Now here is a battle I'm excited to witness. Olivia Palermo and Reese Witherspoon go head to head — or skirt to skirt — in their marbled print minis. The former wore her skirt last week at a Henri Bendel event in NYC with a boho-style white top, peep-toe booties, and a croc clutch. Reese wore hers more casually while running errands in LA with a black cami, flat sandals, and a Marni bag. Both ladies look fabulous in their own way, but which version is more up your alley?
One moody floral Express miniskirt, two different style situations. Rachel Bilson wore hers casually — with a white tee, denim jacket, and black booties — while picking up her mail in LA. Lake Bell, on the other hand, wore hers to a red carpet event, the Nylon Drew Barrymore August cover party. Her version is all about the layers and includes a green silk shirt, paired with a vest, gray suede booties, and a cream clutch. Both ladies look undeniably hip, but which version rocks your world more?
What a fantastic dress. I loved this pink and white Gucci Ikat dress when January Jones wore it to a pre-Golden Globe Awards party in January. It's girlie, yet modern. Taraji P. Henson chose the same frock for an evening at Cipriani with Mary J. Blige and friends last night. Both ladies opted for black shoes, but January's are satin pumps and Taraji's are architectural sandals. JJ grabbed a small black purse (you can sort of see it on the table next to her), and Taraji a pearl white clutch. Lastly, Taraji wore David Yurman drop earrings and fun teal nail polish. Who wins — less or more?!
Remember when Dree Hemingway attended amfAR's gala in Cannes in this neon yellow and nude Valentino confection? She nearly made us drool. Now inducing even more loving feelings is Fendi heiress and jewelry designer of the skeleton hand Delfina Delettrez Fendi, who wore the same frock at a fabulous fete in Italy. Delfina's version includes black ankle-strap pumps, while Dree's is a matching nude and black sandal. Both stunning, but whose version is a notch above?
As soon as I saw Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover of Marie Claire's June issue, I instantly had a flashback to Demi Moore's W cover from December '09; you know, the one that stirred much airbrushing controversy. They're both wearing similar, armor-chic looks from Balmain's Spring '10 collection, so the comparison must be made. Demi's has a low-cut bodice, while SJP's is boatneck — both have asymmetrical-hem skirts and hanging shoulder details. So tell me, which cover girl wore Balmain better?
Last night, the stars watched the LA Lakers beat the Oklahoma City Thunders. But my attention wasn't on the ball; it was on courtside twinsies David Beckham and Charlize Theron. What are the odds that both blonds would show up wearing a black and white plaid shirt — sleeves rolled — and dark denim? Granted David wore sneakers and a beanie, while Charlize wore cutout booties; still quite a cool coincidence. So tell me, who do you think wore his/her courtside plaid and denim better?
Clogs are taking over fashion, one clunker at a time. No.6 has come out with a pair of Buckle Clog Boots ($345) that both Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore are fans of. Michelle wore hers a while back in NYC, while Julianne just stepped out in them recently. Michelle's version is more polished and includes a print skirt, peacoat, and beanie. Julianne opted for disheveled-chic via gray skinny jeans, a khaki trench, and gray scarf. Both exude casual-cool vibes, but who wore it better?
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen don't need to be in the same apartment to feel the same fashion vibes. Through the power of twin synergy, both sisters were spotted leaving their own separate cribs wearing fresh Spring scarves. Mary-Kate paired her red houndstooth print scarf — check out that cool European loop — with cuffed leather trousers, oxfords, cat-eye sunnies, and a wool coat. Ashley kept it casual and donned a green scarf with a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans, leopard flats, an olive tee, round sunnies, and a navy cardi. So tell me: which Olsen wore her Spring scarf better?
Hollywood, as well as Washington, has gotten the Prabal Gurung bug. And it's easy to see why — his frocks are delicate, yet make quite a statement. Thandie Newton wore Prabal's black-and-white floral frock at the 2012 premiere. Leighton Meester went for a more daring floral frock. Demi Moore opted for a classy-cum-sassy Prabal at GQ's Gentlemen's Ball, and Michelle Obama wore the designer's sheath dress when she recently donated her inaugural ball gown to the Smithsonian. All breathtaking, but who wore Prabal Gurung best?
Marios Schwab makes incredible, abstract-printed, fabulously futuristic frocks. Leighton Meester and Anna Paquin are fans. The former wore one of his dresses at a party back in November. She opted for a spiked bangle and peep-toe boots as accessories. Anna also wore one of Schwab's frocks, though a different cut, to the Costume Designers Guild Awards last night. She threw on a necklace and caged sandals. Both dresses are fantastical, but whose version do you love best?
