Caitlin McBride

Who wore what (and WTF?) at the 57th annual Grammy Awards.

WORST: Rihanna

The bejewelled orange crop top is Rihanna down to a T. The oversized black skirt looks like it was folded over one too many times on top.

BEST: Adele

This Givenchy gown is guilty of being a bit safe, but let's face it, Adele can wear anything she wants and we'll still love her.

BEST: Beyonce

All hail the Queen. Her sequin number during her performance will go down in Grammy history. Not to mention her red sequin gown while accepting her awards.

BEST: Paris Jackson

This fun and flirty number is something only an uber stylish 18-year-old can pull off and that she does.

WORST: Kristin Cavallari

634962862.jpg

It's yet to be explained why Kristin Cavallari and why she was wearing this far-too-much gown.

WORST: Chrissy Teigen

634976322 (2).jpg

There's just something about this dress I can't quite put my finger on. I want to like it, really, but I can't.

BEST: Lady Gaga

She should be top of the worst dressed list, but when you've already worn a meat dress and arrived via an egg pod, how do you top your Grammy arrival? By this. And you own it.

WORST: Demi Lovato

634972414.jpg

Plunging necklines done well are always welcome, but the extended keyhole design does nothing for Lovato's amazing figure.

WORST: Halsey

Years from now, fashion historians will dissect this look and try to understand its origin and meaning.

WORST: Carrie Underwood

634971808.jpg

Unflattering, ill-fitting and it doesn't any kind of identity. Next.

WORST: Katherine McPhee

634974548.jpg

The American Idol alum looks like she picked this dress up for a tenner off one of those knock-off Facebook dress ads.

BEST: Heidi Klum

My best dressed of the night. Again, it's unclear why the legendary supermodel was there, but who cares? She looks sensational.

BEST: Solange

635007574.jpg

To be a fly on the wall as the Knowles sisters were getting ready before the Grammys. Much like Beyonce, Solange can pull off pretty much anything.

When bad dresses happen to good people.

WORST: Celine Dion

634975848.jpg

Celine Dion gives a throwback to J-Lo's iconic Versace dress in 1999, but this one is solid green, made entirely of sequins and has an inexplicable bow around the waist. Points for effort though.

BEST: Giuliana Rancic

Normally this would land the E! host a place on the worst dressed, but we're desperate for a win here so she scrapes by.

BEST: Laverne Cox

635012998.jpg

At any other awards ceremony, Laverne Cox might be asked to leave for flashing too much flesh, but this Liz Hurley inspired number is Grammys perfection.

WORST: Girl Crush

*Frantically googles everything about Girl Crush to find out who she is and why she wore a balloon dress to the Grammys.*

WORST: Vaja

Mars Attacks: Grammy edition.

WORST: Emily Weisband

Too much and too little all at the same time.

WORST: Katy Perry

Katy, please. You're killing us.

WORST: Mya

For his big red carpet return, it was the perfect opportunity for Mya to remind everyone how gorgeous she is and that she clearly hasn't aged a day since Case of the Ex. Instead, she wore this.

WORST: Sibley

If the design was focused on one aspect - sequins, velvet, shorts, high slit - it would be a winner, but it's all too much together.

BEST: Anoushka Shankar

Only at the Grammys would this boho maxi gown be considered understated.

BEST: Andra Day

It's ridiculous and I wholeheartedly approve.

BEST: Jennifer Lopez

The red carpet was literally made for Jennifer Lopez to grace with its presence.

WORST: Faith Hill

You're one of the most successful country singers in the world with your choice of designers and this is what you choose to wear?

BEST: Kelsea Ballerini

One of the best dressed of the night in this Ines Di Santo creation.

BEST: Camila Cabello

One of the more unusual awards dresses I've seen in some time.

WORST: Sophie Beem

If Sophie stuck to the top half of her design, she'd be in for a winner. But no, she had to wear flares.

BEST and WORST: Joy Villa

The eclectic singer is tied. Worst for her denim Make America Great Again dress and best for her Grecian style white gown and statement bag. I'm confused too.

WORST: Keltie Knight

The tv personality looks like she raided Barbie's wardrobe.

WORST: Tinashe

Surely, there must be a satin shortage after everyone's outfits?
