While the rumor mill is abuzz with the possibility of Kate Upton covering the first issue of Carine Roitfeld's forthcoming glossy CR Fashion Book, the swimsuit model has been busy building her fashion cred on her own.
Kate tweeted a photo of herself in an avant-garde Versace dress from the label's spring 2012 collection at GQ's party in Milan last week. The studded mini was somewhat of a departure for the bombshell who seems to be transitioning out of her bikinis and into designer frocks. (Look no further than Kate's decidedly fashion-y spread in this month's Vogue for proof.)
The dress was so au courant that resident fashion street style queen Anna Dello Russo wore the very same one yesterday to the Atelier Versace show in Paris. We're kind of freaking out that the Vogue Nippon editor would dare to follow any major player, let alone Kate Upton, in such a statement-making piece. Anna blinged out her look with more accessories, of course, but we can't help but wonder if she consciously shared the street style spotlight with Ms. Upton.
So which fashion scene regular got it right: Kate Upton's low-key version or Anna Dello Russo's accessorized ensemble? Check out the photos below and tell us what you think.
See more Kate Upton!
