Over the last few weeks, we've talked about the fashion at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards, and now we're moving in a slightly different direction by covering last night's Grammy Awards. The biggest names in music walked the red carpet, so of course, we have a bunch of amazing looks to discuss. Let's get right to it:

Top 5 Best-Dressed

Here are my picks for best dressed at this year’s Grammy Awards, in no particular order:

Giuliana Rancic in Alex Perry

Giuliana Rancic stunned in a tangerine-hued dress by Australian designer Alex Perry. The lacy halter neck gown featured sheer netting around the bodice, as well as some contrasting white trim. The E! Red Carpet host topped off her look with some funky Marina B. jewels are a dark smokey eye.

Ciara in Custom Emilio Pucci

Ciara showed us just how cool maternity style can be in this custom Emlio Pucci gown. Featuring head-to-toe embellishments, this long sleeved gown is the epitome of glam. Since the dress was pretty ornate, Ciara opted to keep the rest of her look low-key with natural makeup and a soft tousled 'do.

Beyoncé in Michael Costello

Beyoncé didn't walk the red carpet last night, but she did make an appearance in the press room rocking this Michael Costello gown. The mermaid-style sheer dress featured a white lace overlay that exuded plenty of sex appeal. Her asymmetrical bob and red lip made this look extra fabulous.

Taylor Swift in Gucci Première

Taylor Swift loves her sparkly red carpet gowns, and she looked amazing in this short-sleeved number by Gucci Première. The metallic dress featured a chainmail-like overlay, which toughened up the glittery look. Taylor completed this ensemble with drop earrings and a no-frills ponytail.

Cyndi Lauper in Alexander McQueen

Cyndi Lauper proved her style icon status in this Alexander McQueen cape. This look fit her eccentric style perfectly, from the jeweled gold collar right down to the matching peep-toe pumps. On anyone else it might have been too garish, but Cyndi pulled this ensemble off flawlessly.

Other Notable Ensembles

Whether you loved them or loathed them, here are four more looks that created a buzz on last night's red carpet:

Katy Perry in Valentino Couture

Katy Perry went whimsical in this fresh-off-the-runway couture gown by Valentino. This intricate tulle gown adorned with musical notes has a romantic yet fun vibe, which Katy paired with a lavish updo and chandelier earrings.

Madonna in Ralph Lauren

Madonna and her son David looked dapper in matching suits by Ralph Lauren at this year's Grammys. Madonna added her own unique touches to this menswear-inspired look, including a fingerless glove, a cane, and a grill (yes, a grill). Just like Cyndi Lauper, Madonna has a style that's all her own, and this ensemble proves it.

Ariana Grande in Dolce & Gabbana

Singer Ariana Grande donned an adorable '50s style Dolce & Gabbana frock for last night's ceremony. She paired the strapless floral print dress with pink pumps and her signature ponytail. Were you a fan of this retro black-and-pink look?

Paula Patton in Nicolas Jebran Haute Couture

Paula Patton went bold in a trendy zebra print gown by Nicolas Jebran. Aside from the wild print, the dress also featured two embroidered lion heads near the collarbone. Paula complemented the gown with an edgy updo and David Yurman jewels. Was this dress too over-the-top for your taste or do you admire her fashion risk?

Least Favorite Look

You know we can’t love everything we see on the red carpet. Here’s one look that I wasn’t a fan of at last night’s event.

Paris Hilton in Haus of Milani

Paris Hilton showed up at the Grammys in an embellished white gown by Haus of Milani that ended up being my least favorite look of the night. From the front, the combination of the high neckline and long sleeves looked conservative, but the back of the gown featured a sheer back along with plenty of sheer cutouts. Between the various textures and patterns, as well as the contrast between the front and back, I thought this dress had way too much going on.
