Style Showdown: Nicole vs. Rachel in Collette Dinnigan

Posted on February 01, 2012

It’s purely coincidence that we’re doing two of these in a row. Normally, big-name stars don’t go out in the same outfit, in the same month. Maybe that’s changing, what with Cate & Reese yesterday and now Nicole & Rachel. Personally, we’re all for it. We never understood the thinking that Starlet X can’t wear a dress that Starlet Y wore once before. Oh sure, it’d be disastrous if they showed up at the same event, and certainly when a ladystar has a WERQ moment in a certain dress, then other ladystars would be advised to stay away. But two ladystars in the same month in the same dress, neither of them absolutely KILLING it and making the other look bad? We’re so there. And so are you.

Very pretty. We’re loving Nicole’s latter-day understanding that soft looks and soft hair serve her much better than the crazy fashion robot looks she was sporting for several years there. Marriage, it seems, agrees with her. Or at least, that’s what she wants you to think.

But wait! There’s more!

Rachel McAdams attends German photo call for her movie “The Vow” in Munich.

We covered this last week and scored it an 8.5/10 in a Pairs Division post. We stand by that. In fact, we’re thinking, as good as Nicole looks, Rachel is edging her out just slightly. It’s better against Nicole’s hair and skin tone, but somehow looks less fussy and a little fresher on Rachel.

But once again, we turn the final decision over to the Kittens who are Bitter. We ask you, darlings:

Who wore it best: Nicole or Rachel?
