Who Wore Zara's Plaid Zip Dress Better: Maria Menounos or Olivia Palermo?

(PacificCoastNews.com, Zara.com, FameFlynet Pictures)It looks like we have some Zara fans on our hands! Within a week of each other, both Maria Menounos and Olivia Palermo sported the same checked dress with a hip zipper from the chain retailer.

First, Olivia wore hers to a Carven fashion show in Paris (ooh la la!). She paired the piece with a pair of gray suede over-the-knee boots and carried a teal green envelope clutch. A sweet side-braid gave this an innocent girly touch, despite her fierce footwear. Maria went a simpler route on the set of Extra, wearing only classic black pumps and her go-to voluminous 'do.

The best part of this showdown? You can try your hand at working the look—it's still available at Zara (in every size!) for $119.
