After seeing double at the VMAs, Shakira took to the airwaves on 102.7 KIIS FM’s On Air With Ryan Seacrest and talked about her real life fashion faceoff with Pink, in crystal-studded leather Balmain minidresses. “The funniest thing is that my stylist told me, ‘You’re going to wear a one-of-a-kind dress, nobody else in the world has it!’ And I was like, well, you know, I like the dress I don’t really care if anybody else has it or not — but how was I going to imagine that Pink had the same dress! Luckily I was on the red carpet first, so technically…” she jokes of her wore-it-first status. And Shakira discovered that her style competition took a similarly light-hearted attitude to the incident. “I approached Pink and I was like, ‘Pink, look at us, look at us!’ And she’s like, ‘oh my god, this is the funniest thing, get out of here!'” Click below to hear Shakira talk about the night. Tell us: Would you be able to laugh off a real life fashion faceoff as well as Shakira and Pink?

Two of my favorite rock stars!!!

They both have a great attitude about the whole incident. Couldn’t have happened to two cooler women that don’t take themselves too seriously and know there are more important things going on in the world.

OLD NEWS Alisha!

I love these two! Just another reason to love these two ladies! This has happened to other celeb’s in the past who have been less than pleased and treated it like a bloody catastrophe! Glad to see some celebs have the right perspective on what’s really important in life. You both rocked it out ladies. :)

Thats Silly on

you people kill me. its not that People is “making such a big deal about this” (heather)…they thought it was interesting and something to share with the readers. Get over yourself….if you didn’t care about the situation, you wouldn’t have clicked to read the article. Stop being so harsh.
I think Shakira and Pink both looked great and love their attitude about it. They’re both great! I would laugh it off too if it were me.

Of course I would laugh it off. if people think fashion blunders are worth getting upset over, I hate to see how they deal with real problems.

They both looked great, and had different accessories so it didn’t look too “twinny”.
