Beyonce was the queen of the red carpet at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

The 'Drunk in Love' hitmaker donned a white lace Michael Costello dress with sheer detailing to work the cameras at the 56th annual awards ceremony on Sunday night (26.01.14) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The barely-there gown designed by the former 'Project Runway' winner hugged the star's curves in all the right places, while she set off the look with a tousled bob and burgundy lips.

The show-stopping dress was the perfect fit for Beyonce, who opened the show with a super sexy duet with her husband Jay-Z.

The singer stripped off to just a sheer bodysuit, glittering bra, skimpy thong and crystal-studded fishnets teemed with wet-look hair for the sultry performance.

Katy Perry was another standout on the red carpet in a pastel tulle concoction from Valentino's spring/summer 2014 Haute Couture collection, which only took to the catwalk in Paris less than a week ago.

The singer's hot-off-the-runway look was fittingly adorned with musical notes, with Katy coyly quipping to a reporter, ''Mr. Valentino knows me really well.''

While Taylor Swift might have walked away empty-handed from the Grammys, she made best dressed lists everywhere in a sparkling metallic Gucci Premiere dress.

The elegant ensemble featured a stylish split at the back, and Taylor accessoried the look with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery and Jimmy Choo heels.

Other notable triumphs in the fashion stakes at the Grammys were Ciara showing off her baby bump in Emilio Pucci, Iggy Azalea in demure Elie Saab and Kelly Osbourne in Badgley Mishka.
