Both bred by the CW, it’s not that hard to believe Blake Lively and Katie Holmes, who are both chic sophisticated women with similar figures and TV upbringings, have similar taste in clothing — although Serena van der Woodsen and Joey Potter definitely did not.
This weekend their similar style was proven when Holmes stepped out in a dress Lively already slayed in nine months ago. Awkward.
Attending Moet & Chandon Celebrates The 2016 Young Women’s Honors, Holmes sparkled in the Michael Kors Collection Crystal-Embroidered Floral Lace Slip Dress, which clocks in at almost $8,000. With concealed bustier construction and a scalloped hem, the tan dress shows off the wearer’s slim figure—this time Holmes’s.
She paired the dress with matching nude pumps, wore no accessories, had her hair down and behind her shoulders, and went with dark eye shadow and lipstick.
Whether or not it was intentional (probably not), Holmes channeled Lively circa Fall 2016 New York Fashion Week. Lively shimmered in the same exact dress to the Michael Kors Collection Fall 2016 show. Lively went for a less intense look, with her famous long locks up, nude lips and light eyes. She also went with pointy nude pumps.
Somehow, two opposing interpretations of the same dress both work.
We simply cannot pick, so it’s up to you to decide: who wore it best?
