The ladies in this WWIB (Who Wore It Best) post aren’t household names, but they’re the ones we first spotted wearing the Sass & Bide ‘Pick ‘N’ Mix’ strapless dress we’ve been eyeing at Shopbop for weeks.

Elegant Arrival: Sam Worthington and Crystal Humphries

First up is Sam Worthington’s girlfriend Crystal Humphries, whom he took to the Los Angeles premiere of his latest movie ‘Man on A Ledge.’

Crystal contrasted the somber colors on Sams’s outfit with the multicolored and multi-patterned Sass & Bide dress, which she paired with pastel yellow stud earrings, fuchsia pink almond toe pumps, newly washed hair, and barely there makeup:

Sam Worthington married Lara Bingle on December 28, 2014. Before his marriage, Worthington had several notable relationships.

He was involved with Sophie Monk in 2013, Crystal Humphries from 2011 to 2012, Natalie Mark from 2008 to 2011, and Maeve Dermody from 2004 to 2007.

Alesha Dixon’s Bold Winter Choice

We then spotted the Sass & Bide dress on Britain’s Got Talent’s newest judge, Alesha Dixon. Ignoring the wintry temperatures, the singer/dancer bravely squeezed herself into the strapless mini dress.

She teamed her dress with a curly hairdo and pastel-colored eyeshadow, lipstick, and nail polish. The Christian Louboutin ‘Maggie’ platform pumps on her feet, completing her look.

The Versatile Sass & Bide ‘Pick ‘N’ Mix’ Dress

With its daring style, height-cutting embroidered belt pattern, and hip-widening peplum, the Sass & Bide ‘Pick ‘N’ Mix’ strapless dress is one dress that’s difficult to look good in. I prefer Crystal Humphries’ fun accessories, but Alesha Dixon has better hair and makeup. But the dress itself doesn’t fit amazingly on either of them, so I’m still torn over this decision.

What about you? Who do you think wore her Sass & Bide dress better, Crystal Humphries or Alesha Dixon?

The models modeling this same Sass & Bide dress aren’t faring very well either. Only the middle model looked great, while the other two had to cover their waists or turn to their sides.

The woven linen fabrication of this dress, which tends to wrinkle and bunch up, isn’t helping this dress’s cause. Perhaps something with a bit of stretch would be better? This is one of those dresses that looks deceptively stunning on the hanger but is quite hard to pull off.
