High-Fashion Faceoff: Runway vs. Red Carpet

KERRY IN BROOD

At first glance, these seem like two different dresses. But no, it's the same drop-waist frock. Washington gives hers a unique vibe (less baby doll, more bombshell) by removing the sleeves and bow collar.

KIM IN GIVENCHY

Kardashian and Kanye West are BFFs with Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, so it's no surprise the reality star requested krazy tweaks made to her favorite gown from his most recent collection.

RIHANNA IN RAF SIMONS

We have a number of firsts here: first time there's an ensemble from a men's show in Runway vs. Red Carpet. First time there's a diver motif on the article of clothing in question. And first time mesh bike shorts were added to change up the look. (Not the first time, however, that the model and the celeb have the same haircut.)

ANNA IN EMPORIO ARMANI

Faris is brave enough to wear a shiny futuristic shorts suit, but apparently not brave enough to wear a shiny futuristic shorts suit with a purple metallic bow belt as originally seen at the show.

RITA IN REBECCA MINKOFF

When you're a pop star who wears outfits like this, this and this, of course you ditch the flowy maxi and adopt a slip-only policy. Way to make it your own, Ora.

JULIA IN DOLCE & GABBANA

The medieval cross pendant and earrings and those red-and-gold shoes certainly catch our attention. But then again, do you really need to do anything extra to get people's attention when you're Julia Roberts in a bright-red mini?

JULIANNE IN JENNY PACKHAM

"I saw it at New York Fashion Week and I died," Hough said of her revealing off-the-shoulder Emmys dress. Considering that love-at-first-sight reaction, it's no surprise she keeps the gown exactly as is, sheer skirt and all.

CLAIRE IN ARMANI PRIVÉ

Danes, on the other hand, apparently didn't want to show as much leg as her catwalking counterpart. The Emmy winner had the lace-embellished skirt lined (though she leaves the top part equally revealing). Side note: Think she got bob inspiration from the model's do?

KEIRA IN VALENTINO

Some stars might see a model in a sheer design and say, "I'll take it, but add a lining." Knightley is not one of those stars. She maintains the lingerie-revealing look of the black-and-gold gown, though opts to make it every so slightly less see-through.

DAKOTA IN VERSACE ATELIER

While the catwalker bares belly button, Fanning wears the top of the crystal-covered ensemble a bit lower and the bottom a bit higher for a look that's a bit more demure. (That's right, we just used the word demure on a bustier.)

CATE IN ARMANI PRIVÉ

You've probably noticed the most obvious change to the look (Blanchett removed that feather urchin at the neck), but look closely and you'll see that she also subtly transformed the open-coat-like silhouette into a slit-free dress.

LADY GAGA IN VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

Sure, she ditched the green shadow, zombie-esque complexion, pointy talons and red pumps, but Gaga still manages to one-up the model by ditching the blouse and adding a feather-embellished top hat and seashells dangling from her hair.

MILEY IN EMILIO PUCCI

Bare your midriff is right above pants are optional in Cyrus's style rule book. So it's no surprise her dragon-printed jacket shows more belly than the version seen at the fashion show.

HAYDEN IN GIORGIO ARMANI

There's a fine line between fashiony and costumey. For Panettiere, that line falls somewhere between bow-embellished tops and fingerless leather gloves worn with sequined caps.

MAGGIE IN DRIES VAN NOTEN

An LBD with pants? That was the designer's vision when he sent this look down the runway, but Gyllenhaal's vision varied just slightly. She skips the billowy bottoms and lets her legs (and all those feathers) take center stage.

AMY IN CH CAROLINA HERRERA

Adams loses one thing (the brooch), adds another (a bra) and makes one subtle swap (a peplum skirt, also by the designer, instead of a similar silhouette with plumes) and proves that going from runway to cubicle is possible.

CARLY RAE IN DIDIT HEDIPRASETYO

Another star who ditched the headpiece and long gloves, but kept the rest of the dramatic outfit intact, Jepsen goes all-out in this architectural purple mini.

ZHANG IN CHLOÉ

Who loves mixing and matching as much as we do? Ziyi! The actress tops the tiered skirt with a sheer button-down, combining two very different looks from the French label's show to make one that's all her own.

RITA IN EMANUEL UNGARO

Leave it to the fashion-forward singer to wear a daring gold-embellished dress just as the model does. Ora's only tweaks: rolling up her sleeves to show even more skin and ditching the leather boots for sexy black pumps.

HEIDI IN TALBOT RUNHOF

Anything she can do, I can do shorter. That's what we imagine Klum was thinking when she saw this glittery long-sleeve gown come out. In addition to significantly hiking up the hem, she also threw on a belt and removed the intricate collar.

DIANNA IN DEREK LAM

Could it be? A star who doesn't want to wear a crop top? Agron leaves the abs-flashing to the model and works a more covered-up version of the two-piece.

VANESSA IN NAEEM KHAN

When the gown is as dramatic as this beaded and feathered one, there's no need to change much to make an impact. But Hudgens adds just one finishing touch to make the dress all her own: a high slit.

DITA IN JENNY PACKHAM

This pretty white design was originally sent down the runway as a wedding gown, but Von Teese opts for it in gray and swaps the bejeweled belt for a red one to make it even less bridal-y.

BETH IN NAEEM KHAN

The catwalker gives the dress a throw-it-on-and-go vibe, thanks to her slicked-back hair and flat sandals, while Behrs ups the glam factor with polished waves, heels and a red clutch.

SELENA IN REEM ACRA

Looks like Gomez took our style prescription. And she was savvy enough not to change a thing on this straight-from-the-runway look (not even those red lace leggings).

JESSICA IN CHANEL

Chastain is a major fan of the iconic fashion house, but we're glad she had the sense to ditch the feathered headpiece and loose lace tights (and invest in some Static Guard).

ADELE IN VALENTINO

Some stars chop their hair before awards shows, others chop their dresses instead. Take the singer, who converted the printed floral gown into a knee-length dress for the Grammys.

JENNIFER IN LANVIN

It's not often you see the celeb less covered up than the runway model, but Lawrence out-cleavages her competition, also forgoing the bow and adding sexier shoes.

MARION IN DIOR HAUTE COUTURE

Sure, the two have very different dos and dissimilar shoes, but we're way more focused on something else: the variation in length. The original creation was designed to hit at the ankle, as seen on the model, but Cotillard's grazes the red carpet.

ROONEY IN VALENTINO

"Oooh! Me, me, me!" That's what we imagine Mara saying when this dark, dramatic, emo-ish handkerchief dress came down the catwalk. The look is so her, in fact, that she styled it similarly, right down to the basic black pointy-toe pumps and absence of jewelry.

JESSICA IN OSCAR DE LA RENTA

The actress also chose to accessorize with an orange clutch, but that's where the similarities end. For one, Jessica's purse was a fuzzy Roger Vivier one, but she also put her own spin on the Creamsicle-colored creation at the Golden Globes with to-die-for waves and $5.8 million of bling.

JENNIFER IN ANTONIO BERARDI

When originally shown at the brand's presentation, the embroidered sheath hit above-the-knee and featured a cream belt and funky orange shoes, but at the Directors Guild of America Awards, Jennifer extended the hemline and lost the waist cincher in favor of a metallic box clutch and peep-toes.

JENNIFER IN CHRISTIAN DIOR

Less than a week before Jennifer Lawrence picked up her SAG award in this strapless navy number, a slightly modified version (no train, extra ruching) of the haute couture gown was spotted at Paris Fashion Week.

MARION IN ZUHAIR MURAD

From a Lebanese designer's runway in Paris to a Parisian actress's closet in Hollywood: This full-skirted floral dress looks whimsical with half-up hair and ankle-strap heels, but edgy at the Critics' Choice Awards with a sleek do and nude sandals.

HELEN IN ROMONA KEVEZA

Is it just us or do the model and Helen Hunt have incredibly similar svelte figures? The only difference is that the Oscar nominee hits the SAG Awards with her hair down and adds a clutch, choker, bangles ... and a smile.

CATE IN ARMANI PRIVÉ

The catwalker in this red sequin gown may boast two dramatic black tassels and a wrapped sky-high pony, but Cate brings something else to the table at the AACTA Awards: va-va-voom cleavage.

NINA IN ZUHAIR MURAD

Another floral creation by Murad that Hollywood just couldn't resist. The Vampire Diaries actress ditched the mirrored belt and gold wedges, though, and wore her lace-and-silk mini with silver stilettos and an icy clutch at the NFL Honors event.
