Katy Perry was the first to wear this cute navy striped D&G Spring 2009 sequined sailor minidress to the D&G Spring 2009 fashion show back in September 2008. Katy wore her dress with a rosette detail on the shoulder, red lips and a pair of white, red & blue platform wedges from the same D&G collection.
X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke followed into Katy’s footsteps by wearing the same D&G dress to the ELLE Style Awards 2009 a few days ago. The singer wore her dress without the rosette detail and accessorized with a black bow clutch and matching black pumps.
This is a tough decision for me because I really love the dress on both. I prefer the dress as Alexandra wore it without the rosette detail, but I was a bit disappointed with her clutch & shoe choice. Black just doesn’t work with that sailor-esque look and feel. And because I simply adored Katy’s platform wedges, it’s slighty 1:0 for Katy. Do you agree?
