It’s easy to arrive at the conclusion that only the most steadfast fashion mavens can pull off wearing fringe from thigh to neck. I’m talking about people like Internet-breaker Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevingne’s sister, Poppy Delevingne.

While they live on different planets in terms of style, the two frequently cross paths during fashion weeks. So it was a surprise when they both favored the same fringed Balmain dress earlier this month.

1. Kim Kardashian in Tights and Lace-Up Boots (Full Story)

Kanye West’s wife brought her fierce game on when she showed up at Paris Fashion Week with brand new platinum locks on, wearing a fringed Balmain dress from the brand’s Pre-Fall collection and a pair of Alaia cutout suede boots.

2. Poppy Delevingne Opted for the Blue Version

The socialite preferred the metallic blue version and styled it up with sleek hair and a pair of thigh-high boots.

We favor Poppy’s styling more because she stayed true to the majorette-esque elements of the outfit. Kim’s new blonde hair color did not help one bit!

The dress isn’t easy to pull off, is it? But who do you think did more justice to it? Kim or Poppy?
