Nicole Richie and Ellen Pompeo both shined in a gorgeous gold mini during recent red carpet appearances. Nicole, who recently married her beau Joel Madden, wore the sequin shift—which is not only from her fashion line, Winter Kate, but is even named after her!—for a 2009 New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas. She rocked the dress with black tights and YSL pumps and wore her hair down for the night's festivities. Fast-forward about a year, when on Dec. 30 Ellen chose the exact same outfit (down to the dark tights and shoes) for another Vegas event. The only difference was that Ellen, who stars in Grey's Anatomy, whipped her hair into a bun for the ensemble. While both ladies looked lovely in the dress, we thought the originator Nicole won this style matchup. Ellen's hairdo wasn't working for us, but we adored Nicole’s low-key but sexy tousled strands. What do you think?

+ Who wore this Winter Kate dress best — Ellen Pompeo or Nicole Richie?

Look who loves leather! Benji Madden, Joel Madden, and Pete Wentz all arrived at the VH1 Save the Music Foundation Gala in New York City last night wearing similar chic leather jackets. Benji Madden wore a classic motorcycle style, while brother Joel wore a leather jacket with a quilted texture. Meanwhile, Pete Wentz zipped on a waxed leather look. Each of these hotties paired their jackets with all-black ensembles, and fun accessories like classic hats (Benji), wayfarer sunglasses (Joel), and a black beanie (Pete). Though, the Madden Brothers took their matching one step further by adding suspenders, which is why their overall looks — leather jackets included — are our fave. But what do you think?

+ Which leather jacket do you like best — Benji, Joel, or Pete's?
