Kelly Osbourne and Rihanna in Marc Jacobs.

Kelly Osbourne & Rihanna in Marc Jacobs Pagoda dressWith a dress that makes such a massive statement, you may think it would pretty hard to vary the ways in which to wear it. But both Kelly Osbourne and Rihanna managed to rock this amazing, Marc Jacobs Pagoda dress in two totally different styles.

Kelly O, went for a more classic statement, wearing studded courts, large, black, wing-frame sunglasses and a thick leather belt to cinch the slightly more loosely fitted dress in at the waist.

Rihanna kept true to her edgy style, in a more fitted dress, with ghetto-style bling, leopard-print Louboutin ankle boots and bright red lips… And a train-drivers hat… (?)

I really like both of these looks, okay they both pretty much say, “I love fashion” but the way Rihanna has worn the dress more fitted ,shows of her perfect curves, but I equally like the way that Kelly has created a gathered / folded effect that complements the sleeve detail by cinching with a belt. Both the boots and the courts work brilliantly and you could rock both these looks for day and night. Though I think Kelly has a slight edge for a daytime look and Rihanna for the evening.

The dress is currently available at Harvey Nichols online for £975. If that is a little out of your price range, then the high street have something similar in different colours: Left, Puff shoulder crepe dress €21 Penney’s. Right: Indigo Shoulder Dress £45 Miss Selfridge.

      She has the perfect figure for that dress! Glad you like the high street version, shame they don’t come in grey though, it’s definitely that colour that makes that Marc Jacobs dress so great.

    Actually, one of the reasons I liked the Selfridge dress is the colour…

    But I know what you mean about the grey..

    Usually I love Kelly O’s style but I think she can occassionally look like a bit of a fashion victim, and I think this might be one of those cases. Rihanna is totally rocking that dress, though – girl can accessorise!
