The head-to-toe red suit look is as rare as it is bold. Not for the faint of heart, the all-over scarlet steez is oft reserved for the likes of Kanye West à la his 2010 Video Music Awards performance outfit. HOWEVER, over the course of 24 hours, not one but TWO lovely ladies tried their hands at the tricky look. Rihanna wore a red suit last night while out and about in London and Blake Lively, too, appeared in one on Good Morning America. The outfits are rooted in similarities, but subtle details differentiate the looks. We want to know, though: who do you think wore it better?
Rihanna stepped out of her London hotel ready to paint the town red *ba dum TSH* in this Acne suit set with bubble gum pink satin accents on the peak lapel and tuxedo stripes. Underneath, Ri wore a flirty printed bustier to un-fuss the harsh tailoring, and on her feet, the Barbados beauty sported a pair of Simone Rocha glass heel brogues (the inspiration behind those Jeffrey Campbell floating shoes we had our eyes on before!).
Earlier that same day, Blake Lively channeled the red hot tailored look from her recent Marie Claire cover with this Michael Kors two-piece ensemble. This outfit winks HARD back at Yeezy’s VMA look, what with the black scoop-neck undershirt, but Lively skips the layered gold chains, opting instead for delicate black hoops and a strappy pair of black Christian Louboutin sandals. Who do you guys think won this fashion battle: Rihanna in Acne or Blake in Michael Kors?
