Ladies and gentleman, we have another epic fashion war on our hands ... this time it's a battle of the reality starlets -- former "Hills" hottie Kristin Cavallari versus "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" beauty Kim Kardashian. Both ladies wore the same cream Hannah Marshall mini ... but who wore it better?

Back in June, Cavallari hit the red carpet sporting the distinctive frock at the 2010 NewNowNext Awards at the Edison in Los Angeles. The blonde bombshell -- who is currently designing a shoe collection of her own -- paired her dress with chunky matching sandals and loose, casual waves. Tanned, toned limbs and barely-there makeup made for a fun, flirty summer look.
Just last month, Ms. Kardashian -- a serial dress copier in my book -- donned the same form-fitting mini for LA Confidential Magazine's Emmy Kick-Off Celebration event in West Hollywood, California. Kim accessorized with a clear Gianfranco Ferre belt with a gold buckle, Loren jewels, and Christian Louboutin heels. Extra-long locks and Kim's usual heavy makeup completed her ensemble.
The dress is a gutsy choice for both ladies, as the bell-shaped skirt has a tendency to make even the slimmest star look like they have giant hips. Fortunately, Kristin's lithe figure and a belt for Kim easily solve this dilemma, allowing both girls successfully flaunt their curves. Though I love Kristin's simple take on the frock, I feel that Kim's va-va-voom hourglass figure is far better suited to the design of the dress, so for me, Kardashian wins the war!
