Fashion Faceoff: Ashlee vs. Elisha

10/14/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Jumpers are a major look for fall, and designer Katy Rodriguez, owner of hot vintage boutique Resurrection in L.A. and New York, is one to watch. So it makes sense that more than one star would be attracted to her adorable button top jumper. Ashlee Simpson wore hers to dinner with big sis Jessica at the Ivy in Los Angeles, giving it a rock n’ roll spin with a white tank and tough black boots. Elisha Cuthbert went the vintage route, forgoing a shirt and picking up a pair of hot red peep-toe pumps. Tell us who wears it better: rocker Ashlee or pinup Elisha?

Elisha wears it better, it’s not messy like the way Ashlee is wearing hers.

celebfan on

I hate to say this…but ashlee does wear it better. Although you have to be really, really stick thin to wear this jumper or else the gathers in the front will make you look really overweight. So the only reason that ashlee looks bgetter is because she is really really abnormably thin!!! Maybe kate bosworth or nicole richie should wear this too…then maybe they’ll look normal for a change!!!

Jessica on

They both look stupid

Deepti on

Definately Ashlee. That dress seems to go with the outfit shes wearing. For Elisha, it looks okay, but its still missing something.

Michelle on

You need some glasses KAT, Ashlee’s hair looks clean.

reality on

I don’t like it on either of them. Ashlee’s hangs too low in the front – doesn’t fit her properly in the chest. However, her boots, undershirt and bag go perfectly. On the otherhand, Elisha’s version fits her in the chest, but has none of the much needed accessories. Consequently, both get a thumbs down.

Alexandra on

I think it really depends on how you look at it. They are both pulling off two differant looks. I think it works with both of them.

Elisha: Her look is more of a dressed up style. She did a great job by not over accessorizing, and the color complements she used were very nice. She looks very classy.

Ashlee: She is working more of a vintagy rock look. This is actually how I would wear it myself. She also did great with not over accessorizing. The only thing that would make it slightly better is if she would have pulled her hair back or something.

Overall, they both look great.

hart braka on

i think they both look gr8

Andrea on

I’ve found better looking clothes at the thrift store.

That “dress” does nothing for a woman’s figure either.

Ellie on

i think ashlee looks GORGEOUS in this pic. i love the way she paired the jumper w/ a tank top & boots. in my opinion, ashlee is not fake like jessica, has better music and is much prettier.

rebeccaR on

Elisha looks way better than Ashlee, I love her red heels with the black dress. Ashlee’s hair and tank top look messy and sloppy.

Jen on

I’m personally not huge fan of the dress on either of them. Ashlee does accessorize nicely with it though.

Carmen on

I think Elisha looks a lot more polished and professional than Ashlee in this outfit. Ashlee looks cute the way she wore it too, but Elisha is definitely more grown up and “hollywood” than Ashlee.

Natalie on

Ashlee looks very slouchy and messy in this dress – she should also stick to short hair, long hair looks sloppy on her. Elisha looks very poised and confident in this dress making her look better in it.

micheleeee. on

I’ll have to say that Elisha wear it better
but only because of the shoes.

Ashlees boots cover-up too much of the leg
while this dress would look better with exposed legs.

Ner on

I was just wondering if you could tell me what brand and where to get Jessica Simpson’s bag from Sept. 25th. It is red patent leather. Thanks

Holy Candy on

Ashlee’s undershirt makes it more classy. But it’s a universally unflattering dress!

em on

elisha looks way better, i luv ash and all but sometimes she doesnt exactly look as good as she can.

Jan on

I don’t like the jumper but Ashlee wears it the best. It looks bad without the shirt under it. And give Ashlee’s hair a break – it’s just the moment they took the picture. Does your hair stay perfectly in place after a night out? She’s taking a step foward and her hair is swinging foward.

Ner on

I was wondering what brand Jessica Simpson’s Red Patent Leather purse is in this picture and where I can buy it.

chris robinson on

My vote goes to Ashlee!

Rancette on

Elisha looks much better.

Paula Webber on

This is a horrible dress, now if you were dressing a sack of potatoes, I’d probably say go with the sack of potatoes. Honestly, this is not fashion, this is just plain UGLY!

Symara on

Elisha Cuthbert looks it better!

Abby on

Ashlee looks so much better!
Elisha looks boring! the hair, the accessoris looks 100 times better on ashlee then elisha

you2 on

ashlee by far

Alicia on

Honestly, I find these jumpers to be “maternity” styles and as far as I know, neither of the is pregnant. But if I had to choose, I like the way Ashley has paired hers with the tank and boots. It totally changes the look.

Diane on

one word-UGLY

Kate Hibben on

Can you tell me where to find that jumper, I would love to buy one. Thanks.

megan on

I like this dress alot. I love the white tank that Ashley has on under, but the boots, to me, kill the look.

erin o on

i think ashlee looks adorable in the jumper. the way she pairs things together are ingenius. cuthbert’s style is cute, but typical. it also doesn’t look right without some type of tank underneath the jumper. just my opinion. i’d totally wear ashlee’s outfit!

Rebecca on

I think Elisha looks a little nicer in the dress. Ashley would look so much better if she had good posture!

j on

i think they both pull it off in different ways. this type of dress would not suit someone w/a bigger chest, though.

Stephanie on

I think that Elisha looks better. Ashlee looks a bit frumpy. Katy Rodriguez has designed for many an a lister.

Eliza on

I think Ashley looks better, kind of has this girl-next-door look and it does go with her appearance.On Elisha it looks like a night gown with heels.Very tacky.
But I don’t like this outfit on anyone anyway.

Paula on

I think the outfit is very unflattering for the female figure…how can anybody call it cute?
I think Ashlee wears it better because she gave the rock n roll touch improving the appearance of this horrible jumper

belinda on

the both are very ugly

Tuesday on

Elisha wears it better, FOR SURE! Ashley looks dirty, she needs to clean up!!

Liz on

I think Elisha wears it better…all Ashlee needs to do is ditch the boots and get a different pair of shoes.

mkgghhd on

I think we all have to admit that Ashlee is beautiful with her new nose. I hope Jessica and their dad follows her lead. It can’t hurt Jess’s voice b/c she cannot sing to begin with.

Nikki on

Elisha wears it better for sure! Ashlee looks frumpy in hers.

melinda on

It doesn’t look good on either, but Ashlee looks 12 and dirty in it, so Elisha should win.

Kaitlyn on

I like it better on Elisha, but as someone stated, you can wear it in 2 different ways.

Ashlee may look frumpy, but she’s pulling off the dressing down to rocker chic look. I wouldn’t wear it with a tank top, but some other kinda shirt. I would wear a heal on the boot. Other than that, Ashlee is pretty.

Elisha is doing the dressing up look. She’s wearing hers to an event. I like how she paired the red pumps with the dress. I just love the open toe look. She looks very well put together and very pretty also.

Again, because I would have worn the jumper a little differently, I would wear it like Elisha has. Besides, I think the the jumper is too cute to make it look rocker like that. That’s just my opinion.


celebrities have so much money they sometimes buy trash!!!
they both look awful!!

LeeAnn on

i think asley would look better if she didnt whear those boots with it they do not look good at all

agostina on

ashlee is so much better!
i love ash !

lauren on

ok why do alot of people think ashlee looks better, are you serious. just look at the way she pulls it off it looks ugly, and weird on her. not cool, or cute at all. elisha looks so beautiful in this, it may be boring but its better than ashlee’s.

KT fr Cda on

Wow! “Little House On The Parrie” outfits are in style!

Anna on

On this pic Ashlee looks like Ana Beatiz Barros…really…she became better now…absolutely!

rachel b. on

Bela on

jay on
