Who Wore Gucci Better? Eva Mendes or Karen Elson

Eva Mendes chose to wear this beautiful Gucci silk chiffon dress from the Fall 2011 collection whilst out promoting her movie “Last Night” at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival back in April.

Her scarlet red 70s-inspired chiffon dress features long blouson sleeves and a matching belt to cinch in the waist.

Eva paired the dress with strappy nude Jimmy Choo heels and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, including gold earrings and two diamond rings.

She wore her hair in flowing waves to complement the vibe of the dress and added a sexy coral lipstick to her look.

Karen Elson wore the same dress to the launch of “Tonight We Tanqueray” in New York recently.

The stunning red-head looked striking in the dress, which she only accessorized with a pair of embellished strappy heels.

Karen also opted for matching red lipstick, which turned the heat up on her look several notches.

Whilst Eva looks amazing in red, I feel the dress is a little too conservative and covered up for sexy, curvy figure.

I love how the dress pops beautifully against Karen’s skin tone and hair colour so my vote is going to her.

    On Eva it looks like an old lady’s nightgown, but on Karen it looks beautiful! Just goes to show that some people wear clothes and other people let clothes wear them.

      Too funny, totally agree. Though in defensive of Eva rarely have I seen her clothes overwhelm her.

    Karen’s coloring – I don’t know, my thought is that she looks sort of like death warmed over, while Eva’s coloring is spectacular against the red.

      Karen looks ghostly (esp. pretty much without eyebrows). The deathly vibe throws me off the look. Eva looks vibrant and very much alive.

    This one’s dangerously close. I like how the dress billows out on Eva, like a flamenco dancer flare. It’s bringing me the drama I adore. Plus, with the bounce look of her curls, she’s giving out major sex pot. However, Karen’s demureness is selling me on her in the look. I like her hushed toned sexy she’s bringing in this look. I think for me, she’ll win on that quality alone. Plus red on red is a win-win almost every time!

    It’s Karen by a mile for me, the dress looks wonderful with her hair and skin tone, simple perfection.

    Definitely Karen, I just feel it suits her look more. Eva looks a bit like she could be in costume

    I like the “feel” the dress gets on Karen – it’s cool, it’s retro, a bit even “noir”-glamour. And I like her shoes better.

    The dress is gorgeous and both women wear it well but nothing beats a red-haired person in a red outfit, so I vote Karen.

    Eva looks like she’s drowning in a sea of red. Karen looks like she’s actually wearing a dress that fits her. Eva take it from me, you can’t hide curves like that.

    I don’t love it on neither of them but I give my vote to Eva for looking more confident in the dress.
