Celebrity Style Smackdown. Who Wore It Best?

April 9, 2009 • Celebrity Style

It's time once again to grab a seat ringside…


Eva Longoria Parker vs. Jessica Stroup in Badgley Mischka

Winner: Jessica Stroup. This is a surprise since Eva is the designing duo's muse, but Jessica pulls the dress off better. For one, the hem line is more flattering. With a skirt this flouncy, a little knee goes a long way to balance out the 'pouf.' We also like her choice in shoes better. Eva's sandals don't really compliment the dress.


Isla Fisher vs. Kim Kardashian in Lela Rose

Winner: Isla Fisher. When wearing such a ruffled neckline, one is better served with their long hair pulled back, otherwise it just adds volume to your top half and let's face it…Kim doesn't need that. She also needs to have her bangs trimmed. Additionally, a grand necklace is overkill with the neckline.


Kelly Ripa vs. Debi Mazar in Victoria Beckham

Winner: I have to go with Kelly even though they are both wearing the dress at the same length and with the same shoes. Debbie loses points for the gloved overkill and having her hair pulled back. The color of the dress is more flattering on Kelley and her hair worn lose looks softer. On a side note…do you think any of these actresses actually pay to wear a Victoria Beckham dress…or do you assume they are freebies like I do?


Jennifer Lopez vs. Padma Lakshmi in Dolce & Gabbana

Winner: JLo wins by knock-out. Padma's choice of accessories are all wrong for this dress. The necklaces are too long for one and the white earrings are too much as are the white shoes. Don't mess with Jenny From the Block! Padma, take this a lesson in accessorizing.

Shenae Grimes vs. Mischa Barton in Alberta Ferretti

Winner: Mischa Barton. The dress is too big on Shenae and should have been taken in (and up a few inches) by a tailor. She also lost points for matchy-matchy silver sandals.


Lindsay Price vs. Paris Hilton in Nicole Miller

Winner: Lindsay Price. Seriously, will Paris be sporting opaque tights into summer? She hardly seems without them these days. Her choice of legwear is too heavy for this evening dress. Even though I like the color better on Paris, Lindsay wins for her 'evening' legs and her choice of the season's hottest color shoes…nude.
