While the Grammys might not be held as sartorially high as the silver screen’s awards shows, what they lack in couture, they make up for in conversation-starting left-field looks, daring hairstyles, and crazy nails. This year there was a little more couture than usual, but also a greater discrepancy between those wearing it and their dressed-down counterparts. (We see you, Pharrell.) But that’s OK, because the artists who got a little more fancy than everyone else stood out (for the better) that much more.

Not shockingly, Taylor Swift did not go bold this year—or veer away from her now-signature white/silver palette. We get it, Swift: You are obsessed with Madonna’s “Ray of Light.” Or you want to look like one. Whatever the case, while she stuck with her usual color choice, she at least toughened up her look a little thanks to Gucci’s chain mail gown, a nice risk to see and surely not a comfortable one.

When Madonna hit the red carpet, she told E!'s Giuliana Rancic that her son David Ciccone Ritchie, who was by her side, picked out her outfit. The pair struck an adorable duo pose in matching suits and hats, with David accessorizing with patent spats and the increasingly popular lapel brooch for men. His mom, of course, went full glitter: She's been essentially nowhere without her grill as of late, whether photo shoots or Instagram—we wouldn't be surprised if she wore it under her mask skiing or during yoga.

Attention teenage boys of the world: Lorde is officially the kind of girl you can take home to your parents. Sure, she may be a little eccentric and they'll probably want to know why she wears dark purple lipstick ("GAH, Mom. It's called goth, OK?"), but the 17-year-old singer (who just nabbed the award for Best Pop Solo Performance) decided against glitz, glamour, and pantless leotards for her debut Grammys performance, and instead opted for A SENSIBLE PANTSUIT! One part Prada, one part Céline. NBD. The singer teased some pretty terrifying outfit inspirations last week, but she showed up in a crisp, sleeveless white top tucked into wide-leg black pants with a super-lengthy nylon belt. SO SENSIBLE.

Beyonce, Jay Z

NOBODY PUTS BEY-Z IN THE CORNER. Which is why anyone else opening this Grammy party would be ridiculous: Beyonce and Jay Z's "Drunk in Love" is one of the most important songs of the year, and their love cannot be seconded. The performance was literally chill-inducing, with Beyonce posted up in ocean waves of fog on a chair, reminiscent of Flashdance. Consistent with her early-'80s, Broadway-influenced leotard steez, Bey was dressed in a gorgeous sheer-cage combo leotard by Nichole de Carle, sparkly polka-dotted Saint Laurent stockings with back seams, and black Stuart Weitzman jazz shoes for full Ann Reinking realness.

Katy Perry

When Katy Perry and the Grammys come together, we expect jaw-droppingly amazing results. So we've been anxiously waiting all evening to see just what the headlining nominee would be wearing when she stepped onto the edgiest red carpet of awards season. Welp, we are proud to report that Katy did NOT let us down this year, wowing the crowds with her brilliant white Valentino gown embroidered with musical notes from the waist down.

You may remember this unique piece from Valentino's Spring 2014 collection, when it debuted three days ago at Paris Couture Week. THREE DAYS, people! Something tells us Katy has a personal stylist with some pretty sweet connections. The classic-meets-quirky attitude of the dress had us smiling when we first saw it, but we love it infinitely more on this most musical of nights.

Pharrell Williams

“Oh snap, I’m running late—let me just grab these clothes from the bottom of my closet and bounce,” Pharrell Williams said, 20 minutes before he showed up on the Grammys red carpet looking like Dudley Do Right-meets-Run DMC (though the interwebz is dead set on Smokey Bear). No, but really, he is probably the only person at the awards show who can say, “I woke up like dih.”

Even though the show has yet to begin, music's brightest stars are already lighting up the 2014 Grammys red carpet. BIG TIME. And little do they know that before the competition starts to heat up for RULL, an unannounced battle royale has been brewing on the sidelines—and the winner won't be going home with a golden statue. MWAHAHA. They will, however, be going home with our highly coveted accolades, so, you know, there's that.

It's not often that we come across two dudes with hair SO GOOD that we'd trade it for our own. It's even less often that the dudes in question are old enough to be our dads. (Most of us, anyway.) But tonight, both Jared Leto (who's a mind-blowing 42, FYI), and Ozzy Osbourne (who's 65), have given us ombré *ACHEM* homme-bré strands to envy.

'Tis the season for golden statuettes and designer gowns! We've gotten a little spoiled over the past couple of weeks in terms of red carpet looks, and luckily for us, the appearances at tonight's SAG Awards did NOT disappoint. We got our fair share of classic formalwear, glamorous gowns, and dapper tuxedos, but there were also some fashion risk-takers who completely stole the show. Take a look at some of our highlights, and let us know which ones are your faves!

JENNIFER LAWRENCE IN DIOR

Let's all say it together: WOWZA. After her polarizing Golden Globes dress (Is it chic? Is it a ripoff of The Little Mermaid?), we're pretty sure Jennifer Lawrence's 2014 SAG Awards dress will earn 100%-positive reviews. Her couture Dior gown was head-to-toe sequins, sequins, and more sequins, and she pulled it off like a BOSS. Seriously, who else could look that good in THICK, horizontal blue-and-purple stripes? And since the sparkling number was so dazzling on its own, Jennifer was wise to pick just one piece of statement jewelry—in this case, a pair of long gold and purple drop earrings. Her overall look might have still been a little reminiscent of mermaids (sparkling scales and whatnot), but in a much, much better way IMHO.

OK, so the fact that Kerry Washington is a flawless angel isn't exactly news. But you guys... She just took things to a new level. A level we formerly thought could never be reached. In the midst of her second trimester, the Scandal star hit the 2014 SAG Awards red carpet in a custom Prada high-waisted skirt and (wait for it) CROP TOP. Oh, AND the crop top also was completely open in the back. Can everyone join us while we all bow down to Miss Olivia Pope right now? It takes serious guts to bare your belly, even WITHOUT a bun in the oven.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
