Who Wore Armani Privé Better? Celine Dion or Penelope Cruz

Celine Dion took to the red carpet for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards back in February wearing an Armani Privé white organza long-sleeved gown.

The singer kept her accessories to a minimum, choosing to add only a statement diamond necklace.

I love this look on Celine. With her minimal make-up and gorgeous bouncy curls this look is glamorous and Oscar worthy.

Despite this being a Cannes-worthy look, Penelope Cruz actually wore a red version of the same dress to the “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Munich Premiere.

The beautiful actress stunned us all in this look, choosing to pair the dress with matching satin heels, a boxy red clutch and diamond stud earrings.

She wore her hair slicked back in a bun and kept the focus of her makeup on her eyes.

Penelope undoubtedly looks incredible. The colour, fit of the dress and her accessories all combine together to create an unforgettable look.

She managed to win BDOTW, even during Cannes, which is definitely saying something.

Celine looked great but the red version of the dress is so much sexier and dramatic, so Penelope wins for me.

    I think Céline wins
    Her dress is more for her age… her hairstyle looks way better on that dress.
    Her necklace goes perfect too.
    Penelope is not as elegant as Céline. She’s more like amm… sexy.
    So, for me… Céline wins

    I voted for Celine because Penelope always looks great, but this is one time Celine rocks what she’s wearing

    I voted for Celine Dion because she is the best.

    the fabrics are not the same, penelop’s dress is of the same fabric as the runway, but celine’s one is modified (not so shiny). However, the neckline looks much better on celine’s dress, the higher neckline on penelope folds slightly, not fitting right.
    The ideal dress for me would have been penelope’s dress colour with celine’s neckline.

    I chose celine, she is way older than penelope, and has had three kids, I think the fact she is not bursting out of this is a miracle!!!! And not only is she not bursting out, she looks stunning!

    I like the fit on Penelope better. It frams her figured without being fitted. Celine, looks great but it’s a smidgen too tight for my tastes.

    Also, I love the rich, seductive tone of Penelope’s dress paired with her dark hair. The over all effect is sexier.

    Both look amazing, but I give it to Celine for overall look. Her wavy Veronica Lake hair, the fit, the necklace, I actually thought she was THE best dressed at the Oscars this year.

    I think the only reason we love Penelope Cruz’s look so much is because of the color. The fit is not that great and Dion did the hair better.

    I voted for Celine Dion, if her dress was red it would have been perfect, but I prefer her neckline, the jewelry and the hair. Penelope’s hair seems dirty, that’s why I don’t particularly like her here.

    I would never have thought I’d find Celine Dion in the same fashion league with Penelope Cruz, but here I am. I think they both look wonderful in the dress, although they each bring something different to it. I’m with the non-voters. It’s too hard a choice.

    I’m going with Celine because that’s one of her best red carpet looks and more importantly, the wet look of the fabric is much better in white/cream. The red wet look on Penelope just looks gross to me.

  12. Tatiana May 26, 2011 at 16:23 #

    Penelope because of the color. Only because of the color really.

  13. Christina May 26, 2011 at 16:20 #

    I voted for Celine- the cut around the bust line fits her much better than Penelope’s does and I prefere the hair down, P’s hair is doing nothing for me

  14. Vicky May 26, 2011 at 15:57 #

    I won’t vote on this one, probably the first time that’s happened.
    Both look incredible, in their own way and style.
    Love them both!

    Both look great but Penelope wins by a nose. Maybe she just strikes a better pose tho.

  17. mochababe73 May 26, 2011 at 14:58 #

    I love the white on Celine, but the red is very striking. And, I like Penelope’s styling. No jewelry. Hair pulled back.

  18. Gaber May 26, 2011 at 14:46 #

    I saw the title and I burst out laughing, thinking, poor Celine, she can never compete with Penelope.
    And then I saw the pictures and surprisingly, Celine looks really good. Not Penelope-good, but it still is a very strong look.

  19. Jones19 May 26, 2011 at 14:08 #

    While they both look fantastic I think Penelope’s red is so gorgeous that I have to vote for her.

  20. ber May 26, 2011 at 14:04 #

    I prefer Celine’s neckline more.

  21. Christine May 26, 2011 at 14:01 #

    For me it is not that clear cut: I prefer the lower neckline of Celine Dion’s dress and I love the necklace with it. But I did vote for Penelope Cruz because of the way the light is reflected in the red material, which I find breathtaking.

  22. Pati May 26, 2011 at 13:50 #

    This is quite a tricky one. I won´t vote. Love both looks! Celine´s look is so fresh and elegant and her body looks amazing in this dress! And the necklace is just so stuning! Her make up and hair is also flawless! Penelope on the other hand looks so hot and statesque in this dress! She´s tiny, yet she stands 6 ft tall in this dress! The colour is gorgeous on her and I love her accessories and make up as well. Two very different but equally stunning looks!

    • heather May 26, 2011 at 15:15 #

      I agree-it’s a tie! I thought Celine’s jewelry looks wonderful with the dress, but Penelope’s look doesn’t need anything. Celine sometimes looks a bit severe with her hair up and it looks great here, and Penelope looks wonderful with an updo. So they really both win for me.

  23. robbie May 26, 2011 at 13:42 #

    celine wins for me, penelope looked sexy but the dress just looked way too shiny for my taste.

  24. shubby doo May 26, 2011 at 13:12 #

    penelope cruz…is my hands down winner!

  25. aiyu May 26, 2011 at 13:08 #

    I voted for Penelope.
    I also noticed that Celine’s version is cut lower than Penelope.
