Sienna Miller Channels Gwyneth Paltrow in White Cape Gown at Hampton’s International Film Festival: Style Showdown (VIDEO & POLL)

at 2:00 pm | By

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that’s true, Sienna Miller paid Gwyneth Paltrow a big compliment this weekend.

The new mom wore a long white gown with a built-in cape to the 20th Hampton’s International Film Festival over the weekend that looked strikingly similar to the white Tom Ford gown Paltrow wore to last year’s Oscars.

Though Miller didn’t attend the 2012 Oscars, it would have been near impossible to miss the buzz about Paltrow’s caped Tom Ford dress, which landed her on almost every best-dressed list.

Still, we can’t fault Miller for channeling Gwyn’s caped look — the elegant but unexpected look is the epitome of the effortless elegance that Paltrow is know for.

Like her sartorial muse for the evening, The Girl star kept the look streamlined with minimal accessories and low-key hair and natural make-up.

Despite the fact that the two dresses look nearly identical, Miller’s Alessandra Rich dress was in a more seasonal champagne hue and unlike the asymmetrical neckline on Paltrow’s version, Miller’s super-streamlined dress featured a simple high neckline.

The actress’ nude Prada shoes were seen peeking out of the bottom of the gown, but Miller amped up her neutral ensemble with double gold cuffs and a red clutch.


Both blondes’ caped column gowns are incredibly chic and elegant, but Paltrow’s streamlined Oscar look just barely won out for its perfectly tailored fit. Miller’s slightly less formfitting gown called for a higher, dressier heel to avoid the bunching at the hemline and fit the gown’s glam vibe.

Still, this style showdown was a close call, with both blond starlets wowing in their white caped gowns.
