Fashion Faceoff: Lindsay vs. Jamie-Lynn

04/02/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

When we saw Jamie-Lynn Sigler wearing her gold dress to a Factory Girl screening in January, we thought how adorable and easy-to-wear the frock was. But when we saw Lindsay Lohan wearing an identical dress out on the town in L.A., we thought it’s a fashion faceoff! But, with a little bit of digging (actually a lot of digging and emails later), we found out that while the dresses look the same, they are actually by two different designers! Lindsay’s dress is by ABS, while Jamie-Lynn’s is by small designer label Fighting Eel — but are virtually the same, down to the shoulder seats and ruching above the bust. Well, in the name of a good fashion faceoff, we say it’s close enough to ask the question: Who wears it better? Lindsay or Jamie-Lynn?

I would have to say Jamie-Lynn wears it better. However, it looks worse on Lindsay because she isn’t posing for the picture.

Jamie Lynn wears this dress a lot better than Lindsay in my opinion. She seems to have a better body for the dress, and her skin tone goes a lot better with the dress.

Dawn on

Jamie Lynn wears it better in the pictures but if lindsey was in a different pose and lighting maybe her.

tara on

i think jamie wear rocks it so much better!!

Mrs.Borrego on

I’d have to say Jamie Lynn HANDS DOWN!

e.dahl on

Jamie Lynn, LiLo always seems to make nice clothes go bad.

Elda on

love the dress, Jamie looks way better!

Rebecca on

Jamie Lynn wears it better. Lindsay usually manages to look a mess and this picture is no exception.

Dee on

LINDSAY hands down! I love the effect of the gold in her hair, make-up, and jewelry and how they play off the metallic color of the dress. She looks like a total golden goddess…go girl!

alice on

Defiantly Jamie Lynn. No contest.

marhaba on

Jamie wears it much better. The color suits her, and the ruching is more flattering to her slim figure.

edot on

LL’s heavier up top which makes the dress look sort of like a sack. With a straight frame, it suits Jamie-Lynn better.

judii on

jamie-lyn looks better on that dress

Linhnie on

I bought this same cute Fighting Eel dress for Christmas last year and I got so many great comments on it. ABS probably did a knock-off of it since that is what they do. Jamie looks really hot in it.

beth on

definitely jamie lynn. the color is awful on lindsay. and i don’t think she has the legs to wear all the short things that she does.

Sarah B. on

um, NEITHER!! That dress is UGLY!

Terra on

Jamie – hands down……..

me on


Ashley on

Strange dress, unfair pics to compare. Altho, I think Jamie’s skin tone goes better with the gold color of the dress. Lindsay – us fair skinned girls can’t look great in ALL colors…

KT from Cda on

It would be easier to give an opinion if Lindsay was standing still. How can you really see what her dress looks like?

AnnieM on

Jamie (although that is not a very attractive dress).

Ainsley on

Definitley Jamie Lynn. WHO likes lindsay lohan? Never met anyone.

KC on

Ummm to be honest I think I would wear it best as soon as I get it I’ll take a picture in it. The dress is sooooooo cute!

Camille on

I think this dress looks better on Jamie-Lynn. I also strongly dislike Lindsay’s blonde hair, I prefer her with brunette or her natural red-head.

Katy on

Jamie-Lynn definetly wears it better. she is such a pretty girl!

debbs on


Meghan on

Personally I think the dress is ugly!! therefore in my opinion it looks horrible on both girls!!

Tammy on

Lindsay always looks good i think she pulled it off way better

Mattingly on

I can’t really say since Lindsay isn’t standing still in the photo. I like the dress on both of them, but much more on Jamie Lynn.

The top part of the dress seems to flatter Jamie Lynn much better and not so much Lindsay, because she’s got more going on at the top (you know what I mean). Someone already stated it, Lindsay wears it more like a sack. But since they’re different dresses, maybe the one Lindsay is wearing is meant to be a mini, which I would think would flatter her more if it were longer like Jamie Lynn’s, but however, since Lindsay is more top heavy, maybe the dress rises on her and makes the dress look like a mini. I do like the tights, shoes and accessories on Lindsay. However, I don’t like her hair, she looks better as a brunette or her natural red hair. Jamie Lynn looks beautiful in the dress and I love how the gold looks great with her skin tone.

Palestine on

I would say… Jamie lynn cuz her skin tone goes with that color dress. Lindsay is too white. Even though both girls are hott.


i think lindsay wears it better,

Diane on

The dress is simply adorable. Both actresses look great, but the pantyhoses need to go, a tan would’ve better complimented the dress and accessories.

ciara on

i think jamie looks well better x

Emily on

Jamie-Lynn looks a lot better in these pictures. Partly because she is posing and partly because Linsay’s dress almost drowns her a bit. I think she needed a size smaller and her tights are a little too dark for the dress she is wearing.

supson on

look Lindsay Lo is kicking ass in this little fashion face off no offense jamie

Brandi on

Jamie Lynn wears the dress better! Her skin tone compliments the dress better and overall it looks better on her!



c on

i think it looks good on jamie-lynn only because she has the better picture and shes posing. unfair for lindsay tho cus she isnt posing.

Vicky on

I think Jamie looks SO much better because she is actually wearing a bra! I don’t know why Lindsay Lohan thinks its acceptable to walk out of her house without her bra on!

zina on

awful dress. what were they thinking? and i really hate Lindsay Lohan’s tights. She wears them everywhere and they are really not flattering. I think you call them pantyhose in america.

Rachel on

I would say that Lindsay wears it better because she looks younger and she added some accessories to the outfit. I wouldn’t say that it’s perfect, but it looks better than it is on Jamie-Lynn.

Michelle on

Jamie-Lynn just carries herself much better! I think Jamie-Lynn would look better in anything next to MS. Lohan

Samantha on

Jamie-Lynn because she just make the dress look better and lindesy doesn’t.

shelby on

i would have to say that lindsay wears it better because she has a cooler sence of style, well to me she does. i think it looked prettier on her than it did on jamie-lynn.

jessica on

sorry girls but LINDSAY wears it way better because it reflects her hair in a nice way

someone on

I think that Jamie Lynn wears the dress so much better, on linsey lohan it just looks ok

Nicole (L) on

what is with everyone battling against lindsey? shes awesome and she totally pulled this dress off….jamie is wearing this dress to a premier it looks like….at least lindsey knows that this dress is a casual look
u go lindsey!

Olivia on

Lindsay Lohan…… Jamie Lynn is conservative to the point of boredom. Her hair and makeup is really plain jane. Lindsay glows in the dress but i must say the pantyhose really does her no favours.

Catz on

Jamie-Lynn by faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar! I’m bored with Lohan btw..let’s take a break from her..unless she does something important like get arrested!

Danette on

whenevr lindsay is in the (who wore it best) i never pick her. the other person always looks better. i dont like her in short dresses. jamie looks better. it fits her better than lindsay. it look to big on her.

Emery on

I think Jamie-Lynn wears it better!

josi on

I would have to say lindsay. well. they both look good. but she didnt get to pose. i think if she got a chance to pose for this pic then opinions would have changed. It just looked like she paired it better and wore it better overall
