Whitney's best-dressed picks

Fashion designer Whitney Port loved the looks at the 2013 Grammy Awards. We asked her to break down the best dressed of the night — and no surprise, the celebs who took risks hit the top of the list.

Rihanna

Rihanna put the red in red carpet — literally — with her red Azzedine Alaia dress, Neil Lane jewels and Manolo Blahnik shoes. The whole thing just worked, according to Whitney.

"I always love a cherry red dress and love the monochromatic choices with her nails and lips being the same color," Whit said. "The back was beautiful with its cutouts. Her makeup and hair were old Hollywood and super glamorous."

Florence Welch

Florence Welch had Givenchy create a custom emerald green gown — complete with dragon-esque spikes. The quirky singer pulled it off with her gorgeous red hair and quirky personality, according to the fashion designer.

"I love jewel tones, and I love the matchiness of her outfit," Whitney told SheKnows. "I am also a sucker for sequins, and the matte sequins were so gorgeous. It was a cool play on spikes."

Katy Perry

Katy Perry ignored the Grammy rules when she picked out her Gucci gown — complete with lots of space for the "girls."

"I absolutely loved her sea foam green and the gorgeous detailing around her neck," Whitney said. "The dress was sexy — showed a little much — but I love that she feels comfortable flaunting it."

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift went the Grecian route with her white J. Mendel gown — and it was a win, according to Whitney.

"It was gladiator style but very pretty and flowy," she told us. "I like the touch of metallic within the stark white — another play on the cut-out trend."

Chrissy Teigen

Sports Illustrated supermodel Chrissy Teigen vamped up the red carpet with her lacy Joy Cioci number.

"Although her outfit was very simple, I loved the fact that she wore a crop top with a long skirt with a slit. I felt like I would totally wear something like that," Whitney said. "It looked to be really pretty lace, and it just fit her so well."

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland showed off her incredible body in her black Georges Chakra Couture gown. It was — hands down — one of the best of the night.

"Hers may be my favorite," Port said. "The geometric sheer detailing was so cool and interesting. It was chic and sophisticated but super sexy. Left a little to the imagination."

Couldn't agree more, Whitney!

I really thought that Rihanna's dress was nice...I didn't think that Katy Perry's dress was all that...I don't like the color or all the stuff at the top.
