Gucci Showdown: Hayden Panettiere Foolishly Follows Eva Mendes
That was evident when she attended the Last Night premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival almost a year ago in a red '70s-inspired, silk chiffon Gucci dress. She looked absolutely breathtaking in the flowy number that featured a high-neck, blouson sleeves and cinched waist.
The actress let the fabulous frock take center stage by pairing it with a matching clutch and strappy nude Jimmy Choo platforms. She also played up its retro feel with oversized Van Cleef & Arpels studs and scarlet lip. Long, wavy locks complmented the design's natural movement.
The impeccable Eva in the dress, which can so easily appear costumey on the wrong person, would be a tough act to follow. Enter wrong person, er, Hayden Panettiere.
The petite blonde turned up at the "Vanities" 20th anniversary party in Hollywood earlier this week in the same gown. Everything about her look reminded us of when we go into a fitting room to try something on and look at the mirror—hair undone, accessories out of whack.
Needless to say, Eva is our winner. Care to challenge us?
