It's Miley vs Britney in the red carpet battle of pop's brides-to-be

BEING engaged seems to be suiting pop princesses Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus.

The singers battled for the limelight on the red carpet in LA last night as they turned out for the City of Hope Spirit of Life Awards. At the event to honour Halston CEO Ben Malka, Britney (30) was joined by her husband-to-be Jason Trawick.

Britney wore her hair in ringlets which fell over her shoulders and showed off her glimmering, white, backless dress.

The X Factor judge teamed her floor- length Halston gown with YSL shoes, while America's sweetheart Miley opted for an edgier look.

The 19-year-old, who recently got engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth, arrived at the gala awards alone sporting a razor-sharp blonde bob.

The singer and actress wore a stud-encrusted Temperley top, teamed with a white maxi skirt and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The stars were joined at the awards by American Idol winner Jordin Sparks who showed off her curves in a figure-hugging black dress.
