It’s A SAG Awards showdown! Two very different actresses were recently spotted in this two-toned Marc Jacobs dress — but who pulled off this black and white look better?

Helena Bonham Carter may be known for her eccentric style, but this dress is definitely tame for the star! She wore this Marc Jacobs dress to the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards on Jan. 30, where she paired it with simple black pumps. She kept the look a little bit more interesting by adding a studded black bag and wearing her hair in long curls — but that wasn’t the first time we spotted this frock!

Freida Pinto wore the dress first to the premiere of Miral at the Hamptons International Film Festival back in October. She wore it with strappy Jimmy Choo sandals and had her hair pulled back into a sleek bun.

While both stars look beautiful, I think that Helena actually rocked this look a little better. Freida’s hair looks a little bit too severe pulled back like that, and I think Helena made the better shoe choice — Freida’s sandals just don’t really go well with the style of the dress.

This style is pretty popular — a shorter, turquoise version of it was seen on Elle Fanning at the Venice Film Festival in September, and Leighton Meester has been spotted in a similar pink dress. Kate Hudson was also seen wearing a pink version on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Who do you think wore it better?
