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?

Miss Universe! She looks like a spunky, cute young lady in it but big O looks like and old lady trying to be spunky, cute and young. just isnt working on O for me.

I love how acceptable it is to insult a thin women but totally taboo to say anything about someone who is overweight. This girl looks healthy thin, not sickly thin. Get a life.

Salma Hayek has also worn this dress too! They both look good in it, but I like it better on Riyo Mori.

This looks like a gypsy dress its not stylish at all so unless its worn by a real gypsy fortuneteller with a crystal ball and a scarf on the head or by somebody pretending to be one on Halloween it just should go to the garbage.

glad on

do you even have to ask..its soo obvious that it looks a 1000 times better on Ms. Universe..

Miss Universe looks better but Oprah looks great too!

oprahh allll the wayyyy…miss universe is waaay too skinny to me in that dress…it’s made for someone with curves and who says older people can’t wear bright colors???

I personally think that Oprah looks much more pretty on this dress. I have to agree that Miss universe is way to skinny and did not deserve to win there were girls who were a lot more beautiful than her. For example Brazil, Venezuela, Korea.

Oh god, some of you girls are just deluded. The Miss Universe/Miss USA contests are not just about who is the prettiest. It is also about how one carries herself, exuding confidence and charisma. I did not watch the Miss Universe competition, but I am glad that Miss Japan won, because I too am Asian and appreciate any Asian role models.

And as for the snide comments about the skinniness of the new Miss Universe, consider this–we Asians, especially those from the Orient, tend to be thin and flat-chested. That’s genetics. This isn’t something that any of us can control. We’d much appreciate it if all of you would stop with insensitive comments about someone who may be considered “too” skinny.

As for the dress, Miss Universe wins hands down. The dress definitely suits her coloring and she looks gorgeous in it (I envy her 5’9″ height).

Meesh on

Calling Miss Universe “healthy skinny” is absurd, she looks anorexic (which has NOTHING to do with her Asian genetics). Her head looks too large for her body which is a perfect indication that she is underweight for her height.

Oprah looks gorgeous in that dress, it is better suited for her body type. I’m not sure what age has to do with it since this dress isn’t exactly the most youthful dress I’ve ever seen.
