With all of Oprah Winfrey‘s wealth and connections, you might think she would be exempt from Fashion Faceoffs — but not so apparently! The media mogul picked a hot-off-the-runway Gucci gown to wear to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party back in February, which just reappeared this weekend on the newly crowned Miss Universe, Riyo Mori of Japan. Don’t let the sash distract you — we want to know who really rocks the dress! Tell us: Who wears their Gucci gown better: Miss Universe or Oprah?

i wish people would lay off miss universe about being “too skinny.” they both look fabulous in their own way, and have two totally different body types and shapes.

Miss Winfrey because this dress suits curvy people more. I also think the colours suit her the purple,black and red.

Def Oprah. Even with the crown Miss Universe cannot compete. Everything about Oprah in this picture is just perfection.

And the age comments, WTF? Are women over 40 supposed to wear paper bags and gray everyday? I THINK NOT! Getting older is not a time to disappear, its a time to stand out.

haha i think the Gucci gown helped Riyo Mori to win. It’s so beautiful, i’ve got its runway photo here:
go check it out!

but i think Oprah looks better. Her healthy figure suits the gown

Oprah, Oprah wins, hands down. Miss Universe looks like a twig or something. No body shape at all…Oprah is rocking this dress.

It looks like they each were in the middle of a figure-skating routine that got out of hand and ended up with them being wrapped in curtains from the waist down. However, Oprah makes it work, somehow. Miss Universe just looks like she was too weak to unravel the curtains.

OPRAH! I think this dress is made for a plus sized woman it wood also look great on current Idol Jordin or former Idol contestant and oscar winner Jennifer Hudson or maybe J-Lo and Beyonce(who aren’t really plus sized but pretty curvy). The dress has the classic flattering empire waste and long sleeves and covers the legs so it’s great for a curvy or plus sized woman. I think it’s important to respect all body types and giving respect to fuller women shouldn’t entail insulting those who are very lean. People are built differently; being healthy and then flattering your figure is all that should matter. There are plenty of dresses that would look great on Miss Universe and would not be flattering on Oprah. It’s all about acentuating your features and dressing for your body type! As long as you are HEALTHY and try to celebrate your shape, it’s all good.
