Son Ye Jin and Taeyeon, two equally beautiful ladies, butt heads in this fashion showdown in a shoulder-baring white one piece featuring an intricate weaving and geometric patterns. 

Son Ye Jin wore the dress for an interview regarding her new film 'The Truth Beneath' and Taeyeon wore it to 'KCON 2016 Abu Dhabi.' 

The key difference between the two stars was the styling; while Son Ye Jin went classy, Taeyeon opted for girly and refreshing. The actress did her hair up in a casual yet elegant do, and touched up whole look with unassuming yet feminine accessories including silver earrings and a pearl ring. Taeyeon, on the other hand, spared the accessories, letting the dress speak for itself. She did make the outfit pop with a pair of bright red strappy, pointed heels. 

While I appreciate both Son Ye Jin and Taeyeon's efforts to give the piece some character, I knew which look I preferred the moment I began writing. Son Ye Jin's styling hands down won my heart over because she played the dress exactly to her advantages. The actress softened the geometric patterns of the dress with the elegant hairdo, natural makeup, and feminine accessories which couldn't look better on her. Taeyeon, however, didn't seem to know what she was really going for with the dress. The red shoes are not a good match for the dress in my humble opinion; they made too strong a contrast compared to the dress...perhaps that's what Taeyeon intended but I'm not really feeling it. 

Of course, you may feel completely different, so share your own thoughts below and lets us know which look you prefer.

Why does Son Ye Jin's smile look so forced and pained? I'm not trying to hate, I just think she doesn't look happy at all and I don't understand.

I understand what you mean and actually agree 😳 Something in her gaze makes her look more sad 😣

For me, Taeyeon. I like her hairstyle & pop of red through her shoes & lipstick 😍

The dress made the same impression on me for both so I don't really prefer one over the other... I do like Taeyeon's shoes though

I pick Son Ye Jin because she fits the dress more, but her outfit is too plain for me. Taeyeon on the other hand looks so small. Her bonyness is more pronounced when she wears the off-shoulder style.
