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.

While the dress is very striking-it really doesn’t look like a wedding gown to me. Piper is so pretty and I want to see a real bridal look!

it’s her day and she can’t wear whatever she wants. i like how people chooses just the right words in order to passive aggressively insult her choice. go piper!

Definitely NOT my cup of tea but if’s she’s happy….

I personally don’t find the dress to be bridal in any way, but at the end of the day, it’s her wedding, and she can wear what she wants! Although, I’m dying to know what she was thinking for a yellow veil… Good for her to buck the system! I hope she is blissfully happy with her choice and I wish her good luck in her marriage!

Am I the only one who thinks that she appears to be pregnant?

If she likes it, I love it for her. Yellow Veils will be alll over the place now!

I love Piper and CA, but this gown is hideous, and the veil even worse. Such a pretty lady, and she bagged herself on her wedding day. :(

I don’t like the dress personally, but I do LOVE that she went outside of the box with her wedding dress!!

It’s her day and she can wear what she wants but It is nothing that I would wear for such an occasion. It almost looks like it is a costume of some sort especially with that yellow veil.
