We almost mistook Shay Mitchell for a Kardashian when she hit the blue carpet at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night. That's because the Pretty Little Liars star, 27, was sporting a pretty good knockoff inspired by the memorable white lace ensemble Kim Kardashian wore for her 33rd birthday bash at Tao in Las Vegas last October.
Kim also happened to be at the Teen Choice Awards collecting the surfboard for Choice: Reality Show with her younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, so she must have been flattered to see the ABC Family actress attempting to replicate Kim's lingerie-like look… or was she?
What they wore: A sexy, summery bustier top-and-skirt combo. Kim picked up the original form-fitting design in Paris at Ermanno Scervino as incentive to get her pre-baby body back after giving birth to her daughter, North West, in June 2013. "I was so pregnant and never thought I would fit this but it was a goal outfit and I love that I fit into it by the time of my birthday! Xo," Kardashian wrote on her blog. Meanwhile, Shay found a similar version of Kim's getup from the Mischa Collection. While there are slight differences, it's not a bad replica!
How they styled it: When you've got it, flaunt it — and Kim did just that when she put her assets on display in the lacy number. The voluptuous reality star, who was sporting wavy honey blond locks at the time, paired the two-piece with gold Tom Ford chain-link sandals and a colorful beaded clutch. The new mom opted for nude makeup and lots of bronzer. Meanwhile, Shay — who wore her hair in a messy side braid — accessorized her crop top and pencil skirt with pointy metallic Jimmy Choos and a matching handbag. Vampy red lips and matching nails completed her sultry look.
Judge's scorecard: Though Kim certainly has a few more curves than Shay, the dress works for both body types… depending on your personal preference. Kim earns points for wearing the sexy look first, which allowed her to proudly showcase her famous physique. But Mitchell just seemed more at ease while posing in the white ensemble. We love Shay's shiny heels, and her hair and makeup added the right touch of romance to her overall appearance. And though Mrs. Kanye West was certainly glowing at her birthday party, she was unfortunately a tad too tan for our tastes. That's why we have to give Shay the win this time around.
Who do you think wore the crop top and pencil skirt best?
