The Showdown: Mila Kunis in 2011 vs. Natalie Portman in 2009
The Editor’s Pick: Mila Kunis
Who Made the Call?: Senior Style Editor Zoë Ruderman
Why She Chose It:
It’s Black Swan: Redux! Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman are going head-to-head and only one can come out on top! OK, fine, it’s slightly different. No tutus, no crazy and nobody dies at the end of this competition.

Anyhow, back to the showdown at hand: This is probably Natalie’s personal best on the red carpet. The sweetheart neckline of her Rodarte gown is really flattering, the color and jeweled accents on the bodice are fun, but don’t cross the border into Pageant Town (though they come close) and the fit is just perfect. But Natalie’s personal best isn’t enough to beat Mila in her Elie Saab creation.

That lavender color! That gauzy ethereal skirt! That train! That simple belt to accentuate her tiny waist! But let’s get to the real reason I’m enamored of the gown: THAT CLEAVAGE. Mila’s boobs have never looked so good. The peekaboo lace (which looks like a sexy bra showing, but in a totally classy way) is so gorgeous, it made me want to throw out every non-lace bra I own and always wear mine peeking out from under a shirt (at least around my apartment).

I don’t know if I’m ready to say this Elie Saab is the best Oscars gown from the past 10 years (there’s some stiff competition in that bracket), but in the battle between Mila and Natalie, the obvious winner is Mila and her, uh, golden globes.

Natalie Portman is just drop dead gorgeous in this dress,sorry Mila but you Don’t come close to her beautiful face.She is such a natural beauty.The dress brings out all her sensuality.MILA is just a average girl.Really nothing special about her.

I agree, Natalie Portman’s dress is stunning and she looks great in it. Both do. And, even though both are wearing a quite “simple” dress, it’s the little details in Mila’s dress that just give her an extra something.

I loved Mila’s dress! The whole dress design is far more interesting than Natalie’s dress. And to me Mila is a winner here.

Natalie is the best. Whatever she wears she can make it great. She got the real true beauty compared to any hollywood actress. Her hair color, her skin color, her brown wide eyes, her cheekbones, her round cute head, her nose and her super cute size, her sweet voice and her being a simple but classy person in every way. Oooooh. . . If I could only have her. My dream woman
