Being both young and gorgeous and on the best-dressed list, it’s only natural that Carly Rae Jepsen and Taylor Swift are pitted against each other in a fashion battle.

Both ladies wore silver dresses at the recent MTV European Music Awards in Frankfurt, Germany. And now people are asking, who looked better?

Both gowns are stunning. Carly Rae Jepsen chose a strapless creation by Australian designer Johanna Johnson. We love the elaborate floral pattern on the shiny dress, and the sweetheart neckline highlights Carly’s beautiful shoulders.

Taylor Swift chose a sheer gown by J. Mendel. We’re crazy over the Art Deco inspiration. The see-through panels are unexpectedly risque for Swift’s girl next door image, and we say that’s a good thing.

It’s hard to choose who looked best, and we have some qualms about Carly’s posture and Taylor’s lack of accessories. But really, the two style leaders have shaped the evening wear trend this holiday season.
