Did the "Diamonds" singer think she was walking the red carpet or in line for a red velvet cupcake? Rihanna brings style and pizzazz to everything she does, but the Grammys weren't one of her best looks.
"Natural" Nicki Minaj
Nicki went au-naturel on the red carpet in a fitting black Tom Ford gown, with a plunging but classy neckline and slicked back hair to match. It was a toned down look for the "Anaconda" singer, who has walked the carpet with the Pope by her side at the 54th Grammy Awards
BEST & WORST
Madonna Moonlight as a Matador, With an Emphasis on Moon
Iggy Azalea served in a long blue dress with sheer, geometric cut outs, but her hair? Not so much. The do trended quickly on Twitter with comparisons to a Russian muskrat hat or curled goat horns.
Charli XCX Tries to Get too "Fancy"
Charlie XCX isn't known for not playing by the rule, but this time she may have gone a tad too far. The "Boom Clap" singer stepped out on the Grammys red carpet wearing a pink Moschino tuxedo, bow tie and pink fur wrap, which had some fashionistas seeing red.
Things That Look Like Other Things
Pharrell looked like a bellhop! Nick Jonas looked like Pee-Wee Herman! Rihanna looked like a shuttlecock! Everyone looked like something else on Sunday.
First, he wore the Arby's hat. Now, he's working at a hotel. The Grammy-winning singer wore a bellhop outfit while performing "Happy." Social media users quickly compared him to "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and Esteban in "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody."
