Close friends Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez first met in 2008, when they were each linked to a Jonas brother (Joe in Taylor’s case, Nick in Selena’s). Since then they have been one another’s biggest cheerleaders. At this week’s MTV Video Music Awards, Twitter was awash with videos of the stars applauding each other during their acceptance speeches, as Swift and Gomez both picked up awards on the night. They hit the after-party in two different takes on after-dark dressing.
For the late-night soirée at The Ned NoMad hotel following the awards ceremony, Swift donned a denim minidress by EB Denim featuring a corset bustier and a patchwork pleated skirt (fans are convinced she’s wearing a lot of blue right now for a specific reason). Her ensemble was accentuated by gold jewelry, a silver crystal-encrusted mini bag and silver peep-toe sandals. Gomez also wore a corset minidress, although hers was a little less girlish, a little more bombshell. She accessorized her jewel-tone purple satin dress with a black leather shoulder bag adorned with silver tassels and black high-heel pumps featuring ankle straps.
Despite the contrasting colors and fabrics, the friends’ dresses were alike in their cinching silhouettes. Are you even best friends if your party dresses aren’t coordinated?
