Who Wore It Better? Joan Allen and Kelly Ripa in Marc Jacobs Crepe Dress

Who Wore It Better? Marc Jacobs Lavender Crepe Dress

Kelly Ripa and Joan Allen went ladylike chic in this Marc Jacobs design. The candy color is just the thing to get us all excited about our Spring wardrobes, and suits both blonds coloring quite well. Joan went a little wild with her graphic black-and-white pumps, while Kelly broke out her tallest, spindliest Yves Saint Laurent heels to give the sweet frock a vixen appeal. Shoes can sometimes make or break an ensemble, no? Who do you think is working this polished look best?

Joan Looks Blah In That Dress. Her Clutch Is Nice Though.

I like it better on Joan. Even with the black and white shoes. :) That dress just does not fit Kelly at all.

I don't think that dress looks great on either of them. Maybe it could be the way Kelly is standing, she seems to be slumping....

There's something wrong about this dress. It doesn't look right and neither pull it off.

I think both of them could use a shorter hem line, but Kelly looks better. I wish I could see Joan's heels because it looks like she is wearing house slippers.

it looks chicer on kelly, but the tattoo kills the vibe.

dress is too long on her petite figure and those shoes are far too clunky looking for such a delicate looking dress.

They both look nice but it looks like Kelly is being swallowed by th e dress.

I don't love it on either of them...the color is so pretty though! My favorite. I think it looks too big for Kelly, kind of overwhelming on her petite frame. I think it's the length.

Neither. The dress would work better with strappy heels.

I ♥ Marc Jacobs! Kelly wore it better. I like it with those shoes and it looks better on her petite frame. I also like that little tat on her leg. Its like nice girl/biker chick lol.

Kelly looks better; the black layer underneath also looks better on her.
