Who Wore It Better? Voluminous Giambattista Valli Dress

It's not easy wearing a dress that accentuates — no, dramatizes — your hips, but there are at least two ladies who took the risk. Diane Kruger wore her ivory Giambattista Valli dress in Paris at a movie premiere in November. She accessorized with deep red velvet pumps and a white watch. Voila. Marissa Tomei also wore Valli's daring creation, albeit the black version, to an inaugural ball in Washington. She kept her look monochrome with black satin pumps. It's a toughie to pull off, but who worked it better?

id have to say the dress on the laft, because it still looks graceful and amazing no matter how plain the dress is.

Diane Kruger has better posture, I think, which makes her look more queenly. Morissa Tomei looks nice too though.

it might be because i like the white dress better, but i think that diane looks better here.
Shadowdamage Shadowdamage 8 years that I keep staring at the dress on Marisa what it needs is a chunky, arty, but close-to-the neck statement piece..perhaps in aquas and blues...something. Just 2c. On Diane I would redo her hair and just go for a totally sleek retro feel and amp up the lips. The shoes aren't enough on their own.

I love the cut of the dress and far from being bad for hips I think it'd be great for larger hips as it totally bypasses them and flares out, like an exaggerated A-line. Saying that I keep wanting to PAINT something onto both cases there's no colour on the women to balance out the severity and structure of the garment. LIPSTICK...look into it! Marisa looks so washed out - as much as I like black this is just too harsh and would, I think, be a better night look. Diane can wear white well and the red velvety shoes are cute, but I still keep looking for something to stand out, and nothing really does.

I saw the black dress on another website, and i love it so much i saved the pic. I actually think it looks best on a petite woman as opposed to the supermodel Gisele type. I'm 5'3" and i would definitely wear it in black.

I am IN LOVE with this dress! Very S/S '09 Gareth Pugh silhouettes! I chose Diane... that white color is fabulous and it looks more tailored and crisp on her.

I love this dress! It's so "new look." Not sure f it's the angle of the camera, but the dress looks a wee bit too long on Marisa. So I picked Diane.

I choose Diane but I think it's just because her posture is better. It changes the look a lot. I hate her shoes.

Diane. Marissa would have looked better if she had broken up the black with a thick coloured sash or belt.

Well Diane of course! Not that Marisa looks bad, but Diane looks stunningly elegant! And I love the colour of the shoes!
Gwen-G Gwen-G 8 years
I think none

Strangely enough neither of them.. but I do love the dress itself. It's cute. I can't think of anyone who could really make it work though. :(
Michelann Michelann 8 years
They both look nice but I voted for Diane because the dress doesn't seem to fit Marissa quite right.

This is unusual. With the camera angle, they do look very short.. Not sure what I think about this one.
