WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Jennifer Lopez vs Jennifer Hudson in Chloé
Chloé has always been one of my favourite design houses so I was excited to see not one but TWO celebrities stepping out recently in this gorgeous Chloé whipstitch leather dress from the 2011 Resort collection! The two Jennifers are bang on trend for spring as nudes were a major catwalk theme, with none other than Chloé leading the way with their Spring/Summer collection of flowing, pleated chiffon creations in a whole range of nude colours. This dress though is a slightly tougher take on the look, being as it is made from a gorgeous soft leather with whipstitch detail at the collar and sleeve caps.
J.Lo wore hers when she was on the judging panel of American Idol in January, teaming it with some fierce leopard print boots, some well-chosen jewellery and a small brown clutch. The look is somewhere between tough and girly – perfect for a woman with J.Lo’s attitude and feminine style! Jennifer Hudson on the other hand went for a much softer look, teaming her dress with some strappy sandals, bangles and gold hoop earrings for the Nickelodeon Upfront Presentation a couple of weeks ago. I’m guessing that with the spring finally here she was aiming for a pretty, summery look and she certainly achieved it.
This (albeit gorgeous) Chloé dress will set you back a massive £2065 but my beloved ASOS have a whole range of near-perfect copies. Sure, they’re not leather, but who wants to be sweating in the sunshine anyway? The best of the lot is probably the Flippy Ponti dress for £45, and Oasis’ Fit and Flare dress in camel is a great alternative too at £60.
Back to the celebrities… who gets your vote, J.Lo’s tough look or Hudson’s sweet and girly style?
