Plenty of brides definitely dream of copy-catting Princess Kate's iconic Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress. Those long lace sleeves, that dramatic train, the full and fabulous skirt... Gahhh! Sure, countless women would love a Kate Middleton lookalike look come their wedding day, but celebrity bride-to-be Emmy Rossum just took a page out of the Duchess of Cambridge's style playbook pre- the big day. The Shameless star just rocked Middleton's red dress from her recent Royal Tour of Canada to an equally as royal event &mash; her bridal shower!
Rossum has been keeping most of her wedding plans hush-hush since revealing her vintage round-cut engagement ring from fiancé Sam Esmail a year ago. She's been keeping us on the edge of our seat as we wait for her to tie the knot (we want to see that wedding dress, y'all!), but it looks like we've just hit the final countdown! Rossum just celebrated her super chic bridal shower in Los Angeles — wearing the same dress as the Duchess of Cambridge's look for the occasion!
Rossum arrived at her luxe lunch on Sunday, September 25 wearing a scarlet red frock by British designer Preen. Forget that whole 'wearing white to every pre-wedding party' trend — sleeveless and with an asymmetrical neckline, the dress kept the bride-to-be in the spotlight thanks to its bright, eye-catching hue. The actress paired her pretty frock with nude heels that peeked out from beneath the tea-length hemline, and a simple low ponytail. "Thank you @katiewarnerjohnson and @doriegolkin for the lovely lunch!!!" Rossum captioned an Instagram snapshot of her pre-wedding party, including the super cute hashtag "#youvegotesmail."
As it turns out, Rossum actually beat the Duchess in ye olde Who Wore It First? game. Middleton wore the Preen dress a day later in Canada, according to Us Weekly, accessorizing the look with matching red pumps and a crystal maple leaf brooch. But when it comes to Who Wore It Best?, we have to say it's a total toss-up. Both ladies look lovely in the look. But will there be another fashion face-off come Rossum's wedding day? The girl would look stunning in that Alexander McQueen gown... Just sayin'.
