When they wore it: Rihanna, 25, turned heads when she wore the dress to the Met Gala in New York City in August 2012. For 31-year-old Richie, last month's pre-Grammys soiree hosted by music exec Clive Davis in Beverly Hills marked the perfect occasion for the frock.

How they styled it: RiRi rocked a floor-length version of the design with a pair of pointy-toed Christian Louboutins and a cool updo, while Richie opted for a much higher hemline and accessorized with a clutch and -- just like Rihanna -- black pumps. Unlike RiRi, the "Fashion Star" judge sported sleek shoulder-length tresses.

Judge's scorecard: "Diamonds" singer Rihanna was sexier all covered up in this textured creation than she's looked stepping out in a lot less clothing. Also, her hairstyle adds a bit of that edginess for which she's known. However, Mrs. Joel Madden had the right idea in cutting off her dress just below the knees, since she has such a petite frame, and her locks brought the drama.

Which look do you think is a cut above the other?
