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 VMAs, Twitter was awash with videos of both stars applauding each other during their acceptance speeches, as Taylor and Selena both picked up awards on the night. After the ceremony they hit the after-party, in two different takes on after-dark dressing.

For the late-night soirée at the NoMad following the awards ceremony, Taylor 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 jewellery, a silver crystal-encrusted mini bag and silver peep-toe sandals. Selena also wore a corset minidress, although hers was a little less girlish, a little more bombshell. She accessorised her jewel-tone purple satin dress with a black leather shoulder bag adorned with silver tassels and black court pumps featuring ankle straps.
Despite the contrasting colours and fabrics, the friends’ dresses were alike in their cinching silhouettes. Are you even best friends if your party dresses aren’t coordinated?
