WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Sofia Coppola vs. Rihanna in Céline
Sofia Coppola and Rihanna are not two women you’d expect to see wearing the same thing – Sofia prefers classic, minimalist elegance whilst Rihanna is more of an ‘out there’ dresser – so I was very surprised to see that they’d both picked out the same sweater dress from the Céline Pre-Fall 2010 collection!
Celine is known for their simplicity so perhaps it’s no surprise that Sofia went for this cute piece – it’s simple, it’s casual and yet it’s elegant too, in summary it’s exactly the sort of thing that she normally wears! She dresses it down with some opaque black tights and cute ankle boots with a fur trim for an evening out in New York back in December. Perfect winter chic!
Rihanna was spotted in hers just a couple of weeks ago, leaving the classy Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California. This is a state known for their laid-back style and Rihanna made no expection when she paired hers with some cute flats and a neutral Prada tote bag.
Unfortunately this dress is no longer available, but with the summer almost here you’d be crazy to want a thick sweater dress anyway. If it’s the colour blocking that you love, you might like this black and beige shift dress from Reiss at Asos as a more summery alternative.
This isn’t a hard dress to pull off – it’s so cute and simple it could suit just about anyone – and I think both of these girls have got it right. But, you must have a favourite… so who do you think wore it better?
