Who Wore Her Light-Up Gown Better: Rihanna or Katy Perry?

Just a week after Katy Perry (literally) lit up the Met Gala in her color-changing CuteCircuit LED gown, Rihanna proved she too could electrify a party, taking to the stage at London’s O2 Arena Monday night in a sweeping black drop-waist dress lined with what appears to be rows of tiny red lights. It’s no secret that Rihanna and Katy are close friends–having even taken tropical vacations together–so we can’t help but wonder if the two are also sharing style secrets. We’re not sure, but we love that the pop star pals are so sartorially simpatico. Tell us: Who wore her light-up gown better? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Rihanna to me wore it better.

definitely rihanna

Katy Perry! He gown is delicate and beautiful, and the lights just add to the dress. Rhianna’s dress is too bulky and heavy looking. And the lights aren’t integrated into the dress enough.

rihanna katy perry still looks nice though.

Definately Katy. Rihanna’s kinda looks like she has random light pegs sewed in, Katy dress looks like the light are apart of the dress. They both look really nice.

MOST DEFINITELY KATY PERRY SHE LOOKS CUTE AND IT ACTULLY LOOKS LIKE IT INDENTED IN THE DRESS, RHIANNA LOOKS LIKE THEY JUST THREW A STRING OF LIGHTS ON HER

well, considering rhianna looks like a man no matter what she wears, I’d say Katy looks better

ESPERANZA on

i think katy wore it better I was a big fan rihanna before but she has gotten uglier by the day i thought she was the pretties girl ever but not anymore.

Rhianna’s is horrible!!! It looks like someone cut it out of a box and stitched it together!!!
Katy’s at least looks like a gown!!!!

Rihanna looks like an 80s video game gone bad. I give this one to Katy.
