In the battle of the dresses this week, rising style star, Bella Thorne, and fashion veteran Jada Pinkett-Smith both sport a dreamy Blumarine dress from the fall 2013 collection. Featuring stripes woven into a delicate floral print, the dress – which is surprisingly light and airy for an autumn/winter offering – isn’t any old simple thigh-skimming number. The asymmetrically draped skirt adds interest to the look, and both Bella and Jada chose to up the glam ante with statement accessories, no doubt.
First up to slip into the gorgeous little number was Mrs. Will Smith, who wore the dress to the New York premiere of her husband and son starrer, After Earth, back in June. Jada accessorised the dress with a candy pink Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch and Azzedine Alaïa strappy sandals, whilst hair was left down in glossy curls and make up was kept very neutral, to complement the soft tones of the dress.
But catching up with Jada in the style race was Bella Thorne, who attended the Planes LA premiere wearing the same dress. Bringing an eye-popping twist to her pretty outfit, Bella slipped into a pair of fizzy green Bionda Castana Conseulo pumps, and finishing off her look was a hair-matched braid and soft pink lip.
But who has claim to the fash-off throne? It’s a difficult decision this week, given both Bella and Jada look summer-perfect in their respective looks, but we’ve got to (reluctantly) pick a single winner…and this week, we’re going with Bella!
Jada looks impeccably polished as always, but Bella’s look brings something different – she definitely made us look twice! Pastel hues paired with popping brights spell perfection when it comes to bringing an alternative edge to a red carpet look, and Bella hit the (sartorial) nail on the head.
