Fergie and Julianne Hough: LBD + Clutch Style War

Jun 23 2010 • by Sarah

A style star’s worst nightmare is to get photographed in the same outfit as another and get compared to bits.

And that’s exactly what we’ll do today! Just for fun and for our love of clutches, of course.

Our two contenders for today’s entry is R&B star Fergie versus Country Music darling Julianne Hough. Their common denominator is the stunning Camilla & Marc peek-a-boo little black dress. Fergie donned hers at last year’s Nine LA premiere and Julianne worked hers at the MTV Movie Awards early this month.

Both slipped on black pumps to compliment their LBD’s and added interesting clutches for a personal spin on their respective outfits. Our interest of course is on their patterned clutches. Julianne was carrying a Jenny Packham beauty while Fergie’s remain to be a mystery.

One thing’s for sure though, both are predominantly black and interestingly patterned. If you are in the market for a clutch with those characteristics, then check out¬†these goodies:

Ed Hardy Tiara Wristlet, $62

Christian Audigier Animale Flap Clutch, $96

L.A.M.B. Signature Newcombe Clutch, $107.40

These are mid-range clutches that are guaranteed to give your LBD’s a stylish lift taking cues from Fergie and Julianne.

Now the verdict on the fashion face-off? I would go for the country singer’s take on the Camilla & Marc dress. I like that she opted to wear her hair down and polish her look with the matte gold and black Jenny Packham clutch and the matte gold bangles. I also favor her classic black pumps over Fergie’s T-strap version which sort of shortened her frame all the more.

Well, that’s my take, what’s yours?
