Jennifer Lopez  jlo-grammys-2013

We knew J-Lo would push the limits.  After all, it was she who stepped out in the plunging Versace.  Could that outfit from 2000 be the culprit instigating the wardrobe advisory?   This year the pop diva decided to play with the rules…showing some shoulder and  a lot of leg.  But we must confess — her outfit was baffling.  Though her face was flawless, as always – the rest of her look erred on the overly assymetrical.

Katy Perry


Nope, no sideboob here.  But that was a very large frontal view displayed by Katy Perry.  The second skin Gucci gown wasn’t the worst.  But it was far from being the best.

Kelly Rowland


The former Destiny’s Child decided to go for it on the red carpet.  Clearly disregarding the nudity ban, she stepped out in a severely cut out number —  saying she’s no back-up singer!

Florence Welch

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Yes, we know it’s the Year of the Snake.  No, we don’t want to see it embodied on the red carpet, thank you very much!



Adele, we realize noone can beat you out of winning yet another award.  But this floral frock doesn’t say much for a night of success.



We didn’t spot Bjork who was nominated for a Grammy.  So we’ll look to Kimbra for our quirky fix.  We love that she took home an award for best record, but somebody needed to tell the New Zealand native it wasn’t an Ice Capades event she’d be attending.

Carrie Underwood


Among the sea of Cavalli gowns on the carpet, Carrie Underwood wins the prize.  It didn’t hurt that she accessorized in a huge way (was the necklace really worth more than the country singer herself?).  Oh, and her performance tech gown definitely needs its own twitter account.
