Mandy Moore, Minka Kelly & Nicole Richie Style The Same Dress 3 Different Ways
Chalk one up for girl power, because this is a major win. Nicole Richie, Mandy Moore, and Minka Kelly wore the same dress to the same event, according to Cosmo, and they handled it like pros. What could've been a super awkward situation was embraced exactly for what it was — three trendy girls who looked great. These women aren't the only ones who have been stuck in a sticky sartorial situation, but they're definitely on the list of ladies who handled it with class.
Richie, Moore, and Kelly showed up to support new design label Dôen at the Los Angeles launch party, and all wore the same gorgeous dress by the designer. The breezy, light dress, aptly named Handkerchief, is stunning in both white (the version Richie and Kelly sported) and black (the shade Moore opted for). A dress that can look both effortless and polished at the same time is hard to come by, so I'd say all three made a great choice. No wonder they were on the same page!
According to Cosmo, the three were totally fine with the fact that they rocked the exact same look, with Moore and Kelly, who have been longtime friends, embracing each other with open arms — literally — when they realized they were wearing the same thing. The duo even snapped a bunch of photos together at the party, and were all smiles. Considering men basically wear the same suit to every single event ever, this is really NBD.
Moore and Kelly went for a beachy feel, styling the dress with artfully disheveled hair and subtle makeup, but two very different shoe options. Minka rocked an ankle boot for a laid back vibe, while Moore opted for a classic black heel that dressed the ensemble up. Richie also went for a less-is-more makeup look, but paired the dress with a strappy black sandal that showcased her dark pedicure.
Of course, things like this are bound to happen from time to time. Here are seven other times celebs twinned by accident and handled it like total champs.
1. Ciara & Miley Cyrus
Ciara rocked this cutout dress at the 2015 pre-Grammy party. She always one to take on a daring trend, just like the woman who wore a similar style.
The classic cutout dress was one of Cyrus's more conventional looks. Her version didn't have sleeves, but the cutouts are almost identical to Ciara's. Both ladies looked amazing.
2. Gigi Hadid & Olivia Palermo
Stomping it out in New York, Hadid wore this gorgeous monochrome look to promote the Victoria Secret Fashion Show.
Olivia Palermo wore the exact same dress just days after Hadid wore it in New York. I'm going to call this one stylish coincidence.
3. Nicky Hilton & Jaime King
When these two showed up in the exact same dress at a 2011 UK Style event, they got together to make the most of the situation with a silly photo.
4. Reese Witherspoon & Tina Fey
Royal purple looked gorgeous on the star at the 2016 Oscars.
Apparently purple was the color of the night, because Fey showed up in a dress of the same exact shade and a similar cut. Although the outfits weren't exactly the same, they were definitely twinning.
5. Caitlyn & Kendall Jenner
The Kardashians are all about matching each other, but Caitlyn Jenner joined in on the fun when she and daughter Kendall wore the same exact dress to Kanye's fashion week show.
6. Vanessa White & Sarah Harding
The Saturdays singer rocked the all white jumpsuit to her first ever F&F fashion show.
Harding wore the exact same thing to the same F&F show. It was her first time there as well. Both of them killed it.
7. Anna Dello Russo & Giovanna Battaglia
What are the odds of this outfit being worn at the same event? The Vogue Japan editor and W's contributing fashion editor just hopped in and made the most of it by taking this cool (and a little eerie) side-by-side photo.
What can I say? Sometimes fashionable minds just think alike.
