Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton

This is a very a curious case of matching couture. Did both Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton stay at the same Moroccan B&B, fall in love with the hotel room carpet and steal some swatches for their dress maker? Or is this a Sound of Music style scenario? Something happened to both their real red carpet looks and a stylish fräulein fixed them up a curtain-created look?

Shockingly, both looks were created by the iconic house of Valentino, which either means Mr. Valentino also stayed at that B&B or he has a thrifty nun working in his shop.

Either way, this is a "lesser of two evils" battle in our book. The thick fabric on both these styles doesn't do much for the Academy Award winner or the Grand Budapest Hotel actress. Cate-the-Great's far tighter fit is more flattering, but we're meh on all the fringe. The "Tildaing" creator's baggy blouse looks like vintage maternity wear, but it is a cleaner style.

We're going to give this one to the Blue Jasmine star since she's already on a roll this month. Agree or disagree?
