Fashion Faceoff: Hayden vs. Maria vs. Eva!

05/17/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

One-strap dresses were a major statement of the red carpet season, showing up on everyone from Kate Winslet to Beyonce. So, when Eva Mendes wore her black one-shoulder Jay Godfrey dress to the Spike TV Awards in December, she was ahead of the curve. But the look is still fresh and on target for summer — check out Maria Menounos in the bright springy green version of the dress recently at the premiere of Kickin’ It Old Skool and Heroes star, Hayden Panettiere, donned the eggplant color for Entertainment Weekly’s UpFront Party in New York City this week. Want the dress for yourself too? The Jay Godfrey silk dress is available exclusively at for $495 in black, white, green and blue. Not bad for star style, but a little pricey for the rest of us. Try this similar one-strap goddess dress, in black or green, at, for only $98.

Tell us: Who looks better in this Jay Godfrey one-strap frock: Hayden, Maria, or Eva?

I think these dresses are HOT and would look good on small women to larger women. It’s also very feminine, but I can’t afford either price!!! Any idea where we could possibly find cheaper ones? since I will definately rock this look this summer!

i like this dress on hayden the most! the colour and the fit are great! the green version is a bit, hmmm, too lime green…and black is boring!

Hayden most definitely looks the best out of the 3. {Maybe it’s because I’m partial to the color of the dress!} To me, the green version looks like a nightgown. The black one DOES looks nice on Eva as well.
