We've got two gorgeous ladies going toe to toe in this round of 'Who Wore It Better': little black dress edition!
This little black dress is a classic form-fitting one piece that flares out at the bottom. IU wore it on the red carpet last October at the '2015 Korea Pop Culture and Arts Awards,' and Kim Ji Won wore it to a 'DOTS' press conference back in February.
Both stars opted for elegant and simple, their outfits sparse of any bold accessories. If you look very closely, you can see that IU and Kim Ji Won are wearing thin necklaces that are barely visible to the naked eye. IU also added a pair diamond earrings, making her outfit appear a bit more adorned than Kim Ji Won's. The most notable differences in the outfits are the stars' shoes, which stand out more distinctly than their accessories. IU added a nice contrast to the overall black scheme with nude pumps while Kim Ji Won went all black with a strapped pair of heels.
IU and Kim Ji Won are equally elegant and ladylike in the little black dress...but, I prefer IU's styling over Kim Ji Won's. In Kim Ji Won's case, the little black dress didn't really speak for itself. Her entire look is a bit too plain--nothing really stands out. Plus I'm not sure if either star had the dress tailored, but it fits better on IU's body. I also like IU's minor yet distinct touches to the outfit, especially her earrings and her red lipstick which give her a sophisticated aura.
So all in all, I vote IU! How about you? Which little black dress look do you prefer?
