We know, we know—black is in.

We're only hearing that mantra from every bleepin' starlet from Kim Kardashian to Lea Michele to Fergie to Demi Lovato. When Kardashian finally wore a jacket with some pigment in it, we may or may not have thrown an impromptu party in the office and gotten wasted on crème de menthe. We will neither confirm nor deny.

Our point: This season, we've been starving for color. So when Ginnifer Goodwin wore this stunning scarlet Monique Lhuillier to the Met Gala earlier this year, we thought no way could this dress look any better. But then came Eva Longoria. And in black, of all things.

The onetime Desperate Housewives star wore the cap-sleeved chiffon Lhuillier as one of several costume changes she made as cohost for the recent ALMA Awards. The chameleon—we counted something like six looks total—wore the gown with Tom Ford shoes and Martin Katz jewels. Like her fashion rival Goodwin, she wisely wore her hair up, letting that busy neckline go to work almost as a statement accessory.

Goodwin, for her part, opted for an unexpected shade of pump—silver.

So, which lhady lhooked lhovelier in Lhuillier?
