It's a sight to behold when Rihanna and Miley Cyrus are trying to steal the spotlight from each other.

At last night's amFar gala honouring Tom Ford (not a pop princess), the singers both opted for eye-catching ensembles with strategically placed designs to protect their modesty.

It's unlikely the legendary designer will be upset at their outfit choices as he dressed the singers.

Miley opted for a dominatrix style outfit in a black maxi skirt with black panelling, exposing her midriff. But even the leather couldn't protect her from a nip slip as she accidentally exposed herself as she left her table during the night.

Rihanna went for a white chiffon dress with cut-out detail and an embellished see-through mesh bra.

But their competition wasn't limited to their clothing as both seemed to have the exact same night, albeit at different tables.

Their red carpet poses are identical

And they both fought for Tom Ford's affections through the evening.
