Following a strict no exposed underboob/puffy genitals edict (we’re serious), our favourite musicians pulled out all the stops to be subtle and provocative on the 2013 Grammy Awards red carpet.

Left to right: Our favourite of the night – Rihanna in custom Alaia couture. Swoon. Taylor Swift was predictable in J. Mendel, while Prince came in what looked like yoga pants and an embellished jacket over a hooded t-shirt. It must be hard to standout when you’re Beyonce’s backup dancer, but Kelly Rowland looked gorgeous in a cutout gown by Georges Chakra, while Florence Welch caught our attention in a somewhat bizarre dinosaur-inspired gown by Givenchy. We’re still deliberating this one – is that gown innovative and experimental or better suited to Halloween?

Left to right: We just loved Jessica Biel in Oscar de la Renta. Her hair, makeup and earrings were beautiful, as was her arm candy, Justin Timberlake. But we did a double-take when we saw Kimbra in a gauzy, fairy-esque gown by Jaime Lee Major – but not because we liked what we saw (hello Tinker Bell!). Alexa Chung caught our eye in her simple, sweet dress by RED Valentino, as did Allison Williams who was statuesque in Kaufman Franco. And finally, Beyonce was unexpectedly elegant in an Osman jumpsuit, paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and bright red lips.
