Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Hudson Have a Same-Day Fashion Faceoff

We love a good Fashion Faceoff here at PEOPLE StyleWatch — and we get extra-enthusiastic when two stars are spotted out in the same distinctive dress on the same day. The stars involved may be less excited than we are about this fun coincidence, but since these two were separated by 2,000 miles, we think they won’t mind too much if we discuss dress details.

Both Jennifer Hudson and Kim Kardashian took this Donna Karan fall 2013 dress for a spin Friday night — Kardashian for a date night with love Kanye West in L.A., Hudson to the Chicago Film Festival premiere of The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. And the two divas showed how one dress can serve two very different purposes, based on fit and accessories alone.

Hudson set out to portray her serious actress side, wearing the draped gray dress closed at the neck and accessorized with barely-there jewels and heels. Kardashian, on the other hand, showed off her hard-won post-baby bod, baring a little more leg and décolleté (as well as her Nori necklace).

The dress is great on both of them, so this may be one of those rare Faceoffs where no one loses, but if you have any strong opinions about who wore it better, please share them below!

They both look nice, but I think that Kim looks best, she fills it out better. I love that Jen has kept off the weight though, both lovely ladies.

Jennifer looks better. Kim needs a bra or a better one.

I think Jennifer looks better.

You can see Jennifer’s Spanx through the dress. Fail!

Wrong dress, wrong material for Kim. Reminds me of mashed potatoes wrapped in saran wrap. She definitely could use an over the shoulder bolder holder.

Jennifer has CLASS! and Kim looks like a sausage that wants to burst open under pressure. Kanye is trying so hard to make her look like Beyonce, this will never happen……. Kim should just go back to making porn movies for her Mom to peddle

Kim looks like trailer trash . . . put on a bra.

The dress itself is just plain horrid – wouldn’t look good on anyone but a runway model.

Jennifer had the class to close the front of the top making her look chic. Kim looks sloppy with the top flopping open.

hey kim! there are these things called bras… you should look into one.
