Who Wore Lanvin Better? Charlize Theron or Jenna Elfman

Before yesterday I hadn’t even heard of Jenna Elfman, so her wearing the same Lanvin Pre-Fall 2009 dress as Charlize Theron to the “CBS, CW And Showtime All-Star Party” has definitely put her on the map, which was probably the intention.

Jenna wore her gold metallic dress with black peep-toes and without the runway belt.

Charlize had worn the dress months earlier to the “The Burning Plain” Paris premiere at the Publicis Champs Elysees with black pumps.

If you look at the necklines you will see that the knotted detail appears on opposite shoulders.

This may explain why there is so much material on front of Jenna’s dress – she’s worn it the dress back to front, or maybe it’s a Bebe knock-off.

I don’t think you need to wonder. Charlize wins this for me.

    Jenna Elfman has been around for a long time. She is an actress who usually appears in comedies – she’s probably best known for a TV show called “Dharma and Greg” and a movie directed by Ed Norton called “Keeping The Faith”.

    Now for the dress – I don’t think it’s a knock-off, but I think it looks too big for her. Maybe she does have it on back-to-front. Either way, a belt would have helped!

      Jenna Elfman is an emmy nominated actress and a golden globe award winner…so although I’m a fan of you FC I’m really not fond of you saying that she wore the dress because she wanted to be on the map…

        I hadn’t heard of her. She is ONLY on my radar – map – because she has worn this dress. That is a fact.

        Lighten up, it’s quite clearly a tongue and cheek comment.

        I don’t live in the US. I’ve never heard of her I’ve never watched “Dharma and Greg” nor “Keeping The Faith”.

          Oh okay…I’m sorry if I offended you…still a fan :)

            You didn’t offend me. I was just confused.

    She’s worn the dress back-to-front, or maybe it is a Bebe knock-off – ha, too funny!

    Um, no contest and no total no-brainer – Charlize. By a mile.

    There is just no contest – Charlize looks fab, Jenna looks silly. This illustrates how different a dress can look on 2 different people.

    Charlize totally rocks this….btw FC have you seen vanity fair’s best dressed list renee zellweger made the hall of fame!

    • Fashion Critic August 5, 2009 at 09:48 #

      Yes I was surprised she made the Hall of Fame, but she does make each piece Carolina Herrera makes for her her own.

    this highlights the need for a stylist!!! a second expert opinion would have really helped jenna…she is better than this but i’m sorry to say it looks like she has a bag on…so of course it has to be charlize for me

  6. robbie August 5, 2009 at 12:35 #

    obviously charlize wins, but i do prefer jennas shoe choice.

  7. Ally August 5, 2009 at 12:56 #

    So strange that Charlize looks like she is wearing an amazing expensive dress and Jenna looks like she is wearing a gold trash bag… Jenna usually looks cuter than this.

    Wow, this must be one of the easiest “Who Wore It Better” polls ever!!! Charlize all the way, of course!

    It is backward! How embarrassing.

    The 3% who voted for Jenna Elfman. Really?

  11. Jackie August 6, 2009 at 06:15 #

    I’ve never put so little thought into the “Who wore it better” polls!

    That’s what the Church of Scientology will do to you (Jenna).
