FAN BINGBING vs. KATHARINE MCPHEE

Fan’s dress, purse, and shoes by Versace; Katharine’s dress by Peter Pilotto, purse by R&Y Augostini, shoes by Charlotte Olympia

Fan: Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m happy we’re starting off this battle in bright colors. Say, aren’t you that girl from Smash?

Katharine: Yes! And aren’t you like, the most famous superstar actress/fashion icon in China?

Fan's jacket by Balmain, gown by Tadashi Shoji; Katharine's dress by Theyskens' Theory

Fan: Oh, you flatter me, darling. Tell me, though – has Debra Messing finally stopped wearing those hideous scarfs? I have to admit, I kind of lost interest in the show after it jumped the shark with that Bollywood number.

Katharine: Well, I can hardly blame you for that. And I think we can all agree those scarves were an affront to fashion.

Fan's gown by Valentino, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo; Katharine's dress by Dolce & Gabbana, shoes by Charlotte Olympia

Fan’s gown by Valentino, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo; Katharine’s dress by Dolce & Gabbana, shoes by Charlotte Olympia

Fan: Agreed. And I must say, for an amateur, your attempt at red carpet florals is quite nice.

Katharine: Amateur? How dare you. I’ve watched Anjelica Huston throw drinks in people’s faces literally thousands of times, on and off screen. If that doesn’t make me a pro, nothing does.

Fan's gown by Elie Saab, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo; Katharine's gown by Elie Saab

Fan and Katharine’s gowns by Elie Saab; Fan’s purse by Salvatore Ferragamo

Fan: That’s an excellent point. And I’ll admit, you’re more than capable of competing with me in the sparkly low-cut Elie Saab gown department.

Katharine: To be fair, it’s hard to look bad in gowns as beautiful as these.

Fan's gown by Elie Saab, purse by Roger Vivier; Katharine's gown by Theyskens' Theory, purse by Oroton

Fan: Too true, Katharine. Unless you accessorize with one of Debra’s scarves.

Katharine: But of course. Those scarves were the biggest hot disaster on that show, save for Ellis.

LILY COLLINS vs. ISABELLE FUHRMAN
Lily's dress by Balmain, shoes by Casadei; Isabelle's top and shorts by Jason Wu, purse by Kotur, shoes by Casadei

Lily’s dress by Balmain, shoes by Casadei; Isabelle’s top and shorts by Jason Wu, purse by Kotur, shoes by Casadei

Lily: I must say, I’m a little intimidated to be battling with a knife-throwing Hunger Games tribute, even if you are like seven years younger than me.

Isabelle: I take that as a compliment! Of course, I try not to throw knives on the red carpet, but sometimes accidents happen, you know?

Lily's dress and shoes by Alexander McQueen; Isabelle's dress by Prabal Gurung for Target, shoes by Versus

Lily: Um, I guess? I mean, I was in that Snow White movie, so, I didn’t really get to do a lot of bloody murdering on set.

Isabelle: Really? I sure would’ve stabbed something if I had to work with Kristen Stewart.

Lily's gown by Peter Som; Isabelle's jacket, top, and shorts by Prabal Gurung

Lily’s gown by Peter Som; Isabelle’s jacket, top, and shorts by Prabal Gurung

Lily: Well, that’s for sure. But luckily, I was in the other Snow White movie that came out this year. Don’t worry – you’re a porcelain-skinned brunette. You’ll get your own Snow White movie in five years too.

Isabelle: From your lips to Harvey Weinstein’s ears, honey.

Lily's gown by Zac Posen; Isabelle's dress by Valentino, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti

Lily’s gown by Zac Posen; Isabelle’s dress by Valentino, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti

Lily: Actually, come to think of it, we could play sisters in something! We have similar coloring and beautiful eyebrows and fabulous style, so why not?

Isabelle: Wow, that’s actually a great idea! And to think, I had a knife hidden in my purse this whole time just in case things didn’t go well!

Lily's gown by Zuhair Murad; Isabelle's dress by Prabal Gurung

Lily: So, are you like, method acting, or just batshit insane?

Isabelle: Oh, I’m just fucking with you, Snow White. Relax.

AMY ADAMS vs. FREIDA PINTO

Amy's gown by Roksanda Ilincic, purse by Fred Leighton, shoes by Casadei; Freida's suit and shoes by Gucci, purse by Fendi

Amy’s gown by Roksanda Ilincic, purse by Fred Leighton, shoes by Casadei; Freida’s suit and shoes by Gucci, purse by Fendi

Amy: Howdy, Freida! I hope you’re ready for a battle, because I might be doe-eyed and ginger-haired, but I’m here to fight.

Freida: Oh, no, not me. I plan on beating you without lifting so much as a finger, you see.

Amy's gown by Jenny Packham; Freida's gown by Alexander McQueen

Amy’s gown by Jenny Packham; Freida’s gown by Alexander McQueen

Amy: Oh, that’s how you want to play it? And you’re stealing my idea of wearing a metallic printed evening gown to battle, too?

Freida: Like you could possibly even dream of pulling off a bare midriff like this. Bitch, please.

Amy's gown by Elie Saab, shoes by Casadei; Freida's gown by James Ferreira, purse by Judith Leiber

Amy’s gown by Elie Saab, shoes by Casadei; Freida’s gown by James Ferreira, purse by Judith Leiber

Amy: Oh, yeah? This slit is so high I had to get my vagina removed in order to wear it. BEAT THAT.

Freida: … well, that just seems ridiculous.

Amy's gown Giambattista Valli; Freida's gown by Ralph Lauren, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo, shoes by Charlotte Olympia

Amy’s gown Giambattista Valli; Freida’s gown by Ralph Lauren, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo

Amy: We all make sacrifices for fashion, my dear. But I must say, if I had to wear a different one-shouldered ruched-bodice metallic-accented gown than the one I’m already wearing, yours would be my pick.

Freida: Mine too.

Amy's gown by Oscar de la Renta; Freida's gown by Atelier Versace, purse and shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo

Amy’s gown by Oscar de la Renta; Freida’s gown by Atelier Versace, purse and shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo

Amy: Well, if you’re going to be such a brat about it, fine. See if you can defeat my Lady-Mary-goes-to-Hollywood gown, Freida.

Freida: In my futuristic couture, I’m sure it’ll be no problem.

HAILEE STEINFELD vs. JADA PINKETT SMITH
Hailee's top and shorts by Prabal Gurung; Jada's dress by Versace, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Hailee’s top and shorts by Prabal Gurung; Jada’s dress by Versace, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Hailee: Oh my gosh, hi, Jada! Love your dress. And your shoes. And like, your whole entire adorable family.

Jada: Well thanks, you little cutie! I must say, those shorts are mighty fabulous.

Hailee's romper and purse by Louis Vuitton; Jada's dress by Versace, shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo

Hailee: Oh, stop it! I wasn’t sure about them, but my stylist kept saying, “You’re only sixteen once, bitch!” so I figured I’d wear them just to shut him up.

Jada: Don’t believe it for a minute, Hailee. Follow my lead, and you’ll never look a day over 25. You’ve got a least another three years of being sixteen ahead of you.

Hailee's dress by Erin by Erin Fetherston, purse by Edie Parker; Jada's dress by Lanvin, shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood

Hailee’s dress by Erin by Erin Fetherston, purse by Edie Parker; Jada’s dress by Lanvin, shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood

Hailee: I don’t really understand how that works, but thanks, I guess!

Jada: You’ll get it after your first round of Botox, sweetie.

Hailee's dress, purse, and shoes by Marc Jacobs; Jada's gown by Emilio Pucci

Hailee’s dress, purse, and shoes by Marc Jacobs; Jada’s gown by Emilio Pucci

Hailee: Oh, okay, it’s like an old lady reference and that’s why I don’t get it?

Jada: Watch your mouth, kid.

Hailee's gown by Miu Miu; Jada's gown by Atelier Versace, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Hailee’s gown by Miu Miu; Jada’s gown by Atelier Versace, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Hailee: Hey, this is a BATTLE, lady, and I’ll sass if I want to.

Jada: Sass away, but I’M the fabbest of them all.

      LIES! I actually rank them from 1-64, in order of who had the largest number of awesome looks, and split them up into four brackets, and do #1 vs. #16, etc., just like a real bracket. So I don’t even decide which person gets matched up against which person – I let math do it!
