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 so much better than Beyonce. Its to light in color for Beyonce.

Drew on

ALL of you are dead wrong rachel looks a mess and what is she trying to pull of!!! Beyonce looks so much better!!

Beyonce has a way better body, and she’s talented too, but in this particular gown I’m going for Rachel. Only because the color gown she has on, complements her frame and skin tone better. It’s not as flashy and in your face.

I have to go with my hometown Canadian girl Rachel !!!!!!!!

cori on

i think rachel looks better in it. beyonce is gorgeous, but the dress doesn’t look as good on her.

Chrys on

Absolutely positively Rachel… she’s stunning! I thought Beyonce looked a bit trashy….

miajade on

obviously rachel. b tries too hard — do u wonder why it was jennifer hudson who was nominated for an oscar and won?

Ginette on

I love Beyonce in this dress! She looks great! The dress is too light of a colour for Rachel, but I like the pink in her hair.

Meleine on

Rachel!! In my opinion Beyonce looks fat in the dress…the dress is for someone slim…and she def isnt!

Lisa Marie on

Rachel looks way better!! She’s so beautiful and anything she wears will reflect that no matter who she’s up against!!
