Actresses Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Hee Sun have been spotted wearing the same dress from the Christian Dior Haute Couture collection.
First introduced to the wider celebrity world in January at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, fabulous Marion Cotillard dazzled the red carpet wearing this strapless silk charmeuse high-low gown. She immediately made it to many “best-dressed” lists, receiving praise worldwide.
Due to the silk material and a high empire-waist, the dress is described to be a nod toward more traditional Asian wear. The ribbon tied around the waist and the sheer fullness of the dress invokes the feel of a traditional Korean hanbok for women.
Jun Ji Hyun, having been personally invited by Dior’s creative director Raf Simons, wore the gown at July’s Christian Dior 2013 F/W Haute Couture show in Paris. She matched it with Dior’s Pre-Fall white knit top. Fans have compared her to a living doll.
Kim Hee Sun made a tribute to both traditional and modern sensibilities as she posed against a background of an old, traditional Korean house for the fashion magazine “Cosmopolitan.” The dress was slightly crumpled to show her bare leg, juxtaposing the elegant atmosphere with a chic heel.
Who do you think wore it better?
