In one of her few outings, Beyoncé stepped out this weekend in a curve-hugging haute couture dress by Kuwaiti designer Yousef Aljasmi. But months earlier, Keke Palmer wore the same gown when she attended the MTV Video Music Awards.
Palmer attended the annual ceremony honoring the best in music imagery in August wearing the attention-grabbing, long-sleeved dress on the red carpet. Wearing her hair in a bun and accenting the dress with statement stud earrings and gold-colored, peep-toe, block high heels, she also donned a a matching gold-colored clutch by Judith Leiber that was shaped like a gold bar. Additionally, Palmer posed on the carpet with a studded and gold-colored bag in the shape of a retro cellphone, which was also by Judith Leiber.
Fans eagerly fawned over the “GMA3: Strahan, Sara & Keke” host’s appearance.
“Cashy Look Mommah….💰💰💰💰😜😻😜😻😜😻😜😻”
“Keke, you had the rebrand of the century. And I am here for it. 💜🔥”
“Yessss💛💛💛💛💛 i luvvv😍😍”
Bey wore her dress with a statement ring and a super long braided ponytail positioned low on her head that grazed the floor behind her. Her shoes were high-heeled sandals, and she completed her look with chandelier earrings.
The star’s post garnered more than 50,000 comments of fans gushing over her look.
“Glow baby your so hot jay really lucky”
“You show up and show out‼️”
Once fashion blogs and the public realized the singer-actresses each wore the same dress, fans began to weigh in on who wore it better.
“Bey looks so much better on this dress 💛. “
“Keke…the length and the top knot set it off for me”
“Omfg they BOTH look amazing! but Beyoncé fills it out more so Bey.”
“Beyoncé all day everyday”
“They both look good of course but Keke silhouette in that dress 😍”
During their respective events, Palmer was celebrating her 26th birthday and Bey remarked on how moved she was by Perry’s new 12-stage studios.
“It makes me so proud, so full, I could not stop crying,” Bey said on Instagram after attending the event. “Thank you my Virgo brother for so much love and passion put into every detail. My prayer today is that you will take it all in. You inspire me to dream even bigger.”
