Random Thoughts - Are these essentially the same dress?

It is purely coincidence that I happened to stumble upon these two dresses back to back looking at random blogs. It is also coincidence that it just happens to be a dress on Angelina Jolie and a dress on Jennifer Aniston. But I'm seeing  themes here: strapless, short, synched...

Yes , I realize they are two different colors, two different materials, the gathering is in two different places but I couldn't help but look at these two dresses on these two stunning women and think: Wow... there must not be a lot of variety out there if these two ladies would choose nearly the same dress.

My issue is this:
Both of these dresses are stereotypical of the actress's style. Yet I think you could swap the dresses on the two of them and you could still make the same statement. That's really weird. That doesn't happen too often with Angelina and Jennifer (in my opinion). So are the dresses just really generic?

I don't like drawing comparisons between these two women. I have a bias. So I don't like it when I'm forced to compare them simply because my reading choices put them side by side with one another (essentially). 

On a side note, I want Angelina's dress for my own. But like I said, I'm biased.
