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- the color is more flattering on her, and the looser fit looks nicer (or as M said, “less hoochie”).

goeia on

Beyonce of course….She’s absolutely stunning!!!

Elda on

They both look great but Rachel wins this round, she looks beautiful!!

Even tho I am a ginormous Bey fan, I must admit that this dress looks really good on Rachel. But if you put them both in a dress that flatters Bey, Rachel prolly wouldn’t look too good in it. Just like comparing apples and oranges. I think they are both very talented, and very beautiful women. Just very different.

Love them both!

even w/the pink highlights, i gotta go with rachel!! beyonce looks huge in this fabric and makes the dress look gaudy. sorry beyonce followers; sad but true!!

Erika on

Didn’t Katie wear this dress too? Anywho, the dress looks FAR better on Rachel. I can’t stand Beyonce, she’s obnoxious!!!

Abby on

Rachel! She has an amazing figure and the color goes really well with her skin. I like the pink highlights because it’s different but thinks she is more striking with darker hair.
