I just blogged about finally warming up to the sheer trend last week, so this couldn’t have come at a better time. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley appeared at the Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiere at the 2011 Moscow International Film Festival wearing a sheer Gucci dress from their fall collection. This dress is definitely not for the faint of heart; I think it takes a certain kind of attitude to make the dress look sexy and not trashy, and of course the Victoria’s Secret model has got it! She works the hell out of this dress and is a total stunner! I love how her red nails and what looks like reddish lip stain pop against the olive of her dress.
Earlier this year in April, Beyoncé was spotted at the Ritz Hotel in Paris also wearing a sheer dress from the Gucci Fall 2011 collection for a photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar. Both Beyoncé and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley paired their dress with Gucci Leight Python & Suede T-strap platform sandals. So, I have to ask, who do you think wore it better?
Personally, I like Beyoncé’s dress better (pink and purple? Sold!), but I do think Rosie has the better body (Read: Longer legs!), which is key in making a dress like this look so good. I wish they both switched hairstyles. While I would have preferred Beyoncé with her hair down, straight and sleek, I think Rosie would have looked better in a soft, low bun. Overall, I guess I’d have to give it to Rosie, although Beyoncé does give her a good fight!
On a side note, what is it about this dress that made both of them stand with their legs so wide apart? :S
