J Lo, Selena and Taylor look great.

Cyrus and Kesha need makeup artists and stylists.

OMG-didn't notice Kesha's 'almost NOT there' lower part of her 'dress'--if you can call it that!! I thought she looked so cute and fresh with no makeup and her hair pulled back. Maybe a teeny bit of makeup would have brightened her up--but...

did her 'cheeks' end up peeking out during the night??? LOL

They all look ridiculous.  Swift has a harsh lip line and a crooked eye. Cyrus can't close her upper lip over her teeth (it's perpetually open), smeared eye shadow is considered 'sultry'.

 

Please God send Max Factor STAT!

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
