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 all the way. I think Beyonce is beautiful, but Rachel looks better in the dress.

does not flatter beyonce’s body at all, you can see her tummy shape.

Rachel hands down!!! Beyonce is such an unoriginal Shakira wannabe, its pathetic.

Rachel looks a lot better in the dress than Beyonce. Beyonce is a beautiful woman, but the dress does not flatter her figure at all.

Uh, yeah…I am SO SICK of Beyonce! Rachel McAdams is such a breath of fresh air versus tired old B!

I think Rachel looks better. The color is more flattering on her. Beyonce has a lovely figure and skin. She needed a color and dress shape to flatter both. This dress does it for Rachel.

Rachel wow no contest there Jayz lost Ryan Gosling got the winner

Rachel does.
Beyonce’s stomach looks big in it. I guess after all the criticisms she got for her too tight, too tacky glittery ensembles, she wanted to do something different. Honestly, this dress doesn’t do anything for her. I loved Nicole Kidman’s red dress. If Beyonce had worn it, it would have flattered her but in a different way. More sexy I guess than Nicole’s version.
Did Kaite Holmes wear this dress a few weeks earlier to Armani’s fashion show? I recall a sinmilar mint green dress on her. Katie Holmes looks the best in Aramni’s designs I think.

Paula on

of course Rachel, is waaaaay better
