It’s not a secret celebs like to wear trendy, chic, and elegant dresses created by the most prominent designers. Yet it is not often that we get to see them grab a dress right from the runway. One minute a slim model is gracing the catwalk wrapped in dreamy waves of silk and chiffon, and next you see a gorgeous voluptuous celebrity rock the same dress on Red Carpet. The difference is striking and it is often hard to tell who wore the dress best. That’s why it is so interesting to see celebs and models rock the same garment side by side. Here are 13 gorgeous dresses celebs took right off the catwalk.
Kim Kardashian – Thierry Mugler
I’ve got to say that Kim is a real pro when it comes to wearing body-hugging dresses. They just look so good on her figure! Same goes for this flirty dress that was definitely meant for a curvier type of woman.
Rihanna – Marques Almeida
You’ve got to give it to Riri – she could pull off of wearing a bathroom curtain if she wanted to or, in this case, a purple furry coat. I mean, who in her right mind would even try wearing it? Rihanna would and she looks pretty darn stylish doing so. The lipstick and the shoes just make this look so much better.
Rihanna – Christian Dior
Rihanna can go from a bad girl to an elegant princess in a blink of an eye. The model does look gentler wearing the same outfit as RiRi tends to look a bit edgy no matter what she wears. Her personality is like that!
Jennifer Lawrence – Christian Dior
Jennifer Lawrence is looking glam as ever wearing a sleek Christian Dior gown and red colour is perfect for the Red Carpet (duh). I must admit the dress looks livelier on her than it does on the runway model. Maybe it’s all about the smile?
Jennifer Lawrence – Christian Dior
Jennifer definitely knows a thing or two about style and so does Christian Dior! True, this dress made Jennifer fall (quite gracefully if I might add) during her receiving the Oscar, but otherwise it’s a truly outstanding garment. Looks kind of bland on the model, especially with that ridiculous head piece.
Rihanna – Giambattista Valli
This bold flowy dress is a statement piece and you’ve got to show some personality if you put this on. The model is lost behind the power of this dress, yet when Rihanna wears it you can feel the empowerment it gives her.
Salma Hayek – Gucci
You may or may not like the style of the dress, but you’ve got to give it to lady Salma here wearing a seemingly see-through dress like it’s the most casual attire. The black one definitely looks more stylish, especially paired with classy red lipstick.
Penelope Cruz – Ralph & Russo
This is one of those cases when a dress looks better in real life than it does on the runway. Seriously, though, it’s a lovely fashion piece that calls for a special occasion. It should add more volume to the figure of the woman wearing it, but somehow Penelope still looks fit and gorgeous even with some extra layers on her hips.
Rita Ora – Marc Jacobs
If you want a bizarre, yet stylish outfit – Marc Jacobs is your guy. Rita Ora is definitely a fan of all things bright and unusual, so her choice of dress is pretty expected (although it looks like nothing we’ve seen before, okay). Frankly speaking, the model looks like she ran away from a circus show, while Rita Ora pulls off this outfit with grace and elegance, turning this weird look into an edgy outfit.
Lucy Liu – Alexander Vauthier
So many things could go wrong with a barrel-like skirt like that, yet Lucy Liu looks beyond cute wearing this outfit. It looks girly, flirty, and somehow makes her look younger. The skirt is also longer in her variation of the dress, which looks more sophisticated than the runway look.
Katy Perry – Balmain
A dress looking like a pink mop? Yes, please! Katy Perry is one of the few celebrities who could wear a ridiculous thing like this and actually look amazing. It’s a talent as big as her singing prowess!
Jennifer Lopez – Ralph & Russo
A body-hugging dress needs at least some curves to look good. That’s why some dresses look much more stunning when they are off the runway, worn by some less skinny celebrity who feels confident in her own body. Jennifer Lopez looks smart and sleek in this ethnic-themed gown.
