Menswear can be tricky to pull off, but these two fashionable females rocked it! Who looked better?

At the tender age of 14, Hailee Steinfeld has managed to become one of the most anticipated and praised stars on the red carpet thanks to her appropriate yet chic sense of style — and her outfit at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night in LA was no exception. In a black sequin Louis Vuitton tuxedo, Hailee looked effortlessly gorgeous, opting for minimal accessories, bold red lips and peep toe pumps. While Hailee looked stunning, she wasn’t the only one to work the menswear trend this week!

Last night, at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center in NYC, Kirsten Dunst donned a similar get-up. In a Patrik Ervell tuxedo and Prada shoes, she looked fabulous. It’s rare to see young female celebs attempt and successfully pull off a tux, (a look that’s usually reserved for Diane Keaton), but I must say I was impressed!

This is a really a toss-up for me. Hailee’s originality and understated elegance are welcome additions to any awards show, but I’m also glad to see Kirsten looking pitch perfect. Fresh off her big win at the Cannes Film Festival, she’s certainly stepping up her game. I think the CFDA’s were a slightly more appropriate event than the MTV Movie Awards to wear a tux, so I’m going to give this one to Kirsten. Hailee has years ahead of her to show off her style, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us. In the meantime, let us know! Who do you think looked better in menswear?
