Both English roses; both royalty in their respective lives, Emily Blunt and Pippa Middleton took to the style stakes in a stunning creation by Roksanda Ilincic.
First up, Emily attended the Germany photo call for ‘The Five Year Engagement’ back in June in the ‘Amu’ dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Looking resplendent in the red wool-crepe cowl-neck dress, Emily paired her look with nude peep-toe booties and her signature glossy bob. We particularly love the unexpected details this seemingly simple red dress has to offer: navy back-panel and a striking yellow trim that runs down the side.
Also slipping in to Roksanda Ilincic was our very own (potential) Lady-In-Waiting, Pippa Middleton, who wore a slightly modified version of the same dress to the launch of her party planning book ‘Celebrate’ back in October. Pippa opted for a burgundy hue, choosing to go easy on the accessories and teaming her look with simple black pumps. Her minimalist approach here reminds us of big sis Kate, although the future queen is known to throw a statement clutch or jacket into the mix every so often!
So, who wins in the style stakes? Roksanda Ilincic is every high-flyers go-to designer for head turning dresses, and we think both ladies in questions pulled off their looks with aplomb!
But being a fash off, there can only one (real) winner, and for us, Emily steals the show in red! We prefer the sleeveless look with a heavier neckline, and the bold colour pops to perfection. Pippa, too, looks fabulous, but the burgundy colour (although very a/w) is slightly yawn-inducing. Not much to ‘Celebrate’ with this look (pun intended).
Do you agree with our fash verdict? Whose look are you digging?
