Who Wore Valentino Better?

Who Wore It Better?

Valentino Pre-Fall 2012 Jumpsuit

Continuing in the spirit of Valentino this week, this fashion face-off features a crimson red jumpsuit from the label's Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Spotted on several different celebrities and in magazine editorials, this ultra sexy jumpsuit isn't the easiest look to pull off. Lets weigh the options and decide on who did it justice.

*Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wigg was the first to don the scarlet suit with folded corsage detail, in early February this year. The comedienne went all red with Sergio Rossi ChiChi pumps and carried a metallic Kotur box clutch.
*Next in line, we see Jennifer Williams (of the Basketball Wives TV series) wear the same strapless suit in May 2012. The reality actress accessorized with a multi-strand Chanel pearl necklace and cream strappy heels by Christian Louboutin. The jumpsuit seems a size too big.
*Jada Pinkett Smith stepped out in June wearing the altered, cropped version of the Valentino jumpsuit, giving it an entirely different appeal. She paired her sassy shorts set with black ankle strap sandals by Jimmy Choo.
*For Vanity Fair's July 2012 issue, Elvis' granddaughter Riley Keough was given retro styling in the fiery red suit, along with matching studded 'Pigalle' pumps by Christian Louboutin
*Finally, we see newcomer Rebecca Dayan take the jumpsuit out for a spin just last week on 1st August. The French actress kept her look slick and edgy with studded T-strap pumps and a studded leather clutch bag, both by Valentino.

The jumpsuit as it was presented in Valentino's Pre-Fall 2012 collection, 
worn by Polish model Zuzanna Bijoch.

Who Wore It Better? I preferred the styling on Riley Keough in Vanity Fair Magazine, those spiked Pigalle pumps gave it that extra oomph. But credit to Jada Pinkett Smith, at 40 for bravely pulling off that shortened version. What are your thoughts?
