Halle Berry For InStyle vs. Rihanna For Vogue: Who Wore It Better? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Rihanna had us all talking when she debuted her dramatic pixie cut at the 2012 MTV VMAs last month. But we shouldn't have acted all surprised by the close crop -- after all, it's basically the same haircut Halle Berry has had for years.

Rihanna and Berry go head-to-head (in a silly competition we just invented) in the Pixie Cut Challenge, i.e. Who Wore Her Pixie Cut Better.

Although she's a chronic hair-changer, Rihanna held onto her short 'do long enough to shoot the November cover of Vogue, doing her best hunched-over model pose in a red Valentino dress. Halle Berry also donned red for her new InStyle cover but managed to look much cheerier in her cutout dress. Two different mags, two totally different vibes.

In just one month, two major covers look remarkably similar. So who wins our Pixie Cut Challenge?
