Anne Hathaway was the first to wear this exquisite strapless dress from Marchesa’s Spring 2009 collection when she attended the 46th New York Film Festival back in September 2008. The monochrome dress had 2 thigh high side slits and and floral embroideries on the entire gown. Anne’s look was perfected with an elegant updo and standout drop earrings.
Georgina Chapman who hardly wears anything else than her own brand for red carpet events, decided to up the ante and customized the same gown with gold embroideries to make sure she stands out in a sea of evening gowns at the 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Georgina finished her look with black satin pumps and a matching black clutch.
Even though Georgina’s version looks more lush than Anne’s, I do prefer it on Anne. The embroideries on her dress are not so much in-your-face and Anne’s updo allows to see her beautiful neckline. 1:0 for Anne. What do you think? Is it Anne or Georgina for you?
