Who Wore It Better - The Bella Thorne Edition

Who Wore It Better?
The Bella Thorne Edition

2013 is the year that Bella Thorne has gracefully emerged as a young style icon, displaying intrigue and quirkiness with her innovative sense of fashion. Bella has also been the perfect poster girl for Blumarine this year, favoring the Italian brand for many of her red carpet appearances. But this 16-year-old has been caught wearing the same outfit as other starlets more than six times. Trendsetter, or copycat? And Does She Wear it Better? You Decide...

Round One
Bella wears a red and pink rose printed monochrome ensemble by Blumarine, featuring sheer sleeves, a folded tulip skirt and ankle-cropped pants, along with black pumps.
Behati Prinsloo selected to wear the same Blumarine outfit sans any pants.
Verdict: I like it on all three, it's a very pretty and girly look that a petite teen, a Victoria's Secret beauty and runway model all wear charmingly.

Round 2
Bella Thorne adorns a playful orange & white graphic printed look by Katie Ermilio, with cropped top and peplum maxi skirt. A statement necklace & black sandals style her outfit.
Jaime King picked the same look, shortening the length of the skirt & adding metallic pumps.
Verdict: Although this isn't my favorite look from Bella, I will chose her because this eclectic outfit suits her youthful style. I also like the topknot.

Round 3
Bella looked engaging in a pastel pink stripe and floral frock with draped skirt by Blumarine. She jazzed it up with green Bionda Castana shoes and a nude clutch.
Jada Pinkett Smith wears the same winsome dress with snazzy suede pink and red Alaia sandals and a rosy Jimmy Choo clutch.
Verdict: I love Jada's heels but I like the fit of the dress on Bella. 

Round 4
Bella is pictured in a navy blue and white Alice + Olivia window-pane printed dress with A-line flaired skirt and tie-up sandals by Prabal Gurung.
Mena Suvari wore the same strapless dress a year earlier with bright red Brian Atwood heels.
Verdict: Mena wins this one for me with her savvy pop of colour.

Round 5
Bella wears yet another look from Blumarine's Fall 2013 line, this time in a blush shade with sheer yoke & sleeves, embellished by aqua & white floral appliqués and metallic pumps.
Amber Kuo enhances her outfit with a crystal necklace & nude studded Louboutin pumps.
Verdict: I prefer the fit and styling of this dress on the runway model.

Round 6
Bella looked dreamy in the fairy-like sheer floral dress with nude inner corset by Blumarine.
Kacey Musgraces wore the same stunning dress to the CMA Awards 2 weeks before Bella.
Verdict: I preferred this delicate look on Bella, her braided crown added to the romance.

Does Bella Wear it Better? 
List numbers 1 to 6 and let me know what you think below.

P.S. My next post will be on Wednesday.

Bella Thorne is fantastic with all the dresses, but I think her hair style is not always the best, like in set 6, I prefer the long hair of Kacey Musgraves or in round 4, Mena Suvari is more elegant.

Valeria said...

Bella Thorne looks great in all of these dresses. I'm in love with the last's so romantic.


Unknown said...

Great post!
Round 1,2 and 3 wins Bella
4 - Mena
5- Amber
6 - Bella

Have a good week!

Unknown said...

From all the appearances I prefer Bella Thorne Round 6.
Have a great new week!

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Hope your weekend was terrific and amusing! I always enjoy this kind of feature from you. I'm not a big fan of her, she is so young and I think doesnt stand out for the little age she still has in all the outfits, though I agree with all your verdicts and with the dresses in which she looks better. Regarding the clothes my fav is the Blumarine one in the last round, so princess like, romantic and gorgeous, she is adorable on it. While the first and the fourth are totally not too much suitable for her young age. Have a great Monday and week ahead my dear, big hugs! xo

Alexandra Zakharova said...

To tell the truth, I like the way those garments look only on models. On skinny tall models anything would look just gorgeous, though.
Wish you a blessed day ahead, Sam!

Jeannette said...

GREAT Post!!! Nice Inspiration!!!


Jackie Harrison said...

Nice fashion selection like Behati Prinsloo in the 1 row and Mena Suvari in the 4 and Bella Thorne on the 5 they look stunning. Have a great day doll.

Unknown said...

Bella wore all the looks in a simply way and I like it!

Unknown said...

I loved this post! Bella Thorne certainly has great style! I must say that from rounds 1 to 5 I preferred the model wearing the outfits, but alas, models are really great, and besides, the publicity pictures are pretty much airbrushed as I always say! But then if I had to choose one of the two actresses wearing the outfits, not considering the models, I would say Round 1 - Bella, although I found creative the way the other wore it; Round 2 - Jamie King; Round 3 - Bella; Round 4 - Mena, because of the red shoes, although Bella is also lovely and I also loved her sandals; Round 5 - Bella. But as I said, the models for me wore the pieces in a great way, from 1 to 5. And finally Round 6, Bella wins for sure, even better than the model! I guess we have pretty much the same opinion! denisesplanet com

2.Bella and Jamie both in their own ways
3.Bella, love her hair hairstyle and pastel green heels
4.Mina, its a better fit on her and as you said the heels add a pop of color!

Beauty Follower said...

I liked the dress in the round 4.
I think Bella looks great in the round 5 dress.

Have a lovely week dear Sam :)

Unknown said...

Rounds one Behati, Round two Jaime, Round three I would say the model because of the nude heels, but I would also wear the mint pair. Round four Mena, the red really pops out, and round five and six all.


Edyta said...

Honestly, Bela, on every occasion!


Pilar Domínguez said...

I don´t know if you would agree but I loved Bella Thorne style. I haven´t heard about this girl before. She is amazing in all these looks. Sorry for the delay but I have been out in Madrid. I wish you a lovely week, my friend. Kisses, Sam:)

Jointy&Croissanty said...

In my opinion she looks the best in first and third round.

Silvia Negretti said...

Except for the 5th look (I prefer the one on the model of catwalk), Bella won all the rounds! :)

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Bella Thorne is one fashionable young starlet and I agree with most of your assessments Sam! That 1st look is my overall favorite and it does rock across the board :)

I must admit I'm a bit biased coz I love Bella in her show with Zendaya Shake It Up, so I think she looked good in all the outfits.:)
Thank you for always posting such lovely comments on my posts, Sam:)

Kathryn said...

For the most part I agree with all your verdicts, sometimes it's the simplest details that made her look stand out.

Lady parisienne said...

great printed outfits!

June said...

Wow she has great style and wears all the looks so well. I actually preferred her look in each outfit opposed to the others! Maybe its her cute hairstyle but she just shines in all these outfits. :)

samecookiesdifferent said...

so nice <3 xxx

Antonella C’est Moi said...

Hi honey i think that the best looks are 1/3 round!!! kisses

Kacie Cone said...

Round 1- Behati Prinsloo, I just love it without the pants!
Round 2- Bella Thore, the little peplum skirt is just too cute and I think the colors look great with her hair color
Round 3- Bella, it's just such a young dress, it looks weird on someone older!
Round 4- Bella again, the shoes are way too cute!
Round 5- No one, the color of that dress is just not flattering on any of their skin tones
Round 6- Everyone, that dress is so so so gorgeous I don't think it could look bad on anyone!

Woo that was fun, thank you for providing my distraction from finals with some fashion thinking!

She is so pretty! I really love her in 3 and 6. Too be honest, I think she and the 2nd person for the most part look better than the actual model in the clothing!

Round 4 is absolutely my favorite and i love Mena Suvari 's style.



Gigi.T said...

in my opinion it doesnt matter if she copied it or not. She looks fabulous in every outfit!

xoxo ♥

Anna and Klaudia said...

Bella looks really so sweet :))

Unknown said...

She rocked it in each round!

Unknown said...

For me she rocked round 4 best!
They all look great though!

Anita said...

stunning outfit!

Unknown said...

Poor Bella! It so sad to be compared always with someone dressed like you, but its a dayli life of celebrities :)))) I like more the Bella´s look on the number on number 3,4 and 6. Dont like a lot the numer one, I think this look its better without pants!!!
have a nice day doll

Min Tarpy said...

Great outfits! I think it's a question of who wore it first, but it's not that important whether you are a copycat or a trendsetter. Shops sell dresses you buy them, so as long as you look great in whatever you are wearing you don't need to worry about who wore what first.

Unknown said...

I'd say Alice Olivia, the others look hard to wear

Unknown said...

Well I absolutely love Bella's style, youthful, girly, feminine and chic at the same time.x Number 1 - I think Bella wore it better, it looks super cute and girly on her, number 2 - again Bella, for the same exact reason, number 3 - Bella, I love the whole outfit and those heels match perfectly with her outfit. Number 4 - I think Mena wore it better, the dress looks gorgeous on her and I love that she added red heels, number 5 - I think both of them look great but I like the necklace Amber added and number 6 - Bella, she just matched everything perfectly by taking her hair up!

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Fab round up as ever Sam! Loving the Alice and Olivia dress on particular. Ok so my votes go to…1. Bella, 2. Bella, 3. Jada, 4. Mena (those shoes!), 5. Bella, 6. Kacey (love her hair). Great start to the day! Hope your week is going well xx

Carla said...

Bella definitely has an amazing style. My favorite is the first look.. although I have to say Behati wore it better!

xo, Carla

Anonymous said...

Haha copycat:) it's so funny:) I love first dress with pants but I think no one color doesn't suit her well, I think she needs to wear more vibrant warm color, she is he same type as Nicole Kidman - spring.
You look stunning! Fur vest is so stylish and cozy, what can be better!

Have a happy week ahead, dear Sam

Rahul Bhatia said...

Bella looks great but is it me or the models on the runway are killing it in the same outfit. I think i somehow prefer the runway version just as is. She looked phenomenal in the last look though. Great post Sam.

Thanks for stopping by.

Shayne ♥ said...

i pick bella on almost all of the outfits here, although i must say i did not like the last dress on her ^^ i love this post sam, i love bella throne i didnt know bluemarine got her :)

Bella looks wonderful, but the runway models are my winners in the most sets!
wish you a wonderful day sweety!


lalalaPatricia said...

Hi Sam! Look who's back?! :) I miss bumping here. And most of the set Bella orcked it! Round 4-6 :)

Peet said...

16-year-old?!?!?!?!?!?! In that last outfit she looks really old. I'd say mature, but since she's 16, the makeup and the clothes really really age her... But I like her style, whether she's a copycat or a trendsetter. Although I like Mena Suvari's version better, those red pumps make a whole lot of difference!

Wishing you a fabulous Tuesday, my dear!;)

LaTasha Bunting said...

Hello lovely Sam,

Bella Thorne is such a cutie pie! Bella T. won rounds 2 and 3 in my opinion (we agree on these sets). Behati P. won round 1 for me. Mena S. won round 4 for me (again we agree). Amber K. won round 5 in my opinion. And Kacey M. won round 6.

Such a fun post hun! I had fun picking my faves!

With love,

Sam, I ahve to agree with all your verdicts, but i will say that the runway models get an advantage as they have a coterie of pros fussing over them, just before the walk. ( timing is everything)
FUN post! Gorgeous dresses - and pants, ALL
XX, Elle

sonia // daring coco said...

I pretty much agree with your verdicts apart from the first and last ones. I preferred Behati's look as opposed to layered with the pants, I felt like it was too much going on!
