Elle Macpherson wears VB’s dress, but who wore it best?

12 August 2009


When Victoria Beckham came over all Fashion Editor on us a few weeks ago as she directed the campaign shoot for her latest collection in London, it seems like we weren't the only ones watching. Because the £2,000 grey Carmontelle dress that she wore while swinging from the houses of Westbourne Grove has now been snapped up by supermodel Elle Macpherson. On location in New York's Soho to film scenes for upcoming series The Beautiful Life, Elle plays a fierce model agent in the drama starring Mischa Barton, and it's not the first time she's chosen a VB creation for the role. Just a few months ago, Elle was rocking a fitted black dress from the same collection to a promotional event for the series, which leaves us wondering about the inspiration for her character somewhat. After all, we know she's taking her acting gig pretty seriously: "This perspective that the fashion industry is sort of frivolous or fly-by-night or tedious or momentary is actually really not a fair perspective on the industry...we as a team are working very hard to make sure that this program is authentic - in its human relations, in its portrayal of the industry, in the growth and the arc of people within this industry. It is not a manufactured, dramatized version - and we have all had enough experience to keep this real." Hmmm, well we reckon both ladies look fab - what do you think? [NY Daily News]
