Fashion Faceoff: Mariska vs. Gabrielle (The Same Night!)

11/15/2006 at 10:49 AM ET

Monday night, Mariska Hargitay attended the Alliance for Children’s Rights gala in Los Angeles while wearing this stunning chocolate brown Carolina Herrera frock. Unbeknownst to her, Gabrielle Union hit the Carolina Herrera boutique opening in the same dress elsewhere in town. Luckily they didn’t meet up — talk about fashion crisis! We think both actresses look fantastic, and we love that the straps can be worn on or off the shoulder. Tell us: Who do you think wears it better? New mom Mariska or Running with Scissors cutie Gabrielle?

this is one time when both women are beautiful and ar classy ladies. But i just love mariska, and the fact that she just had a baby boy i would have to give it to her. But Gabrielle is not too shabby!

They both look good in the dress. I think it’s funny they wore it the SAME night.

They both look Great! However, Mariska needs a new hairstyle. That pin straight look is whack. It makes her look older.

Gabrielle gets my vote – just look at the elegance of her beautiful, clear carmel physique tastfully poured into the stunning chocolate brown frock. Yum! … You KNOW the folks at Carolina Herrera must be smiling big time!

I think Mariska looks better in this beautiful dress! Fortunately, one of them is called Naomi Campbell to beat the other who wears the same dress…

They both look great, but I’d have to say Gabrielle. She is just beautiful!!

I’ll have to vote for Mariska. I think she looks even better than pre-baby. I think motherhood and marriage has added confidence and much happiness to her life. Her smile says it all and that is her greatest accessory!

I’m going to have to go with Gabrielle, the color of the dress accents her skin beautifully. In Mariska’s case (though I love her!) I think the color of her dress matches her hair color to closely. But she looks great for just having a baby!

Angie on

Mariska Hargitay wins hands down! She looks absolutely amazing!

melissa smith on

I have to give it to Gabrielle!
