Elle Macpherson & Anne Hathaway In Tom Ford: Who Wore It Better? (PHOTOS, POLL)

When Anne Hathaway hosted the Oscars in 2011, all eyes were on her dresses. With eight different outfit changes (each one chosen by Rachel Zoe), she had to hit a fashion high note again and again.

Some were hits -- nearly all viewers approved of the stunning maroon Versace number and no one could argue with the adorable Lanvin tuxedo.

But most everyone took issue with Anne's gray, high-necked Tom Ford gown, which viewers thought of as underwhelming, unflattering or simply unattractive.

So it was quite brave of Elle Macpherson to try the much-maligned dress on Wednesday night. The Aussie model attended the National Television Awards 2012 in London wearing the gray Tom Ford frock, accenting the bejeweled look with a dramatic braid-meets-ponytail hairstyle.

The dress didn't great reviews the first time -- how does it fare the second time around? And, of course: who wore it better?
