At the LA Premiere of RocknRolla in October 2008, Thandie Newton wore a beautiful silvery strapless tulle mini dress from Marchesa’s Spring 2009 collection looking absolutely outstanding. The English actress completed her look with a silver Chanel clutch, black pointy heels and sultry smokey eyes.
Yesterday at the Launch of Topshop/Topman Dinner in New York, model and designer Georgina Chapman flaunted the same modified tulle dress as Thandie which she wore under a black sequinned Marchesa Fall 2008 jacket. Georgina accessorized with a silver necklace, a black clutch and black square-toe pumps.
This is a tough decision. Both women look flawless and carry the dress well. I love it on both of them, but I like the dress slightly more on Thandie as I prefer her accessories and the smokey eyes which are a stark contrast against the romantic nature of the dress. A risk that paid off for Thandie. What do you think?
