Not only was it a night to be recognised as a talented contribution to music, but it was also a perfect opportunity to steal the night with a show-stopping dress as the 2013 Grammys Awards kicked off last night.
The awards show last night pulled in some of the biggest names in the industry, and after playing safe at the Golden Globes and the SAGs – finally celebrities decided to up the ante and stepped out in an array of risk-taking gowns.

First up was Beyonce who swapped her usual sex siren gowns for an on-trend Osman Yousefzada graphic print jumpsuit and matching black killer heels.
While it seems that the 'Single Ladies' singer's BF, Kelly Rowland, was more than happy to steal Bey's thunder in a racy fitted dress with sheer panels - no clues for guessing where everyone's eyes were at.
While fellow songstress Rihanna went for maximum impact in a romantic crimson gown that emphasised her tiny waist, matched beautifully with tumbling honey-toned curls.

Also throwing a curve ball in the style stakes was Carly Rae Jepsen, who ditched her trademark rock chick wear for a sophisticated backless number in shimmering blue.
Meanwhile, the always stylish Carrie Underwood didn't disappoint in a strapless lace gown and dripping in diamonds.
