Dakota Johnson and Jennifer Lawrence are two former starlets who got minor roles in movies that made it really big, thanks to books-turned-movie franchises.

Jennifer became an instant household name not only because of her top-class acting chops but also thanks to the enormous popularity of the dystopian movie The Hunger Games, in which she plays the protagonist, Katniss Everdeen.

Dakota, who until recently was practically anonymous, became an instant A-lister when she bagged the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Jennifer has years of experience on Dakota when it comes to dressing up for the red carpet, but it seems like the latter is determined to give the former a run for her money. Both actresses wore plunging neckline gowns at separate events and to us, this seems like fair game for comparison.

The 25-year-old had very minimal accessories and even opted to keep her usual hairstyle. Later that night, she was spotted wearing a moto leather jacket over her daring frock.

While the 24-year-old looked stunning in this plunging neckline, she disappointed a lot of fashion critics. They were expecting more from her after she was given the go-signal to wear designers other than Dior. If you’ve been keeping track of her red carpet appearances, you probably know that most of the time, she’s clad in Dior.

Who do you think did a better job of wearing and styling the popular plunging neckline dress? We think they both looked great, but Dakota looked sexier. The dress flattered her and her red lips took the understated appeal up a notch.

Hollywood seems to be smitten with the au naturel, push-up bra-less look. You can give it a try with these dresses:
