At last night's AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards honoring Morgan Freeman, both Brazilian bombshells Camila Alves and Gisele Bundchen opted for floor-length sequins. While Gisele went for a sexy-meets-sweet Oscar de la Renta, adorned with a pretty pink bow and all-over silver embroidery, Camila kept it on the sleeker side in a Zuhair Murad platinum, beaded gown. Both looks stunned on the AFI red carpet, but we want to know whether you prefer Gisele's sequins with a pop of pink or Camila's slinkier style. Which of the Brazilian beauties takes this style battle?
While out in London, Claudia Schiffer showed off a casual look that capitalizes on this season's '70s cool.

Oscar de la Renta's resort collection paid playful homage to Picasso via cubist prints and bold allusions to Spain, the artist's homeland, without compromising the classic elegance for which Oscar is known. Dresses were treated with patchwork and embroidery, and finished off with hats that looked stolen from a flamenco dancer's closet. Speaking of flamenco, a ruffled red dress that flounced down the runway needed only a set of castanets, as did a polka-dot strapless dress with a flirty peplum hem. The large collection also showed swim, like a deep v-neck one-piece and knit tap shorts with a crop top. Finishing the show were Oscar's evening gowns, the highlight of which might have to be an emerald green one-shoulder dress worn by Candice Swanepoel. Click the slideshow to see the collection.
