A one-gown-two-girls situation has presented itself once again, so we couldn’t let the chance of a fash-off slip our hands! This week, Dita Von Teese and actress Minka Kelly have us in awe of their matching Caroline Herrera Fall 2013 red carpet gowns, and, boy did the ladies do well.
First to slip into the gorgeous, deep purple floral lace gown was Minka, who took to the Met Gala red carpet back in May, looking every bit show-stopping. Channelling the Gala’s punk theme best she could, Minka opted for a braided updo, accented perfectly with a dark lip, and finished with a waist-cinching belt to match.
But giving Minka a run for her style cred was Dita Von Teese, who appeared in the same gown at Wallis Annenberg Centre For The Performing Arts Inaugural Gala, last month. Styled with her signature Fifties pin-up hair and a deep red lip, Dita carried a matching clutch and added the waist-cinching belt to her look, too.
So, both ladies carried off the same stunning gown with aplomb, but being a fash-off, there can only be one winner…
After winning our hearts for the second time around – she made it into our Met Gala red carpet roundup – we’re crowning Minka Kelly this fash-off’s champ. Dita’s look is faultless, too, but the recognisable hair and make-up makes it feel a little ‘samey’.
Agree with our style verdict? Whose look wins for you?
