WHO WORE IT BETTER?
Vanessa Hudgens vs Mischa Barton in Katharine Kidd
Before summer arrives I will be investing in lots of lace, soft fabrics and pastel colours to make my wardrobe beautiful! Top of my list is this outfit from the Spring 2013 collection of American designer Katharine Kidd. The skirt and crop top set was spotted on Vanessa Hudgens and Mischa Barton and is a key look for summer.
In February, Vanessa was spotted at a photo call for the promotion of Spring breakers in Madrid looking fresh and ethereal in this outfit. The lace gives the dress a dreamy and innocent feel, but at the same time the tailoring reveals the figure of the young actress. Vanessa selected a pair of Jerome C. Rousseau Popp heels in purple and some statement earrings.
It was a surprise to see Mischa Barton in the same outfit, especially as I am used to seeing her dressed in darker Gothic styles. Last week she attended the Fire & Ice Gala in LA wearing the skirt and top set. There were subtle differences in the way Misha wore her outfit, she decided to show off her sexy white bra underneath the top and her skirts hem was slightly shorter. To complete the look she opted for a pair of Jimmy Choo’s Abel silver glitter pointed pumps, a red clutch and a statement red lipstick.
I really like how Vanessa kept with the romantic and sensual theme of the outfit! She also proves that less is more with accessories when you choose the right few pieces. Unfortunately, Katharine Kidd isn’t stocked in the UK, but here are some alternatives to re-create Vanessa’s look – check out this Alice + Olivia feather dress (£648.05) or this Valentino lace and organza dress (£2,929) and pale pink sandals (£28). Whose look do you prefer?
