Yay, Nay, or Eh: Posh or Potter?


Of the bevy of paparazzi darlings—Mary-Kate Olsen, Freida Pinto, Alexa Chung—who turned up at Burberry to close out London fashion week on a high note, few drew the flashbulbs like Victoria Beckham and Emma Watson. The two Brits worked radically different frocks. Posh was prim and ladylike in a black Spring 2010 look from her eponymous collection, while Watson looked every inch the fun-loving college frosh in a shimmery custom Burberry Prorsum minidress. We’re partial to the Harry Potter star’s attire. Not only did she shine (literally), but the festive outfit likely looked just right as the metallic confetti poured from the rafters at the close of the show. What do you think? Is it better to play it cool à la Vicky B., or is Hermione’s sparkle an ideal front-row look?

    emma.. don’t like posh’s style. too harsh and angular. and smile posh smile. emma’s together. enough lines , enough flair and still ladylike.

    First of all their is a age difference between those two of almost 14 years? Just as you said Emma W. looks like a fun loving college (frosh) I like the word student better. About Victoria B. she’s at an age she has to proof that she has style or at least know how to dress herself properly for whatever event. In the past months she didn’t but okay now she shows up with a dress of her own line? I prefere the youth and innocent of the dress Emma Watson is wearing, VB disappointed me to much. When I see her it didn’t sparkle at all whatever dress or miniskirt etc she wears. Arrivederci

    Emma. Her dress was sparkling, youthful and interesting. Her shoes complimented it well. Posh’s dress was boring. She wears the same thing over and over.

    Emma Watson’s dress, well where do I start, it’s young fresh and ridiculously sparkly! what’s not to love about what she is wearing?
    Victoria Backham however…a little boring, yes it kicks out in the right place, but it’s safe, and in fashion you don’t have to be safe, there are no rules. I am in love with the Burberry dress…a bit too much!

    Emma by a long shot, she looks like someone who is enjoying herself.
