On our recent trip to London, we decided to bring one of our franchise episodes across the pond and focus on a few of our favorite Brits. In this edition of "Who Wore it Best," we spotted three sets of stars all in leather pieces: pants, dress, and jacket. We're weighing in on who got the look right and where to get a budget-friendly version of the victor's ensemble.
Both Hollywood celebrities and the high fashion elite are crazy for French designer Isabel Marant right now. Sexy Brit Gemma Arterton (she was Jake Gyllenhaal's princess in "Prince of Persia") and a pregnant Posh wore the same pair of cropped leather pants by Marant. Gemma styled hers with a navy Balmain military jacket, but the pants seemed big for her. Posh's choice of a slouchy sweater and spiked-heels created the perfect combo of classic and edgy.
Marion Cotillard vs. Daisy Lowe
It's not easy to wear a ruffled leather dress but both Oscar winner Marion Cotillard and model of the moment, Daisy Lowe, took on the challenge. Marion looked over-the-top sexy in Dior's bustier frock accessorized with a simple chain, pointy heels and some very French red lips. Still, we say Daisy wins this one because of her cool streetstyle. Her leopard clutch and ankle boots reinforce the bad girl vibe.
Cheryl Cole vs. Cat Deeley
When the "X Factor" judge and the "So You Think You Can Dance" presenter wore Mulberry's leather jacket they both paired it with gray skinny jeans. Cheryl looked sleek with a black lacy top and lace-up ankle boots, but we prefer the softer, girly vibe Cat created with a gray T-shirt and tan sandals.
