Seo In Young wears Alaïa, head to toe


When I first saw Seo In Young (서인영) on the Red Carpet of Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), immediately I told myself that I've seen that dress before just that I can't remember where I saw it or who designed the dress. This morning, Hanh of Life-In-Travel (Amazing woman with great style + mother of 2 !!) updated her blog with the exact dress Seo In Young was wearing! It got me really excited to get it posted!

While searching for a picture of the dress (but to no avail.), Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole was also seen in the dress! Which is probably why I find it so familiar since I'm a huge fan of Victoria Beckham and have been following her style.

Victoria Beckham was first seen wearing that dress which was from Azzedine Alaïa's Spring 2009 Collection on the 18th of April while shopping at The Grove. Beckham paired it with her usual Birkin, Louboutin Boots and a cardigan also from Alaïa (not in picture).

Cheryl Cole was seen wearing the dress on the 14th of September while leaving the Ivy Club. Cole paired the dress with Louis Vuitton Can-Can Heels with a leather jacket on hand. She left the zip opened from chest-up unlike Victoria Beckham and Seo In Young.

Seo In Young (서인영) wore the dress to Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) which was held last week on the 21st of November. She paired them with Alaïa Leopard Waist Belt and Alaïa Leather Lace-up Boots (about US$ 1.6K).


Seems like Seo In Young worn the belt opposite instead. But either way, it still looks great. She wore the Leopard Print version instead.


Alaïa's Leather Lace-up Boots which is also available in Suede material.


Hanh of Life-In-Travel in Alaïa's dress! She was playing dress-up imitating the style of Audrey Hepburn which I must say she looked amazing!


So finally, the big question. Who wore it better?

My pick is Victoria Beckham, not because I am a huge fan of her. But I love that she kept the look simple just like Cheryl Cole. But I hate those Louis Vuitton Can-Can heels, and I would not pair them with a leather jacket (like what CC did). Hanh comes in next!!.. totally love the look! But it's a little over the top with those gloves. Love that she paired it with YSL Tribute Two pumps instead of those Louboutins/LV (much prefer pumps!).

Lastly, Seo In Young.
1. Dislike the belt in Leopard print. It'll be better if she chose the two black belts above.
But best without the belt. The silhouette of the dress is amazing already!

2. With Seo In Young's height, she should wear a pump like Hanh so that she doesn't look short. Best with nude-pumps which enlogates the legs to look longer. (I thought Seo In Young couldn't do without her YSL Tribute Two which she wore on many occasions?)

  1. Hanh of Life-in-Travel, looks far more elegant, and has a very classical look to her. I think her look it very beautiful. I'd say her for first place, then Victoria Beckham, because she definitely owns the look.

    I cannot decide between Seo or Cheryl, because Cheryl has taken the zip down to be more revealling, and I just count that as slutty, because all the other women wearing the dress have the zip up, but then, with Seo, she has put the belt with it, and those boots, which I don't think collaberate very well. Hmmm.

    No, I don't really like those can-can shoes either. Puh.
