It looks like long-sleeved, long gowns ruled at the 2011 MET Gala last Monday.

Below are three celebs spotted wearing pretty much the same silhouette that day – Hollywood A-listers Renee Zellweger, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Although they had their gowns commissioned by different designers, the similarities were hard to ignore.

SJP’s gown was from McQueen, Renee’s from Carolina Herrera, and Gwyneth’s from Stella McCartney. Who do you think looked most glamorous?

Before you decide, allow me to show you a couple more details. Renee’s exquisite Carolina Herrera had a really low cut back while Gwyneth’s had both a low cut back AND a really high side slit:

I think I’ll go with Renee on this one. SJP looked too covered up, while Gwyneth looked a tad too sexy for comfort. Who’s your pick?

Oh, and lest I forget, one more celebrity wore a long-sleeved gown that day – Rosario Dawson. Hers was a black piece full of sequins from Diane Von Furstenberg:
