    Ellen Pompeo!!!

  • [Fug Face [You]]

    Charlize Theron can wear a black potato-sack and look better than both those biishes on their best day.

    I was gonna say Ellen too but they all look gorgeous. There’s something about covering up but still being totally sexy. You don’t always need to be hanging out there. Not that the other two are. They all are TDF

  • angelah


  • Ella

    Charlize looks stunning!

  • cb

    Penelope hands down.
    Charlize, whom I love, is too orange
    and Ellen Pampeo I just don’t think is attractive – sorry.

    Charlize Theron

  • Charlie

    Penelope, with Charlize as a close second.

    Ellen Pompeo is not very attractive anyway, and her dress doesn’t make things better.

  • Kate

    Charlize… Gorgeous

  • Snarky Sharky

    Charlize! Then Penelope. I like Ellen very much but she looks like a dying nun here

  • Sophie

    HAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAAAAAAA dying nun!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Penelope should have put on darker lipstick.

  • Charlotte

    Penny, of course! Just beautiful with a simple dress. She’s so elegant!

  • Anadin

    Definately Penelope,

  • leila


  • Anon.

    They are all beautiful women. I think Penelope’s dress suits her best. I think Ellen Pompeo has too much dress. All that black is overpowering. And I’m not crazy about the way her hair is styled. For hair and make-up I pick Charlize and for total look, Penelope.

  • Mavs

    Charlize definitely!

  • Original Curious

    erm…imho, Ellen is wearing a bag. Charlize looks stunning, and Penelope is right behind her.

  • tamika

    I think they all look AMAZING, but i love Ellen the best! She rocks on greys!

  • Bibi

    Penelope. Ellen Pompeo is just ugly in that dress.

  • HellYes

    I’m a big Ellen fan, and most of the time she looks great on special events, but this time I honestly say she is NOT pretty on this dress and the hair is just awful! So I’ll go for Charlize. and Penelope is just too busy “doing” Lenny Kravitz these days so she’s not on her best looks either!

  • Nicola

    Charlize = wow

  • Our world is coming to an end…

    Penelope Cruz is classy and beautiful. She totally can pull off the look.

    Charlize Theron is OVERRATED. Pompeo…Pretty, but nothing extraordinary!

  • Natalie

    Charlize. She looks elegant.

  • yuehun

    Charlize,she looks amazing!

  • Mariana


  • Mmmmm

    Charlize for sure. Ellen’s hair looks very old lady and Penelope drives me crazy with that smile somethere weird about it?!

  • [Fug Face [You]]

    missy – buy a TV

    Our world is coming to an end… – just end yourself now.

  • Anne
