Are you ready to Pick Your Fave?

It’s a beautiful sunny day here in Lagos, so BellaNaija Style watchers let’s get your stylexpertise into good use.

Today we have media mogul Mo Abudu, American reality TV star Kim Kardashian and American model Lily Aldridge in a scarf print dress by Parisian label Givenchy.

See how they rocked the piece.

Kim Kardashian

Where: On her Way to a Studio with Kourtney Kardashian in California on Wednesday 27th February 2013.

How She Wore It: It will definitely go into records that Kim Kardashian was one of the most photographed pregnant women in the world.

In February, the reality star who was expecting her daughter North West with rap star Kanye West, took to the streets of California in this Givenchy paisley print dress which features a scoop neckline.

Kim K styled the long tank top dress with a black Valentino biker jacket, a black Balenciaga bag and black open-toe boots. She completed her look with a sleek pony tail and neutral lipstick.

Lily Aldridge

Where: Out & About in New York City on Thursday 21st March 2013.

How She Wore It: 3 weeks later, Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldrige was spotted in the entire same look as Kim, save for the hat.

Lily ran some errands on a sunny Thursday morning in New York City, in the celeb-coveted dress.

She accessorized with a black leather jacket, a black fedora hat, a black Givenchy Pandora messenger bag and a pair of black Alexander Wang ankle boots.

Lily gets a plus for her choice of lipstick. The devil-red coloured pout added a pop of colour to the look.

Where: 2013 Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria Finale at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos on Sunday 29th September 2013

How She Wore It: All the way in Lagos, Nigeria, our cam glam spotted the dress on the red (ahem, blue) carpet for the first time.

CEO Ebony Life TV, Mo Abudu chose the runway version of the dress from the Resort 2013 collection. Kim and Lily chose the commercial version.

The bohemian print dress with a cape, was accessorized with silver drop earrings, a silver wrist watch, a beige clutch and a pair of Christian Louboutin sparkly heels.

The media mogul finished her glam look with wavy locks and red lipstick.

The Dress
Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci presented an uber stylish and contemporary look for the brand’s Resort 2013 presentation. The dress was displayed as the first look from that collection.

The runway version features a cape and a high neckline, while the commercial version is sleeveless and has a scoop neckline.

Design labels are fond of creating runway and commercial looks as the later better appeals to the every day woman.

    Mo wins this one hands down, she gave the dress a perfect fitting, I am a big fan of Kim K’s dress sense but this time around our Mo takes the prize, the other lady is a bit too skinny for the dress…..

    Isnt it interesting that the dress Morning saw fit for red carpet is what Kim and Lilly are using for casual, about town outfits?

    • Naija Realist

      October 7, 2013 at 2:26 pm

      Or one could ask why Kim and Lily are so overdressed just to strut about town or do their shopping? Colomental? LOL!

      No it’s not interesting. Obviously Mo’s version is the more dressy type.

      Dressed up and walking around is what Kim Kardashian does for a living. When have you seen her dressed down? and where is she going to? She is just dressed up to be photographed that’s all.

      if you notice, they are 2 different dresses. Mo is wearing the dressier version, while Lily and Kim are wearing a casual one. look at the neck line

    Soprry LILI does it for me, the others are cleverly disguising their NOT so lean bodies.

    the dress is ugly, especially the arm details. kim wore it best, she covered the ugliest part of the dress with her jacket

    i pick lily . mo was all dressy for the red carpet, kim is fat in this picture, but lily wasn’t prepared for a picture , she isn’t on the red carpet, and she still looks adorable . i believe anyone who doesn’t put all the fancy effort and can still come out looking good is the winner, so its lily.

    They all wore it nicely. NO EXCEPTION!!!!!

    Mo Abudu looks better in this dress. She made an otherwise casual and shapeless-looking dress look fitted and elegant – that is no mean feat.

    They all wore the dress well to suit each occasion I guess, but if you go down to fit I think Mo did justice to the dress. Diversity goes to Lily Aldridge-She managed to give the dress a more edgy look with the bag, shoes, jacket and hat giving texture and style. to her silhouette!
