Sherlock Holmes premiered in LA last night and its female leads–Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace (of Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) walked the red carpet in strikingly similar dresses. Many actresses would treat this as a nightmare embarrassment from Hell… however, those actresses are unreasonable and awful. McAdams (in Marchesa) and Rapace (in Valentino) seemed to take it pretty well.

We weren’t struck by just how similar the gowns were until we looked a little closer:

So, which look was the bigger success? We’re fans of sleeves on the red carpet (they get so little play, after all) and especially bateau necks but Rapace’s halter is also flattering.
