The Duchess of Cambridge was literally radiant in red for Sunday’s Diamond Jubilee festivities in London, wearing a pleated Alexander McQueen number paired with a matching hat. But as it turns out, we’ve seen this dress before — and, surprisingly, it wasn’t on Kate.

Kim Kardashian (who had another high-fashion faceoff last week) wore a similar version of the frock last August while in New York City. The reality starlet’s creation — a bit shorter — lacked the sleeves and boatneck detail of Kate’s dress. Kate paired her McQueen with nude pumps and a red clutch, while Kardashian accessorized with a statement necklace, metallic clutch and snakeskin platforms.

Both ladies look pretty lovely, but we want to know: Whose McQueen dress do you prefer? Vote in our poll below!

How can People even compare these two? A tramp vs. a Duchess? Kate has the style and grace that Kim could only wish she could have. The only thing Kim can do is hooker-fy her outfits. Shame on People for comparing the two.

This is a bit of a loaded question, don’t ya think? An educated, demure princess vs. attention seeker

Of course people are going to say Kate because we all hate the Kardashians. But honestly Kim looks way better. I’m in love with her heels. Kim looks happy and healthier. Kate looks miserable lately. She needs to start eating, she look so sick and unhealthy.

I’m sorry but you just cannot compare these two. Kate is soooo much classier than Kim will ever be, so to compare them is crazy.
