RIHANNA
No one else came even close. Hands down, Rih wins best dressed. In a sea of kinda quirky, a little cute, and mostly meh, Rihanna’s gorgeous confection of an empire-waisted Giambattista Valli Haute Couture extravaganza dress is so refreshing, so perfect, and I can only ever see this on Rihanna now. She owns this. Pure magic. Bravo to Rih’s stylist Mel Ottenberg— AS

 

BEYONCÉ
Bow down! Actually, I’m not sure I love this look on Bey. The hair’s a little too long (a little flyover state) for me… and while I definitely appreciate Yoncé’s support of American designers on the red carpet (custom Proenza Schouler, what what!) I can’t help but feel like Bey’s giving us all a little Mimi. That fabulous hourglass, that forced smile, the stiff pose… it all reads like Mariah Carey. Who I love. But still. — AS

 

KATY PERRY
I think we can all agree that we know that Katy Perry looks good naked. This Zuhair Murad isn’t leaving much to the imagination. But we hear no one complaining. Also the hair… cute! — AS

 

NICKI MINAJ
Nicki wore Tom Ford, and the full look was really just dripping with the essence of a highly polished stripper. Sorry, girl. Maybe it was the gelled hair? The couldn’t-be-strapped-tigher cleavage? Abundant excess of side boob? The shredded lengths of the dress? Hmm. Hmmmm… –AS

 

HAIM
Major props to these sisters for getting low-key/high-style just right on the red carpet. Este in Chloe, and Danielle and Alana, both in Stella McCartney looked like the girl everyone always wants to be who just always has the right amazing, understated outfit, and looks effortlessly cool on a Wednesday. No shenanigans needed. While all three looks were gold, Danielle’s pale pink suit and distinctive middle part were the most eye-catching moment. — SSF

 

RITA ORA
I knew I liked this gown as soon as I saw it. The red carpet is what glittery gowns that look like disco balls were made for (as for the rest of us…sigh) and this one is a classic with perfect modern twists. The mockneck caught my eye immediately. Then, I found it it was Prada and it all made sense. Once a Miuccia girl, always a Miuccia girl. — SSF

 

CIARA
They say that fashion (and what works/does not) is all about attitude, and this look is one reason why. Sure, some of the twitterati were making loofah comparisons, but Ciara carried her shower-accessory inspired Alexandre Vauthier couture gown with the confidence of a badass betch. The cinched waist gave it some shape. If I were to make a comparison, it would be to a Black Swan costume, but in my mind, that is never a bad thing. — SSF

 

MADONNA
Oy vey. Aside from looking like Dolce & Gabbana of yesteryear, this is also an example of cleavage gone wrong! It’s always confusing when custom (Givenchy, in this case) is ill-fitting. Echem, and earlier on the red carpet, Madge flashed her fishnet-clad tush, reminding everyone that she might be 56 — but she’s a cool mom. — SSF

 

GWEN STEFANI
So elegant in that Atelier Versace, Gwenny! The nude lip is a nice departure for the singer, whose signature red lip was missing tonight. I think this lets her beautiful face, immaculate hair, and sexy-sophisticate Versace shine through. — AS

TAYLOR SWIFT
Karlie? Taylor? Who even is this anymore? It seems that Karlie Kloss and Swift are more than just besties, but rather, Kloss’s runway style savvy is serving as Taylor’s red carpet muse. The more time those two spend together, the more they seem to look alike. Taylor’s turquoise Elie Saab gown and purple heels are perfect for her pop-y rebranding. Dress = cute! The matching blond lobs = weird. — SSF
