Who Wore Temperley Better: Pippa or Lindsay?

It looks like even Lindsay Lohan has caught the Pippa bug!

For Kim Kardashian’s star-studded nuptials on Saturday, the actress donned a white version of the glamorous green Temperley gown Pippa Middleton wore to her sister’s royal wedding; Temperley’s public relations team says they didn’t lend Lohan the gown, but believe she purchased it from their Los Angeles store for the Saturday wedding in Montecito, Calif.

And while conventional wedding wisdom says that a guest should never wear white, the hue was actually at the bride’s behest; she requested that the 450 guests “please wear black or white.”

The gown, a floor-length satin dress with a crystal brooch, was first created for the Duchess of Cambridge’s little sis. “I was honored that Ms. Pippa Middleton asked me to design her dress for the Royal Wedding evening reception,” the British designer said at the time. “She loved the green color, which looks great on her skin tone. The dress was designed especially for her with a fantastic open back and a full skirt for dancing in.”

While Middleton paired the show-stopper with a sparkling clutch and Aruna Seth heels, Lohan stuck with the white motif, adding a fringed updo plus jewels by Philip Press, Elodie K. and Erica Courtney to complete the look. Tell us: Who do you think looks better in Temperley?

I think the man standing behind Ms. Middleton would agree that she looks better. Talk about obvious. Put your eyes back in your socket.

I like both dresses equally well but I prefer Pippas simply because she looks vibrant and radiant in the gown. She wears the gown not the other way around so to speak. Lindsay looks amazing compared to past pics but the bleached hair and the white of the gown just really make her look washed out. As for Kims choice of white or black to the wedding.. I have seen alot of weddings where the guests and even the bridesmaids wore black or white. It was beautiful but the most famous was Princess Catherines wedding where Pippa wore white as well.. Tradition and glam.. How divine!

she probably chose white over black because it’s much easier for cocaine dropping from her nostrils to blend in!

Hands down Pippa. Lohan looks like she spent $1.29.She can’t war clothes. She looks old and spent.

Lindsay should go back to her roots, the red hair long curly locks was pretty and not many in the stars have that. Then lay off the tan and have the complexion she was given at birth. Then change the dress to a emerald green even thou white was a request. She could change her looks for her next appearance.

You can definitely tell the difference between someone who works out and takes care of herself versus someone who has not done so in a long time…go Pippa!

Same dress – one looks lovely and classy (Pippa) and one looks cheap and phony (Lohan). Amazing!

She didn’t actually wear white to the wedding. She just got covered in coke and jizz.
