Many of the high notes at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night were hit pre-show. On the red carpet celebs showed up in an array of ensembles that ran the gamut from super-sexy to far out. Still, there were a handful of fashion themes that repeated over and over again. Here are our faves:

GOLD STREAK: All that glitters must be gold because there were SO many gilded gowns at this year's Grammys. Kim Kardashian wore a glittering Kaufman Franco gown with a deep V-neck and sexy slit. Selena Gomez wore a pale gold J. Mendel dress with a pretty pink pout. And LeAnn Rimes glistened in a sequined gold Reem Acra cinch-waist gown.

ANIMAL INSTINCTS: The Grammys red carpet was where the wild things were last night. Teen queen Miley Cyrus wore a metallic tiger-print Roberto Cavalli dress, while Katy Perry's Giorgio Armani wings took her look over the edge. Nicki Minaj and Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) both wore Givenchy--Nicki teamed her poufy 'do with a leopard print ensemble, and Florence went all Swan Lake in a bird-appliqued gown.

SLITSVILLE: Svelte celebs, including Heidi Klum, Lea Michele, and Ciara, were giving us a little (er, A LOT) of leg on the red carpet. Heidi wore a gold Julien Macdonald gown with a center slit. Meanwhile, Lea and Ciara both wore Emilio Pucci dresses with sexy slits-to-there.

BLUE VALENTINE: The hottest hue on the red carpet was blue with Jennifer Hudson (in Versace) and Selma Blair (in Lanvin) both wearing navy, and Natasha Bedingfield and Keri Hilson (in Basil Soda) rocking a brighter shade of the color.

TAILOR MERMAID: Showing their fab figures were Nicole Kidman, Rihanna, and Mya, who all slinked into hip-hugging, mermaid-style gowns. Nicole and Rihanna both wore Jean-Paul Gaultier, while Mya rocked a Jean Fares column dress.

Last night at the Middle Men premiere in Los Angeles, three lovely ladies all showed up wearing black outfits that had sheer elements to them. Selma Blair looked classic and pretty in a strapless black dress with a sheer overlay by Stella McCartney and paired it with a chunky cuff and burgundy clutch. Stephanie Pratt looked edgy and chic and a black body-con dress with a sheer top covered only by two strategically-placed black panels in the front. (How revealing! We can see her bellybutton ring!) We LOVE it. But our favorite was Laura Ramsey, who stars in the movie. She looked super modern and cool in a black jumpsuit with sheer lace panels, oversize gray clutch, and nude booties. We're loving her hair up, too!

+ Which sheer look do you like the most — Selma, Stephanie, or Laura?

P.S.: Look at the guy who photobombed Stephanie Pratt's picture ... he seemed to love her dress as much as we did, don't you think? Read More...

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