Apparently all of Hollywood got the memo: After CBS formally requested less risqué attire at the 2013 Grammy Awards, A-listers actually listened. And as a result, for the first Grammys in a really long time, celebs opted for full-on glamour -- versus full-on gaudy -- on the red carpet.
Granted, the two biggest proponents of wild costumes and shocking hairstyles, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, were both no-shows last night. But their over-the-top fashion and beauty was not missed.
Toning down the crazy outfits meant the stars went for simple, clean beauty looks, too. In fact, there were so many classically beautiful hair and makeup looks, it was like an early peek at what Oscar night might be like.
Red lips -- currently dominating the runways at New York Fashion Week -- stole the show, as Rihhana, Beyoncé, and Janelle Monae all sported bright, scarlet pouts. Jennifer Lopez's tight top knot and Taylor Swift's milkmaid braided twist were clearly the best updos of the night, especially in the sea of loose waves almost everyone else opted for. And while Carrie Underwood made headlines for wearing 35 million in diamonds (yeah, you read that right), we think her wow lashes deserve their own award.
What was your favorite hair or makeup look of the night? Chime in below!
