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?

When I was watching the Oscars, I thought this dress was one of Beyonce’s worst dress choices ever. It’s not flattering on her and the ankle-strap shoes are not flattering to her.

Rachel looks better.

Erika: Katie wore a dress in a similar color and style a few weeks back. On Oscar night, she had some of the “grapevine” stuff in her hair.

Rachel. She makes the dress more soft and couture looking. Beyonce looks good in it but seems like everything she puts on she looks goudy and over done up.

rachel !!!! love her !!!

Defiantly Racheal. Beyonce always looks like a tacky vegas showgirl or like she is trying out for a beauty pageant.

Liz on

Definitely Beyonce. No blonde is gonna look better than B. And whats up wit Rachel’s pink hair? Talk about TACKY

Rachel wears this dress much better! I think this dress makes Beyonce look fat! Her hips are entirely too big to being wearing such a beautiful gown. Beyonce, next time wear something that suits you, don’t ruin such a beautiful gown.

Cherelle on

BEYONCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks gorgeours in this dress. She looks way better than Rachel, whoever the hell she is!

Elda on

P.S. I agree with Melissa, she does have a good point.

Like someone said above Rachel is sitting so you can’t even see how the dress really looks on her figure. Plus the magazine photo lighting is way different from the red carpet picture. These can’t be fairly compared.

I’m not a fan of this dress but they both look fine.

I actually thought it was an ugly dress when I saw B at the Oscars. She’s not the most fashinable girl. So it surprised me to see Rachel wearing, but I have to say it looks better on her if only because we’re spared Beyonce’s robotic pose just so we can see her damn leg all the way up! Plus it makes her hip/tighs look bigger than they actaully are.
