RAMEY; Asadorian/Splash News online

Same day, same city, same dress — both Sarah Michelle Gellar and Liv Tyler hit the streets of N.Y.C. on Tuesday in their Tart “Denise” dresses. Both women look city-chic in their easy black jersey dresses and long gold chains. Sarah Michelle pairs hers with bow-topped ballet flats and a quilted Chanel bag, while Liv goes for flip-flops and her favorite Be & D tote. We think both women look great — and we’re loving the dress itself! Tell us: who do you think wears the dress better? Sarah Michelle Gellar or Liv Tyler?

SMG – she is super cute and always looks stylish and well put together.

They both look great, although each one has their own sense
of style. The dress looks shorter on Liv because she is taller, but she looks comfy and Sarah Michelle she looks
pulled together for an afternoon delight. I like very much
the dress probably will buy it. Its all in how you accessorize yourself. Yvonne

Zenda on

Sarah all the way!!
I dont like Liv too much…she looks…i dunno she looks wierd sometimes! And Sarah dont get so much attention!! I hope she gets pregnant soon!!

Chaz on

Love Liv, but Sarah wins this round

Sarah all the way! The dress makes Liv look bigger than she is, it fits Sarah better…plus Sarah has much cuter shoes and a nicer bag.

I think the dress looks better on Liv Tyler, only because the length is slightly shorter, and no it’s not shorter just because she is taller than Sarah. The shorter length isfresh and sassy while the longer length on Sarah is a tad matronly.

i LOVE both these girls, (show them more often please!!) and i think they look equally good. it’s a versatile piece that you could do a million things with.

Rebecca on

Liv gets my vote! The dress looks a little saggy on Sarah, and I like Liv’s flip-flops with it better. Liv always looks so radiant, confident, and naturally gorgeous.

O on

SARAH IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Chris on

I like Liv’s necklace. But the flip-flops….
Anyway, I don’t think Sarah should wear dresses with straps like these. It looks better on Liv.

Elda on

oh they both look nice and comfy!!

E! You are blind. That is NOT the same dress. Both are cute, but both of them being black doesn’t make them the same dress.

Heather on

I think Sarah Michelle Gellar looks better.

Leigh on

It too tough too call! They both look gorgeous! Liv is a little more casual, and SM is a more dressed up. Its a perfect example of wearing the dress multiple ways. Both look beautiful!

Vicious1 on

Like both girls, don’t care for the fit of the dress, period.

diana on

they both look great~

Angie on

I think Liv wears it the best and I like her casual look to it. Shes one of my favorites we need to see more of her.

Lauren R on

I’m a diehard Sarah Michelle Gellar fan so I have to go with her. She always looks fabulous and classy! I wish I looked like her. Live looks cute too though…

kate on

ummm does that dress have pockets?

Lenore on

I think they both loo great. Each one adds her own style which is great in the generic (as of late) Hollywood scene.

audrey on

Liv Tyler.
but it was close.
just that SMG is too skinny for the dress, it doesnt even fit her properly. she should have gotten it in a smaller size or something.

*star* on

sarah looks really pretty this time.

Kristen on

These two women are totally different. They are built completly different and have different coloring. It’s very hard to say who looks better.

alia on

I personally think Sarah looks a bit cuter in this dress…but Liv looks cute too!!–I just don’t love the necklace–

R on

I think it fits Liv better… looks too saggy on Sarah

Mary on

The dress looks great on both! Shows how versatile this dress is, it can be work either way, you can probably dress it up with some wedge sandals too.

kim on

Sarah needed the dress cut for someone petite. It’s sagging on her. I’ve seen it several times, actually, where she’s wearing a strapped dress that was obviously cut for women average height. I’m short, too, and I always make sure to have the straps adjusted so a top/dress fits properly.

Is that really the same dress on Liv, though? The straps and neckline look different. She looks comfy and casual. Perfect for a hot day.

Maryse on

I can’t choose, they both look fantastic. I like Sarah Michelle’s dress because I like the lower cut, but I don’t like the length, but I do like her shoes and accessories. I like Liv’s dress because of the length, but not crazy over the cut on top. I do like her accessories and her flip flops look adorable. I was thinking the same thing Mary, a nice pair of wedges would have also looked nice with the dress. Both women look beautiful and each does something nice with the dress. The dress is cute by the way.

Canadian, eh? on

SMG looks great. It is hard to give an opinion for Liv b/c she is lifting her dress up a bit. But I’m sure she looks great in it.

onur on

Sarah, of course!!!

ashley. on

I like them both.
Theyre style looks somewhat the same with this dress. But its a cute and easy-going piece.

Heather on

cute accessories on both girls.
but i think it’s sarah’s flat chest that made me say liv.
that vneck is not flattering for sarah.

Nick W. on

I love both ladies but Sarah looks way better in this one!
