Oh ladies, we've got a doozy on our hands this time! Two gorgeous brunettes -- Kate Beckinsale and Kim Kardashian -- each strutted their stuff in the same Nina Ricci gown on red carpets on opposite sides of the globe. Question is ... did the actress or the reality star wear it better?

Last May, Kate Beckinsale donned the fabulous, ruffled Nina Ricci number for the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or Award Closing Ceremony. The "Whiteout" star paired her silk gown with diamond chandelier earrings, a diamond bracelet, and soft, wavy tresses.
Just last week, Faceoff repeat offender Kim Kardashian rocked the same strapless Fall 2010 frock at InStyle and Warner Bros. Golden Globes post-awards bash. The "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" starlet accessorized with metallic disc earrings, a chunky statement ring, and a sleek updo.
This is a tough decision as both ladies look hot. Kardashian always cleans up well, the dress accentuates her curves, and her red lips add just the right pop of color. For me though, Beckinsale wins this one by a frill -- she just exudes Old Hollywood glamour, and her hair and accessories provide the perfect accompaniments to the gorgeous gown.
