The maid of honor dresses different from the bride.
The maid of honor dresses differently from the bride.
Which one is correct? Or both of them are?
It's a fill-in-the-blank questions appeared in my last English exam.
The subject and object were not originally "the maid of honor" and "the bride" but the pattern was certainly "XX dresses _________ from YY" (that implied we had to write something with the meaning of "different").
The teacher said that the answer was "differently" and "different" was wrong.
I googled "dresses different from" and "acts different from". They both appeared online and in ebooks.
Please explain to me whether it's correct or not.
