WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Kim Kardashian vs Fergie in Balmain
If anyone can get away with wearing this cheeky Balmain coat mini-dress it’s these two gorgeous girls! Fergie donned the super short, jacket-dress combo a week ago for the Case-Mate event in New York. She kept her look modest wearing a black top under the dress and adding some black court shoes. Her wavy hair and simple make-up completed this pretty look.
Just the next day and Kim Kardashian couldn’t resist wearing the same Pre-Fall 2012 piece whilst out in NYC. Her styling, heavily influenced recently by boyfriend Kanye West, was a lot sexier, as she decided to give the top a miss and show off the plunging neckline of the dress instead. Some ankle strap stilettos completed her vampish look. If you’re brave enough to step out in the original Balmain coat mini-dress, it’s yours for $4710. However, I much prefer this black tuxedo dress for a similar look at just £38.
Kim Kardashian narrowly lost out to Charlize Theron in their Lanvin fash-off, but I think she’ll win your votes this time around. Fergie played it too safe wearing a top under the dress, whilst Kim shows us if you’re going wear a dress this short, you may as well go all out sexy! What do you think?
