Hey, look! It’s another instalment of two girls, one dress, and we’re pretty darn excited about it! Splitting the style brigade at HQ this week are actresses Olivia Wilde and Kara Tointon (she, of Eastenders) in an eye-catching, resort 2014 Clover Canyon dress.
Getting first dibs on the Cuban-inspired collection was Olivia Wilde, who wore said dress to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon, in August last year. Flying the flag high for head turning print, Olivia completed her look with matching parrot green heels and clutch, and opted for super-simple make-up with a subtly volumised up-do.
Catching up with the eternally chic Ms. Wilde is Kara Tointon, who wore the same dress to InStyle magazine’s The Best of British Talent pre-BAFTA party, last week. Opting to go accessory-free; Kara rounded off her look with punchy turquoise pumps, bold red lips and a swept back bouffant hairstyle.
So, who takes the style crown this week? Although both ladies brought their own, we’re going with Olivia on this one. The pairing of tropical green accessories against the gorgeous dress works wonders, and even lets Olivia’s near washed-out complexion off the hook. We love Kara’s look, but the ancient hairstyle and lack of accessories give off an unfinished vibe.
