We rate the dresses worn by music's hottest stars

Of all the awards shows, the Grammys usually showcase the most questionable red-carpet attire, but this year music did fashion proud. From sparkling minis to Oscar-worthy gowns, there was hardly a train wreck in sight, unless you count a certain parasoled faux pas. Here's a look at the good, the bad, and those who needed Jesus to take the wheel and drive them to a new stylist.

Easy Being Green
Rihanna is in no need of a fashion SOS with her sleek bob and emerald Roberto Cavalli stunner.

Whoa, Nelly!
Was Nelly Furtado channeling Björk's swan dress or a Burger King crown in this Cavalli creation?

Best in Show
Even without three Grammys, Mary J. Blige was the night's winner in this nude crystal-studded Michael Kors gown.

Short and Sweet
Although Hilary Duff and Ciara went mini too, no one did it better than Fergie in her tasty Badgley Mischka dress.

Um, What?
Did Imogen Heap mistake her landscaper for a stylist? All that was missing from this heap of eye pain was a pair of Crocs.

X-tatic for Xtina
Aside from her tangerine-tanned skin, Christina Aguilera looked vintage Hollywood glam in Ungaro.
