Fashion Faceoff: Rachel vs. Beyonce

03/06/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Rachel McAdams looks lovely on this month’s cover of ELLE (we love that her hair is still pink!) but we couldn’t help thinking how familiar her dress was. Yup, it’s a version of the same Armani Privé gown that Beyoncé walked the Academy Awards red carpet in. Considering that the photos of Rachel were shot well before the Oscars, it amazes us that she is also photographed in Kirsten Dunst’s Chanel Couture gown for the inside spread! Chalk it up to great minds thinking alike. But Beyoncé and Rachel generally have such different styles, this faceoff is an unexpected one! So, you tell us: Who wears the Armani gown better? Rachel McAdams or Beyoncé?

I agree with others who said that Beyonces hips doesnt work well with the gown fabric it accentuates every possible curve that she has and magnifies it to an unflattering level.Rachel probably looks better in it but as Helga mentioned you cant really see the bottom part of her.Deb-I totaly agree with you on Katies stylist-she was all beige at the Oscars-dress, scraf, shoes, purse and mint green stones in her hair?!?!

Both look a mess. This gown is not at all fashionable. Bad choice for both ladies. And the Chanel thing also looks ridiculous!!!

i think rachel looks better in it i really didn’t like this dress on beyonce (whom i love) but i really like it on rachel it looks like a completely different dress.

HANDS DOWN RACHEL. the dress looks cheap and doesn’t fit well on Beyonce, where as on Rachel the dress looks ethereal. I wasn’t a fan of the dress when I saw Beyonce wearing during the oscars, but Rachel looks fab.

rachel all the way. i loved her in the notebook too. beyonce just didnt do the dress right. its a great dress but it shouldnt be worn to an awards show like the oscars. the beadin is too much for the oscars. on rachel its great for a cover of a magazine.

P.S: has anyone ever noticed that beyonce usually poses with one leg out?
