Who wore it best? From the runway to the red carpet (Model vs. Camilla Belle)
Posted on January 25 2012
This week’s edition of Who wore it best? features one of the season’s most coveted colors. The look comes straight from uber designer Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2012 line and was strutted down the runway by model du jour Karlie Kloss. Actress Camilla Belle was the first to take the dress for a spin at the Art of Elysium gala and she looked absolutely beautiful in this gorgeous dress. So, on to the heavy task of deciding who wore it best.
This color is gorgeous on both model and actress but the straps look like they were shortened for Camilla and that little tweak in turn changes the look of the bust. Moreover, one of the selling points of the dress is the tea-length hem and you can’t really tell with Camilla’s because the length goes way past her ankles. I would also have loved to see her in sandals with less fabric. Simple t-strap gold heels would have been perfect for this. That being said, Camilla wears the back well. The delicate ribbon of this dress fits her frame and the train doesn’t overwhelm her. It’s both feminine and elegant and she carried it well. It looks like we’e looking at a 50/50 situation here. Karlie gets the front and Camilla gets the back. Who do you think won this battle? Share your thoughts below.
