Who Wore It Better: Rihanna vs Gwyneth Paltrow

Rihanna once revealed an obsession with actress Gwyneth Paltrow, mostly because of her fab physique.

But obviously, RiRi, who made the admission on Australian radio show "Kyle and Jackie O," is a fan of Paltrow's style, too, because she recently stepped out in the same designer dress that Paltrow also has in her closet.

What they wore: An orange crepe jersey wrap dress with one detailed shoulder strap.

When they wore it: Paltrow, 40, debuted the dress at a dinner in her honor held by Coach in September 2011. Less than two years later, 25-year-old Rihanna rocked it at Power 106's Valentine’s Crush Concert in L.A.

How they styled it: The Goop founder went for a fun look, adding a silver chain necklace, a snakeskin clutch, minimal makeup, and — most notably — red peep-toe ankle booties. For Rihanna, the slinky dress was a chance to show off her romantic side. The "Diamonds" singer channeled Old Hollywood with a slick of red lipstick, delicate gold jewelry, Tom Ford sandals, and a fur coat.
