Oscars 2012: Emma Stone makes massive mistake and wears same dress as Nicole Kidman

Oh dear Emma Stone, it's time to sack your Oscars stylist! The Help star rocked the red carpet in a very similar dress to the one Nicole Kidman wore five years ago…


It was a case of celebrity dress déjà vu last night as Emma stepped out in a red gown by Giambattista Valli with a giant bow at the neck.

We couldn't help by draw comparisons to the Balenciaga fire-engine red frock Nicole wore to the Oscars in 2007.


Everything from the halter neck style to the dramatic bow make this dresses almost identical.

Of course the colour saves the day with Emma sporting a different shade of red.

The trains also set this pair apart, Nicole's was a slim extension of her bow whereas Emma's train was full and fabulous moving out from her skirt.

Both girls look gorgeous but we think Emma should have been more cautious, the focus should be firmly on how fabulous she looks not that she copied another actress.
