One dress, two events! Which lovely lady looks best?

Didn’t Meryl Streep look sophisticated at the The 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 23? I thought her long sleeved Balenciaga was the perfect choice for the red carpet vet — but that wasn’t the first time we’ve seen that frock! Salma Hayek wore the same dress to the Cairo International Film Festival on November 10. While Salma shortened the sleeves and accessorized with a metallic clutch, Meryl added a belt and paired the look with green earrings. The older actresses get, the harder it is to look chic on the carpet, but Meryl mastered it in this perfectly draped dress at the SAG awards — she looked totally put together! On the other hand, Salma usually looks great in whatever she throws on, and this time was no exception. Talk about a tough fashion face-off!
