WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Porsha Stewart vs Mariah Carey in Lanvin
Green has been a very popular colour lately and I’m particularly in love with this Lanvin green strapless dress that was spotted on both Porsha Stewart and Mariah Carey. The colour is vibrant and the fitted bodice with its seamed natural waist enhances the silhouette. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Porsha was seen wearing the S/S 2013 Lanvin dress attending the Bravo Upfront Presentations in New York City a few weeks ago. She hit the red carpet also wearing a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps, a statement necklace and natural waves.
Just a few months before, we’d seen Mariah Carey dressed in the same dress during the Winter Press Tour of the American Idol Panel in Pasadena. Mariah’s complexion really complemented the dress and she chose Joan Boyce jewellery and a pair Christian Louboutin ‘Pluminette’ sandals to complete the look.
If you cannot resist the lure of this Lanvin dress like me, then pick up the same pique dress for a whopping £2,171. You can also get the same Jimmy Choo metallic Anouk pumps for £595. If that’s a bit out of your price range then you should have a look at this cheaper green peplum dress (£67) for a similar look.
My vote goes to Porsha because in my opinion Mariah over-accessorised the dress. The sandals are a bit too overwhelming and it looks like the sophistication and simplicity of the outfit got lost somewhere in emerald city! Do you agree? Now it’s your turn to vote who wore it better.
