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?

By far Pippa looked way better. Lindsay looked like she was going to fall out of her dress, ick.

Lindsay looks like she is 50 years old! Pippa just looks classy.

I thought Lindsay was broke? She can’t afford councilling but she can afford a new dress for a wedding? She didn’t have something in her closet she could’ve worn? Sheesh! What a maroon!

For you people who says who wears white to a wedding read the story. The bride asked people to wear white or black.

I like the white version of the dress better, but that’s just a color preference. I feel like Lindsay knew she would get attention for wearing the same dress as Pippa so she did it on purpose, and while its a nice dress, it does not look nice on her at all. No one should show that much cleavage at a wedding. She could have pulled the dress up or had it altered to fit properly. The orange tan makes her look like an oompa loompa and her yellow/white hair doesn’t look right either. I liked Lindsay back when she was still a child actor, when she was actually pretty in her teens until she started with all of her troubles. Now she looks like a poster child for what NOT to wear or do. I don’t know how she got invited to their wedding anyway, I don’t know who has much interest in her anymore after the train wreck she’s been on the last couple years. I do love how they noted in the article that “Temperley did NOT loan her the dress” lol and that she must have bought it, but that they were “honored” to create the dress for Pippa who is classy! They obviously don’t want to be associated with Lindsay!!

That doesn’t even LOOK like Lindsey Lohan..Just my opinion. LOL

Pippa looked 1000000000 times better in that dress than the person in the other photo.

@Carol. Kim requested that the guests wear white or black to the wedding, no other colors at all. Pippa looks better
