Madonna stood out in a black Givenchy minidress that looked inspired by a matador’s costume. The 56-year-old singer, who was with Diplo and Nas, also had on a black hat with a veil. Beyonce, Gwen Stefani and Miranda Lambert also chose noir for the big night.
But others – including Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen – opted for a brighter look. Beyonce chose to show off her cleavage in a plunging black dress that looked like it was borrowed from Jennifer Lopez’s closet.
The wife of rapper Jay Z had a long train on her dress and there was also an attached extension. The 33-year-old Drunk In Love chart topper wore her highlighted hair down in soft waves.
The Texas girl turned New Yorker turned – perhaps, according to TMZ – Los Angeles resident also appeared to wear almost no jewelry exception a pair of emerald drop earrings.
Perry – who is very hot off her impressive Super Bowl performance in Arizona a week ago – arrived separately from her on-again beau John Mayer. By her side was her publicist Ruth Bernstein.
The Roar sensation, 30, had on a see-through gown that went just below her knees. Beads hung off the gown. The designer was Zuhair Murad.
The Santa Barbara native told Ryan Seacrest she wanted to look like a ‘diamond’ for the Grammys.
Minaj didn’t leave much to the imagination with her getup. The 32-year-old Anaconda singer showed off her assets in a skintight gown that had a plunging neckline with a halter style top.

The bottom had sequined fringe that exposed her toned legs. Black cage heels added at least seven inches to the petite The Other Woman actress.At one point she posed with Perry until Ryan Seacrest pulled her away for an interview.
Lady Gaga looked like a modern-day Marilyn Monroe in her very glamorous and slinky look. The Poker Face singer wore a silver gown with a plunging neckline.
The best part of her whole look was the drop emerald necklace that drew in even more attention to her generous cleavage. The 28-year-old Bad Romance crooner brought as her date her collaborator Tony Bennett who she planted a kiss on.
Kim Kardashian oozed sparkle as she wore what looked to be a silver and gold robe. The outfit was attached only in the waist area and looked like it could easily slide off. The 34-year-old E! star said she was in Jean-Paul Gaultier and admitted she ‘loved how sparkly it is.’
By her side was husband Kanye West who again said he didn’t like to smile for the cameras. But he was smiling a ton during his interview. The E! star was not asked about her stepfather Bruce Jenner’s horrific car crash in Malibu on Saturday that left a 69-year-old woman dead.
Rita Ora was almost unrecognizable with her platinum blonde short haircut. The 24-year-old British singer – who used to date Rob Kardashian – had on a high collar silver gown that went to the floor and had a mermaid finish.
The I Will Never Let You Down singer appeared to arrive alone.
Stefani showed off her impressive curves in a very tight black outfit with a mesh top. Her super blonde locks were swept up into a modern bee hive. The 45-year-old Hollaback singer did not appear to be with her husband Gavin Rossdale, formerly of Bush.
Miley Cyrus was flashing the flesh in her gown. The Bangerz hit maker wore a black dress with several cut outs – some on the hips, some on the legs. Her back was on display too as there was nothing but a few strings holding her dress together there.
Sadly, her new beau model Patrick Schwarzenegger – the son of Arnold and Maria Shriver – was not seen with her. It did seem however that she took her mother Tish with her.
Taylor Swift was one of the few Grammy awards 2015 guests to wear a bright color. The Shake It Off chart topper wore a blue-green dress that had an opening in the front that revealed her very trim legs and a pair of daring fuchsia strappy heels.
Her blonde locks were worn to the side. On her eyes was the same blueish green color from her dress.
Rihanna, who arrived just before the show started, made an interesting entrance in a massive pink gown. As the cameras followed her out of her limo, she yanked up her strapless dress that looked like it could fit five children underneath it.

The Barbados beauty then struggled to walk in the designer number which had two tiers and looked like a Scarlett O’Hara gown on steroids. Once insider, the Diamonds singer oozed confidence as she posed nonstop, and even gave a nice view of the backside.
Ariana Grande was a breath of fresh air in her white and silver Versace gown as she posed with boyfriend Big Sean, who had on Saint Laurent.
Nicole Kidman joined her singer husband Keith Urban, who wore a ponytail. The American Idol judge had fun chatting with his co-star Seacrest on the red carpet. The ex-wife of Tom Cruise slipped into a Spandex dress that looked like it had no room to spare. Silver holes added some intrigue.
The 47-year-old Grace Of Monaco actress also wore her hair ironed flat and to the side. Pale pink lipstick added luster.
Jessie J looked like she was ready for the Oscars in this mermaid finish sheer and sequined gown. The 26-year-old Do It Like A Dude singer looked confident as she showed off her pointy white nails and strappy heels.
