Spring’s obsession with all things floral helped unearth our inner florist and firmly stamped these posy pretties onto wardrobe staples. Be it floor-skimming wispy maxis à la Alberta Feretti or lace-infused digital bloom prints courtesy of Erdem, botanical prints are blossoming everywhere – and here, Corinne Bailey Rae and Alexis Bledel battle it out in a beautiful Stella McCartney botanical print dress with two contrasting looks.
Corinne perfected understated chic at the Elle Style Awards back in February, pairing the dress with kitten heel sling backs and minimal makeup. The Leeds-born songstress opted for an accessory-free look, which we think works by bringing the floral print out in full bloom.
But Gilmore girl Alexis Bledel beat Brit Corrine to it; sporting the tank version of the dress at the US Weekly’s 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers event, held at Lavo, NYC, back in September.
Alexis looked flawless, mixing surfer-chic waves with a dewy complexion, but we’re not so sure on the clutch/shoe combo – the lemon coloured Giuseppe Zanotti wedges appear a good size too big, and maybe a smaller clutch would keep all eyes on the dress.
Who do you think looks blooming fash-tastic in this floral Stella number? Cast your votes below!
