Most Wanted/Flynet; Cliff/ Malia Sobel/Splash News online

Nicole Richie‘s Madison Marcus tunic was a big hit with People.com readers — and apparently with Halle Berry too! The Oscar winner stepped out for a grocery shopping in her chic black silk dress over Memorial Day weekend, while the petite Simple Life star wore hers to a salon appointment last month. We usually don’t think of Nicole and Halle having similar style, but this easy tunic looks terrific on both of them! Tell us: Who do you think wears the dress better? Nicole Richie or Halle Berry?

It’s absolutely a matter of proportion. The neckline cuts across Halle’s shoulders wrong and she looks very beefy like this. And the dress length makes her legs stumpy (which usually look great when she rocks miniskirts) – her flops are making things even worse. She would have benefited from heels, but not much more. This is simply wrong for her.

I have this same top. I’m hourglass-curvy like Halle but very small-boned more like Nicole, and this is the only tent-style top I own because it actually looks all right on me.

I’d definitely wear it like Nicole except that I’d make sure my shorts are long enough to be ‘obviously there’. Blousen tops are very flattering on her because you don’t notice the boniness, rather your eyes are drawn to the legs, definitely the right feature for her.

nicole looks hoter in that dress, even though halle is generally hoter than nicole. but i prefered it when nicole was a bit skinier…I think she puted on weight at the anorexic rehab…people should never go there!!!!

Chlo: Anorexia is a disease that can be fatal! Nicole looks great the way she is; I can’t believe you’re saying she should be skinnier. Oh yeah, and what do you think the PURPOSE of “anorexic rehab” is?! Hello, one of the major objectives there is for people to gradually regain weight (*gasp*) so they don’t die!!!!! Sounds like you might eventually be checking into one of them with an attitude like that!

Real good and funny post! phx…

ashley. on

Definately Nicole.
The black dress looks better with her light skin tone and she totally pulled off the short length.

Jenna on

Nicole, it looks better on her. but at first i was like omg put some pants on but i saw she paired it up with cute shorts! other wise she couldnt bend without her butt showing…but then again maybe thats what she wants….you know it is Nicole Richie…

Heather on

Nadine on

Definately Halle, she is rocking it. Nicole is too skinny, it doesn’t look as well on her as it is on Halle…

Amanda on
