Who Wore it Better? Anna or Mary-Kate

Both Anna Dello Russo, fashion director of Vogue Nippon, and Mary-Kate rocked this amazing Balmain dress. But ... who wore it better?

as much as i love anna dello russo, mary-kate looks so much softer than anna does. so, i'd have to go with mary-kate.

I think the dress looks better on Mary Kate, but I think I like the way Anna wore it better.

I think I like the dress better on Mary Kate, but I think I like how Anna wore it better.

Crystal said...

I think Mary-Kate only because it sort of looks like the dress is wearing Anna, rather than the other way around.

Anna all the way. The sheer black tights and the black booties complement the dress better than the nude colored Proenza heels. Also, we must take into consideration that Anna's body is more like an actual models than Mary-Kates. Therefore, the dress looks like it SUPPOSED to look an Anna.

i like it best on mary-kate !

It fits on Anna better (length-wise), but I prefer Mary-Kate's styling - the hair, makeup & shoes.

I think that maybe the way anna wore it was a bit of an obvious choice, while mary kate freshened up the look.

Marianne said...

I think on this particular photo the sharp shoulders look a bit overpowering on Anna. But the dress looks cool on both of them and it's fun to see how different their look is even in the same dress :)

MK, on Anna it looks to stony

Madeline said...

Mary Kate looks infinately better. Though both look kind of unhappy in both the pictures.

RebeccaR said...

Definately Mary-Kate
she manages to wear a designer piece without getting overwhelmed by the garment, you look at her as much as you look at that stunning dress!
Her figure looks better too

Jessica said...

i do believe Mary-Kate wore it best!! i like how she wore it with bare legs and those nude colored heels.

KatieB said...

Although I like both of them, the way mary-kate wore it is a bit more wearable so more appealing. It just looks too harsh on anna along with her harshly straight hair, maybe if she had a looser style of hair that day to soften the look up a bit. She does look stunning if you look at her body but if you excuse me for perhaps being rude i think she is slightly too old to be wearing a young dress like this, whereas it looks totally great on mary kate.
I do love the way she pinned the brooch to it though, think it looks better with the brooch than without.

Not gonna lie; Anna's looking a little frightening. Mary-kate. Hands down (for me)

Anna looks tougher, but in Mary Kate the dress is definitely chic! and MK styling (the hair, the shoes) are perfect to this dress.
Congratulations for your blog, I really, really like what you do around here! kiss

You're Welcome said...

mary-kate. i love the bare legs and nude heels. the shoulders are overwhelm me when i look at the dress on anna.

My New Favourite Thing said...

Even though Anna looks like the fashion Terminator, she rocks it better than MK. Her hair doesn't detract from the tennis-ball shoulders and sheer tights work so well with the dress. Jealous!

Anna's face look ...weird .

i dont like it on either. i do like the dress though. anna looks kinda harsh and scary. and marykate may be too petite...it makes her look like she has no neck. maybe that has to do with her posture. i guess if i had to choose, marykate looks better in it.

Florent said...

Girlfiend, there is no competition! Mary-Kate is rockin' it!!!!

Emma said...

I have to say Mary-Kate wore it better. She looks much softer, while Anna Dello Russo looks a bit too harsh for my taste.

musingsofagiraffe said...

Mary Kate obviously!

Louise, Julie, Marine said...

Mary-kate of course !! :-) This dress is amazing by the way ...

Hannah said...

The fit is better on Anna, especially the length of the sleeves. MK's slouch detracts from the shoulders, unfortunately. But overall I think they both wore it well.

Lucy in the Sky said...

that would be MK, f'sho :D
