Sunday night was the biggest of the year in music: the 56th Grammy Awards at Staples Center in Los Angeles, honoring the best of the best among writers, producers and performers. But who should take home the trophy for best-dressed, and who's get-up was just plain weird?   This years winners include:

  • 1

    Katy Perry in Valentino

    This dress was perfect for Katy; it had all the frothy individuality that she's known for without being too over-the-top. Admittedly, it was not an instant love; but once it started growing on us, it grew quickly.

    Taylor Swift in Gucci

    Taylor would stand out in any crowd, for all that statuesque beauty, but this sparkling frock made her even more dazzling -- as if it were necessary.

    Ciara in Emilio Pucci

    Mom-to-be Ciara has a natural glow about her these days, and her beaded Pucci stunner brings it out beautifully. Its streamlined cut accentuates her growing bump perfectly and with an air of subtlety, despite the overall intricacy of the dress.

    ...While Madonna falls a bit short

    The multi-award-winning diva's son, eight-year-old David Banda, looks sharp -- he has the perfect amount of attitude needed to pull off such a bold look so young. And while his mega-famous mama could have made it work on her own, the mother-son matchy-matchy business is overkill.

    And the best dressed man was...

    Marc Anthony in a gorgeous black on black on black tux. Marc has always been known for exuding an air of subtle class, and this look fits the bill perfectly.
