Fashion Faceoff: Oprah vs. Miss Universe!

With all of Oprah Winfrey‘s wealth and connections, you might think she would be exempt from Fashion Faceoffs — but not so apparently! The media mogul picked a hot-off-the-runway Gucci gown to wear to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party back in February, which just reappeared this weekend on the newly crowned Miss Universe, Riyo Mori of Japan. Don’t let the sash distract you — we want to know who really rocks the dress! Tell us: Who wears their Gucci gown better: Miss Universe or Oprah?

Oprah for sure. It fits her curves so nicely. Ms. Universe is too skinny the dress just doesn’t look right on her. Oprah fills it out in all the right places and looks so classy doing it.

I don’t know where the flat-chested comments are coming from – the bikini competition pictures looked all right to me. Plus – exactly how do people tell, anyway, what with the sash across her chest?

With a busy/loud party gown like this, you need to be on the less-curvy side in order to to balance it out in terms of personality. Not to say Miss. Universe is flat at all.


I love Oprah but I think Mrs.Universe looks better in this dress plus her tall and slim figure makes it look better on her Oprah looks grea too but if I had to pick it would def. be miss.Universe.

I think Oprah looks better in this particular dress….but I honestly don’t like this dress–it’s a little strange– anyways, Miss Universe is very pretty, but I was hoping for miss America to win (as we all know, she completely screwed it up w/ her fall — which I know we all felt for her..)…so I’m happy for Miss Japan…and Oprah:)

It has to be a bunch of jealous fat pigs calling this woman “too skinny”. She is thin, healthy people are, but she isn’t sick looking. And FYI, being overweight is no more attractive than being underweight. Stop trying to convince yourselves that blubber=curves. Don’t be delusional.

oprah wore the dress alot better she is not straight up and down she has the curves in just the right proportion for that specific dress and the color looks way better on oprah also her posture shows more attitude and confidence

i think it’s irresponible for you to call miss universe “anorexic.” have you ever seen or been around a truly anorexic person?? well let me tell you what a person who is truly sick and suffering from that disease looks like: their face is gaunt and sunken in, their hair is brittle and dull, their complexion is dull, their bones are visible or they stick out, and they may have bruises since anorexic people are usually anemic and bruise easily. have you seen pictures of karen carpenter, or donatella versace’s daughter? it is true that some anorexic people are harder to detect from just looking at them, but since you don’t know miss universe personally, how can you say that? that’s just really hurtful and sad. why do people immediatley jump to the conclusion that someone is anorexic just becasue they are thin? i’m glad that people have become more sensitive to overweight people, but that doesn’t mean we should bash thin people. if they post a picture of someone overweight, do you see people writing, “oh look at her! she looks like her arteries are clogged and is on the verge of a heart attack! i bet she has diabetes and hypertension! she wouold be a great candidate for lipo or gastric-bypass!” no you don’t. while i realize you are entitled to your opinion as am i, i just think it’s inappropriate to assume a disease with someone’s body type.

Oprah rocks it and fills it! Ms. Universe looks like the dress is wearing her…poor thing!
