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?

LL could look very nice with a bra on. Why she ever messed with her pretty red hair is beyond me. The blonde hair no matter what shade washes her out and makes her look cheap.
I vote Pippa because she just looks classier.

Lindsay looks like an drunk! At least Pippa looked like she was at a wedding.

AL on

The color looks good on Lindsay but it’s ill fitting. It’s hung too low make it look like she’s about to spill out any moment. Reminds me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Oscar gown.

Linds on

Isn’t Lindsay Lohan complaining that she is broke?

Kelli on

Carol, if you read the article it says the bride requested guests to wear black or white…otherwise yes, it would be tacky.

Kelsi on

Who wears white to a wedding? Who invites Lindsay Lohan to a wedding? And I like Pippa better!

Jeanine on

@ Carol… was request by Kim that the whole wedding be black and white.

sam on

Pippa looks better, the dress doesn’t fit Lindsay right.

Fran on

To be truthful, i really don’t care about Lindsay or Pippa and which one of them has more class, but i must say that the dress looks better on Pippa than on Lindsay. That style of dress doesn’t flatter Lindsay at all and and makes her look wwwaaayyy older than her real age.

Jessica on

You can literally see Lohan’s nipples through her dress… Pippa is def a winner.
