A Balmain Double Take

The woman on the left is Anna Dello Russo, the fashion director of Vogue Nippon. She is rocking the same fabulous Balmain number as Mary-Kate Olsen. Who do you prefer? Personally I favor Anna's dark interpretation. Her sleek, salt-n-pepper hair emphasize the strong-shouldered silhouette while lengthening her neck. Her sheer black hose melt perfectly into her booties. While Mary-Kate did everthing she could to extend her legs, using nude pumps, she still comes up short. In my opinion, she is too short to carry off such a strong silhouette. Brava for her passionate attempt, as I understand physical limitations can be frustrating while exploring stylistic boundaries.
