This or That Edition: BCBG

For this edition of This or That, we have Face Africa’s Saran Kaba Jones and actress Bonnie Bentley in a colorblock red, grey, yellow and red BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2011 printed maxi pleated dress. The geometric prints were inspired by Guy Bourdin’s photography. The maxi look is the it look to wear as our previous This or That Edition showcase! Hmmm…it seems Alice + Olivia also love this idea too!

Saran first wore this look with a oversize snakeskin clutch to present at Arise Made in Africa SS 2012 show during New York Fashion Week. Renowned stylist and Co-Founder of Global Fashion Show Rosemary Kokuhilwa (of popular African fashion blog Fashion Junkii) captured two snapshots of Saran on the red carpet.

Bonnie attended last night’s 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy’s in the same look which she accessorized with a black clutch.

Both ladies stuck with the runway’s belt but added their personal touches via accessories. You have to admire that slit! It’s completely unexpected, isn’t it? BCBG provided effortless style for a reasonable price (re: $458) only at This look was lifted from BCBG Max Azria’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection. There’s something about that yellow and red combo…

This or That: Saran vs. Bonnie in BCBG!

This Or That examines style trends on and off the red carpet. Sometimes it’s a fashion face-off or two looks that’s quite similar.
