White Dress Showdown: Cornish vs. Strahovski

Posted on June 29, 2012

We couldn’t decide which one of these looks we wanted to cover, because two white dress posts in one day makes the Stoneys antsy. Since the last showdown kept you all happily occupied, and because you all love to pit celebrities against each other in to-the-death cagematches, we figured we’d cover them both.

Simple, crisply tailored, and pretty, wouldn’t you say? It’s a great little dress. We’re always a little iffy about black shoes with a white dress and come down on the side that says they should be somewhat elegant and unobtrusive in shape, since they already have a lot of visual weight by virtue of being black shoes paired with a white dress. That means no bear traps or platforms. These aren’t the greatest shoes in the world but we don’t particularly mind. We think she probably should have worn her hair up or back, though.

We saw this dress first and said, “Oh, she looks pretty. We’ll feature it tomorrow.” Then we saw the following:

And girl knocked it OUT OF THE PARK. She looks amazing. The dress fits her beautifully and does fantastic things for her body. The hair and makeup are impeccable and the earrings are gorgeous. Best of all, she’s positively glowing with “I look fucking amazing” euphoria. That’s always the best.

Sorry, Abbie. You look really pretty and chic, but Yvonne takes this one by a mile.
