Stylists know they'd better find that perfect, one-of-a-kind dress for each of their A-list clients. The problem? There are only so many designers to go around. Inevitably, some celebs will wear similar-looking gowns at the Oscars. Case in point? These gorgeous A-listers. Which celebs wore it better?

Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Banks both went with the romantic, flowy look for the 2010 Academy Awards. The actresses sought out different designers — Banks in Versace, Kendrick in Elie Saab — but the aesthetic was the same.

Our winner: Kendrick, by a hair. The color just works with her gorgeous skin tone.
