Poll: Battle of the Celebrity Cookbook Fashions: Eva Longoria vs Gwyneth Paltrow

Eva Longoria signs copy of her cookbook Eva's Kitchen at Borders in NYC Gwyneth Paltrow Signs Copies of My Father's Daughter Cookbook at Barnes & Noble in NYC

Both of these stars have been running all over the U.S. plugging their new cookbooks Eva's Kitchen and My Father's Daughter. I've been really excited to test out recipes from each collection (My famous Sangria is actually an Eva Longoria recipe and it's TDF... let me know if you want it!) but I was more excited when I noticed that each star was upping the "Promotional Appearance Outfit" practically daily! Which is why I am dying to ask you fellow readers... Who had the better style?!

Eva turned to her good friend Victoria Beckham for impeccable dressing during her cookbook press tour. While taping The Early Show on April 4th, Eva wore the Cap Sleeve Tunic in cadillac pink from the Spring 2011 collection. After fashionistas swooned over this design it sold out within 24 hours of her wearing it. Eva paired it with blush colored satin pumps from Brian Atwood and a gorgeous hairstyle. Next she showed up on The View on April 5th in this 3/4 sleeve shift dress. Although I can't find a full length picture you can watch more of her interview here. LOVE this tangerine color.. it's so fab! Lastly Eva wore another Victoria Beckham Spring 2011 dress in a gorgeous nude color. Her one shoulder draped dress is fresh and classy. Nude Ferragamo pumps and bright jade earrings help punch this outfit up. Eva's recipe for fashion: Sleek silhouettes, pops of color and gorgeous curls. Love!

Gwyneth is my new go-to girl crush. I know that she's always been a beautiful woman and I first became obsessed with her during her Sliding Doors/A Perfect Murder days (I wanted to chop my hair just like hers! So lovely!) But as of late she's really been on my fashion radar. She takes this whole minimalist approach to her wardrobe seriously and while I am all over the place with a love of sequins and sparkle, I really can appreciate the clean lines and effortlessness she gives off. My first fav look she's sported so far is from her BFF Stella McCartney. Gwyn wore her friend's white shift dress to an event on April 11 celebrating the release of the cook book. It looks really sleek and modern and the color pops against her glowing skin. I've also literally been dreaming about those Sergio Rossi cutout booties. I mustfind a look for less because they are beyond amazing. Next up she hit NYC for a Good Morning America taping wearing both a blush tone dress and blazer by Alexander Wang. Shoes were once again Sergio Rossi. I like the asymmetrical hem of the dress. So simple and elegant! Lastly she wore a fabulous Spring 2011 dress from Vionnet with an adorable bow belt to a Williams Sonoma book signing. Her legs are killer in it and I am dying over those colored sandals from Aperlai (thought I haven't been able to find them at any store!) A fresh face, easy hair and clean lines are ingredients for Gwyneth's fantastic look.

Now it's time for you to tell me which star's style you love the best! Vote in my poll below and leave me a comment if you'd love to see a look for less done from any of the above! (Remember Carrie Underwood's look for less that you guys loved?!) Hey! It's almost Friday! :)
