Black is all the rage

Apparently some stars didn’t get the memo, because clearly the color of choice on the red carpet tonight was black! From the shiny to the chic and everything in between, take a peep at these beautiful gowns and the sexy singers who wore them.

Black is all the rage

Carly Rae Jepsen

While we weren’t exactly in love with Carly Rae Jepsen’s shiny strapless Roberto Cavalli gown, we didn’t flat out hate it either. It just didn’t make us want to call her, if you catch our drift…

Black is all the rage

Carrie Underwood

Also rocking out in Roberto Cavalli, country cutie Carrie Underwood definitely came dressed to impress in her stunning mermaid-style black strapless gown. And how about that 381-carat diamond necklace she’s donning? It’s the perfect finishing touch.

Black is all the rage

Kelly Rowland

Who cares if she broke the dress code? Kelly Rowland can wear whatever she wants when she shows up looking as hot as this! The singer chose a Georges Chakra Couture halter gown with sheer cutouts for the occasion. She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Um, dangerously sexy!

Black is all the rage


Beyonce traded in her typical curve-hugging gown for a skin-tight black and white crepe pantsuit by Osman instead. Paired with a red pout and low pony, we don’t think she could have looked more flawless.

Black is all the rage

J. Lo

Wowsers, talk about showing some leg (and arm)! Jennifer Lopez obviously violated the dress code in this questionable little black dress by Anthony Vaccarello at tonight’s Grammy Awards. Her strappy Tom Ford heels were pretty epic, however.

Black is all the rage

Alicia Keys

There’s no doubt about it, this girl was definitely on fire at the Grammys! She rocked a smoking hot Azzedine Alaia black cutout gown with a snakeskin top that was insanely sexy.

Black is all the rage

Kelly Osbourne

The Fashion Police co-host kept things fairly simple in a chic black cutout gown by Paule Ka with gorgeous gold H. Stern jewels. Of course, Kelly’s purple pony added a splash of color to lighten up her entire ensemble.

Black is all the rage


What dress code!? Ashanti said to the heck with it and opted for a rather revealing, flower embellished black Tony Ward Couture gown anyway. Although it certainly made a statement, it didn’t do it for us… yikes!
