Runway to Red Carpet: Rosario Dawson's Cannes Gown

Whenever we see gorgeous gowns coming down the runway, we always try and imagine which star will rock it on the red carpet. Sexy and slinky? Give that to Christina Aguilera. Daring and elegant? Calling Cate Blanchett! So, we love it when stars step out in the runway confections, like Rosario Dawson did this week at the Death Proof premiere in Cannes. She dazzled in the elaborate crystal-encrusted showstopper — previously modeled by Gisele Bundchen at Dolce & Gabbana’s show back in February. (We spotted Naomi Campbell in a similar version, too!) We think the gown is to die for and both women look stunning. Tell us what you think: Is the dress better on the runway or the red carpet?

ummmm…no. how mean of people to put her pic side by side with gisele’s. not flattering to her waistline at ALL.

There’s a reason Gisele was wearing that black belt…

i just donĀ“t think Rosario has a nice body. The dress is very pretty but just not for her body type.

I think the trick is that black belt. Like steph said, there’s a reason Gisele wore it. And Rosario should have had it too.

Amanda Beckman on

Nope, not feeling it.

Rosario may look better with the corsette style belt that Gisele is wearing…

Canadian, eh? on

Too shiny for me!


the belt made the outfit… without it she looks pretttyy bad

It’s as if she has a clear belt on. Either way, it’s not a good fit. It could be pretty in a different fit that complimented her more.

Have to go with Gisele. The dress just doesn’t do anything for Rosario off the runway.

claudia on

she is a pretty girl but that dress does not looks goods on her it can only look good on the super skinny model.

glad on

why cant people be honest and tell her when something does not look good on her…or why cant she look in the mirror and see for herself..maybe she is scared.

I’m going with Gisele on this one. Rosario *probably* could have pulled this dress off if she was wearing the belt. Without the belt, the dress doesn’t look all that great. Also, if I was Rosario I would have done something with the hair. This dress isn’t a plain dress, it has style, and making the dress look low-key doesn’t look good at all.

The dress is plain ugly. belt or no belt, giselle or rosario

Gisele looks stunning in this dress.
She pulled it off way better.
The black belt completes the look.

Christina on

Gisele wears it better, especially with the belt.
