Battle of the Lanvin: Scott Thomas vs. Portman

Talk about poor planning. Actresses Kristin Scott Thomas and Natalie Portman both showed up to the 2008 Cannes Film Festival in blue Lanvin dresses. It's bad enough that they're both wearing the same designer to the same premiere, but throw on top of it the fact that they're the same shade of blue. At least there's one difference: Kristin's is long and flowy, while Natalie's is short and fun. Who wins this blue Lanvin battle?

Natalie looks cuter, but I'm just not a fan of this dress, on either.

I thought these were for when they wear the same exact thing. It's not the same dress.

I think Natalie looks better, especially with her silver heels, but I don't like either dress very much.

Neither! Not a cute dress, Lanvin.

Kristin looks like she's wearing curtains. And not in the snazzy Scarlett O'Hara way. I picked Natalie all the way...

I say Scott Thomas all the way...Portman's dress {although I love the color} is hideous!!

Natalie's shoes are much better too.

I think the cut of Kristin's dress-- the fact that the hem lands just at her ankle-- makes her look stumpier. As a whole Natalie looks much better, with her choice of accessories, makeup, hair and shoes. The dress looks great on her.

Natalie is looking so thin, and she's been trying very hard to cover it up with all of these voluminous dresses. I prefer Kristin's dress.

They're both beautiful in different ways, I wouldn't compare them. But Let's talk about how fabulous that color dress looks when walking along a red carpet. That color makes both of them glow.
