Rihanna in Alexander Wang, Brooklyn Decker in Stella McCartney: The Battle of The Battleship Babes Begins!

29 March 2012

Ahoy there! The Battleship promo tour has officially set sail (ok, ok, more likely private jetted its way over!) and yesterday it landed on the shores of London town bringing with it gorgeous young stars, Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker. The film might be all about the fight between the navy and some pesky aliens intent on conquering Earth (eek!) but here at Grazia Daily we're every bit as hooked by the battle of the red carpet. We're sure RiRi and Brooklyn are the best of buds but we can't resist the opportunity for a bit of style-off! We readied our fashion telescopes for a good squiz at the style of two very different fashionistas.

Posing for a photocall atop the Corinthia Hotel yesterday it was a tough call as to who took the lead. Firing the first shot in this sartorial sortie, Rihanna! We loved her Alexander Wang dress (nabbed from his Pre Fall 2012 collection), the appropriately military shade of green suited her down to the ground, the swathes of material on the skirt softened it slightly but the cut-away top ensured it paid homage to the singer's sharp style.

Brooklyn dressed her perfect pins in the final look from Stella McCartney's Spring Summer 2012 collection (oh, to have her contacts list!). The cutaway detail kept the pretty pattern from getting too cute and we couldn't help but fall head over heels *teehee* for Brooklyn's strappy shoes (we're suckers for a fabulous bit of footwear). Rihanna held her own in the footwear stakes with her Christian Louboutin Pigalle pumps but the claws [see our pic gallery for a close up]? Fit for fighting off aliens they may be but we were anxious lest she snag her frock (the horror)! On current evidence however we've decided to call this round a draw!

But who will take round two? Sartorially speaking, these two girls are hardly two peas in a pod. RiRi's usual uniform is edgy street style for day (she took time out to woo us locals with her Boy London style spree, smart move RiRi!) and uber-sexy for the red carpet (accessorised with her chameleon-like follicles which were a glam blonde for the photocall) whilst Brooklyn favours an all-American vibe made up of pretty frocks, classic colour blocks and a pinch of preppy. What to expect next?!

We don't doubt that down in the cargo hold the girls have suitcases stuffed with even more fashion treasures for the forthcoming tour but the big question is, whose style would you want to steal?!

Take a look at our gallery above and let us know whose outfit you'd put up a fight for!
