While stars like Rihanna and Fergie took risks in sexy, skin-baring looks at Sunday's Grammy Awards, it was the celebs who opted for more elegant, beaded gowns that wowed the most.
Carrie Undwerwood covered up in a long-sleeve white Gomez-Gracia dress adorned with silver sequins. She wore her hair in a loose ponytail to show off the gown's open back and her glittering drop earrings.
Instead of her usual wacky get-ups, Katy Perry shocked her fans with a feminine pale blue embellished Elie Saab design, which featured three-quarter sleeves, a scoop back and ribbon belt. Even her bright blue hair was swept back in a glam updo.
Taylor Swift stuck to her signature nude, sparkly look, with a stunning gold cap-sleeve Zuhair Murad Couture gown, which featured a high neckline and train. She accessorized with Neil Lane jewels and wore her hair in a sophisticated ballerina bun.
"It's one of my favorite dresses I've ever gotten to wear!" she said of the hand-embroidered creation.
Kelly Rowland had her personal style best in a blush-colored Alberta Ferretti gown with an illusion neckline and silver floral embroidered bodice.
