Piper Perabo's Wedding Dress Is Michael Kors - and It's Also a Truly Awesome Fashion Faceoff With Jennifer Lopez

07/28/2014 at 12:20 PM ET

Piper Perabo’s wedding dress is a huge topic of conversation in the PEOPLE office. Yes, it’s a very unique bridal choice. No, we’ve never seen a veil that shade before. But that isn’t what has style editors buzzing. We knew the dress looked familiar, and we finally pin-pointed why. It’s the same striking style Jennifer Lopez wore to the 2013 Met Gala.

Perabo’s silver sequin animal print gown is a twin to the black-and-nude Michael Kors second-skin stunner JLo wore to the Punk-themed fashion fête. Though we don’t have a back view to compare to Lopez’s (it’s a large keyhole cutout), it appears to be the same design, just in a different, more bridal metallic hue for her NYC wedding to director-producer Stephen Kay on July 26. And to add to the faceoff fun, supermodel Naomi Campbell selected the gown in the silver hue, making it a triple star style showdown.

The Covert Affairs actress definitely gets the award for most unique celebrity wedding dress of the summer — and it’s always fun to see great minds think alike (though in this case, they accessorize somewhat differently). What did you think of Perabo’s gown? Do you think it’s a fun alternative choice? Who wore the Michael Kors design better? Sound off below.

It’s her day! She’s a beautiful bride and she could have warn”Jeans and tennis shoes” and still look great!

Not anything I’d wear but it looks good on her.

Definitely wear what you love on your wedding day, but to me i’ts not that flattering. Her coloring washed the dress out.

She got married in New Orleans in a fun, off beat location! It is perfect!

I love that Piper was trying to be edgy and also love the yellow vail with the color of the dress but since it doesn’t work as a wedding dress I say JLO wore it better and at a more appropriate occasion. Wedding dresses don’t always need to be conventional but my opinion is that it just didn’t work. Still a beautiful bride though!!

It certainly isn’t a dress I would choose for my wedding, but she obviously likes it and that is what matters. It certainly is unique! I also think the veil should have been a different color; something that matched a bit more with the color of the dress. But hey, whatever makes a bride happy on her wedding day! Good luck to them and wishing them a long and happy marriage.

It looks so different in black! I don’t really care for either, but it’s not my wedding eh. I think she looks like snake on the left!
