  • Best: Taylor Swift




    Not exactly a drastic departure from what she normally wears, but hey, Taylor Swift knows what she likes. And those lace sleeves are gorgeous. 

  • Worst: Christina Aguilera


    Something about this dress just says "old lady in Florida" to me. And the crazy self-tan job doesn't help matters.

  • Best: Nicki Minaj


    Although I think a smile would be a lovely accessory to this dress, I've gotta say: Nicki killed it last night in this gorgeous gown. Love that it's simply a beautiful awards-worthy dress in a (single) crazy color.

  • Worst: Justin Bieber


    Is that a leather shirt you're wearing, Justin?

  • Best: Carrie Underwood




    I'm not typically a fan of this color (unless it's on nails), but Carrie may make me a convert. And love a lady in a cap sleeve.

  • Worst: Brandy




    Too bad those glitter booties that match the dress exactly had to go and ruin flawless hair and makeup. Damn shame.
