On any red carpet — and particularly a red carpet right in the middle of
awards season, when gown fatigue starts to set in — there are bound to be a
few stars strutting their stuff in similar style choices. But at Sunday night’s
Grammy Awards, there were more lookalike gowns than we’ve ever seen in one place,
proving that either the Grammys red carpet (in addition to other parts of the show) was a total snooze or that these great minds really do think alike. And while, technically, last night's winners
were the stars who left with awards, it’s the
style victories that really matter in our book. Let’s see which celebs took home the
best-dressed title when pitted head-to-head with a strikingly similar gown.
Nailed It: Bonnie McKee in Gustavo Cadile
Near Miss: Anna Faris in Fitriani
Not that funny lady Faris didn’t look beautiful in her strapless navy number,
but the casual hair and absence of jewelry left the Mom star’s look lacking in
comparison to McKee’s.
Nailed It: Ciara in Pucci
The sexy singer was positively glowing in her long-sleeve metallic gold
gown last night, complete with bed-head hair and the perfect amount of
cleavage. And it doesn’t hurt that her baby bump is absolutely adorable.
Near Miss: Amber Rose in Naeem Khan
She might be shiny and shimmery, too, but the model doesn’t pull off this patterned gold sequin gown with quite as much class as Ciara.
Nailed It: Beyoncé in Michael Costello
She may have shown her bad-girl side in black during her show-opening
performance, but the superstar glowed in this white wonder of a dress, putting
her lookalike gown to shame. (Plus, she’s Beyoncé. She wins by default.)
Near Miss: Paris Hilton in House of Milani
We have to give it to Paris: This is probably the best she’s looked in
ages (and maybe ever). But when you’re going up against Queen Bey, it’s impossible
to win, no matter who you are or how well the gown fits.
Winner: Pink in Johanna Johnson
Her flying circus performance felt like we’d seen it before, but Pink stole the red carpet in this red-hot, curve-hugging number that looked positively gorgeous with her bleach-blonde locks.
Near Miss: Tamar Braxton in Michael Costello
The fact that she couldn’t beat out Pink in her somewhat ill-fitting strapless red gown doesn’t take away from how smoking hot the singer looked, wardrobe malfunctions aside.
Winner: Giuliana Rancic in Alex Perry
The E! News host may have found her perfect color and shape last night in this fantastic, detailed column dress.
Near Miss: Colbie Caillat in Ezra Santos
Her peekaboo paneling may have rivaled Rancic’s, but ultimately it was
the singer’s severe high bun, heavy-handed makeup, and missing neck that made Caillat’s look less than perfect.
Tie: Alicia Keys in Armani Privé
This battle was just too close to decide. Looking hotter than ever in a
down-to-there cobalt-blue gown and totally rockin’ hair, the singer gave
Lambert a true run for her money.
