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?

Rachel wears it better. The sleeve-drape and looser fit make it less hoochie.

Rachel looks fantastic! I’ve seen more flattering dresses on Beyonce.

Rachel looks sooo much better! I love her

DEFINITELY Rachel. Beyonce usually looks so good, but the light color and shiny fabric of the gown make her hips look double in size. Besides, the color is more flattering on a blonde.

I am a huge fan of both girls but I have to go with Rachel on this one. The dress just doesnt flatter Beyonces figure but I do agree with Sarah, I did LOVE that dress she wore while performing at the Oscars. (plus, Rachel is dating Ryan Gosling and he is sooooo cute!)

Dawn on

I really find the goddess theme of the dress not appealing.

I think it was awful what these designers did to Rachel, it was betrayal.

Anyway, both dresese look waaay better on Rachel. Beyonce looks deformed, her hips are just too wide. I don’t think she has a good body, I just don’t.

Kirsten looks terrible, and with that posture, she makes even the most expensive gown , look like trash. If I were a designer, I would never let HER wear my clothes, she’d just kill anything!!

To have the same Armani gown appear on the red carpet is not a big suprise being it from Ellle. Elle is a fashion magazine and there are many gowns that have been shown in Vogue, W and others that have also appeared on the red carpet. I think that they both make the dress look as wonderful as it is. It just shows how versatile the gown really is.

Didn’t Katie Holmes wear it too, but in a different color? She put the jewels in her hair, though, which was sweet and creative.
