When a celeb wears a dramatic gown on the red carpet at an award show, that gown is forever associated with that star. That’s exactly what happened to Natalie Portman back in January 2012 at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards. She made quite an impact in a strapless fuchsia Lanvin duchess silk satin creation with pleated bustle train and red accent on the bodice. A red clutch and Jimmy Choo Macy sandals wrapped up her memorable look. So, we were a bit surprised to see Doutzen Kroes in the exact same silk gown last Thursday at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball in New York City. The Victoria’s Secret model accessorized with diamond jewelry and a matching pair of satin platform pumps.
Natalie’s the clear winner here, not only because she wore it first, but because her elegant styling made the gown even more remarkable. Do you side with the Oscar winner on this one or do you think Doutzen held her own?
