The Two Best Dressed Stars of the Week: Dakota Fanning and Scarlett Johansson

09/07/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Yeah, yeah, we know. There’s only one true winner of the title. And we know Dakota Fanning won it fair and square in her Elie Saab gown, which garnered over 20,000 votes. But, come on, look at Scarlett Johansson’s dress and tell us, how could we not honor it?

Both gowns were selected for premieres at the Venice Film Festival and both gowns show a lot of cleavage. But that’s where the similarities end.

Fanning’s midnight-blue couture creation features a plunging V-neckline and plunging Vs under each arm as well. (Check out these pictures to see what we’re talking about.) The dress, which she trotted out at the Night Moves premiere, was covered in sequins for a really eye-catching effect.

Speaking of eye-catching, the neckline on Johansson’s Versace gown. Yowsa. Her off-the-shoulder stunner, selected for the premiere of Under the Skin, combined with that dazzling Bulgari necklace were so attention-grabbing that most of the world didn’t even notice that the actress was wearing a diamond on her left ring finger. The whole look garnered nearly 20,000 thumbs up from readers.

Check out who else made the Top 10 list this week (be prepared for more in-your-face cleavage) and be sure to vote for your favorites.

So, do you think Fanning deserved the honor of being named Best Dressed? Or should Johansson have been crowned the winner?

Wow this is who you guys chose as best dressed? I can see where you guys are coming from w/Dakota, but Scarlett? Um no, between her tacky tan lines and ill fitting dress… I’ll pass.

Agree with Manda, very ill fitting dress on Scarlett. I don’t think she thought her undergarments through. *shrug*

Marcia on

SJ’s dress is nòt flattering, at all. Makes her look matronly and instead of her usually sexy cleavage she looks like she needs a good bra. Her necklace, though, is to die for.

I disagree!!! Scarlett looks simply beautiful!!! Exquisite!!

cjraines on

I really think Scarlett’s dress fits poorly and made her look chunky. She is a beautiful woman; she should know how to accent her best features.

Queen C on

Dakota needed to do something with her flat hair and flat chest before even being considered for Best Dressed. My goodness who were the competition? Scarlette’s hair needs work bit she could have carried this title herself.

Amy on

Scarlett’s dress looks exactly like the bridesmaids dress I wore when I was maid of honor in my sister’s wedding in 1998.

Marina on

I love the dress Dakota is wearing. .. but it doesn’t look good on her at all. It’s far more sophisticated then she is. . . the dress is wearing HER – as opposed to the other way around. Scarlet could wear a potato sack and look amazing. . . she’s that stunning.

Dakota yes, Johannson, no way!


IMALADYTOO- You spelled Johansson wrong! DUMMY!
