Imagine how embarassed you would be if you walked into a party and saw another woman wearing your exact same dress. Now imagine doing it on the red carpet with hundreds of photographers! Jessica Simpson and Deborah Norville both attended last night’s Accessories Council Excellence Awards in New York in the exact same cheetah-print Michael Kors sheath dress — and both had to not only make it down the red carpet, but also appear onstage! We think both blondes look great in their trendy dress, but we want to know what you think! Tell us: Who looks better in their Michael Kors dress: Jessica or Deborah? What would you do in their situation?

it looks goregous on Jessica Simpson. it fits the body perfectly and on deborah it looks bad and saggy!

Sarah on

Jessica looks much more confidant in the dress, but it looks a little to tight and busy on her.

Also what is Deborah does not look good in it. I don’t like her shoes or the black tights. Yuck!

I don’t like the dress really anyways.

Dorothy on

Both ladies look good. Jess looks youger ans sexier but Deborah wears it really well too! But sure its a very embarassing situation and at this point I dont think anything could be done. That’s why I am always saying that if I was a celebrity I would ditch the “big designers names” and go for new aspiring designers(plenty outthere) that probably will cost much less, would be much more innovative and fun and I will be guaranteed nobody will show in the same dress ever:)

Both look terrific, but I prefer Deborah. She is taller, brainy, sophisticated, and always wears most anything very well. I think they are the same exact dress, but for her hieght her neck line is a little higher. Deborah hands down!

Kate on

The dress is okay and of course Jessica looks better…only us old girls try to match the hose to the outfit…but I would have paired it with a strappy sandal, and for pete’s sake STAND UP STRAIGHT.

Jessica, hands down. The dress is too tight along the torso for Deborah, making it look like she is squeezing in.

i think jessica simpson wins hands down no question! the black just doesnt work with the other person!

Tara on

I think the dress looks a lot better on Jessica. The neckline is better on her and Deborah should not be wearing stockings with the dress, if you have bare arms you should have bare legs it just does not look right. The dress is beautiful.

Victoria on

I definatly think that Jessica looks better, she has a brighter face for the dress, you dont want to be completely dark, you want to show the dress off just like Jessica has done here

Rachel on

I think it looks better on Jessica. It accentuates her curves better than on Deborah. It actually looks really nice and classic on Jessica. If I were in their situation, I’d grab the other person and pose for pictures with her. It wouldn’t really bother me that much at all.
