  • erin

    natalie is one of the best actresses out there but hilary is gorgeous. there’s a reason why she’s gonna be a face for estee lauder, she’s just beautiful. i love the shoes and earrings on hilary too.

  • [Fug Face........]

    natalie’s so adorable, but the model’s oozing ‘swag’ so she’s looking a little better
    [sexier] – better shoes too.

    natalie wins by a long shot. love her! she’s the definition of beauty. she may not have the height but it doesn’t matter. she always looks exquisite. no contest. that other chick isn’t even in the same league.

  • anon.

    Natalie looks absolutely stunning. This is one of the rare occasions when the film star looks better than the model, IMO.Truthfully, I’ve rarely seen Natalie not look beautiful.

  • madison

    Natalie owns it.

  • anonymous

    Natalie…hands down!

  • Elsa

    Natalie Portman. She looks more natural.

  • Raichill

    It’s a hideous dress which looks like a black plastic rubbish bag but I prefer it on Natalie.

  • angelah

    Natalie looks so beautiful.

  • vbn

    both !

  • sunshineday

    Definitely Natalie! this look is hard to pull off and she does it perfectly. the model looks kinda like a transvestite in that photo.

  • Lucie

    Natalie is the best and they both look great, but I don’t think she accessorized the rather plain dress enough. I like the sleeked hair and gold hoop earrings worn with it.

  • talia

    Definitely Natalie!

  • Mad


  • Ida

    Tough choice. But I’ll go with Hilary. She just looks a little more stunning than Natalie. I think it’s because of the way she accessorized.

  • Lila

    Natalie wins! Absolutely stunning! She’s on a roll lately.

  • Ruth

    NATALIE! The model looks like a pretty young boy.

  • Kitten



    NATALIE PORTMAN all the way! She looks so very natural with it.

    I mean, she’s not some supermodel yet mother nature made her charming beautiful.

  • danhantuchov

    natalie, hands down.

  • cat

    Natalie Portman

  • Joy

    Natalie owns it!

  • JD

    Natalie all the way, She has an uncharacteristic beauty about her, plus the fack that she isnt a stick and has a bust and hips (she mayyyy be tiny but shes tiny in a way that allows her body to still have natural shape)… she pulls off this dress with much more feminine charm than any waif of a supermodel.

  • stalin

    they both look good but I prefere Natalie EXCEPT for the shoes – the shoes Natalie’s wearing are much to dainty for that dress – something a little heavier like the shoes on the model would’ve been better.

  • Bibi

    Love Natalie. She’s adorable!

  • Melody

    Natalie wins!

  • scarlett

    natalie. i think the dress is a really good one and natalie looks perfect in it. and as someone said i think this is the first time the movie star/singer looks better than the model. just look at the scarlett johansson post below, hideous on scarlett.

  • april

    I’m not too thrill with the black grabage bag dress but natalie rocks that sack.

  • Gael Bernal

    Natalie FTW!!!

  • Аюна

    Natalie Portman WIN!

  • TiaBia

    Quick question…I’ve actually never heard of Hilary Rhoda, so is she really at “super”model or just a model?

    I thought the moniker “supermodel” was only bestowed upon those elite few models that can be pinpointed and our sought out by the highier-tiered designers. This girl appears to be just a regular model!!!

  • none

    Totally objectively, Natalie looks better than the model in every way.

  • Amy

    Natalie. It looks like a garbage bag on the model.

  • Celene

    well, hilary rhoda started couple seasons back at balenciaga, and literally took the fashion industry by storm.. and i dont know any big fashion house she hasnt walked for.. so obviously she isnt some regular model, shes been on NUMEROUS covers from vogue paris to vogue italia to.. even vogue US this month!!.. and cant forget this months numero( french) cover i would say if normal ppl like the general public actually remembered models still exist post the christy turlington.. linda evangelista era.. she would be THE star right now.. even though in the fashion industry she is a star.. admired by the top photographers to the top designers.

  • natalie

    Natalie Portman. She looks stunning, as always!

  • Helena

    Portman all the way on this one. I like the styling on Portman (hair/makeup/accessories/shoes) better than the runway

  • Myra

    Natalie looks so beautiful! Sorry but never heard of the this model Hilary before, nice try though but Natalie wins this one hands down!

  • http://? M


  • Alisha

    Oh my, Natalie blows that model out of the water! Also, the excessive accessories (say that five times fast) on the model take a billowy dress and make it look too severe and not lithe enough.

  • Emilia

    This is not even because i’m a fan of Natalie.
    Honestly, Natalie.

  • chunli

    Def NATALIE, looking gorgeous and very classy…

  • tamara
