Fashion Faceoff: Hayden Panettiere Vs. Eva Longoria

05/07/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Stars can’t get enough of Alice & Olivia’s sequin minis. First Sarah Jessica and Emma Roberts faced-off in the black and navy striped version. Then Paris Hilton and Serena Williams both wore the sheath in a shimmering solid. And most recently, Eva Longoria and Hayden Panettiere were both spotted in the summery yellow and white sparkler. To be fair, Hayden was first to don the dress on April 24th at The Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences. Eva followed two weeks later at the 2nd Anniversary of the Pussycat Dolls Lounge in Vegas. If you want to face off with Eva and Hayden, you can scoop up your own mini at NeimanMarcus.com for $396. Tell us: Who wore it better, the Desperate Housewife or Heroes young star?

They both look pretty in the dress! I’d pick Eva for looking the best, except her legs look odd in this picture. I think it must be the light and camera angle.

Carrie on

I think Hayden looks better in the dress. The light colors go better with her blonde hair and lighter skin tone. In my opinion, Eva’s shoes big earrings and layered bangles are too much while paired with the dress. Hayden’s simpler shoes go more with the dress.

kaye on

I like Eva’s style most of the time but on this one he is wearing high heels that look stripes too. Not really a good combination.

Hayden wore this well with her peep toe heels. Looks really cute and classy for her!

lexi on

well i think the dress is a better fit on eva, but hayden’s shoes are cuter.

xyz on

hayden is nothing special…she acts on a tv show? so what? she did disney movies before that…eva longoria does desperate housewives…so?

lexi on

i’m confused—what point are you trying to make, xyz? that there shouldn’t be a post about them?

random.comment on

I think Hayden looks better in this dress. Eva is overpowered by accessories(sp?).

The first thing I thought when I saw this picture was, aren’t they like 20 years apart and wearing the same dress. I dunno why.

Kelsey on

Aww. Hayden looked better ! =]

JENNIFER on

Eva wears it better, but Hayden looks very nice.

Deepti on

I LIKE EVA’S HAIR, BUT HAYDEN LOOKS BETTER OVER ALL.

SHE SHOULD HAVE CHOSEN A DIFFERENT COLOR PURSE TO MIX IT UP. PROBABLY A CLUTCH, AND BLUE ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN CUTE.

Rebecca on

This one is just about a tie, but I don’t care for Eva’s shoes, so I’ll vote for Hayden.

caroline on

I think Hayden wore it best. I love the bag and the shoes are nice!

Paula on

i love hayden’s bag! anyone know the designer and name of it?

JasPam on

Eva definitely! She glams up the outfit while Hayden looks pudgy in it.

Terra on

Hayden…….. I think Eva should start dressing her age, another “Mariah”. Eva tries too hard……..

Leigh on

I like the dress on both, but I like Hayden’s shoes better.

Did anyone see the episode where Hayden got PUNKED? She has an attitude!! She is way too stuck on herself to be so young. If she keeps going at that rate, shes likely going to be the biggest diva in Hollywood.

Kate on

Yep, I don’t like Eva’s shoes either so Hayden. I also think that Eva is somehow a bit too much. Oh, and Hayden’s bag is too big in my opinion. Smaller bag or this one on the shoulder would have looked better.

j on

hayden because of the bad shoe & accessory choice from eva.

dawn on

I love eva’s shoes do they come in black i wonder.

Jennifer on

I think the colors of the dress look better on eva’s skin tone but I think Hayden wears it better because of her shoes.

Katy on

I think that Hayden looks better, because her coloring suits the dress more than Eva’s.

Elda on

they both look nice but i have to go with hayden, i think the dress looks better on her.

O'Wryly on

No contest whatsoever here … Hayden looks the best by far. The annoyingly ubiquitous Eva needs to shuffle off the stage and give us all a break. She’s far too over hyped and boring.

Alice on

xyz writes lame comments. Nothing special. So what?

I like how Hayden looks in the dress.

Kathleen on

I think they both look great, but I’d chose Hayden because it just seems fresher on her. Also, I like the way she accessorized and it looks summery and fresh, unlike like a club dress on Eva. No offense though- I LOVE them both.

glad on

i like hayden looks…i dont like the shoes on eva…even though the dress look more fitted on her…but when it comes to accessories hayden wins

Summy on

I love Hayden’s show so I’m going to pick her! I don’t really like the dress. I don’t like Eva’s shoes at all!

Jay Bailey on

Honestly I’m not really feeling the dress on either of them, they are both beautiful women, and I think the dress makes them look shapeless. The dress is very young, so I think that Hayden wears it best, and also because her blonde hair really makes the dress shine. But yea..ditch the dress it’s bad.

Maryse on

I love Eva, but I’m going with Hayden on this one. The dress looks great against Hayden’s complexion and blonde hair, very beautiful. I like how Hayden also down played the accessory department. While the bag may be a little too big and clunky looking, I think it goes well and the peep toe shoes on Hayden look much more better with the dress then Eva’s strap shoes. While I love Eva, she did some overkill with the bracelets, and the shoes are awful. The dress fits her nicely, but it looks much better on Hayden.

Meg on

Eva definitly wore this dress better. The reason is the stripes make hayden appear ten times bigger than her cute frame is.

Happy on

I love that dress! It looks totally awesome on both, but Hayden works it better.

Quinci on

I think the dress looks better on Hayden. It goes well with her blonde hair and lighter skin tone. :]

Quinci on

Alison on

They both look great, but Hayden’s hair is too close to the shade of yellow. So I’d pick Eva.

Crystal Beach girl on

They both look great. As for the price, did they use gold for the stitching???

jap on

personally they look ok. but i think hayden looks better since it’s a more youthful-looking dress. so it’s more age appropriate. plus, they’re both short, so the length is fine.

a.j. on

EVA LONGORIA ALL THE WAY…HAYDEN DOES LOOK ALRIGHT THO.

EVA LONGORIA ALL THE WAY…HAYDEN DOES LOOK ALRIGHT THO.

Klynn on

I think this dress looks Good on both of the young ladies. The dress itself is not very attractive.

Just want all of you young ignorant ladies out there that are hating on Eva to know she is only 31 and very real and attractive. I do not think any of you have any room to talk about anyone until I hear one of you are smart, successful, and marrying a FAMOUS baskestball player like she is.

Get a LIFE! And stop Hating on Everyone elses!!!!

Diva on

Eva!!! Eva rocked this dress, (as she does with everything else)! Way to go! The hair looks a lot better on Eva and her shoes are much cuter. Hayden made the dress look nice as well. But her hair is way too simple and she needs to take of that ponytail and replace it with Eva’s amazing stacked bangles. Both of the shoes look alright, but Eva’s are more sophisticated! Also, Hayden could’ve made her dress look better if she put on some jewlery! She’s too plain Jane!

sara on

I think that they both look good. but if i had to pic the best i think it would be Hayden. but Eva still looks good but its a little better in Hayden

Angie077 on

Hayden is always much prettier then Eva, but in these pictures, Hayden looks a little bit shapeless. Eva wins my vote!

Bethany on

I think that considering what she had to work with, (the shapeless monstrosity of a dress that is), that Hayden looks beautiful. She looks sincerely happy. On the other hand Eva looks kind of blah…yellow is definately not her color, and the amount of bracelets she has on is rediculous. She looks as if she’s not happy wearing the dress either.

RR on

They both look cute, but Eva wears it better because of the contrast with the dark hair. The dark hair makes this dress pop!!

RISH on

UMM, I THINK THAT IS A BRACELET. ALSO, THO EVA IS 31 SHE LOOKS SILLY IN THIS DRESS BECAUSE OF HER SKIN TONE AND UGLY ASS SHOES. IT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING FROM THE 90′S ON HER BECAUSE HER DARK SKIN MAKES IT LOOK FLORESCENT. ALSO HAYDEN DOES A GOOD JOB DRESSING DOWN THE SPARKLY DRESS TO MAKE IT WEARABLE AS A SUNDRESS. AS FOR ITS “SHAPELESSNESS” I THINK THAT IS THE STYLE OF THE DRESS AND I THINK EVA MAKES A POINT OF GETTING EVERYTHING FITTED WHICH RUINS THE STYLE OF THIS DRESS. DID I MENTION HER SHOES ARE NASTY?? CUZ THEY ARE….

Rachel on

It looks great on both of them. I call the look ” summer chic. “

sophie on

I think that hayden looks amazing wearing ALL of her clothe. i really love her style!

jess on

eva looks lovely but HAYDEN wins her beautiful hair and gorgeous white bag and simple white shoes are really beautiful x
