Fashion Faceoff: Mandy vs. Halle!

10/29/2007 at 05:00 PM ET


We can’t say enough how amazing Halle Berry looks pregnant — although we imagine we’ve got a few more oohs and ahs before she’s due. So, it’s no surprise that the hot momma-to-be is still wearing non-maternity wear, but only Halle could pull off a legendary Dolce & Gabbana corset dress in her second trimester! But we’ve seen this particular slinky number before, on the decidedly sveltve figure of Mandy Moore. While it’s not exactly fair to compare those who are and are not expecting a child, we still get a giggle out of seeing the two stars in the same dress. Tell us: Who wears her Dolce & Gabbana dress better? Do you like that Halle is wearing sexy clothes during her pregnancy?

i think that halle looks much better than mandy, but if mandy didnt do her hair or her lipstick that way then both would have looked stunning in that gorgeous dress. love them both!

Heather on

I’m not a fan of Mandy’s makeup in this particular picture and I think Halle fills out the dress better.(well obviously)
Halle looks great in every picture I see of her.
But I do love Mandy as well..Halle wins this one though.

Dorothy on

Halle is soooo sexy even pregnant, to me she is definitely sexier then Mandy. If you can look that hot pregnant why not show it off!

Dani on

The dress looks fine on both of them, however Halle looks better overall. I don’t like Mandy’s hair or makeup in that picture. And what’s wrong with comparing two women, one of which is pregnant? Halle still came out on top in my book.

Teri on

I like Mandy moore better. I think that kind of corset dress is not appropiate for pregnant women, including Halle Berry. Not that Halle doesn’t look good. She looks great. But it’s just not the right time for her to wear a corset dress.

Eleanor on

Both of them look great! Although, I think Mandy overdid it with the hair and makeup. So, I like Halle’s look better, and she is looking better than ever while she’s pregnant!

fashionexpert on

I think it looks good on Halle with her little baby bump!!!!!!!!!!

Selena on

OMGGGGGGGG Halle Berry looks amazing pregnant! OMG
What is her secret? Does she excerise, eat right, what is it? She looks positively radiant! Mandy Moore is a natural beauty also but the lipstick choice is pretty bold. A Dolce and Gabbana dress doesn’t need very much makeup. Also she needs to smile, this is not a great picture of her, don’t you have one where she’s smiling at this same event. PEOPLE sometimes you make it a little too easy for us to choose when you put a good picture and a not so great picture side by side.

I think Halle looks Absolutely Gorgeous!!
Go Girl!

Jenn on


Vicky on

she lock pretty

(LOVE- J ) on

I can’t Judge because Halle is pregnant.

People magazine, you’re posting a pic of Angie I can’t see if she’s pregnant or not.
At just most people say she’s pregnant I like to know is true or not.

Halle blows Mandy out of the water, bun in the oven and all.

Yazmin on

Love Halle!!!! She can do no wrong.

Julie on

They both look beautiful. I agree re: Mandy Moore’s makeup — don’t like the lipstick. But she’s always beautiful. They both rock the dress in different ways.

Axelle...Team Halle..Quebecoise All The Way!!! on

Oh..wholly cow..Halle all the way…. Pregnant or not she is georgous, she rocks!!! She is so beautiul and glowing…Bonne Chance!!!

Cheryl on

Hallie! looks better…Mandy looks like a vampire.

Kim on

Halle looks amazing. She definitely looks more comfortable and confident than Mandy Moore. Honestly, I think Mandy Moore looks like she’s sucking in her gut. Her neck has disappeared and her chest is a bit puffed out. And her lips are definitely over-done. The hair is too perfect. And, it wouldn’t have hurt if Mandy had smiled. She’s very pretty. This picture does her no justice. Simply put, Halle wins this hands down.

Allie on

both look amazing!
but… i like more halle berry ..than mandy moore

Vonnie on

Halle looks FABULOUS….Mandy looks like a dominatrix…nothting wrong with doms

Madelyn on

Both women look great in the dress. My choice is Halle though. I love her hair and make-up. I really adore her jacket as well. She looks so radiant and beautiful. While Mandy looks great in the dress, I think the hair style she did really maximizes the height of her head, she should of added some side-swept bangs. Also the lipstick is too bold for her. She should have went the natural route. Mandy would also look better with some caramel or honey blonde highlights, just to lighten her hair up a bit.

NoFashionSense on

Halle has a great stylist. I would not credit her with pairing the corset dress with belt and longer sweater. She looks stunning. Mandy on the other hand—not such a great stylist. Who would allow her to have puffy hair and nasty lips?

Kim on

Halle looks amazing, and more power to her! I think she’s been looking very hot AND classy lately.

Cristi on

Halle’s name is written all over the dress. I haven’t seen one bad picture of Halle , and Mandy’s makeup doesnt look that great on her.

alia on


She’s definately rocking this dress…even at 4 months pregnant!
she’s gorgeous.

Mandy’s cute, but I’m not loving this gothic look of her’s….less is more for Mandy :)

Kate on

Halle Berry looks amazing! She is in great shape. Many usually looks cute and this look does not suit her.



Kate on

I don’t like Halle so much but she wins this one. Mandy looks like vampira or something. A bit scary anyways. You should keep your hair and make up more neutral with that kind of dress.

Elda on

I mean they both look nice but i have to go with Halle, she is just a living doll!!

Anna on

Halle looks fantastic – and pregnancy is definitely the one time a female celeb can have a bulging belly on display in a fitted dress and not be critized by the media or called fat! kudos to her for sticking with her style.

The pseudo goth chick look does not work for Mandy – she’s so naturally pretty!

Milly on

Mandy would look so much better if she didnt have that goth makeup on…Thats why Halle wins..
She looks great even pregnant…If mandy didnt do her makeup like would have been a tied in my opinion

Horse Girl on

They are both beautiful women, but Halle pulls out ahead in this one. I hope I look that good if I ever get pregnant. Moore’s lipstick doesn’t suit her complexion or this dress.

Melissa on

I have to go with Halle.

Genie on

halle…at least she doesn’t look like dracula!!

Sarah on

Doesn’t anyone else think this dress is a little inappropriate for Halle? I think there’s something to be said for more modesty when pregnant. PEOPLE had another picture of her posted from the side and it looked like her chest was coming out all over the place. Too risque!

Samantha on

I think Mandy would have looked ten times better if she wouldn’t have darkened her hair or her lips.

msmick on

Why oh why do all these pregnant stars think they have to show off their big boobs!! Show some class ladies, you can look sexy and classy being pregnant without showing 9/10th of your boobs!!

Lorna on

I would have to say Halle wins this one. Mandy overdoes it with a poofy hair style and dark lips and the color of her shoes looks a bit off, giving her an almost ‘unbalanced’ look, but Halle adds a touch of elegence with a simple black sweater and natural tones of makeup.

Nadia on

im not a fan of mandy’s make up but the dress fits her well ;
and that dress does not look good on “pregnant halle”. :)

Rachel on

I think it looks prettier on Halle, she looks soooooooooo gorgeous as usual.

Victoria on

I think that they both wore it well, but i think i like the glammer of Mandys look

Jordan on

wasn’t mandy hot at one time

Lulu on

Ok so I definitly think that Halle looks much better, Mandy just looks fake and the lipstick is horrible. Halles looks very natural and is glowing. But I still love them both!!


I think from the neck down Mandy looks better in this dress, but whole picture Halle takes it. Mandy definetly over did the hair and makeup she looks like Elvira in this picture.

Давыд on

А это Вы написали на основе исключительно Вашего личного опыта?

Михаил Кузьмин on

Красота — это своего рода гениальность, даже больше, чем гениальность, ибо в объяснении не нуждается.
