Who Wore It Better? Elie Saab Metallic Gown

Beyonce Knowles showed off in a racy Elie Saab Metallic Gown at last year's Golden Globes awards. Paired with black jeweled sandals, a gold cuff, and dramatic posing, this golden girl was nothing short of bootylicious. Monica Cruz turned down the volume and strutted in the same dress at the Elle Awards in Barcelona accessorizing with minimal accessories and strappy sandals. Both of them look haute, but which one is the fiercest of them all?

Keepin it real, Monica looks sweet but she really doesn't fill out the gown. Not to mention that her lack of accessories and a hair do don't help. They posted the worst pic they could find of Beyonce just so Monica could get some votes. InStyle represents B in her usual shy poses.,,20182239_20181980_20422960,00.html The picture above is more of Sasha Fierce than Beyonce. This gown was designed to hug the natural figure of a woman. Monica can't be mad she tried to fit her pencil shaped body into a dress made to fit an hour glass frame. Come on. Be real.

Monica looks so much more classy. Beyonce always has her body hanging out and it's not flattering.

I like the dress on Monica much better - she makes it look classy. Beyonce sorry to say looks trashy and flambouyant here - too much girl!

Beyonce's hair does nothing for her! Her dark roots make it look like her hair is always greasy. She is a very pretty woman but this look is not flattering on her at all. Monica looks so elegant. Wonderful!

I love Beyonce, but Monica wore her dress, while the dress just kinda wore Beyonce. With a dress like that, you don't really have to do anything else. By layering even more stuff, B just looked a little hoochie.

Who is B's stylist? She always looks like a tranny hooker.

I like it on Monica Cruz better, although I think the color looks beautiful on Beyonce's skin...

Monica, hands down. Beyonce needs to realize that she can do natural looking poses and still look sexy; these overly posed shots do not work for her.

That pose on Beyonce is just so unnatural, I voted for Monica.

I love the simple approach Monica took. I appreciate the fact that Beyonce isn't afraid to flaunt her curves. I'm just not sure this is the right dress for that job.

Beyonce manages to make everything look tacky. Also, "smell my armpit" is not a good pose.
