March Fabness 2012, Round 1: Versace Bracket

The polls on Round 1 have closed, but check back soon for Round 2!


ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: dress by Emilio Pucci, shoes by Christian Louboutin // KERRY WASHINGTON: dress by Prabal Gurung
Every star worth her weight in sequins needs a long-sleeved, high-necked beaded cocktail dress. Do you dig Rosie’s side-slitted Pucci, or Kerry’s flapper-esque Prabal Gurung?

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: gown by Burberry, shoes by Christian Louboutin // KERRY WASHINGTON: dress by Donna Karan, shoes by Christian Louboutin
The stars do battle in their favorite white dresses, with Ms. Huntington-Whiteley in a high-slitted Burberry gown with a plunging neckline, and Ms. Washington going funky and fabulous in striped and full-skirted Donna Karan.

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: gown by Antonio Berardi // KERRY WASHINGTON: dress by Marc Jacobs
What’s your dress-up style, dear readers? Are you all about sex appeal in a metallic red body-conscious gown, or do you go for a chic and trendy peplum-skirted printed dress?

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: gown by Naeem Khan // KERRY WASHINGTON: gown by Catherine Malandrino
Rosie is camera-ready in her floor-length silver sequined Naeem Khan gown, but can it beat Kerry in her watercolor-esque Malandrino confection?

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: gown by Gucci // KERRY WASHINGTON: gown by Michael Kors, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Both ladies have a yellow moment, as Rosie serves up stick-straight hair and mega-fierceness in her sheer-skirted, one-shouldered Gucci gown. Does it trump Kerry’s lemon-lime Michael Kors high-slitted halter gown?

Only you can decide, dear readers.


HEIDI KLUM: dress by Versace, shoes by Christian Louboutin // ASHLEY TISDALE: dress by Tibi, shoes by Vince Camuto
The stars show off their killer stems in some fabulous fashion, with supermodel Heidi in yellow Versace and actress Ashley in floral Tibi. Which is more your style?

HEIDI KLUM: dress by Giles Deacon, shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood // ASHLEY TISDALE: dress by AllSaints, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Ms. Klum displays her love of cut-outs in a gorgeous silver Giles creation, as Ms. Tisdale gets fabulous in a printed AllSaints tunic.

HEIDI KLUM: gown by Roberto Cavalli // ASHLEY TISDALE: dress by 6 Shore Road
What’s your version of playing dress-up, dear readers? Do you cover up but keep the drama in an embellished black gown? Or do you keep those legs looking fabulous in a minidress and stunning T-strap plaforms?

HEIDI KLUM: gown by Calvin Klein // ASHLEY TISDALE: dress by Farah Angsana
Both ladies pump up the volume, which for Heidi means a minimalist nude gown with turquoise jewelry. For Ashey, it’s an on-trend LWD with a ruffled skirt and silver accessories.

HEIDI KLUM: gown by Roberto Cavalli // ASHLEY TISDALE: gown by Maria Lucia Hohan
Do you love the delicate beading and frayed ruffles on Heidi’s stunning white Roberto Cavalli gown? Or do you dig Ashley’s sexy red asymmetrical gown by Maria Lucia Hohan?

It’s all up to you, so who will you choose?


EMMA ROBERTS: dress by Chanel // RACHEL ZOE: top and skirt by Marc Jacobs
Where better to start a fashion battle than at a fashion show? Emma dons a classic deconstructed Chanel dress and stunning accessories for her turn at fashion week, while Rachel hits the industry events in a beautiful Marc Jacobs blouse and skirt combo.

EMMA ROBERTS: dress by Elie Saab // RACHEL ZOE: dress by Chanel, shoes by Christian Louboutin
What’s your LBD of choice? A sleeveless look with a lacy bodice and thick-strapped matching shoes? Or a caped gown with a metric ton of fabulous necklaces and perfect Louboutin pumps?

EMMA ROBERTS: dress by Temperley London // RACHEL ZOE: jumpsuit by Yves Saint Laurent
The ladies get a little whimsical, with Emma staying sweet in embellished Temperley London, and Rachel going for drama in an eggplant sequined jumpsuit with long sleeves.

EMMA ROBERTS: gown by Michael Kors // RACHEL ZOE: gown by Rachel Zoe, purse by Givenchy
White gowns with black accents always make a statement, but which statement do you prefer? The sexiness of Emma’s trendy side cut-out gown? Or the laid-back chicness of Rachel’s flowing long-sleeved gown?

EMMA ROBERTS: gown by Zac Posen // RACHEL ZOE: gown by Valentino
The stars don their fanciest digs to do battle, with Emma giving us a truly exquisite blue Zac Posen gown, with stunning detailing and cut-outs. Rachel mixes prints like a master in a gorgeous Valentino gown that somehow incorporates lace, polka dots, and florals while still looking elegant as hell.

So? What’s the verdict?


OLIVIA WILDE: dress by Vivienne Westwood // EVA LONGORIA: dress by Victoria Beckham
The fight begins innocently enough, with the ladies looking prim and proper in florals and pinks. Are you loving the plunging neckline and lovely layers on Olivia’s Vivienne Wetswood dress? Or do you love the stark minimalism of Eva’s pink Victoria Beckham shift?

OLIVIA WILDE: dress by Yigal Azrouel // EVA LONGORIA: dress by Victoria Beckham
These ladies love a two-tone dress with pumps to match! Ms. Wilde offers up a black-and-white belted look by Yigal Azrouel, while Ms. Longoria pairs her beloved Victoria Beckham dress with stunning purple pumps.

OLIVIA WILDE: dress by J. Mendel, shoes by Brian Atwood // EVA LONGORIA: gown by J. Mendel, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo
As the ladies go more formal, which way do you sway? Do you love the deconstructed qualities of Olivia’s high-slitted column gown – and the pop of fuchshia? Or are you prone to a classic, romantic gown in pinkish ivory?

OLIVIA WILDE: gown by Gucci, purse by Rene Caovilla // EVA LONGORIA: gown by J. Mendel
Both girls give us plenty of cleavage, a bright color, and a whopping dose of sex appeal. Does the red Gucci gown with its demure long sleeves call to you more than the draped J. Mendel confection in fuchsia?

OLIVIA WILDE: gown by Gucci, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo // EVA LONGORIA: gown by Oscar de la Renta
The stars pull out all the stops for the big-time events, with Olivia in a classic black gown with a stunning belt that’s anything but simple. And Eva turns every head in the room in her asymmetrical salmon mermaid gown.

Who will it be, dear readers?
