Rachel McAdams vs Nicole Kidman in Collette Dinnigan

By  | 

Two celebrities have proved that lace can look demure, and not trashy,on the red carpet. Rachel McAdams was seen wearing this Collette Dinnigan dress to a photocall of her movie The Vow  a couple of weeks ago. The actress wore the dress with black heels and kept her hair and make-up really simple. Nicole Kidman was then seen wearing the same dress, just last Friday to the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts 1st Annual Awards. She teamed the dress with strappy sandals, and like Rachel, she kept everything else simple.

The  Spring 2012 Collette Dinnigan dress is available from their boutiques. If you want an alternative, I suggest trying this Cream Waisted Lace Dress (£30). To keep the look classy why not opt for simple strappy sandals or plain heels?

Nicole’s colouring suits this dress perfectly. Her golden skin contrasts with the dress really well. Rachel looks good in the dress too but I think her skin is too pale for it- you just cannot see where the dress starts or ends! Which one do you prefer? Nicole or Rachel’s styling? Vote now!

    Much prefer the shorter version on Nic. It is a gorgeous dress though and I love the High St version you’ve found!
