I’ve seen this question come up a few times:

Who wore the Erdem Margot Lace Dress better?
Alexa Chung for Net-A-Porter Spring Magazine, Michelle Williams at Blue Valentine premiere.
I don’t see how this is even a question.

    I really love Michelle in this one.. I think the neckline is GORGEOUS on her… and I don’t think blonde’s can go wrong in red :) The full skirt is fun, but the way Michelle is wearing it seems for attainable to the everyday girl!

  2. Amanda says:

    No question indeed. Lovely!

  3. HOW is this a question? Michelle Williams looks so frumpy. Alexa Chung looks gorgeous!

  4. Um yeah, no question…how fabulous is Alexa Chung??? (c: I LOVE THAT DRESS!

  5. Katie says:

    As you said, no question … BUT, I think it has more to do with the way the dress is styled, and the poses of Alexa and Michelle. As it was for a magazine, the photo of Alexa was probably selected as the best of MANY. You can also guarantee that it’s been retouched to make it look as perfect as possible. Michelle is standing in a way that wouldn’t flatter anyone, in just about any dress (even one so gorgeous) … I guess what I’m saying is that, in my opinion, the comparison is almost unfair!

  6. uuummmm “cah-chung” . . . alexa looks gorgeous!!!

  7. Nikki says:

    Alexa. I like that she added volume to the skirt. It makes her waist look so tiny…not like she needed that.

  8. Mrs. Bliss says:

    I agree with what Katie has said. Alexa looks great! But Michelle would have worn it better if she was styled better…

  9. Definitely Alexa!! I’m a big fan of hers. Michelle is a gorgeous gal just needs a better stylist!

  10. Its shocking how frumpy that dress looks on Michelle. It has to be the way she’s standing.

  11. Michelle sort of looks like my grandma in this pic. Chung all the way!

  12. Miss Walker says:

    Loving the ‘fullness’ of Alexa’s! xoxo

  13. I love that dress with the leopard shoe (Michelle) but I think it looks better with the petticoat (Alexa). Can it be a tie??

    It pains me not to pick Michelle because I adore her but she is kind of a train wreck in this pic….. Sigh….

  15. FULL SKIRT FULL SKIRT FULL SKIRT. Way to go Alexa. But I do like Michelle’s hair, not gonna lie.

  16. Simply LKJ says:

    Love Alexa’s look, Michelle looks like she’s wearing a paper bag! Sorry, not a fan of white blonde hair and dark black eyebrows either!!

  17. Jessie says:

    alexa is gorg. i love this dress.

  18. Stephanie says:

    the dress doesn’t look like it fits michelle. (i love her but i can’t stand her hair like that. makes her look old and dated!)

  19. I’m assuming we like he full-skirted version, right? Because it’s adorable. Poor Michelle looks like she got draped in a moist doily.

    Of course, if you like it on Michelle, I take it all back. ;)
