Fashion Faceoff: Rachel Bilson vs. Kate Hudson

04/12/2007 at 01:48 PM ET

As soon as we saw Kate Hudson in her super-cute Chanel dress at the Tom Ford dinner last night, we knew we had already fallen in love with it — back when Rachel Bilson wore it to a Chanel dinner in L.A. in January. We think that both women look sweet and sophisticated in their bow and chain-laden frock — and we can’t possibly decide who we like it better on. But we know you can! Tell us: who wears their Chanel dress better? Rachel or Kate?

it looks cute on both, but is too dark for rachel and kate’s blonde hair gives enough color to not make it look too dull.

Kate Hudson looks way better!

The dress looks adorable, and while Rachel and Kate are adorable as is, the dress looks better on Kate. So my vote goes to Kate. Rachel’s bows look frumpy on her. Plus I can’t even notice anything below the dress, because the tights are way too dark, IMO. I agree with someone stating that with Kate’s blonde hair, it adds a touch of color or sunshine to the look. Plus the tights on Kate are much better, IMO, but I like both their shoes, even though I can’t really notice Rachel’s shoes. The dress seems to sit and fit Kate’s frame better, and I like the shorter length of the dress too. Rachel is cute and I like some of her fashion choices, and she looks super adorable, but I just like the dress better on Kate. Anything can look great on Kate. She’s so hippy chic. She’s just like her mom, she’s so happy and quirky looking, with a bubbly personality.

Also, Kate is only 27 yrs. old, so she’s not old like some are inclined to think. I think Rachel is 25 yrs. old, I believe someone already mentioned that. Not much of an age difference.

Kate is by far the best (especially with the tights)

I don’t particularly like the dress, but Kate wears it better. It looks too baggy and rumpled on Rachel, and the shorter length on Kate looks better.

Summer on

I think that Kate Hudson wears it better only because her pantyhose are opaque enough to tell where they end and the dress begins. It looks like it fits her better too. RB looks beautiful as always though.

Amber on

Kate wears it better….

Ridz on

What an ugly dress.

This dress in unattractive, (tsk, tsk, Karl Lagerfield) but if I had to choose- it would be Kate Hudson. I adore Rachel Bilson, but Kate wears this dress with opaque black tights and crisp bows that give it that certain appeal that it needs in order to pull it off. I think she wears it with a flirtacious attitude that ups the fun factor of it, so that we don’t take it so seriously and can enjoy it being a little awkward.


Kate absolutely wins this round. She already has an adorable look to her & the dress is just fitting.
