Michelle Williams vs Carey Mulligan: It's a Fash Off!

06 September 2010

It’s no secret that Carey Mulligan is a dead ringer for Michelle Williams. Quite frankly, with those matching pixie crops, the cute-as-pie chops, and their comparably quirky roles, we were almost convinced these two were separated at birth. Of course, a little competition never hurt anyone and considering the pair both look downright marvellous, Grazia Daily sure ain’t complaining. But it was the pics of Michelle gliding before the flashbulbs at this weekend’s Venice Film Festival that really got us confuzzled. Take a look for yourselves:

Now don’t that seal the doppelganger deal? It certainly did here at Grazia HQ. And you really can’t blame us for doing a double take, especially as Michelle's glorious Jason Wu gown is giving us dress déjà vu - because we reckon it bears more than a passing resemblance to the Azzaro gown C.Mullz wore at Cannes earlier this year. Find the pictorial proof below:

WELL! We haven’t seen cloning like this since Gaga transformed into Madonna – and that’s quite the statement! Here’s what we have: an identical column style, similarly sleek silhouette, an adorable bow-like collar, capped sleeves, minimal accessories, a retro vibe...we could go on. So yes Ms Williams, we know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but maybe this is taking the Carey-copy-catting a step too far, hm?

As for us fashion-followers, this can only mean one thing: a style showdown! So we know it’s a toughie but if you HAD to pick, who’d ya say is this fash-off's frontrunner? Is Michelle trying to duplicate Carey? Or is it Carey copying Michelle? Oh, what a conundrum we find ourselves in! Either way, it’s provided a nice game to brighten up this drizzly Monday, which we've fittingly named ‘Guess who: Michelle or Carey?’  Why not give it a go? Trust us, it’ll keep you entertained for HOURS...
