Wear or Die, celebrity edition: Keyshia Cole v. Piper Perabo

Celebrityfashionpolice

Beige is back, apparently. Over the last few days we’ve seen celebrity after celebrity looking almost nude as they trip out onto the red carpet in the colour that really isn’t much of a colour at all. Now, I like beige. It can look great if worn well, or it can also look… well, it can also look like the outfits worn by Keyshia Cole and Piper Perabo, above. Now, maybe you like these outfits, maybe you don’t. My question to you though, is: if you had to wear one of these outfits, or die, which one would you choose? The "bra over t-shirt" look sported by Keyshia (no, that’s not what she’s really wearing – it just looks like it) or the shapeless sack of Piper’s?

For myself, I think I’d go with Keyshia’s look. There’s an outside chance of being able to pull this one off, and as "quirky" outfits go, I think she’s managing it not too badly. Piper’s sack dress, on the other hand, would make me look like I was drowning in a sea of beige, and that’s never a good look.

Enough about me, though. What about you? Which outfit would you wear… or DIE!

    I would wear Piper’s dress. If it was a bit shorter and had a big belt around the middle, it wouldn’t be too terrible. Keyshia’s look is just not right. No one should wear white *or* beige tights. No one.

    I’m going to have to go with die on this one Alex; and even as a corpse I wouldn’t want to be caught in either one of those getups!

    I’d go with the dress if I was allowed to throw on a big shawl, long gloves and a cloche hat.
    But then again, nothing can shade that… “thing” around the hips.

    I wouldn’t mind the outfit on the right so much – wearing your bra on top of your t-shirt however seems just inacceptable.

    Piper’s dress. Hideous as it is, it won’t elicit hollers of “Hey doll, how much?”

    I wouldn’t wear either one but I would certainly be proud to walk beside and show off Ms. Perabo.

    I wouldn’t wear either but I would be proud to be seen with Piper while she’s wearing that dress (or any other).

    I think I’ll go for the got-drunk-and-forgot-which-clothing-article-is-supposed-to-be-put-on-first ( on the left) look , the second looks like it’s from a diva that’s come from a mental hospital
