We're not sure what's more shocking here—the fact that Nicki Minaj tamed down her signature OTT color-clashing style for the 2012 American Music Awards? Or that her stylist somehow forgot (or worse—didn't know!) Julie Bowen wore the exact same gown to the Primetime Emmy Awards just two months ago. Oops.

Let's be honest, the strapless highlighter-yellow gown from Monique Lhuillier's fall 2012 collection doesn't easily elude the memory.

We may never know how a red-carpet faux pas like this happened to someone who wore a robot suit (complete with butt speakers, might we add) at last year's extravaganza—but oh well, the damage is done. What we are curious to know, though, is which star wore it better? The queen of kooky or the Modern Family darling—you make the call!
