Before the madness of Awards Season started, Jennifer Lawrence got in some practice on the red carpet by donning this pretty, romantic Proenza Schouler strapless dress to the National Board of Review Gala back in January.

A lot of you commented that you found Jennifer’s look veering on the boring side, since she added very little to her outfit and kept everything in neutral shades. I also found it to be a little too mature for the young star, especially with the dress sitting at knee’s length.

Nicky Hilton attended the 2011 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards wearing the same dress.

She seemed to follow in Jennifer’s footsteps by keeping things simple, opting for a diamond ring as her only accessory along with a nude pair of Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps.

I’m slightly torn on this one. I do like how Jennifer looks girly with her soft, tousled hair, delicate jewelry and dainty strappy shoes but agree that she needed to add a little something extra to really make her outfit pop.

Minus the sunburn, I think Nicky look is more modern, plus I prefer her shorter version of the dress.

Nicky wins for me but only by a hair’s breadth.

Jennifer and Nicky’s dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.
