Hollywood can be a small world, especially in the fashion industry.
We have seen instances where celebrities end up wearing the same outfit, sometimes at the same event. For a woman, that’s probably the worst thing that can happen to you during that event. We cannot imagine for a celebrity.
It is a good thing for fashion designers to have several celebs wear their high-end clothes for promotion but it puts the person on blast and leaves them standing, having everyone else decide who wore it better? That is the dreaded question many celebs are left facing when another celeb walks the red carpet or makes an appearance, wearing the same gown or attire that they wore once at an event.
Some celebs walk away with the win and end up wearing it better while their competitors are just left for comparison. Sometimes, the contest ends up being tough when the two wore it in an incredible fashion or the contrary; they both ruined the outfit and did it no good.
While it’s crazy to know that they wear the same exact designer outfit, sometimes it’s just a look alike but they look so similar that they can qualify as the same outfit. Regardless, who wore it better?
How exactly does the public determine who wore the dress better? A huge component does come down to the figure. Sometimes, they wear the dress and sometimes the dress wears them. It’s all in the figure and their overall appearance.
Let’s take a look at these 20 celebs who were caught in the same hot outfit and see who exactly wore it better.
10 Britney Spears and Ashley Tisdale
9 Miley Cyrus and Taraji P. Henson
First up, Miley Cyrus faces Taraji P Henson while wearing the same black cut-out gown. Miley showed up sexy yet sophisticated enough for her at the 2015 Grammy Awards. We know the 22-year-old isn’t afraid of showing a little bit of skin but this gown on her was the perfect touch to tone it down a little from her usual, skimpy outfits. As for Taraji, the Empire star decided to show off her curves in the black number while stepping out at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. It was the perfect occasion for the actress to flaunt what she’s got. Both stars killed it on the red carpet with totally different figures but we have to give it to Taraji on this one. Although good for Miley for taking it down a few notches, the 45-year-old’s curves owned the dress more than Miley’s slim figure.
8 Alessandra Ambrosio and Pixie Lott
It was probably pretty difficult for Lott to realize she was facing a supermodel wearing the same, exact dress. However, the singer still slayed the Versace black number while walking down the red carpet at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London. Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio wore the same, identical dress when she arrived at an event in NYC, almost a year before Pixie wore the sexy piece at her appearance.
The dress carried playful, modern features but both ladies wore it well. However, one wore it better. In this dress situation, Pixie definitely takes it with her black clutch and jewel tones. The dress just complimented the singer’s body better than it did for Alessandra.
7 Lady Gaga and Elizabeth Hurley
Lady Gaga loves to play with her looks as we have all watched and enjoyed. But before Gaga started entertaining us with her unique taste in fashion, there was someone else before who decided to tweak the fashion world a bit. Surprisingly, Elizabeth Hurley pulled off the same look Mother Monster wore two decades later in 2012. The actress shocked the world then when she stepped out in this safety pinned gown by Gianni Versace for the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral with Hugh Grant in 1994.
The sophisticated celebrity definitely decided to turn things up a notch in this revealing number. Although the dress did look stunning on Liz, it seems like it was designed for someone more “out there” and it looks like it was Gaga. The “Born This Way” singer for sure owned the distinctive look which means Lady Gaga takes the crown for the Versace piece.
6 Beyonce and Alesha Dixon
Beyonce obviously is the slay queen when it comes to red carpets and pretty much in everything else she does. So we can imagine how hard it would be if we were in the shoes of Alesha Dixon, wearing the same thing as Queen. In 2014, Bey wore the Gucci Pearl White Silk Cady Jumpsuit at the Chime For Change event while Dixon wore the same white jumpsuit at a red carpet appearance earlier this year.
The “Crazy in Love” singer paired up the Gucci number with black platforms while Dixon decided to dress it up a little more by wearing more jewelry including a Phoebe London body chain and an Eddie Borgo choker. So who wore it better? Not only is Beyonce a queen, but simplicity is sometimes better so with that being said, Bey keeps her throne.
5 Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale
These two already kind of look alike with their petite frames, especially when the two showed up at different occasions, wearing the same, exact dress. Selena Gomez appeared on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premier of Rudderless, sporting the prom look with Manolo Blahnik pumps and her hair pulled back. The singer looked stunning as the dress complimented her figure, just like it did for Lucy Hale when she appeared in the same dress when she stepped out at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, before Selena owned the look. Can we say b*tch stole my look?! The Pretty Little Liars actress paired up the mini with some studded Brian Atwood sandals; pretty opposite of the more toned down shoes Selena went for. Both girls looked adorable and the same that it’s difficult to distinguish who exactly wore it better. This could be a tie in our eyes.
4 Jennifer Lopez and Jourdann Dunn
These two stunners definitely showed off their stuff on the red carpet wearing the same Tom Ford dress. Jennifer Lopez chose the fitted number for her appearance at the American Idol XIII Kick Off event in January of 2014 while Jourdan Dunn slipped into the same dress to the Elle Style Awards in London later, but not too later, that following February.
The 44-year-old performer flaunted her famous curves in the snakeskin-printed number with white heels. The British model decided to go a little more edgy by pairing up the dress with these black ankle cut-out heels that complimented her long legs for days. This is a tough one as both slayed the Tom Ford look, however, the ankle feature of the cut-out heels is what made the dress more edgy and at the end, helped Dunn win the battle.
3 Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner
When Kylie Jenner appeared in this Body Glove one-piece while celebrating her birthday in Mexico, her mom, Kris Jenner, wasn’t exactly too stoked about it. Not because her baby daughter was wearing the skimpy bathing suit but because it was her own bathing suit the 18-year-old took to her tropical getaway. As soon as photos started surfacing of the birthday girl, Kris took to Instagram and posted a photo comparing herself to her daughter asking her followers the question: who wore it better? The Kardashians obviously have good genes and the pink swimsuit complimented both of them at very different times. However, we have to give it to mama Kris for her unbelievable toned figure and who is still keeping up with it these days.
2 Kim Kardashian and Millen Magese
All eyes were on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star when she arrived at the launch for her fragrance in Australia in this latex pink number by Atsuko Kudo. Kim Kardashian always likes to play with her looks in the most trendy way and this was a different route the reality TV personality decided to take. When you think of a latex outfit, you think crazy right? However, the fashionista’s curves and dress went pretty well together and overall, complimented her curves. The brunette beauty wasn’t the only one to slip into the unique dress though. Millen Magese was also seen wearing the pink number in her super slim bod. The two pretty much pulled off the same, identical look from head to toe, from their loose locks to their light-colored tone heels. The only difference was obviously their figure and it looks like Kim’s vivacious curves take the win.
1 Rita Ora and Irina Shayk
If you got it, flaunt it. That’s what Rita Ora and Irina Shayk were doing when they both arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party earlier this year. Ora had just completed performing at the award show and was feeling pumped up as she tweeted, "I just performed at the Oscars!" she wrote. "Time to party!" How could you not feel pumped up, wearing almost nothing? The singer went for a black Donna Karan Atelier gown for the night, which she knew how to work, not afraid to show off her toned curves and booty. Also that night came out Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Irina Shayk, flaunting what she’s got in an Atelier Versace gown and mesh bodysuit.
The two obviously knew what they were doing that night and not afraid to show it all off, not to mention, they looked identical and at the same event. The glitter features on Irina’s gown made her stand out a little more but the sheer dress on Ora complimented the singer in a sophisticated and sexy way all at the same time in addition to her red lip. Everyone loves a red lip. It’s obvious, Rita Ora stunned more with this look than Irina, having everyone’s jaw dropped.
