Who wore it better: Liz or Gaga

Gaga vs Liz Hurley

Gaga vs Liz Hurley

Is this even a contest? We admit it is not. The dress (once and forever known simply as That Dress) fits Liz better across the body, it’s the right length for her, her hair colour works better with it , the accessories pick up the gold and echo the shapes of the pins, and she has more sense than to wear a revealing drop dead dress with shoes that look like she mugged a fetish Clydesdale for them.

Also: face the same colour as body. These things matter when there’s that much skin on show.

Liz Hurley is fierce. Lady Gaga is forced.

    Is that a recent photo of Gaga? Cuz, you know, she turned into a fat cow.

    That was taken I believe a week ago, a week or two after the very unflattering appearance with the fishnets. As I pointed out at the time, it was the fit that was the problem there, not the fat. The whole body image thing was as contrived as every other aspect of Gagadom. She’s never been fat. But she wanted to jump aboard the Body Acceptance bandwagon and couldn’t do it unless she was perceived as fat, so on went the ill-fitting bikini and fishnets and out came the paparazzi flashes.
