It’s every celeb’s worst nightmare: to strut down the red carpet behind someone in the same dress. Especially if they’re wearing it better than you are.

At last night’s MTV EMAs that didn’t happen, but Carly Rae Jepsen and Taylor Swift both opted for shimmering silver gowns.

But who wore it best? Do we smell an EMA fash off?

Carly teamed her dress, which may or may not have been crafted from tin foil, with a gold clutch, just to ensure that she hadn’t underdone this season’s metallic trend. Her red nails and tousled hair added a classic finish to the look.

Queen of class Taylor Swift toned it down a bit, with yet another vintage inspired dress, which was pretty much see through, but who’s complaining? The floor length dress featured silver embellishments and was every bit as elegant as we have come to expect from Taylor. She did win Best Look, after all.

So what do you think? Who wore silver best?
