Fashion face-off: Kim Kardashian vs. Demi Lovato

Andrea Kasprzak is a former magazine editor and full time freelance writer. Her work has appeared in Teen Vogue, Men's Journal, Allure, and SELF among others.

Which silver star shined brighter?

Demi and Kim both opted to showcase their assets in serious silver at the MTV Video Music Awards last night. Do you prefer Demi’s mini or Kim’s elegant, backless gown? Below, we weigh in on the silver dress showdown. Scroll down to see who sparkled the brightest!


KIM KARDASHIAN

Leave the surprises to Gaga and Katy, Kim knows her body and has made skin hugging gowns her red carpet signature. The newlywed may be receiving more attention for her recent wedding as of late, but her MTV Music Awards fashion choice is sure to put the focus back on her backside - just the way she likes it.

The backless gown was the perfect mix of shimmering and slink. Very James Bond-Girl. Kim kept her hair simple, worn down in a silky straight style with serious shine and her accessories minimal.

DEMI LOVATO

With its plunging neckline and glittering detail, Demi's spangled mini would be the ultimate New Year's Eve dress. The pretty pop star flaunted her enviable curves in this skin hugging number, smartly styled with cool accessories and two-toned hair.

Lovato's Louboutins helped to elevate the embellished ensemble to a more elegant level. The sky high stilettos featured disco ball-like detailing on the toes and a serious heel.

KIM VS. DEMI - WHO WON?

Our pick for the night's ultimate glitter girl? Kim! Next to Kim's seductively elegant dress, Demi's dress comes across as something you'd steal out of a showgirl's suitcase. Is the singer too young to know that you don't want to ever show everything off at once? Even for a night as fun as the MTV Music Awards, Demi's combination of cleavage plus legs plus shimmer winds up looking a little like an X-rated Christmas tree.

Even though Kim's covetable curves log plenty of tabloid time, we found her silvery style still a bit surprising. Long hair, megawatt sparkle, perfect fit - this is iconic bombshell at its finest. And a refreshing change of pace on the color-happy VMA red carpet last night.
