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?

My pick is Hayden. I love the color, it looks really nice set against her skin. I like her hair pulled up, because it showcases her shoulders. I like the long earrings which accentuates her neck and so forth. I like how she wore the big gold bracelet to offset everything. Love the shoes too. She looks beautiful.

Eva is a siren and looks good in almost everything, I just think black is too boring and too boring for her. She’s a beauty and I think the green dress would have looked nice on her. I love her hair and shoes though. It’s a toughy, but I choose Hayden, but Eva is gorgeous regardless of what she wears, and Hayden is a beauty as well.

Maria wears the dress nicely, but I don’t care for the green on her, even though it’s a nice color. Don’t really like Maria’s hair neither. All three are beautiful regardless.

In my opinion, Eva is the clear winner here.
The colour of Hayden’s dress, although pretty, makes her skin tone appear dull and her hair look flat.
Maria.. i don’t know, she just doesn’t carry the dress off as well as the other 2.
Eva’s hair, skin tone, shoes and bag complement her dress perfectly, and that bright red lipstick adds a dramatic sexy and sassy finish. Gorgeous =D

All 3 of them look like they’re wearing bath towels.

I think the color of Hayden’s dress is the best but Eva looks better altogether. I would have said Hayden but her pose is not the most flattering one. Maybe Hayden with a different pose? I also like Hayden’s shoes best.
