Chanel Fall 2011 Dress
In my fashion coverage of the SAG Awards yesterday, you may have remembered seeing British actress Emilia Clarke wear this black and white dress by Chanel. It wasn't the first time we've seen this feathery gown. Zoe Kravitz wore the same dress 2 months earlier.
Left: Emilia Clarke wore the Chanel Fall RTW frock to Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles (29 January 2012). The 'Game of Thrones' actress looked charming in the organic cotton and voile dress, which has a fully feathered black skirt. Emilia's dress features a leaf-motif waistband.
Middle: Zoe Kravitz wore the same Chanel dress on the 30th November 2011, to Unicef's Snowflake Ball in New York. She omitted the belt from the sculpted white bodice, which has a high collar and puffy shoulders.
Right: Latvian model Ginta Lapina wears the dress on the Chanel Fall RTW 2011 runway, paired with black lace-up boots and sheer hand gloves. A very girly-grunge look.
Both girls wore their look with a strong red lip colour. You will notice that the black ruffle detailing along the sleeves are different on each dress. Emilia's is tucked in, while Zoe's features an outer ruffled trim. Emilia wore her hair up in a loose upstyle and Zoe kept it clinical in an edgy tied-up bob.
Who Wore It Better?
I prefer the dress with the waistband so my choice is Emilia. She makes it look demure and ladylike. Also, I can't get past Zoe's mullet-fringe hairstyle. What are your thoughts?
