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. She makes it seem a bit classier.

I’m sorry to have to say this because I love Beyonce, but I think Rachel looks better in the dress. Beyonce looks uncomfortable and those shoes don’t match the elegance of the dress. They both still rock!!!!

Sheila on

Rachel is sitting down in her picture, therefore you can’t see how well she’s wearing it for her figure. Plus, I don’t think there is a woman alive as gorgeous as Beyonce. Beyonce is just breathtakingly beautiful. Rachel doesn’t even come close to touching Beyonce.

Who the heck is Beyonce?

Carly on

They both look fabulous. The color really is flattering on Beyonce’s skintone. I like the beads – they’re sort of grapevine-ish and elegant. The dress would be too plain without them.

Heidi on

I think they both look great Rachel just brings a wholoe different side to it i love them both

RoSsB on

Beyonce definitely looks better.

nas on

rachel looks better by far

rachel b. on

100% Rachel looks better than Beyonce in that Chanel Couture gown.

Sam on

Please Rachel looks like a stick in a dress. Beyonce looks far better.
