Usually it’s Kim Kardashian who’s the first to get her hands on the latest look, but it appears someone beat her to the punch... and by nearly a year this time!

On Saturday, July 28, Kim and boyfriend Kanye West were spotted out in NYC catching the Tony-winning musical, The Book of Mormon. Stepping out in sophisticated black velvet, Kim donned a sweetheart Stella McCartney dress ($1,565) with a pretty peplum waist.

With Christian Louboutin point-toe pumps ($1,495) and gold cuffs adorning each wrist, Kim looked perfectly elegant and polished as she made her way out of the Eugene O’Neill Theatre.

Nearly a year earlier, Glee star Dianna Agron was seen in the same McCartney dress while making an appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman. Putting a Old-Hollywood, almost Marilyn-esque spin on the look, D sported a wavy bob, cherry lips, and classic YSL platform pumps ($795).

Though Dianna looks undoubtedly gorgeous, we can’t help thinking the dress is a little too heavy for a hot afternoon in NYC. Kim, on the other hand, looks sexy and luxe for an after-dark date with her man.

Whose take on the Stella velvet dress do you like best?
