Guess what gal pals Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea did to get our attention during yesterday’s MTV Europe Music Awards?

Yes, the British singer and Aussie rapper decided to do the unexpected — head to the event in long black gowns.

The two somehow figured that last night’s EMAs was worthy of more than the usual knee-length cocktail frocks or spectacle-making (not to mention, skimpy and skintight) outfits, so off they went in floor-grazing LBDs.

Now before you’re even going to say black is boring, do take a moment to give the pictures below a glance or two. As you can see, their gowns were fashioned with deep necklines, cutouts, and thigh-high (and in Iggy’s case, crotch high) slits — details that did not go unnoticed.

Rita graced the arrival floor in a classic Calvin Klein number finished with sexy ankle-strap Giuseppe Zanotti sandals in gold and black.

Iggy flaunted her assets in a one-shoulder gown from Dilek Hanif paired with red platform sandals.

Of course, the obvious question for you is: who looked better in her black ensemble? And which shoes win your approval?

We’re leaning towards Rita. While we don’t approve of the Marilyn Monroe-like hair and lipstick, we do like the simplicity of her Calvin Klein dress. We also think her sleek ankle-strap sandals are way sexier than Iggy’s red platforms.

What about you? Who’s your pick? And whose sandals do you favor?

Rita’s sandals are from Giuseppe Zanotti. If you want strappy heels that will fit the budget, try this style from Schutz instead. The “Celina” sandals feature very manageable 3-inch tall heels, super-thin suede straps at the front of each shoe, and metallic patent leather accents at the ankle straps. They’re also quite purse-friendly at $180 a pair:

As for Iggy’s fiery red platforms, those look a lot like the Jimmy Choo Greta. These shoes feature very distinct cutouts at the heel cups, self-covered heels that are 6-inches tall, and twisted front straps that sit on inch-thick platforms.

If you do the math, you’ll be walking in really steep 5-inch tall heels with these sandals. Do you think you can handle that?
