Miley Cyrus was the first to strut the red carpet in this Marchesa Spring 2009 strapless dress at the 2008 American Music Awards back in November 2008. The beautiful dress had a black chiffon overlay which was draped half over the gold embellished bodice and skirt. Miley completed her glamourous look with black satin Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and hair tied up in a loose updo.
If you’re familiar with Georgina Chapman then you’re probably not surprised to see her re-wearing that dress as she is continously promoting her brand by donning her own designs to every major red carpet event such as the Quintessentially Party For “Nowhere Boy” during the Cannes Film Festival which she and her husband Harvey Weinstein attended yesterday. Georgina wore a lengthened version of the strapless dress and accessorized with a Chanel bag and black t-bar pumps.
I’m surprised to find myself preferring Miley in this dress. Georgina’s version lost half of its appeal because of the modified length and I also like that Miley styled her hair into an updo. The bare neckline gave her a more defined silhouette. Who’s side are you on?
