Fashion Faceoff: Catherine Malandrino Dress

Fashion Faceoff: Catherine Malandrino Dress

Brittany Snow looked svelte and chic in a strapless yellow dress by designer Catherine Malandrino at the Los Angeles premiere of Hairspray on Tuesday. The 21-year-old actress, who plays evil dance queen Amber von Tussel in the film, finished off her look with a pair of black pointy pumps and a cute clutch.

Nicole Richie glammed up in a clean, white version of the Catherine Malandrino dress during a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman last month. The possibly pregnant starlet finished off her look with a pair of peep-toe pumps by Christina Louboutin.

Who wore it best — BRITTANY SNOW or NICOLE RICHIE?

    Brittany hand downs. Not many people can pull off that shade of yellow but she can.

    Nicole’s dress looks classier cuz its below the knee.Snow’s dress is to high above the knee an her racoon eyes are too dark,as well as her shoes are to witchee-poo pointed.

  • Scarlett

  • Shoes4life

    No question Brittany. She fills the dress out and don’t look like a wire hanger with a dress on like Nicole do. Nicole please gain some freaking weight, it is not, nor has it ever been becoming of you.

  • Barbara

    Brittany. Nicole looks like she knotted a bedsheet around herself.

  • [~Famous~]

    They both look really good. But Brittany looks better

  • Nicole hands and feet DOWN WINS!!

    Gosh Snow looks like a bright canary..way to bright..i agree the eye make-up is drastic NICOLE,NICOLE TEARS HER UP.

  • Anonymous

    I love the yellow, especially on a blonde. The white kind of washes her out.

  • suzy


  • amy

    Brittany by a long way!

  • Jimmy

    she’s gorgeous!

  • GiGi

    Neither one……..put ScarJo in that dress. She’ll really fill it out and make it pop

  • pickle

    Brittany! I love it on her. But Nicole looks cute in it as well.

  • joe

    ill say nicole..with such a bright yellow dress, the (gangsta earings’ are not necessary) and those shoes are ugly..pointy toe shoes are so 2004. a pair of gold or silver or white sandals would have been better. nicole kept it simple with no jewerly which you should do when your dress is that dramatic.

  • krufh

    i say NICOLE, her dress is longer and looks classier, it also makes her look taller!

  • Anonymous

    Absolutely agree Brittany looks radiant.

  • jess

    DEFINITELY NICOLE….b snows shoes are ugly and her hairstyle doesnt match the dress. she looks like paris hilton via 1999.

  • [~Famous~]

    Brittany Snow and Assley Simpson look just alike.

  • too yellow nic wins this ,no doubt

    Brittany looks like a bright neon light, just blinding ,the earings are to tacky for this dress, and whats up with those old lady shoes..Brittany shoes are fug..
    Nicole looks classier, softer and wears the dress elegantly,,,without those big @ss hoops. NICOLE GO GURL!!

  • MISA


  • Mia

    Nicole looks stupid standing there pigeon toed. Hair wanked up into a ponytail like she couldn’t be bothered to fix her hair. Brittany’s the winner here.

  • Pam

    Nicole looks great!

  • Mia

    Did Nicole bleach out her skin like Michael Jackson? I know she used to be darker.

  • angelina is to hot

    Sorry but Brit looks like a yellow yield sign wrap in a table cloth and I like her.Gawd those shoes she is wearing reminds me of what a genie would wear.Nicole just looks like the fashionista she is and doesnt seem to be trying hard to pull the look off.I say Nicole for sure.

  • MISA

    mia, i think nicole just stops going to tanning salon.

  • MISA

    Brittany Snow’s shoes dont match her dress. also, that “yellow” is rreally yuck. it reminds me of bananas

  • Jewel

    They both look great…the dress is gorgeous.

  • Amy

    MISA, it doesn’t have to match, just go.


    Definitely Brittany

  • jolie/Pitt/fan

    Nicole is a hit!!!!Nicole is flawless>>>

    Britney,those shoes are horrid just ugly,ugly,ugly, can we say ‘Hocus Pocus’. The extremely yellow-banana whatever colored dress she is wearing is to BRIGHT and LOUD!!Cant miss her in the club or if it’s dark at night.

    BTW. I see BS has updated her blonde but forgot her black roots.I think women if they go blonde please do your eyebrows,don’t leave them black. Come on BS you can do it,and ditch those ugly @ss black patin leather looking grandma shoes. Burn them baby.

  • Life is good

    NiCoLe Is WoW !!..

  • Ace Tomato

    Did Madlandrino intern folding dinner napkins at Spago before her big break?

    Unflattering, ugly pulling to the fabric, floppy draping. Maybe I should make a list of what is okay with the dress. Oh, I’m done then.

  • Edward J

    I’m voting for Brittany. Much more interesting on her. Sexy.

  • Laurs

    Clearly Brittany Snow wore it better. Yellow is this season’s color.

  • Nando


    Anything on Nicole Richie looks like poop.

  • shopgirl

    Nicole takes it, the yellow dress is awful on Brittany.

  • Ms.Richee finishes best

    Gosh Nicole is so adorable she looks fab and beautiful.*On the other hand someone needs to take off the Squash**Pronto.*Clearly,the crayola she was using for liner she should have stop drawing it on at some point*.Nicole is looking hotter and the Classiest! Nicole looks best.

    As for #30 Mia
    Did Nicole bleach out her skin like Michael Jackson? I know she used to be darker.

    Cant you stick a twinkie in both hands and Shut the freak up**jealous much!
    What ya wearing a potato sack?**snap.

  • maddy

    Brittany wears it better by far. She has more poise. However, the girl does look a good 10 years older than she is, especially up close.

  • Me

    Definitely Brittany. Nicole Richie looks well…anorexic…

  • Nana

    Miss Snow. She shines in that yellow dress

  • Anna

    BRITTANY!! BY FAR!. Nicole looks a little gross.

  • Valarie

    Nicole!!!!!BS looks like a Lemon!! Orange tanned skin is never cute #46 Look its Mia, the hater name changer??

  • Angelina

    the yellow’s nicer. but it does look more classier/ sophisticated on nicole. although…it seems to fit brittany snow better and her hair and makeup looks nicer so….overall, brittany!
