Fashionista War: Rita Wilson Vs. Nicole Kidman in Valentino Fall 2014

Today we have a fashion battle between two different actresses who the same dress, different ways and at different times. So let the war begin. 

Rita Wilson attended the 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' premiere on Tuesday(March 15th) at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square in NYC. She hit the blue carpet in a VALENTINO FALL 2014 long sleeve olive tulle butterfly embroidered v-neck dress which she layered with olive lining. She accessorized with a black clutch, silver bracelets and glittery silver sandals. Center part curls and a smokey eye completed her look. 

However Nicole Kidman wore the dress first at the Before I Go To Sleep screening at the Ham Yard Hotel in London on September 4, 2014. Her look was accessorized with a long necklace, gold LOUBOUTIN sandals and drop earrings. On the beauty end, she went with a side parted ponytail and a pink lip color which topped off her look.  

So which one of these ladies won the fashion war?

The was an easy fashion win for Nicole Kidman. Rita appeared to have altered her dress from the runway version which did not work in her favor. The matching olive lining makes the dress look heavy, the silhouette isn't flattering on her, v-neckline looks weird and the black clutch just doesn't work. Also she could have benefitted from a sleeker, less distracting hairstyle. Nicole's elegant look worked for the screening and the styling let the dress remain the focal point as it should. Weigh in, who do you think won the fashion war?

  1. Not a fan of this shade of green, but an easy win for Nicole. The dress suits her and works on her delicate frame so much more, and I also prefer her sandals, and the addition of the long necklace works nicely with the low neckline.
