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?

Eva looks the best hands down. The dress is great on all the ladies but Eva’s whole look just works perfectly together. Gorgeous!

Hayden… definately Hayden! The outfit, the hair, the shoes the all work. Eva should have worn her hair up… and Maria should have looked in the mirror!

That dress is adorable! Maria definitely looks the best in it. Eva also looks good, but I do like the green version better, and I think it suits Maria a bit more. Hayden, however, doesn’t wear the dress very well. I don’t know if she’s just too short, or what, but she doens’t have the “long and lean”, glamorous look that the other two have. In this dress, at least, she just looks stubby.

Eva looks the best-the hair the shoes are just perfect.The green color on Maria is just not right and with the silver sandals gets even worse.

Nicole – are you serious? First of all, bony or doughy does NOT describe ANY of these girls. Especially “doughy” Hayden – who I think is the most gorgeous young starlet out there now. She is only 17 years old and will probably and unfortunately thin out like Lindsay Lohan has – remember Lindsay a few years ago and how beautiful she looked? Now she is just like the rest of Hollywood – too thin, too crazy, too spoiled! Hayden is FRESH and lovely. I think all these gals look great in this dress but in different ways – Eva is classy, Maria is bright and happy and Hayden is charming! Most guys would go NUTS for any girl in such a great looking dress – whether she is young or old, skinny or doughy, blonde or brunnette etc. Please!

I like all three dresses, but I think Eva looks most elegant.
