In a battle of six identical slate-grey sequined Hervé Léger bandage dresses, it's hard to choose just who wore it best. Let's start with who wore it first. Surprisingly, that honor goes to Bethenny Frankel (of "The Real Housewives of New York," and now, "Bethenny Getting Married?" fame). While she certainly possesses a strong jaw and a high-pitched nasal voice, ahead-of-the-game style she does not. Not that an Hervé Léger bandage dress is anywhere near avant-garde, but I digress. Almost five months later, in September of 2008, Sophia Bush made a body-con statement with the dress even if she did have it hemmed to an awkward, matronly length. Two days later, Leona Lewis and her bangin' curves stepped out in it, accessorized with nothing but a pair of strappy nude sandals, her trademark waves and glowy, bronzed skin. Almost two weeks later, Heidi Montag's pre-op body filled it out rather nicely -- even though I admit that such a tight dress needn't have been shortened into a mini.

The dress then went on an almost year-long hiatus before returning in August 2009 on Mel B, who paired it with a very chic pair of beige python gladiator sandals and a visible tattoo before coming to rest June 9th of this year on Erin Andrews. Andrews slipped on a set of sexy nude platform sandals and wore her tousled hair down around her shoulders.
So, who wore it best, then? My choice is Leona Lewis for fit, simplicity, attitude and accessorization. Who do YOU think wore it best? And please tell me, with all the talented designers, and the limitless bank accounts, and the connected stylists, and the mind-blowing collections -- why did one dress hit the red carpet six times in less than two years?Follow The Thread on Twitter.
