It's a Shoe-Off: Lindsay vs. Nicole!

06/09/2008 at 12:23 PM ET

GM/FT/Flynet; SS/Flynet

Some shoes are just too hard to forget, and Nicole Richie‘s braided Balenciaga gladiator heels are just such a pair! So, when Lindsay Lohan hit the streets of L.A. in the exact same pair this weekend, we had to compare the two. Does Nicole wear it better with her skinny jeans and billowing top? Or does Lindsay’s leggy jean shorts take the cake? Tell us: Who do you think wears her Balenciaga gladiator heels better? Nicole Richie or Lindsay Lohan?

I like them better on Nicole. Lilo needs a tan!

jordan on

They look better on Nicole.

Lyla on

Nicole!! Always. She is a fashion ‘do!’

Leela on

Naturally Nicole. Lindsay is wearing them wrong, wrong, wrong. Those shoes are just too clunky for such short shorts and are unflattering on Lindsay’s petite frame! Nicole balances them better for a funkier statement.

Cucumber eyes on

Nicole definately… Lindsay is just trashy queen that needs sty asp…

Anne Marie on

Lindsay! The skinny jeans make Nichole’s feet look like a size 12!

Samantha on

I say Lindsay! Nicole just can’t pull this one off sorry! Regardless of the fact Lind does need a tan she can still pull off those shorts and shoes flawlessly.

Jenn on

Am I the only one that thinks those shoes are hideous???

Kat on

duhh, nicole.

JerseyGirl on

Well if I am forced to choose – Nicole… But honestly, these shoes are just F’UGLY!!! Not worth $600 pair – a complete waste of money – even for Celebs!

Liz on

I agree that the shoes are just not attractive, but Lindsay does not need a tan! Pale is OK, people.

laura on

nicole wears them better but those are one of the ugliest pairs of shoes i have ever seen. soooo ugly.

Kyndra on

Honestly i think those shoes are HIDEOUS!!!!

jen on

nicole , hands down!! Lindsay’s legs and face r 2 different colors

Mary on

Lindsay has disproportionately thick legs (compared to the rest of her body). I’ll go with Nicole.

diane on

Nicole wears them better, With Lindsay’s track record Nicole better check her closet to make sure Lindsay didnt steal them….

amy on

Nicole all the way!! Personally Lindsay has nice clothes but she has no idea how to wear them. Nicole is down to earth with her style but she always adds something funky. I don’t like the shoes either.

nikki on

I think that Nicole wears them better hands down and seriously those shoes are U-G-L-Y!

wolf1313 on

both look bad Don t like the shoe at all.

Elle on

It’s not really a fair comparison since one is front and one is side view.
One one hand, those shoes aren’t exactly designed to be worn with shorts, so I’m leaning more towards Nicole by 90%. (I own a pair, too)
Truthfully, though, the style isn’t that flattering on either.

diana on

those shoes r NOT ugly. i luv them! gladiator sandals r probably my fav type of shoes ever.

Susie on

Not everyone can get a tan. We need to appreciate fair skin for what it is. Tan for some people means skin cancer waiting to happen. Self tanning lotions and sprays can only take a person so far and they make a persons skin smell funny. I know, I’ve tried them all.

Laney on

I think the shoes are just plain ugly and nothing they have on will help.

TY on

Definitely Lohan- Nicole’s feet look huge!

valinda on

nicole, lindsey sucks!lolz…

AnnieJ on

The shoes are tacky, but Nicole wears them best. Lindsay’s legs are to big (fat) for that look she’s sportin’.

tina on

Lindsay has great legs! Not rail skinny!! Besides that I think she is annoying as hell and has no real hips, but her legs do rock.

Sherry on

Are we absolutely certain she didn’t steal those from Nicole?

Alison on

Vita: No one “needs” a tan. There’s more than one way to be beautiful, and ultimately Lindsay Lohan will look better than Nicole Richie because she won’t have leathery skin–or worse, skin cancer.

summer on

lindsay of course!!!!!!


Nicole definitely wears the shoes best. Lindsy never did have much style!!

Stephanie on

Am I the only one that doesn’t think Lindsay needs a tan??? She should embrace her natural skin tone (she’s a redhead; she’s SUPPOSED to be pale), cuz everytime she “tans” she looks orange and like she needs to take a shower. And the shoes are just plain ugly, no matter who’s wearing them.

Mandy on

Those shoes would only work if you were going to a toga party dressed as an ancient Roman dominatrix! Lindsay’s paleness would be OK if she still had red hair–as a fellow redhead, I think that tans, natural or fake, make us look like Oompa Loompas! Pale blondes, though, look deathly ill.

Jane on

Nicole definitely looks better in them. Lindsay is pale and her legs aren’t that great!

reddwolf088 on

What the hell was Lindsay thinking?? Looks like a prostitute. Come on girl you can do way better than that!!!

TT on

What the hell was Lindsay thinking?? She looks like a prostitute!! Well I guess it doesn’t matter when you don’t have to impress men!!

Mary on

Lindsay does it better. Nicole’s look like huge bowling shoes!

regina on

I honestly choice nicloe because she can wear them better.

tracy on

i think it looks better on Lindsay.
The shorts make her shoes get the most spotlight it can get! Flaunt those legs!

coco on guys serious…does ir really matter if these shoes look better on whom..its just shoes…can a person wear shoes because he/she feels like he/she can… anybody have to make an article and a big deal over who looks better with these shoes on……what is the world coming to

Jonathan Bodack on

The shoes look better on Nicole Richie, etc.

Steph on

Shoes are horrible. But in the world of celebrity shoe crimes, Lindsey def gets the award. At least the skinny jeans on Nicole make the shoes work, on Lindsey all you see are bright white legs.

Stanley Shoes on

Those are the ugliest shoes I have seen in a very long time, yikes! And those bright white legs – ack! ack! ack!

Nicole looks better but needs a nice haircut don’t ya think, and Linds needs a vacation away for a very long stay, so sick of hearing about her, she is way overdone!

And did I say the shoes, ack! give me a pair of Privos anyday!

Are we absolutely certain she didn’t steal those from Nicole?

I think Lindsay Lohan wears them better because it makes her legs appear longer and the shorts go well with the shoes. I don’t like them on Nicole because they make her look short and ugly, oh wait, she already IS ugly. I also don’t like them on Nicole because she DOESN’T have fashion sense, Lindsay does. I like LLO’s new leggings line.
