Sometimes it’s not about what you wear, it’s how and where you wear it. That was definitely the case when two big names recently wore this Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 creation comprised of a white top and colorful full skirt. Marion Cotillard hit the red carpet in a slightly altered take from the lookbook back in January at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. The Oscar winner’s sophisticated version featuring a strapless top and deep blue skirt was styled with Chopard gems as well as black pumps. Jennifer Lopez stayed true to the original last week when she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her grand ensemble, which also included H.Stern earrings and black Brian Atwood ankle strap pumps, seemed a bit excessive for the outdoor event.
Even though we appreciate the fact that Jennifer embraced the look as it was presented by the fashion house, the noticeable creases in the satin skirt are hard to get past. Marion’s interpretation exuded a certain elegance and seemed more appropriate on a red carpet, so she’s the winner in this style showdown. Which star’s version do you prefer?
