Lily Aldridge and Karen Elson couldn't help but laugh when they recently turned up to a festive party wearing the same dress.

The Victoria's Secret Angel arrived at Elson's annual Christmas bash in Nashville, Tennessee over the weekend and was shocked to discover she was wearing the same dress as the host.

However, the models decided to poke fun at the fashion faux pas by posing for a picture in front of a Christmas tree while wearing the same black velvet number covered in red roses with flared sleeves from designer Susie Cave's fashion brand The Vampire's Wife.

"Great Minds Think Alike," Lily wrote on Instagram alongside the snap. "Love you @misskarenelson I'm sorry I showed up to your gorgeous holiday party in the same dresssss @thevampireswife (sic)."

In the comments under her picture, the British star made it clear she had no issue with the dress blunder by writing, "No need to be sorry! You looked gorgeous and it's a testament to @thevampireswife."

"The Annual Elson Holiday Party in Nashville TN," Karen wrote in her own caption to accompany the same photo. "The lovely @lilyaldridge and I wore the perfect holiday dress by the @thevampireswife that has been my favourite during this season! Susie you make magic @susiecaveofficial #doubleroses."

In the comments underneath Karen's post, Lily gushed, "Gorgeous dress with a gorgeous friend on a gorgeous night."

Their posts received reactions from Amber Valletta, Reese Witherspoon, stylists Rachel Zoe and Karla Welch, as well as Lily's model sister Ruby, who commented, "I honestly can't believe this happened. Hahah I love it (sic)."
