Hello OnoBello.com “Style Revolutionists”, we are here again with the most interesting “Who Wore It Better?” fashion feature to spice up your day!
We are sure you remember this Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 red cape gown made famous by Lupita Nyong’oat the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards back in January (To check out our Style Inspiration on Lupita at the Golden Globes, please click here.) Well Thai actress Nong Poy decided to challenge Lupita by wearing the same dress in the same colour to the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards last Sunday (April 13, 2014).
Both ladies look great but to us we think Lupita did the dress justice. The colour goes well with her skin tone. What do you think?

Jennifer Olize, a professional events guru of at Le Reve Events and Creative Director of annual hit show ‘Music Meets Runway’ wore this fushia pink ASOS cut-out sides and back dress for a photoshoot at her popular fashion retail store known as “Le Reve Pieces”. She paired the dress with a bold signature piece necklace from her jewellery line and accessorised further with a beige pair of Christian Louboutin classic pumps.
Lillian Unachukwu on ther hand, is a celebrity stylist and runs her fashion outfit called Liam Fashion Agency. Lillian opts for a black version of the same dress, accessories with a hard cuff-like neckpiece, bright pink patent pumps and what has come to be her signature ‘dark sunglasses’ look!
We love both ladies and think there is no winner here, however we have to ask you, whodo you think rocked the dress better?
As we all might know, Angelina Jolie is known as Hollywood’s ‘queen of leg flashes’ through her predictable wardrobe of floor length gowns with long slits. She showed up at the 2012 Producers Guild Awards in January looking effortlessly chic in a Michael Kors black crepe lace accented gown. She completed her chic feminine look with a black Jimmy choo ‘Tube’ clutch and black Ferragamo peep-toes, simple loose curls and natural makeup.
Christina Aguilera flaunted her curves in the same skin tight Michael Kors black crepe with a lace peek-a-boo detailing at the 2012 ALMA Awards in September. She paired the $3,895 black dress with an armful of sparkly silver bracelets from Neil Lane Jewels, glittering Christian Louboutin ‘Decorapumps’ platforms, heavy makeup and a pink and purple ponytail.
I give kudos to Christina for challenging Angelina on her turf but you just can’t beat the queen. Christina actually looks stunning but the dress looks better on Angelina’s slimmer frame.
Kim Kardashian, a red carpet pro, put her curves to work this Azzedine Alaia monochrome mini, to devastating perfection. She paired this lovely print dress with a black waist belt, panty hose and black open toe booties. She completed it with her hair in a bun, minimal make-up, no jewelry and long eye lashes.
Kendall Jenner, Kim K’s baby sister was spotted in the same dress; I guess she’s been handed down the dress by big sister, which is perfectly ok. Kendall on the other hand did away with the waist belt and the panty hose; she showed off her great long legs and wore a cut away peep-toe, bow-detailed booties.
I think Kendall Jenner beat her big sister hands down; with this dress, less is better and Kendall just got it right. Do you agree?
Reality star Kim Kardashian wore this long-sleeve navy blue Givenchy dress to the Dash Los Angeles store opening. She paired the modest dress with Christian Louboutin python pointee pumps and pulled her hair back neatly in a chignon.
Singer Rihanna was also spotted in the same dress in New York City. “RiRi” completed her demure look with an open toe ankle strapy heels, a necklace to compliment the plunging neckline of the dress and pulled the back of her fringing hair in a chignon.
Okay, you may have noticed by now but I am always on Kim Kardashian’s side, she’s definitely a winner. This Givenchy dress looks better on her curvier physique and her shoes are to die for, wouldn’t you agree?
On July 9th, 2012, Victoria Beckman was spotted wearing one of her very own design to American Idol creator, Simon Fuller’s birthday party in London. The $2,750 Victoria Beckham stretch crepe dress in tangerine features grosgrain straps and a form fitting silhouette.
Victoria paired the dress with a nude colored peep toe pumps, a $595 Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and her hair was neatly pulled back and of course she had her the best accessory ever in her handsome footballer husband David.
Jennifer Lopez was however spotted with the same dress at the filming of American Idol on April 12 2012. JLoon the other hand accessorised differently by pairing the gorgeous with hoop earrings, bracelets and $575 Lanvin Sturdy sandals in smooth leather.
I don’t actually think this is a tough decision, this stretch crepe dress was made for curvy women like Jennifer and the tangerine colour just lite up on her skin.
Jennifer is definitely a winner in my opinion! Who do you think wore it better?
Who do you think wore this $5,495.00 python boots by Christian Louboutin better? Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Monica & Keyshia Cole are all looking fabulous and wore the famous boots in different ways.
I actually think the python boots look better on Jennifer. Do you agree?
This Gucci Spring 2011 dress seems to have been favoured by a few celebrities including former Miss Ghana WAG Menaye Donkor, Reality Star Kim Kardashian, Super model Chanel Iman, and Actress Clauda Jordan and of course not forgetting the runway models.
Celebrities seem to love this two-tone monochrome colour block white and black Stella McCartney dress that we spotted three celebrities wearing the same dress from Stella McCartney’s 2012 collection.
The three singers Alicia Keys, Mel B and Monica wore the same dress on different outings; Mel B opted to wear hers with a black pair of Versace pumps, Alicia went for a similar pair of pumps but from Stella McCartney while Monica favoured a pair from Giuseppe Zanotti. Monica added colour with the ensemble with a green Hermes Birkin handbag.
The form-fitting knee length dress accentuates any woman’s figure, and the midi length gives it that lady-like quality, the sleeves come down just before the elbow therefore making suitable to go from day to evening.
So, here’s the big question, Who Wore it Better between Monica, Alicia Keys and Mel B?
This gold and white Balmain creation available in a few different styles has been worn by many celebrities.
Tamara Ecclestone wore the famous dress to an event at Battersea Power Station. A month before that Kim Kardashian had worn the same dress to the premiere of Cruel Summer at the Cannes Film Festival.
Actress Zoe Saldana wore a slightly different creation of the Balmain dress that featured a long white material draped from the waist, to a film Miami screening in last year August.
Other notable stars spotted in the same dress include model Alessandra Ambrosio who wore it to a Victoria Secret party and Pop star Katy Perry who also wore the same dress a party in the French capital during Paris Fashion Week.
A while back everyone was talking about rapper Kanye West wearing a Celine blouse from Spring/Summer 2011. It was kind of odd seeing a man wear a blouse from a womenswear fashion label, just goes to show that you should expect anything when it comes to fashion.
Here, Kanye wears the blouse with the sleeves undone and shirt unbuttoned exposing his chest and combines it with a pair of straight blue jeans and layers of gold chain necklace.
The original look from Celine Spring/Summer 2011 runway shows a model wearing the same print silk blouse with matching pants. Recently we spotted Nigerian fashion designer Lanre DaSilva Ajayi wearing the same Celine blouse but pairs it with skinny blue jeans and nude peep-toes pumps.
