Picking a dress to wear to an award shows requires weeks, even months, of planning, but what to do when you turn up on the red carpet and someone is wearing the exact same dress as you? For superstars Pink and Shakira, they decided to grin and bear it at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards — even posing for photos together in their sexy, crystal-studded leather Balmain minidresses! We would never picture two stars with such different styles picking the same dress to wear, but they both look fantastic and unique. And kudos to them for taking it with a good sense of humor and complete grace! Tell us: Who wears their dress better?

HAHAHAHA!! I’m glad they had a great sense of humor about it, after it’s just a dress. They beat all the media/haters to the punch!
They BOTH look a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Why didn’t you just post the comment that they both look awesome and leave it there. And laugh in a good way alongside them. Why do you always compare? As sisters we can celebrate each other-I think their good humour is more mature than your attitude. I’m not worried or not whether you SHOW or reply to my comment. You’ll probably edit it anyway.

Alot of Americans i have met really love their nation, are generous and full of hospitality.

You are so caught up in competition like best and worse-dressed. We do not have to compete as women, we can afirm and still see the stunning clothes and designs that are out there. Comments like that place way too much preassure on women.

It is why I like meeting Americans over here but I have no desire really to go that nation even though I have travelled. Alot of Americans seem so flat out in being in this race of who’s the best. It doesn’t make sense to me. So highly strung and image oriented. Chill out. Eat an apple and go for a walk along the beach and just appreciate being alive and who you are.
