Mel B Elton JohnOne dress. Two girls. Yeah, you know the rest!

This week’s duo are contending for our attention on a very same-but-different level. Both Mel B and actress Joanna Krupa recently wore a stunning Walter Mendez creation, on the same day (yes, really), to different Oscars parties, and now were pretty badly stuck for choice!

Attending Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party in a rather risqué look was Mel B, who sported a hand-beaded, mermaid-bottom gown with nude mesh cut-outs. Smoky eyes, a slick of black on the nails and a very deep neckline completed this daring look, while hair was slicked back to perfection

Taking to the Fame and Philanthropy post-Oscar party on the same night was actress Joanna Krupa, who opted for a more demure version of Mel B’s gown. With ample cleavage on display, Joanna opted out of leg-flashing, instead opting for a wispy up-do and subtle make-up.

So, although the looks were pretty similar, who wins in the style stakes? We’re going to have to give this one to…Joanna! The less-is-more approach clearly didn’t work this time, Mel; we’re diggin’ Joanna’s more refined red carpet effort. Do you agree?
