Fashion Faceoff: Jennifer vs. Juliette

09/28/2006 at 04:11 PM ET

Nothing deflates the thrill of a new purchase faster than seeing someone else wearing the same dress. So imagine how stars must feel when they see photos of other celebs in the same frock they thought they were rocking. . . Jennifer Lopez wore this kimono-style Roberto Cavalli dress while acting as the Grand Marshall, along with hubby Marc Anthony, of the Puerto Rican Day Parade earlier this summer in New York. A newly blonde (rumors swirl that it’s for a role) Juliette Binoche turned up at the Venice Film Festival in a black version of the same dress. Great fashion minds really do think alike. Tell us who wore it better: Juliette or Jennifer?

Jennifer’s is definitely so much better!

msnancy on

jennifer of course hands down

Mrs.Borrego on

I’d have to say Jennifer wears it better. She glows! Ever since she married Marc Anthony she looks genuinely happy. You go Jennifer!

Julie on

Truthfully I dont care for the dress at all



Hina on

Definetly JLO!

Melisa on

Jennifer looks so much better in the dress. Everything goes great with the dress, the shoes, the earring, the hairstyle. I give Jennifer a 10!

Gigi on

J-Lo – shoes are a better match and she looks radiant!

rlf on

Jennifer wears it better. The fit is 1000 times better on her and her shoe choice is better. The gold sandle elongates her leg while the choice of a chunky black t-strap really shortens the line. All in all, JLO wore it better.

Courtney on



jen can pull it off

Lillian Gorham on

I think Jennifer is looking very mature these days; I barely recognize her. She is a little long in the tooth to be sporting such a dress. Her hair loss is very evident and the pulled back style does her no justice. I think Jennifer is trying very hard to reingratiate herself to her public after breaking up Marc’s marriage. I can’t say its working..

Brittany on


Cheri on

The dress is ugly. It doesn’t flatter either woman!

peach on

well, I would have to say that I like Jeniffer Lopez in it better. I goes good with her skin tone and the dress is gorgeous period!

vida on

The dress is funky and so is JLo

Evelyn on

Jennifer Lopez. The other woman looks pasty and chunky.

jen olson on

Jen is so much sexier than any other star!!Go jennifer lynn lopez

WB on

Ewww, I think it’s an ugly dress all around, however, Jenn does look better. Even in an UGLY dress.


Jennifer looks better there’s no dought about it.


Jennifer looks better there’s no dought about it.

MARIE odabas on

i would have to say none
but im sorry but those dresses are
really ugly

stephanie on

Breaking up Marc’s marriage!? (rolls eyes) Please, he did that on his own long before Jennifer and Ben broke up. Maybe she’s looking more mature b/c she HAS gotten more mature these days. Some people do actually grow up, get older, and don’t feel like parading around in skimpy dresses anymore..even though they sure as hell can pull it off. Give it a rest, Jen looks great. I don’t even know who that other girl in the pic is. It’s useless to pair someone against Jennifer in a style faceoff. Lopez always wins.

Elissa on

Jennifer looks much much better! She looks stunning as usual!

Ulku on

The dress looks definitely better on Jennifer but the reason it looks so bad on Julliete is that this is not her style at all, and the hair looks awful (both colr and style).

Denise* on

they both look awsome!

Ann on

JLo!! No Doubt No Question..

CMH on

Both look good and managed to pick the version/color that matches them best. Imagine if we, mortals, had to worry about others wearing the same clothes we wear…

Jen Stone on

Neither one of them looks good in the dress. The dress itself is not flattering.

Lisa on

They both do the dress justice. Although what is up with Juliette Binoche’s hair? Ew….

Stephanie on

Jennifer for sure!

Stephanie on

Jen looks better, but she’s also prettier which makes the dress look better. I also think that her dress isn’t as loud as the other. As an overall, I don’t care for either of the dress personally, but Jen wins it hands down!

connie on

Who is the other person? I’ve never even heard of her at all.

renee on

jennifer does look better of course, but still that dress dosent do a thing for her..Yuck yuck..

Eugenie on

Jen defnitly looks better. In fact, the whole package is good. The shoes, earring, everything. I don’t even know the other girl, but she doesn’t look very flattering at all and waht’s with her hair. So not cool.

madelyn on

Jennifer looks the best, just beautiful. I like the style of the dress, and the color she wore went beautifully with her glowing skin, hair, shoes, everything. The color worn by the other actress didn’t do much for her new hair color or complexion.

A blogger’s comment about “barely recognizing” Lopez etc. was truly disingenuous, to the point of being laughable. She and Ben were still a couple in Oct. 2004, when Marc Anthony and his ex-wife separated for the second time. He and Jennifer are very compatible; they make a great couple. Their detractors were wrong about them two and one-half years ago, and their union has only grown closer.

madelyn on

Correction: it was in 2003 (October) that Marc Anthony and his ex-wife separated again.

Shelly on

JLO of Course!

michelle on

jennifer looks better, however she is one of the most beautiful woman in hollywood, so why wouldnt she?

majo on

ya’ll need to stop hatin on my girl Jlo ya may think she’s a hoe i think she’s a hero. Go Jlo you look great in that dress

Liz on

JLO rox that dress all the way. It looks awesome on them noth but JLO gives it more…..Flare!

Rana on

i think JLO wear it best ,it looks really nice on u jen

Natalie on

Jennifer Lopez wears this dress beautifully. I choose her, hands down. Juliet Binoche needs to tone down on the blonde, and that curly bob just doesn’t look well, it’s too poofy in the back. Jennifer did everything right. Jennifer has great style. She knows her fashion. She’s the woman who MADE the Versace green dress. She’s grown older, has gotten maturer, and she glows more than ever. I admire her ability to DO anything she sets her mind to. And look at her body. With all the magazines showing off the skinny women, look at Jennifer Lopez. She shows sex appeal, class, great attitude and a beautiful healthy body.

sally on

I love jennifer since…I love her personality and she has a nice figure.anything will do she look stunning…go for it jen…

Masy on

Juliette Binoche is a beautiful woman, but I hardly recognize her with the blonde hair and the dress is not at all flattering. I’d have to say that Jennifer Lopez wears it better, but it’s not a great look.

samantha on

Definitely J-lo.
The shoes and accessories balance the heaviness of the dress and tie it all together.

Lisa on

I think that dress is very unflattering.

Vanessa on

La Lopez looks so hot!!!
