It’s impossible not to draw parallels betweens the two looks Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts wore to a screening of The Reluctant Fundamentalist (and the cocktail party that followed) at this year’s Venice Film Festival. The actresses, who already have strikingly similar hair, both arrived in tawny curve-hugging gowns with lacy overlays and strategically-placed sheer panels.
Of course, upon closer inspection, there are some very obvious differences between the two dresses. Kate’s, made by Atelier Versace, is a little more sexy due to its more form-fitting silhouette and single asymmetrical strap. It’s also a bit darker in color than Naomi’s—a light tan Marchesa design that she paired with a deep red lip and chandelier earrings. These accessoires gave her outfit a more classic, Old Hollywood vibe than Hudson’s brand of bombshell glamour.
There’s no way of knowing whether the two stars themselves noticed that their red carpet ensembles resembled each other’s. But, if they did, it clearly wasn’t an issue. The pair took time to pose together during the event, and the resulting photos have given us ample opportunity to inspect the neutral-hued dresses side by side. We’ve been staring at them all morning and into the afternoon…and still can’t pick a favorite. So we shopped each (slightly different) piece online instead.
