Here at PeopleStyle, we’re obsessed with Fashion Faceoff moments (and track them extensively!). So we know that two stars sporting the same design is a rare occurrence, on par with seeing a lunar eclipse. But it appeared that Taylor Swift and transgender model Andreja Pejic both wore such similar sexy, plunging, slit up-to-there Alexandre Vauthier gowns at two of the hottest Oscars afterparties — that Pejic even called it out on her Instagram!

“So I guess @taylorswift stole my look last night lol 🙅😋😂😋😋😅😂😂😂🙊🙈🙉 looking snatched boo!” the model wrote on a photo showing her next to swift, both clad in a plunging, high-necked, gold-collared black gown with a near-identical waist detail and slit. It looked like the key difference was that Swift chose to wear the halter behind her neck, while Pejic styled it wrapped around the collar.
We did our research, and as it turns out, they just look similar. Both tall, leggy blondes didn’t order up these pieces right off the runway, instead combing the archives for dresses that span a few years back.
According to a rep for the brand, Swift wore an Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture archive piece that was never produced, while Pejic went with a commercial version that was available for purchase back in 2013.

And even with the key differences between them, the styling was unique to each star. Swift teamed the look with strappy gold Giuseppe Zanotti Design sandals and a matching Jimmy Choo clutch, while Pejic accessorized with black heels and fluffy bag.

While, it’s too soon to tell how much “Bad Blood” will be spilled over the red carpet run-in, we have a feeling Swift may be forgiving. The two are friends, and Pejic was actually featured on stage during Swift’s tour last summer! But we need to know: which star wins this Faceoff?
