Rihanna definitely took more than “Four, Five Seconds” to get ready for the big night.  She brought all the drama in a yellow, fur-trimmed, Guo Pei gown…or robe.  Added accessories included a Guo Pei headpiece, Cartier jewels and Louboutin heels.


Beyoncé hit the carpet looking “Flawless” per usual.  She channeled her inner genie wearing a glittery Givenchy dress designed by Riccardo Tisci.  The almost entirely nude gown featured strategically placed jewels. Her look was completed with a high ponytail also drawing from the genie inspiration.


Jennifer Lopez attended in a daring Versace gown, with Donatella Versace on her arm.  The “Booty” singer also joined the sheer trend in a red gown that left little to the imagination.  A glittering red dragon swirled around the body of the dress.


Mr. & Mrs. Kanye West showed up in their signature black and white.  Kim donned a stunning white and gold number designed by Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli wearing a slicked back ponytail.  The nude gown was trailed by a white feathery train.


Top model, Kendall Jenner, also attended looking incredible!  She made her debut as the new face of Calvin Klein in a jade-green dress.  The crystal encrusted gown featured a lace-up side detail which displayed some side-boob action.  She topped off the look with sleek, straight locks.


Kerry Washington looked like a pretty little princess in pink Prada gown causing very little Scandal.  The satin gown featured a high-low hem with a sweeping train.  Intricate floral embroidery worked its way up the gown and she finished off her look with an emerald green clutch and pumps.
