Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Anna Paquin or Cameron Diaz

Audrina Patridge’s Zuhair Murad dress wasn’t the only re-run of the Teen Choice Awards this weekend. Cameron Diaz’ Alexander McQueen dress was too.

Anna Paquin wore her black Alexander McQueen cheongsam with a mandarin collar, capped sleeves and zip with contrast piping detail, when she made an appearance on the “Late Show With David Letterman” last month.

She styled her hair into a classic updo, and wore Jimmy Choo slingbacks to complete her chic look.

Cameron looked svelte in her super-flattering grey version at the “Teen Choice Awards” which she paired with Pierre Hardy blue heels.

Many of you thought Diaz dressed too old for a teen event. I personally think she was setting a good example to the young actresses she walked the red carpet with – Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva.

In spite of that I much prefer the black version of this dress so Anna wins for me. I also prefer this dress zipped and not left open like Cameron’s dress.

This dress is available to purchase in black from Browns Fashion for £760/€884.34/$1,250.73. The grey version is available from Neiman Marcus for $1,845.

    I don’t really know which one to vote for. It’s a really good example of a dress that is really versatile, with a geisha-vibe in black and zipped for Anna Paquin and a more relaxed fun vibe in grey and unzipped for Cameron. So it’s really a tie for me.

    I can’t choose, they both look awesome. Anna’s looks a bit more Asian with the zipper all the way up, whereas Cameron looks more flirty. Either way, the dress is great on both of them.

    This is one where I wish I could say both b/c they both look amazing in it. I went with Anna’s b/c her’s seemed more appropriate for the Late Show than Cameron’s seemed for the Teen Choice Awards.

    I voted for Cameron Diaz, but it was a very difficult choice. The dress is gorgeous in both black and grey, and although I love it when it’s zipped, like Anna’s, I prefer it when it’s left open, so Cameron wind for me.

    i think the dress looks better when its oriental vibe is downplayed so cammy wins for me. also her legs look super fab!

    i prefer cameron idaz.

    when i first saw anna paquin, i though she was wearing a traditional cheongsam, whereas its alexander mcqueen!

    the zip was meant to be open for a more stylized look.. well, that’s what i think 🙂

    I really love the dress on Anna, the black makes the dress look much more oriental than in grey.

      I very much agree

    I guess I prefer Cameron in it because it fits better and her figure looks better. Anna Paquin’s looks a bit rumpled, and I prefer the grey and it being a little above the knee.
