Bare booties and breasts were banned at the Grammy Awards, but that didn't stop music's biggest stars from pushing the envelope. Here's what they wore:

MTV's House of Style host Karlie Kloss showed off her model bod in a bright turquoise cutout dress and a pair of strappy sandals, both by Michael Kors. Photos: Getty Images

Ashanti juuuust made the dress code in a sexy slit gown with a flowing silhouette. It's by Tony Ward couture, and it's pretty fabulous, don't you think? Photos: Getty Images

"I'm such a girl sometimes," Carly Rae Jepsen said on the red carpet before the show. "I tried on, like, eight different dresses before I knew. I just had, like a wedding moment…it was like, I do!" she said of her Roberto Cavalli gown. Photos: Getty Images

Carrie Underwood was also in Cavalli, with an embroidered bodice and a sheer skirt. Check out that killer bling--her necklace is 381 carats! Photos: Getty Images

When asked what she was wearing, Janelle Monae answered, "ideas. I'm wearing different ideas. I like to do my own thing." Does she ever--we so dig her signature tuxedo style. Photos: Getty Images

Rihanna went for a much more traditional look than usual--though she was noticeably braless!--in a custom Alaïa dress. "I love the color, I like the A-line," she said on the carpet beforehand. Photos: Getty Images

Kelly Osbourne looked sleek and sophisticated in a black cutout halter gown by Paule Ka. Photos: Getty Images

Thank goodness for Kimbra, who broke up all of the black on the carpet in this ridiculously whimsical number by Aussie designer Jamie Lee. Photos: Getty Images

"This is on the cusp of pushing the limits," Ryan Seacrest told Jennifer Lopez of her Anthony Vaccarello dress. "They didn't say anything about leg!" she retorted. "I thought I was being a good girl!" Photos: Getty Images

Alexa Chung was on the total opposite end of the spectrum, going demure and kinda casual in RED Valentino. Do you think her floral look is too summer-y, or do you dig it? Photos: Getty Images

Adele was also in Valentino and--gasp!--not black. Her red appliqué fit-and-flare frock is such a refreshing departure from her usual LBDs. Photos: Getty Images

We'll say this about Florence Welch's look: You can't accuse her of being boring! "Givenchy custom made it for me," she said of the dinosaur-inspired green sequined number, "which I'm incredibly grateful for." Photos: Getty Images

How are you gals liking the new, sexier side of Taylor Swift? Her off-white gown is by J. Mendel, and it's ultra-flattering. Photos: Getty Images

Speaking of sexy...he-llo, Kelly Rowland! "I still followed the rules!" she told E!, though admitted her peek-a-boo Georges Chakra gown had her thinking, "Oh dear Jesus, help me tonight and keep everything covered." Photos: Getty Images

Katy Perry was another celeb who pushed the limits of the "no side boob" rule in a mint green gown with a jeweled keyhole, which she said was inspired by Priscilla Presley in the 70s. Do you find it va-va-voom or TMI? Photos: Getty Images

And finally, we have Queen Bey--AKA Beyoncé--shaking things up in a jumpsuit with a black and white top. It's definitely different--do you say yea or nay?

Okay, ladies...who was your best dressed? Your worst dressed? Cast your votes now, then discuss!

    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.

    Cool wedding beauty ideas

    It’s time for bridal beauty to loosen up. Hair doesn’t have to be tightly wound, makeup perfectly contoured, and nails French manicured (on this last point, really, please don’t). You can, in fact, look gorgeously and timelessly cool at your wedding. Here’s how.
