This week’s Rate or Slate see’s a rather interestingly kitted out Rihanna, and the First Lady showing us why the fashion world sat up and took notice when she followed her husband into the White House.
For the Battleship Japan photo call Rihanna went with a directional, all-black Givenchy Fall 2012 number – we can always trust RiRi to be a little different!
Michelle Obama attended the 2012 Nickelodeon 25th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards in a Wes Gordon Spring 2012 tunic and metallic jeans (or jeggings, we suspect), whilst Tulisa was spotted leaving the BBC Radio One studios in a symmetrical, hyper print Topshop dress.
We’re far too torn between these style choices, so it’s over to our Style Jury….
Fashion News Ed says:
Rihanna: “Sorry Rihanna, you look like a bag lady here… love the hair though.”
Michelle Obama: “Michelle is hands down the winner for me. I love how elegant and gorgeous the First Lady looked in what are possibly jeggings! Just goes to show that it doesn’t matter what you wear and where you wear it to – you can still exude class!”
Tulisa: “I do also love Tulisa’s dress… always love a celeb in high street! It’s a bit ‘been there done that’ as I feel Tulisa lives in these types of dresses, but I don’t blame her, as they are perfect for her body shape. Thumbs up!”
“RiRi – no to the gloves, add colour pop shoes, 1st Lady – Fab and Tulisa – love the whole outfit except the bag.” – @ItsAyesh via Twitter
“Miss O!” Crystal Simone Ferguson via Facebook
Verdict: Rate to the power of one!
With our Facebook followers giving Michelle Obama a whopping 80% of votes, and a rather approving Fashion News Ed, the First Lady is this week’s firm winner! Rihanna, we know you’re an eclectic dresser, but this Givenchy outfit is not your finest moment, and thumbs up to Tulisa for flying the high street flag, although we’d love to see her come out of her dress comfort zone.
