Who Wore J.Mendel Better? Eva Mendes or Selita Ebanks

Eva Mendes looked radiant when she stepped out for the closing night of the “Middle East International Film”  in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates wearing a white asymmetrical J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2009 gown.

She teamed her dress with diamond hot pink jewellery from Cartier.

Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks wore the same gown to “A Magical Evening” Gala in New York earlier on this month.

This column dress complements both women’s dark features and skin and I always adore white on the red carpet when done well like it has been here.

Although Eva has the impressive Cartier jewels, Selita is completely glowing in J.Mendel and I prefer how her hair is neatly tucked away to show the shoulder detail.

This draws the eye down to the gathering at the edge of the waist which then creates a beautiful fall of material down to the floor. Ten gold stars to Selita as she is the winner here for me.

    I’m not too fond of Eva’s accessories either. The red and white bracelet with that neckace. Ick! Selita is glowing but I think it has a lot to do with the lighting and the way she is positioned, but I agree she owned this look.

      I agree absolutely. By the way, to me it seems quite difficult to wear a white dress best, exept as a nurse or as a bride. Selita has done it!

    Selita definitely. I like her hair, pose (I don’t like Eva’s hand in the pocket), and the contrast between the white and Selita’s skin.

    Selita all the way.
