Who wore it best – From the runway to the carpet (Model vs. Blake Lively)

Posted on September 15 2011

Blake Lively goes red in Marchesa

In today’s edition of who wore it best? It’s another battle over Marchesa. The British brand is no doubt a staple with A-list stars. Everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Nicole Kidman, Eva Longoria, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson and Rihanna has at some point been beautifully draped in Marchesa. If you’re familiar with the brand, you know that it’s all about details when it comes to the clothes and the same is true with this embroidered red silk organza illusion cap sleeve dress with tulle ruffle skirt. So who wore it best? As much as Blake Lively has always proven herself on the  carpet, the winner of this dress battle is the model and here’s why…The dress is a very full/heavy dress. The materials used and the texture created make it that way. Blake Lively loves to show off those legs and the dress looks like it may have been hemmed or shortened from the original version. By shortening the dress, you also lose the original shape and as a result, it looks a little boxy. Pair that with the cap sleeves which are tricky on most – including stunning Hollywood beauties and you have a not-quite-there fit. On the model, the dress has a shape and you know what they say, fit is everything!
