Face off of the Ages

Oh, no she didn't! Hollywood mom-to-be Jessica Alba and timeless beauty Helen Mirren donned very similar leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana dresses just three months apart. Alba, 30, used it to show off her baby bump (before giving birth August 13 to daughter Haven), while Dame Mirren proved she's still got "it" at 66. That leaves just one question to ask in this style showdown ... who wore it better?

"Spy Kids" star Jessica rocked the frock while hosting a party for Lucky magazine (she's the September cover girl) and on July 20 in Los Angeles. The brunette wisely let the floor-length gown be the main attraction, as she kept her accessories to a minimum, adding only hoop earrings and bangle bracelets.

Her competition, star of "The Queen," wore the design at the premiere of her movie "Arthur" on April 20 in NYC. Mirren finished off her fun ensemble with a fitted black leather jacket with matching sleeves, hoop earrings of her own, and a black clutch.

Before declaring a winner, I must make a style confession: I've never been crazy about animal prints. They can look oh-so wrong unless you wear them just right. In this case, however, both Jessica and Helen look fierce! Each woman wore the gown in a way that flatters her body and is appropriate for her stage of life. Both simply stun, and for that, I have to declare it a tie. Do you agree?

Who wore the Dolce & Gabbana dress best?
