Fashion Faceoff: Marchesa Dress

Fashion Faceoff: Marchesa Dress

Dita Von Teese wore a gorgeous Marchesa ebony silk tulle ball dress with gold hand-embroidered lead appliqué to the Seventh on Sale dinner gala in NYC earlier this month. The burlesque queen made her outfit pop with dark red lipstick.

Penelope Cruz wore the same Marchesa gown in the December 2007 pages of Vogue. The Spanish actress went a little more au naturale makeup-wise.

Who wore it best — DITA VON TEESE or PENELOPE CRUZ?

  • !!!

    penelope of course

  • eve

    DITA because Penelope wear it during a photoshoot.
    Dita has to do her make-up, and her hair all by herself.

  • talula

    Penelope. There’s a wildness to the dress and Penelope is more exotic and natural.

  • suzy


  • J

    Stunning on both. Silver embroidery would look lovelier on Dita and the gold suits Penelope beautifully.

  • Gina

    I go with Dita.

  • linda


  • Team Dita

    Dita! Both ladies look great, but Dita looks astonishing!

  • Melody

    Definitely Penelope, the golden leaves go way better with her skin tone than with Vampira’s

  • ethel

    their both rough looking,pee wins over pale,and needin a blood transfusion fritos.

  • Raquel (rachel)

    penelope of courseeeee

  • Greta

    Dita all the way. She looks like an old-time Hollywood movie star whereas Penelope’s hair and makeup are way too understated for such a glamourous dress.

  • purple gem


  • get a tan

    Ditta has no color.
    P. has real breasts.So ummmmm P.

  • Eulalia

    This dress would make any woman look beautiful, but Ms. Von Teese looks like a goddess here, so I’m going with Dita!

  • mario


  • gem

  • AKBdancer

    P looks great but i’m going with Dita!

    26 Greta : 11/23/2007 at 8:20 pm She looks like an old-time Hollywood movie star.
    This isn’t the ‘old time’. Dita needs to wake up,she looks 50 now, will she be stripping at 60? Her line of work is offensive to intelligent women.
    Pene works it 100% better than white chalk does.

  • Anna

    ^I totally agree. Dita hits it out of the ball park.

  • Jackie

    i want more postings on zac and vanessa!!!

  • Ashley

    DITA! She looks like a young Vivien Leigh!

  • Elsa

    Ok, you need glasses if you think Dita looks 50.

    Love her vintage Hollywood style!

  • my2cents

    I love Marchesa. Hard choice but I’m going with Dita too.

  • amber

    Please don’t ‘INSULT VIVIAN’,she was very pretty.
    Dita couldnt shine her shoes. :smile:

  • mike

    penelope of course

  • Ms. Parker

    ^It’s ViviEn. I think they’re both beautiful. It’s a nice homage; I could see Ms.Leigh wearing this dress.

  • lola

    Both look gorgeous but I have to go with Pene. And to the poster who said Dita has to do her hair and make up all by herself-I highly doubt that. No way a person could always looked that groomed without the help of professionals. Majority of celebs have a team to help them look good when they go out to events…thats why they always look so polished!

  • alana


  • jade
