Who Wore it Better? Joan Smalls vs. Zoe Saldana in Balmain Resort 2012

Supermodel Joan Smalls attended the Victoria’s Secret afterparty at Dream Downtown in New York in the same richly detailed Balmain Resort 2012 minidress Zoe Saldana wore back in April to the Miami premiere of her movie Colombiana:

Both beauties offered their own iteration of the runway look, Joan rocking hers sans belt with simple silver accents and Zoe creatively adding a white train and strappy black heels.

This one’s a toughie. Though I’m not a huge fan of Zoe’s white train, I definitely think she triumphed in the accessories department. Joan looks lovely (and fills out the dress more), but it’s hard to ignore her toes grazing the pink carpet. If she’d gone one shoe size up, she’d take the cake.
What do you think?
