Do we have our first fashion faceoff of the Oscars? Well, not quite, but it’s pretty close. It looks like Whoopi Goldberg drew some inspiration for her Oscars look — a white collared shirt underneath a strapless black dress — from Julia Roberts’s polarizing ensemble at the Golden Globes.

The main difference between their styles? Goldberg accessorized with a long pearl necklace, while Roberts opted for an embellished belt. Editors had mixed feelings about Roberts’s Dolce & Gabbana look, and we have to say we’re pretty speechless with the TV host’s — a former Best Actress winner — ensemble, as well.

Maybe the stars swapped style notes, or maybe Goldberg just pulled from her own closet for her Oscars appearance. Regardless, we want to know what you think of the look. Share your thoughts below!

Julia looks ok &pulled together,but whoopi looks extremely sloppy and like she just pulled stuff outta the closet and hoped that it looked good ,the blouse is too baggy ,sleves look too long ….just a mess.She needs stylist badly.

Whoopie pie girl, I didn’t think you could possibly make yourself look worse than you usually do, but you definitely did just that. Wow, get a stylist, or an honest friend. You look like a train wreck.

Love both Julia Roberts, whom I thought rocked with the ensemble, as well as am thumbs up for Whoopie who cared to be her own stylist. No carbon copies here! No style police nor haters needed!

This was Whoppi’s style FIRST.

She ALWAYS wears a white button shirt and black….on The View.

It’s her signature style.

Whoopi honestly doesn’t give a rip about her clothes, fashion, etc. That’s just her. Unfortunately it clearly shows at the Oscars. Yikes. At the end of the day – I don’t think Whoopi will lose any sleep as to what the fashion police will say. She just does her own thing and doesn’t really seem to care. You have to admire her for that.

Don’t worry, Julia. Whoopie doesn’t come close to “swiping” your look ;)

Whoopi is actually a former Best Supporting Actress winner.
