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?

As an advocate for fashion, I would say Pink wears it well. When one looks at a dress, you want to see how well it hangs, especially on you. The dress is flawless on Pink, and they both have a great body image. However, if you look closely the dress bunches up on Shakira, underneath the breast, in the midsection and in the lower region. Keep in mind that may happen when sitting, but they are standing up. I don’t think I need to say more. Pink is clearly the winner, besides with her hair short you can actually see the dress overall. p.s. Abbey honey, it is not that serious. Getting hyped up about healthcare I can see, peoples opinions about fashion no. As humans we observe other humans, that’s just what we do. Girlfriend get over it. Everyone else enjoy. Must watch Project Runway on my TIVO.

Pink is looking a bit old. That hard charging life style does catch up to you. Regarding the dress – Sakira. That girl has curves in ALL the right places!!!
