Reilly Jacket with lightwash flare denims, a loose white t-shirt and large cream tote.
Austrian stylist Caroline Sieber looks ultra cool with dark skinny jeans, white fitted tee, platform sandals and a striped bag.

As for who wore it best, my pick is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She styled it perfectly. 
Who's your favourite?
