Some faceoffs are so good, we just can’t wait until Wednesday to share them with you. This is one of those times.

Miley Cyrus hit the stage Sunday night on The X Factor to perform her hit “Wrecking Ball.” No, she didn’t show up practically naked dangling over the audience. (As a matter of fact, Cyrus has been more covered up than usual lately.) Her ensemble of choice: a bronze backless lamé Marc Jacobs gown and black bejeweled Chanel turban (because it wouldn’t be a Miley outfit without a little bit of edge).

If this spaghetti strap slip-dress looks familiar, that’s because Nicole Richie wore the same design to the CFDA Awards earlier this year. Style Director Andrea Lavinthal loved it so much, she pegged it as her favorite gown of the year.

So it’s pretty clear we love the dress from Jacobs’s fall 2013 collection no matter who wears it — which is why we need your vote on which star styled it best. Aside from the fancy headgear, Cyrus kept the extras to a minimum. Richie added more shine via gold Christian Louboutins and delicate Jennifer Meyer jewels. The one similarity: Both ladies went for a red lip.

Who wears the gown better? Are you a fan of Cyrus’s turban? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Nicole looks classy and sexy and simply gorgeous. Miley looks horrible and doesn’t have any class. That turban looks silly

Nicole is a grown up woman. Miley is still ….. not.
Nicole wins, hands down

If I were the designer I would not want Miley Cyrus to put on anything with my label in it! She looks horrible, it just hangs on her, the black turban is pathetic looking. This girl is crying for attention and in the wrong way.

the dress on Miley looks like it needed ironing.
