Grammys 2013 red carpet

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:
"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.
Carrie Underwood was also in Cavalli, with an embroidered bodice and a sheer skirt. Check out that killer bling--her necklace is 381 carats!
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.
Thank goodness for Kimbra, who broke up all of the black on the carpet in this ridiculously whimsical number by Aussie designer Jamie Lee.
"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!"
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.
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."
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."
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?
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!

Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.
From Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe on Friends to Blair and Serena on Gossip Girl, here are the most memorable wedding dresses to grace the small screen.
Kate Middleton likes outlet malls too.
Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.
Autumn’s just a few short months away, and we’ve got sweaters, coats and booties on our minds! Below are the first things we’ll be buying (or have already bought!) to kick off next season.
Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?
You could breeze through the rest of summer with the same sheer balm and nude gloss you always wear. Or you could throw caution to the wind and try one of these superfun, superbright lipstick shades we saw on the spring runways. True red, orchid purple, neon orange—these lipsticks are as bold as they are beautiful.
To say Cara Delevingne is trending is an understatement: Her brows are a hot Google search term, she has around 2.8 million (and growing) Instagram followers, and it’s a challenge to find a Pinterest board without her on it. She’s the girl everyone wants to look like (and be BFF with, too). Check out her best beauty moments—and pin away.
Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
Although summer is winding down and days spent by the beach are numbered, there is one gift of the dog days that we can take with us through fall: the pearl. Whether it is dotting denim or lining sandals, the lustrous rarity has become the embellishment of the season and is no longer confined to your grandmother’s jewelry box. For this week’s Most Wanted, we explore how to make your sartorial world your oyster with the ocean gem, along with some of our favorite “pearls of wisdom” to guide you.
These buns are haute! Pretty twists spotted on this year’s runway put a couture spin on the go-to bun.
It's far too often that "The Best Styling Tricks Evaaarrrr"-type stories leave you at a loss.
