Katy Perry and Camilla Bella Wear Marchesa's White Feather Dress 2009-11-06 13:00:22

Who Wore It Better? White, Feathery Marchesa

Camilla Belle and Katy Perry's styles couldn't be more different, but clearly the two have a shared love for white, feathery Marchesa. Camilla first wore this gorgeous piece from the Spring '10 line at an event in LA a couple weeks ago. She paired it with strappy black sandals and sparkly jewels. Then Katy sported the same fancy frock onstage at the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards in Germany with a pair of sequined pumps. Both look like delicate swans, but who wore Marchesa better?

Camilla looks classy in it. Katy has too much makeup on, the shoes are competing with the dress, and she should have worn something under the dress. Did Katy have the dress altered to be super short? Overall it does give off that Ice Skater - Dancing with the Stars Vibe. I can see 70 year old grandmothers loving all that lace and feathers.

It's not a fabulous dress. But it still looks better on the woman on the left side.

can we get a "Neither, Gasp!" choice?

I love that Katy went with simple stud earrings (no other adornments) and soft glossy curls. Love the classic shape of the shoe, though a "gunmetal" feel as opposed to "glitter" is more appropriate here. But god, that horrendous eye makeup -- and you can see the shadow of her breasts through the dress -- ew ew ew. This could have been a knockout, but the whole kit already looks dated. This is consistent with Katy's aesthetic, which tries to channel "glamourous-pinup" but more often than not communicates "seedy-Vegas-showgirl-who-never-got-over-her-princess-barbie-complex". Such a disappointment.

wow; I actually love the dress! it is definitely an ice skater look; but maybe I like it because I have always loved ice skating costumes haha! but I actually kind of love it on both of them - I agree that Katy does make it tacky and slutty by not wearing anything undeneath; but I still like how it looks on her and I love her shoes. I also love how it looks on Camila and the strappy shoes are fabulous...

Horrible dress, but I think Katy is better at pulling unusual things off.

Katy looks far more confident in her look, which is required for a piece so bold.

It's funny that all the comments say Camilla.. but the votes are leaning towards Katy!

Camilla because of the simple and barely-there shoe. With a dress that elaborate, the last thing you want to throw on with lace and feathers is some rhinestones. It's too much going on... take away focus. Camilla!

I love the dress! And it does look much better on Camilla. Is it that hard for Katy to properly cover up her tatas?

Camilla can pull off just about anything, and she looks lovely here despite my not loving the dress. Perry looks trashy, as usual.

Camilla looks very nice... classy. Katy turns it into slutwear, with those bare breasts screaming "look at me!"
