Gwyneth Paltrow

Where: Coach’s 70th Anniversary at the Mayfair Arts Club, London on Wednesday 7th September 2011.

How She Wore It: As the face of luxury goods company – Coach, Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow attended its 70th Anniversary dinner in this artfully draped Lanvin dress.

She styled the Grecian-inspired outfit by the French label with a gold chain-link choker, a Coach python leather clutch and a pair of crimson Lanvin peep-toe booties.

Gwyneth completed her ensemble by letting her straight blonde locks down and choosing light pink lipstick.

Rihanna in Lanvin - BellaNaijaStyle - November 2013 - BellaNaija

Where: Heading to the Power 106’s Valentine’s Crush Concert in Los Angeles, California on Thursday 14th February 2013.

How She Wore It: On Valentine’s Day 2013, Rihanna was spotted heading to the Power 106’s Valentine’s Crush Concert and thereafter to The Blok Club, in this same dress.

Rihanna who tends to serve extreme edgy looks, toned it down on this occasion; going for a old-Hollywood glamour. She accessorized with gold drop earrings, a black fur coat and gold sandals.

With her soft wavy locks stylishly placed behind her shoulders, she finished with devil-red coloured lipstick.

Oluchi Orlandi

Where: Africa’s Next Top Model Launch Party at Pravada Lounge, Victoria Island, Lagos on Friday 8th November 2013.

How She Wore It: When you are a supermodel, you have an advantage as clothes tend to look better on you. At the launch party for the Africa’s Next Top Model series, Oluchi Orlandi was picture-perfect in the Lanvin number.

The dress which hugged her coveted top model figure, was styled with gold stud earrings, a gold bracelet, a silver wrist watch and a pair of leopard print Tabitha Simmons sandals.

Oluchi was camera ready with smouldering eyes, wavy locks and neutral lipstick.

The dress is SOLD OUT!

So…who are you loving in the dress?

    They all wore it differently and beautifully, but if I’m to pick. I’d go with Gwyneth. I like the fit on her and the accessories gave the outfit life.

    Rihanna’s Tom Ford’s sandals made the dress perfect…hate the red shoe didnt work with the dress and Oluchi’s Tabitha’s shoes was too distracting..infact that’s the first thing you notice which shudnt be…since the dress is primary and the shoes and jewelry pieces become secondary.

      November 20, 2013 at 10:07 am

      lmao at Tabitha’s shoes, i think Riri did it for me sorry Miss Oluchi next time

    Riri did it for me, the dress with her accessories and shoes, Oluchi didnt wear the shoulder well, then the shoes look horrible with that dress.

    November 20, 2013 at 10:07 am

    Rihanna’s dress fits her more,,,our dear Oluchi follows

    November 20, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Gwyneth for me! Love her shoes, love her hair, love her accesories. Rihanna’s ombre looks too synthetic and I don’t understand Oluchi’s shoes

  17. Nnenna

    November 20, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Rihanna slayed it in every way! The dress is simple and her gold strappy heels are a perfect fit for it! Next is Oluchi and lastly, Gwyneth! Her red shoes spoilt it!#TeamRiri #RihNavy

    None of them. The dress didn’t need strappy sandals. Nor did it need a red peep toe. Nude shoes would have been ideal. And I also think a curvier body shape would have pulled it off better.
