However, this year was an exception.
There was an outstanding number of ghastly or just plain underwhelming dresses, leaving the best dressed list surprisingly barren. Of course, there were still the stunners as I mentioned before, but they were just a bit harder to find.
And now, in no particular order, the best dressed of the 56th annual Grammy Awards!
1. Beyonce Knowles in Michael Costello
Does this really need an explanation? Beyonce is flawless, as always, in a white, mesh, floral gown. If this was anyone else, we'd be blushing at the amount of skin showing in this long sleeved full length gown, but at this point we're used to it with Queen Bey.
2. Amber Rose in Naeem Kahn
3. Alicia Keys in Armani Prive
4. Anna Kendrick in Azzaro
Okay. Seriously, how flawless is Anna Kendrick? This Azzaro is stunningly sexy, while remaining classy and not showing an uncomfortable amount of skin. The embellishments are beautiful, and this dress anticipates the caged plunging necklines as one of the biggest trends of 2014. Plus, the metallic clutch and shoes add a perfect final touch.
5. Ciara in Emilio Pucci
I love when someone can rock a baby bump, and as we saw on Olivia Wilde at the Globes, shimmering bodycon is the way to do it. What better way to show off your growing bundle of joy than in a bodycon dress? And as demonstrated on the lovely Anna Kendrick, the caged plunging neckline is definitely going to be a thing.
6. Iggy Azalea in Elie Saab
7. Katy Perry in Valentino
8. Kelly Osbourne in Bagdley Mischka
9. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis in Mr. Turk
10. Rita Ora in Lanvin
11. Taylor Swift in Gucci
This is a recipe for disaster. Taylor Swift and Gucci are two things that I generally don't like, and hearing the two in the same sentence leaves a bad taste in my mouth. However, I could not have been more surprised by this combination. Taylor Swift looks simply ravishing in this sparkly Gucci number, and the mesh and bejeweled accents make this gown oh-so-chic. Who knew that this combination would be so beautiful?
Almost but not quite: P!nk
P!nk earned herself an "almost but not quite" spot on my best dressed list because of a few reasons. I actually love her makeup, hair, and dress. This lady knows how to do F-I-E-R-C-E. However, the dress was either in a wrong size, didn't fit her frame, or both. Either way, this amazing dress went to waste and looked terrible on P!nk. Her jewelry also bugged me a bit--she should've had simpler, more minimalistic earrings and bracelet or gone completely statement, but the style doesn't match her dress.
What are your thoughts? Is there anyone you think is missing from this list or unworthy of their spot?
