Lupita Nyong’o or Dakota Johnson? Who wore flirty black and white best at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic?


After a seemingly endless winter, the seasons have changed and summer is finally here. Of course that means the celeb set is taking advantage of the warmer weather, pulling out their best warm weather looks to start the season off fashionably right.


To kick off the summer season, the seventh annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic took place in Jersey City and a few of Hollywood’s best and brightest were on hand to strut their stylish stuff.

Newly announced Star Wars: Episode VII cast addition Lupita Nyong’o was there, attending the event on the arm of her cutie patootie brother Peter (recall, he nearly stole the show during that epic Academy Awards selfie moment).

She was decked out in a black and white, laser cut, grid patterned cotton dress ($3,224) from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection.

It was the perfect dress for the occasion, and Lupita and her style team upped the fashion factor with a Janessa Leone hat, oversized sunglasses, jewels from Dannijo, and Christian Louboutin ‘Cataclou’ wedge sandals ($695).


Also taking in the sights at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event, also wearing a black and white fit-and-flare outfit, and also rocking a hat, was Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson.

Dakota wore an ‘Avalon’ diamond print corset top ($159) and matching ‘Amelia’ diamond print flared skirt ($238), both from the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection.

As for her accessories, Dakota added a straw hat and completed her look with a pair of Tabitha Simmons ‘Heart’ bi-color flats ($945).

Where Lupita’s look was chic and polished, Dakota’s had a hint of fun and playfulness.

Two extremely similar looks, but styling choices and the attitude each woman brings to her outfit are subtle changes that lead to different fashion outcomes.

But the question remains, who wore their black and white look best? Are you a fan of Lupita’s timeless style, or Dakota’s quirky flair?

    I think each lady ‘fits’ her looks. I can’t decide which wore it best. I prefer Lupita’s shoes and Dakota’s hat. I like the dresses better on the models.

    Lupita should have worn a different belt and Dakota should have worn a cami or tub top, or something underneath (I understand not wanting to show skin the event) so the the drawstrings wouldn’t be floppy.

      I hadn’t even noticed the fit on Dakota’s top. Maybe she should’ve gone down a size so that it would fit like it did on the runway.
