The 2014 Grammys are here, and we're excited to celebrate some of the most inspiring and eccentric performers of 2013. From Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry to Lorde and Daft Punk, this year dropped onto our stereos some real musical gems from musicians with serious style bravado. And, as expected, the Grammys red carpet reflected the creativity and attitude of our favorite singers and songwriters. Inside, the goodness that is the Grammys red carpet. Let's just say it delivered.

Giuliana Rancic in Alex Perry

The E! fashion correspondent looked vibrant in an orange lace Alex Perry column with peekaboo paneling.

Sarah Hyland in Pucci

The Modern Family star wore a chic, simple black and white Pucci dress on the Grammys red carpet.

Kelly Osbourne in Badgley Mischka

The fashion commentator looked a bit glam and more than a little goth in a black long-sleeved Badgley Mischka gown with embellished shoulders and an oversized cross necklace draped over the back of her ensemble. 

Colbie Caillat in Ezra Santos

Colbie Caillat went for drama in a red mock neck gown with an asymmetric sheer panel across the bust. While we applaud her effort, the red feathers look ready to take flight from Caillat’s dress.

Paris Hilton in House of Milani

Hilton’s embroidered, sparkling white gown with mock neck and long sleeves looks more appropriate for polar vortex-affected areas of the country than sunny Los Angeles. We hope the strategic peekaboo panels offer some ventilation.

Bonnie McKee in Randa Salamoun

We’re not sure if the singer was channeling a haute couture version of the Little Mermaid with her deep blue strapless gown and red hair, but whatever the inspiration, her edgy, glamorous look seems to be working. 

Katy Perry in Valentino

Ms. Perry’s ethereal Valentino makes the singer look as if she’s been enveloped in her music. Love it or hate it, this frothy number looks like it was made especially for the Grammy’s red carpet.

Pink in Johanna Johnson

Pink showed off her curves in a body conscious red satin strapless gown for the Grammys red carpet. We know how this singer loves to make a bold statement, and her sleek gown is definitely a diva dress.

Madonna in Ralph Lauren

Madonna’s menswear-inspired Ralph Lauren outfit was chosen by her son, who wore a similar spiffy ensemble for the Grammys.

Alicia Keys in Armani Prive

Though the singer’s plunging neckline may be a bit daring, we think she looks absolutely gorgeous in the sleek, deep blue Armani gown. 

Rita Ora in Lanvin

The style risk-taker channeled Old Hollywood in a metallic green long-sleeved Lanvin dress. 

Miranda Lambert in Pamella Roland

The country crooner went for maximum impact in a red gown with a plunging neck by Pamella Roland. 

Taylor Swift in Gucci

Likened to chainmail, the shimmering material of Taylor Swift’s Gucci gown is utterly hypnotic. The country singer sure does love her sparkles.

Amber Rose in Naeem Khan

Amber Rose showed off her post-baby body in a curve-baring, golden gown. 

Anna Faris

The Mom star looked classically stunning in a navy blue strapless gown.  

Anna Kendrick in Azzaro

The Pitch Perfect actress went for a daring, cleavage baring  pastel Azzaro gown at the Grammys. For a more formal event, the dress might be a bit too ostentatious, but at an anything-goes event like the Grammy’s, it strikes the perfect balance between sassy and classy. 

Ciara in Pucci

Bold metallics seemed to be the watchword at the Grammys this year, and Ciara’s dazzling, low-cut Emilio Pucci dress took the trend to an extreme. We have total respect for anyone who can look this glamorous while pregnant.
