Cameron Diaz, Maggie Gyllenhaal

If we were Maggie Gyllenhaal we'd be like, have at it! Cameron Diaz waited a full year to steal this breezy summer cocktail frock from the White House Down star. While there is no statute of limitations on a celebrity style (thank you Internet), the steal stings less as more time passes.

We remember saying this hand painted look might be better off on the wall at the Museum of Modern Art, but now that we've had some distance, there is something lovely about the brushstroke print. Could the Sex Tapes star be to thank for our switch?

There is something lighter and brighter about the way the blonde beauty's hair pops against this darker dress, but hair color can't possibly break this tie. We thought shoe choice might help but both leading ladies are rocking simple, pointy black pumps.

But then we noticed something unique around the waistline. See how Cameron's thin black sash sits higher, while Maggie's lands right at the waist? It's the tiniest contrast but enough to give us some real rationale. We prefer the empire waist to the classic fit. Agree or disagree?

Tune-in to an all-new Fashion Police this Friday at 9/8c on E!
