The 2012 Grammy Awards took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 12. The ceremony offered the stars another chance to shine on the red carpet, and some of them took this literally: we saw lots of sparkly gowns. Furthermore, the little black dress was extremely popular, but we also so some bright colors, from a see through orange dress to a light elegant blue gown.
Below you have 13 looks that are definitely worth analyzing. Which one is your favorite?
Rihanna in Giorgio Armani
Hot and elegant – that’s how Rihanna looked at the 2012 Grammy Awards, in a jaw-dropping dress that she co-designed with Giorgio Armani. Pendant necklaces, a gold clutch and Christian Louboution shoes completed her look.
Adele in Giorgio Armani
Adele looked classy and confident at the 2012 Grammy Awards, wearing a Giorgio Armani gown. I can honestly say this is her best look so far, don’t you think?
Katy Perry in Ellie Saab
Katy Perry picked a blue dress for the Grammys, probably to go with her blue hair. She looked really pretty in an Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture gown, but I can’t shake of the feeling that she is too young to pull off this look.
Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

The pretty singer opted for a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Couture gown. The high neckline of the dress goes really well with her hairdo.
Gwyneth Paltrow in Stella McCartney

Paltrow kept it simple at the Grammy Awards and opted for a classy black Stella McCartney dress. I’m personally fascinated by her ponytail.
Carrie Underwood in Gomez-Gracia
The country star hit the red carpet at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards in a Gomez-Gracia gown. The purse doesn’t go with the outfit tough.
Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward
Kelly Osbourne sparkled on Sunday night in a dress by Tony Ward, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti, and jewelry by Pomellato. Still, I find her hair a little disturbing.
Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad

Kate Beckinsale hit the red carpet in a mini dress by Zuhair Murad with chiffon draping and a black velvet bow detail at the shoulder. She finished off her look with Ferragamo pumps and Sutra jewelry.
Alicia Keys in Alexandre Vauthier

Alicia Keys looked lovely on Sunday night, wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture black gown. She accessorized her look with Christian Louboutin shoes. Unfortunately, the ankle strap makes her legs look surprisingly short.
Anne V in Anthony Vaccarello
As much as I might love Adam Levine, I can clearly see why he is so into Anne. She looked absolutely stunning at the 2012 Grammy Awards. Her entire left leg was exposed in the tiny dress, and a big section of her stomach too. Thank God she has the body to pull this off.
Jessie J in Julien McDonald

Jessie J choose to shine at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, wearing a Julien Macdonald silver dress. The mermaid hemline highlights her beautiful figure, don’t you think?
Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier

I’m sorry, but my eyes are currently bleeding. Apparently even Jean Paul Gaultier makes mistakes. The gown is from the 2012 Spring Couture collection.
Lady Gaga wore a custom Versace ensemble at the awards ceremony and covered her face in fishnet. Odd, but I think this is surprisingly a ‘decent’ look for her, due to the history of her award shows appearances.
