WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Sarah Jessica Parker vs Busy Philipps in Marc by Marc Jacobs
Pussy bows and forties dresses are hard to carry off and they don’t suit everybody. Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted in New York wearing this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress which sports both the pussy bow and forty style frock. Sarah chose to wear the dress from Marc’s Fall 2011 range with plain black pumps and not much else regarding accessories. Busy Philipps was then seen wearing the same dress in L.A. but contary to SJP, Busy accessorised her dress with a black belt, which helped to nip it in at the waist and brown boots.
This dress hasn’t been reduced yet so you will have to get it at full price($485). If you want your own version, at a fraction of the price, this Dark Green Pussybow Midi Dress (£42) is practically a copy and has me thinking who could tell the difference!!
If you aren’t going to try and make the dress work then don’t wear it! For me, Busy wins it because she gives it a seventies edge with the brown boots and loose curls which have a bit more oomph compared to SJP, who looks just too prudish and plain with the black heels and not much else. It could’ve been made so much better with a wee belt or a bit of jewellery, don’t you think? Who do you prefer? Vote below!
