Who do YOU think wore this Balmain get-up better? VOTE!

First Nicole Richie, now Gwen Stefani! It looks like RiRi serves as major inspiration to so many stylish stars. On June 4, Gwen attended the Bling Ring premiere, where the 43-year-old was wearing the same Balmain top and similar pants that we first saw on Rihanna back in December 2012 when she took to the stage for a performance in Germany. It looks like both of these singers have an affinity for the crop top trend — but who do YOU think really rocked the look?

Rihanna’s Look:

Rihanna first wore the get-up months ago, but we’re not forgetting about the fact that the outfit was originally debuted by Balmain for the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The songstress wasted no time getting her hands on it for an upcoming performance. When worn, she mimicked the look straight off the runway, however, she chose her own vintage Chanel belt to pair with the high-waisted pant. It wasn’t quite like the tight numbers we usually see on RiRi, but if anyone can pull off a new look it’s her!

Gwen Stefani’s Look:

Gwen Stefani repeated the outfit on June 4 when she stepped out for the Bling Ring premiere. Although she strayed a bit, opting for a different pant, it still was SO similar to RiRi’s performance get-up.

We voted Stefani’s outfit a fashion flop because we didn’t think it did anything for her amazing body, and we still feel the same about Rihanna. What do YOU think? Can Rihanna pull off the retro trend better than Gwen?
