Last night marked the 87th ceremony of the Academy Awards. And for fashion lovers, the fiercest competition was on the red carpet. While Birdman may have taken home the Best Picture title, these five starlets shared the crown for Best Dressed.

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
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.

Last night, the biggest stars of television partied in Los Angeles for the Emmys. Red was definitely the color of the night, with Claire Danes, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks all choosing the striking shade.

On stage, there were hilarious presenters (check out Jimmy Kimmel’s roasting of Matthew McConaughey here), a surprising kiss between Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston, and a Breaking Bad sweep. But the real winners of the night were on the red carpet. See who made my top-five list below.
