Who wore it better?
January 21, 2022
When it comes to celebrities copying others’ outfits there are often many opinions. Editor-in-Chief Caroline Hubbard and Staff Writer Cecily Shaber use their love for fashion to discuss who wore it better.
While these beautiful red dresses look amazing on both women, Lupita Nyongó styled her Ralph Lauren dress better than Megan Markle styled her Safiyaa dress. The way she draped it off her shoulders helped to draw attention to her collar bone and really added a nice feature. Both girls had a cape on the dress, but Nyongó’s went all the way to the floor giving off more of a bodycon look.
Sophia Vergara and Brooke Burke both rocked these casual sundresses, but the way Vergara styled it was better. She kept it nice and classic while still adding her own personal touch by matching her purse to her tan shoes. Burke went for more of a dramatic style matching the dress to striking blue heels that just took away from the dress.
I guess this Alice+Olivia striped jumper is very popular among people named Elizabeth, with both Elizabeth Chambers and Elizabeth Banks wearing it out and about. While both Elizabeths looked beautiful in the jumper, Banks wore it best. She styled it with red accents that beautifully complimented her skin tone and added a much-needed pop of color, giving the look a nice personal touch.
This Old Navy sherpa coat is an absolutely amazing piece that both Allison Brie and Malin Akerman styled stunningly. I prefer the way Brie styled the sherpa due to how she styled it with a darker pair of jeans and dark brown boots that complimented the colors of the sherpa. She also rocked a small on-the-shoulder bag that tied the outfit together.
Selma Blair and Kate Walsh both wore this beautiful Christian Siriano dress and both pulled it off beautifully to the point it was incredibly hard to decide a favorite. In the end, I am partial to Walsh’s version of the outfit. She matched her heels to a shining belt that not only cinch the waist and gave it more of an A-line skirt, but also helped it look more like she was wearing the dress, not like the dress was wearing her.
Although both Meghan Markle and Lupita Nyongó rock the iconic red dress look, I prefer the way Meghan Markle put a twist on the classic style. Her gown’s high neckline and cape-like shoulders exude a regal air fitting for the former Duchess of Sussex. Also, Markle takes the red look all the way, pairing the Safiyaa dress with a vibrant clutch and pair of heels.
Sofia Vergara spruces up this sundress with a tall pair of heels and a matching handbag. While this look is viable, the further relaxed style of Brooke Burke is more my fancy. This dress radiates summer vibes, and Burke ties the look together with a pair of vivid blue heeled sandals.
The two Elizabeths are very matchy-matchy and both radiant in their one-shoulder cropped jumpsuits, but I believe Chambers’ look rivals that of Banks. Chambers has kept her style neater with simple black heels, while Banks adds bright red accents, which distract from the lovely pattern of her jumpsuit.
Malin Akerman and Alison Brie twin in a white sherpa coat, and they both pair it with similar white blouses and a pair of blue jeans. However,a few subtle details in Akerman’s outfit make all the difference. Akerman’s top is a classy button-up whose elegant collar emphasizes that of the sherpa coat, which is the star of the ensemble. Also, her blue jeans are lower-waisted than those in Brie’s look, which gives a more relaxed and comfortable impression.
Neither Selma Blair nor Kate Walsh can forgo a pocket-pose to showcase this essential attribute of their identical tea-length dresses. Each lady sports similar black heels and silver-toned jewelry, but the genius of Blair’s look is in her hairdo. The dark waves contrast with the strict cut of her dress, while Walsh goes for a more severe style with a sleek parted bun.
