Miley Cyrus was turning heads Monday night when she showed up at the LA premiere of "The Hunger Games" in a lacy black Emilio Pucci dress that showed off her cleavage and well-toned abs. The next day, she was compared to Gwyneth Paltrow, who wore a similar ensemble at the 2011 Emmy Awards. Which begs to question, who rocked the midriff look better?
Stealing fashion ideas from fellow celebs is tacky, considering both dresses were by the same designer, but is showing off toned abs more age appropriate for the teen idol or for the actress nearly twice her age? When Gwyneth showed up on the red carpet at the Emmy's last year, she received nothing but positive remarks.
The former "Iron Man 2" star rocked the midriff look with original style as the ensemble only showed a little skin and flattered her figure well. No one complained the Academy Award-winning actress was too old for the look, because she wore it with class and not just for the sex appeal. Her appearance was sleek and dignified, and she proved women can still look vibrant at her age.
Unfortunately for Miley, she already lost originality points by raiding someone else's closet. And while the top she wore showed off plenty of skin, the skirt did not fit her figure well. She looked more like a gypsy at the premiere than an actress with style and class. So, while some may argue that the overall midriff ensemble is more age appropriate for the former "Hannah Montana" star, it does not necessarily mean she can rock the look better.
The "Can't Be Tamed" singer made an appearance Monday night to support her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, who plays 'Gale Hawthorne' in "The Hunger Games". The movie will hit theaters on March 23rd. As far as her own career, Cyrus has recently dropped out of working as a voice over in an animated production, "Hotel Transylvania", so she could focus on her music.
