Christina Aguilera vs Kristen Stewart in Valentino
The phrase “a man is only as good as his tools” is clearly lost on Christina Aguilera here- Valentino dress plus Christian Louboutin peep toes- yet the overall look is about as classy as flashing a bit of thigh after a night out in your local takeaway for a free doner kebab.
The delicacy and elegance of the asymmetric, lace dress from the Resort 2011 collection is lost behind the layers of orange fake tan, peroxide hair and brash make up, whereas Kristen’s chic and understated up-do shows off the shoulder detail and lets the dress do the talking. Her simple Brian Atwood pumps and statement red lips are all the accessories she needs for this lovely lacy look.
Feeling flush? You too can get the Valentino dress here. However it will set you back a fair bob or two. Why not check out this one shoulder lace dress, just £100 from ASOS, or if you find lacy just a bit too racy then this lace insert dress adds just a tantalising teaser.
Personally, I think this is a tale of two skin tones; Kristen’s pale and creamy complexion suits the Gothic effect of the lace dress, but Christina’s tangoed tan turns the look from on-trend to tacky. But what do you think? Vote now!
