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?

Okay, to start my little commentary I love fashion, so I am going to be critical. I love, the color on Hayden, it brings color into her cheeks and and really goes well with her blonde hair. However, her hair in that type ponytail is hideous and very strange looking.
I don’t Maria Menous should get any props because not only is she copying another styles EXACTLY, but with this over powering seafoam green color, wacky too-tightly curled hair, and bright red lipstick…well, I think my eyes are bleeding
I think Eva Mendes should really get snaps for her beautiful old hollywood hair, gorgoues understated make-up, and inovative fashion sense. My only problem is that she is a beautiful women who could wear almost any color and she chooses black. Oh well, better luck next time Eva!

The dress is pretty but i love the green color …. hmm but all in all eva has the glamour look. HAyden and maria look cute. Im very pettite and wear heals all the time since i was 13 lol straps make legs look shorter. Hayden could pull off a more curve hugging dress.
