Has Lea Michele’s Red Carpet Crown Been Challenged?

Does everyone remember this gorgeous little number worn by Lea Michele for the premiere of American Horror Story back in 2014?

It certainly stuck in our minds.

This strapless teal velvet dress – complete with uber glamorous thigh-high split – is by Cushnie Et Ochs.

Lea owned the red carpet back in October, and we’ll bet that a certain British starlet admired it too.

Louise Roe was spotted at the Miss Universe Pageant in Miami this week, rocking the very same show-stopping gown.

Well, we can’t blame her.

The E! presenter opted for bolder accessories, strutting along the red carpet in some gold lace-up Louboutins. She chose a matching metallic oval clutch, and wore her hair pinned to one side.

Lea, on the other hand, kept it a little more simple, letting the dress speak for itself. With strappy, barely-there sandals and a mirror box clutch by her side, she left her long locks tumbling, naturally framing her face.

There’s no doubt that this dress offers a winning red carpet look.

The real question is: who wore it best?

We’ll leave you to decide.
