Celebrity Style Smackdown. Who Wore It Best?

April 8, 2010 • Celebrity Style

Fergie vs. Jessica Seinfeld in Valentino

The Winner: Fergie.  It would be hard to ruin this gorgeously feathered frock from Valentino, but Seinfeld seems to do her darnedest to try. The feathery tiers do more than enough to spice up the dress on their own, as Fergie seems to understand with her minimal accessories. Seinfeld makes the blaring mistake of pairing the neutral style with a brightly colored (and ugly) bag and belt buckle, which only distract and take away from the elegant simplicity of the dress.

Annalynne McCord vs. Kristin Cavallari in Donna Mizani

The Winner: Kristin Cavallari. Though hardly the style icon, Cavallari pulls off a tough feat with this skintight, cut out dress. With her strappy heels, sleek hair and chain-link bag, she makes the dress look chic and edgy without coming off the least bit trashy. McCord, on the other hand, channels Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman (only the beginning of Pretty Woman) by pairing the skimpy mini with over the knee boots.

Jessica Szohr vs. Ali Landry in Ports 1961

The Winner: Ali Landry. he former Miss America clearly knows a thing or two about pulling together a look. By belting the shimmery dress in a similar, but not identical, metallic shade, Landry creates a more flattering proportion of her shape. Also her sleek chignon paired with minimal jewelry allow the dress to truly shine. Szohr looks sloppier since the dress just kind of hangs on her without any polish or dimension.

Kelly Ripa vs. Sarah Jessica Parker in Stella McCartney

The Winner: Both pint-sized beauties rock this flirty McCartney frock. But I actually love the pairing of the airy dress with the sturdier boyfriend blazer so Sarah Jessica Parker makes the biggest style statement. Her long, tousled waves, chunky jewelry and platform heels make the look current, fresh and truly fashion. Ripa looks great in the dress and really makes with her chains and nude pumps, but lacks the complete overall look.

Doutzen Kroes vs. Estelle in Zac Posen

The Winner: Doutzen Kroes. Its easy to see this Zac Posen dress makes quite the dramatic statement and is again, best left to its own devices. Neither Kroes and Estelle are  strangers to making a  fashion splash, but Kroes made the wiser choice by pulling back and not adding any additional fuss. Her open neckline and smooth hair provide the perfect blank canvas to allow the dress to do its work. Estelle strikes out this time with her heavy blue eyeshadow, which makes her look more drag queen than diva.
