Who Wore It Better? 2006 Chanel Fall Couture LBD

Two fabulous ladies, one gorgeous Chanel couture dress. Can you believe Cate Blanchett first wore this 2006 Chanel Fall couture dress in 2006 at the London premiere of Volver? Socialite Daphne Guinness recently resurrected the same dress and wore it at the Chanel couture collection show. Cate kept her look simple with black opaque tights and boots, while Daphne stepped it up a couple notches with a wide belt and chunky platforms. Whose version do you prefer?

Cate did better with what I felt was a weak dress. As for Daphne I can only say.. "LOL...JUDY JETSON".

Daphne looks like Britney Spears from her Toxic video but Cate looks completely uncomfortable and the fit is frightening...this one goes to Daphne.

HATE the dress but i'm giving this to daphne. the dress looks too plain on cate. it's a strange dress and daphne made it look even stranger which somehow works for her. she looks like she came from outer space. i still hate the dress though. goodness

Cate. She can do no wrong. Plus, Daphne's belt makes an already weird dress jump to trashy.

I have to say Cate; she makes it look classic and simple, which is what I've always loved about Chanel. Daphne looks trashy; it should be illegal to do those kinds of things to a Chanel dress.
