Who wore it best: Two Jennifers take on Tom Ford’s sexy backless zipper dress
Posted on August 17 2012
Stating that Tom Ford is a bit of a design genius is a bit of an understatement. From his days at Gucci to designing for his eponymous line, pretty much everything that he’s touched seems to make sense, fashion-wise. He gets sexy but he also gets restrained elegance (as witnessed by his directorial debut “A Single Man” which starred Oscar Winner Colin Firth.) Hollywood on the other hand also gets Ford which explains the popularity of his pieces since he recently made a come back. Stars like Jennifer Aniston can’t get enough of his line, sporting pieces everywhere from New York to Paris. The latest runaway hit comes courtesy of his backless zipper dress and Hollywood is clearly a fan with heavy hitters like Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Lawrence and even Kim Kardashian (good thing?) sporting the look in different colors.
So who wore it best? Jennifer Lawrence was the first to sport this look on her promotional tour for Hunger Games. Wearing her hair sleek straight, she played off the dress’ gold zipper with some chunky gold heels and finished off her look with red lips. Jennifer Lopez on the other hand opted for some color, sporting the red version while celebrating her 43rd birthday. She looked fabulous in a pair of matching cap-toe Louboutins and finished off her look with an edgy clutch complete with attached wrist cuff. This is a tough call but we’re giving this round to Jennifer Lopez, she looks fantastic at 43 and as much as we love the ever faithful LBD, we love a good LRD more. Who do you think wore it best?
