When actress Carey Mulligan showed up at the Dubai International Film Festival last night to honor fellow actor Colin Firth for his Variety International Star of the Year award, we couldn't help but do a double take. She looked SO much like another actress, Michelle Williams! And the comparisons go far beyond their shared platinum pixie cuts. Carey's black shift dress bore an uncanny resemblance to a Balenciaga frock Michelle wore last month at a screening of her new movie Blue Valentine. Not to mention, the "twins" even wore similar strappy shoes with said dress! Which got us to thinking...are these stylish stars sharing tips? Because this is not the first time we've noticed their similar taste in red carpet attire. Take a look...

Both ladies chose the same hot red hue for red carpet appearances this fall season. Carey wore a bright red Prabal Gurung halter dress to the British Independent Film Awards in London on Dec. 5, while Michelle chose the same color for her lacy Erdem dress at the Blue Valentine Premiere in London two months earlier on Oct. 15.

Did Michelle Williams take inspiration from Carey Mulligan's silver beaded top and black skirt by Preen from Nov. 4 when she chose her silver, white, and black Azzaro mini for the New York premiere of Blue Valentine on Dec. 7? It sure does look that way!

Both Carey and Michelle recently displayed their affection for beige and bows. Carey Mulligan wore a silk Marc Jacobs dress with a crystal bow front to a press conference for her film Never Let Me Go in Beverly Hills on Sept. 8, while days earlier on Sept. 5, Michelle opted for a similar look in a Jason Wu gown for the Meek's Cutoff premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.

Carey and Michelle both picked pockets and similar fabrics for their high-necked frocks in May 2010. Carey wore a purple lace Miu Miu dress to the Costume Institute Gala Benefit in New York on May 3, while Michelle Williams wore a Suno mini to a Blue Valentine photocall at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18.

Both girls glittered with embellishments earlier this year. Carey Mulligan wore a studded Christopher Kane dress to the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles on March 5, and a few months later on May 20, Michelle appeared at the Cannes Film Festival in this sequined Sonia Rykiel mini.

+ Sure, they look alike, but whose style do you prefer—Carey Mulligan or Michelle Williams?
