Last night the music industry convened in Los Angeles for the 57th annual GRAMMY Awards, and as always, pop stars showed up in their best high-fashion wears. While icons like Madonna, AC/DC, and Beyoncé took the stage and newcomers (ahem, Sam Smith) walked away with trophies, it was these four women who stunned on the red carpet.

Grammy Awards Best DressedRihanna
A frequent risk taker, Rihanna stole the show in her layered Giambattista Valli number. It’s the pretty-in-pink princess gown you can only wear once in a lifetime, and she went for it. Her simple hair and makeup were key to making it work.

Ciara’s beautifully ruffled Alexandre Vauthier dress hit all the right notes. A dramatic train was complemented by an asymmetrical one-shoulder neckline and leg slit. It’s official: glamour was alive and well at the GRAMMYs.

Gwen Stefani
Never one to do the expected, Gwen chose an Atelier Versace jumpsuit that was chic, cool, and most of all, rock ‘n’ roll. The subtle pop of red on her nails? A perfect finishing touch for the look.

Taylor Swift
Taylor’s ombre Elie Saab dress had an upbeat, mermaid-inspired vibe. More importantly, a high-low hemline revealed contrast jewel-toned heels that kept the ensemble from being too matchy-matchy.

Normally when it comes to red carpet fashion, all eyes are on the leading (and supporting!) ladies. Post–awards show, the Internet is abuzz with “What was she thinking?” and “Oh my, she really nailed it.” But now it’s time to pay the men of the Emmy Awards the respect they so deserve. In old-school formal outfits, a whole lot of blue, and some fresh takes on traditional tuxes, these guys dressed to impress. But who came out on top?

GQ cast its vote in a recent articleSeth Meyers in navy Valentino (pictured above) hit it out of the park – not only with his dapper tux and bow tie, but with his monologues too. Bryan Cranston in Ralph Lauren Black Label proved that when you channel Clark Gable, you win a boatload of Emmys.

And then there was Ryan Sweeting in a striking blue tuxedo jacket. “We really expected the night’s A-list TV actors to make bolder moves on the red carpet,” said Matt Sebra of GQ. “Not the tennis pro husband of that blond girl from the Big Bang Theory. But the actors didn’t, Sweeting did, and that’s why he makes the list.” (Hey Ryan, can I borrow your jacket? I promise I’ll give it back.)

Lupita Nyong’o. She’s the Oscar-nominated breakout star of the critically acclaimed movie 12 Years a Slave. But before the groundbreaking flick hit theaters, odds are you probably hadn’t heard of her. And now? All of America is tuning in to see what she’ll be wearing on the red carpet.

From her bright red Ralph Lauren caped confection at the Golden Globes to her bandeau Calvin Klein dress at the Critics’ Choice Awards, she’s topped just about every best-dressed list this awards season – not to mention been named one of Vogue’s top ten rising style stars. So while we don’t know what the Oscar envelope will hold come March, my money’s on Lupita winning best-dressed. Hands down.
