Vote for your favorite now! 02 of 14 Rihanna Chris Pizzello/AP Newly-cropped nominee Rihanna electrified the red carpet in a cobalt-blue Zac Posen cocktail dress. She called her trendsetting cut "so different, so boyish" and claimed that she might go shorter in the near future. "It's much easier for me." 03 of 14 Beyonce Chris Pizzello/AP The multiple-Grammy winner walked the red carpet wearing the key shade of the night-blue. Her bedazzled Elie Saab design didn't prompt the talented star to tone down her jewelry either; the diamond cuff and earrings were all glitz. 04 of 14 Fergie Frank Micelotta/Getty "I've gotten more elegant over the years," says Fergie, who looked stunning in a bright yellow strapless Calvin Klein gown. "I still add a quirky touch, just for my own amusement," says the songstress, nominated for her single "Big Girls Don't Cry." GRAMMY POLL: Who Wins for Best Dressed? Vote for your favorite now! 05 of 14 Nello Furtado Chris Pizzello/AP A newly blonde Nelly Furtado wore a cobalt-blue gown by fellow Canadian Arthur Mendonca for the occasion. "I literally went into his studio and picked the fabric and he made it for me!" Furtado told E! on the red carpet. What radio hit does the double nominee sing in the shower? "I was just singing Alicia Keys' 'No One,'" she admitted. "I sing that one loud and strong." 06 of 14 Seal Lester Cohen/WireImage Nominated in the category of Best Pop Male Vocal Performance for the song "Amazing," Seal showed off his sleek white ensemble. But without wife Heidi Klum by his side, the singer had a little trouble rattling off his fashion credits. "This tie is from Japan," he said, checking the label. 07 of 14 Faith Hill and Tim McGraw Chris Pizzello/AP While Tim McGraw's fashion statement was a little bit country, wife Faith Hill's glamorous gown was decidedly more rock 'n' roll. The couple was nominated in the Best Country Collaboration and Best Country Song categories for their duets, "I Need You" and "If You're Reading This." 08 of 14 Alicia Keys Danny Moloshock/Reuters Nominee Alicia Keys walked the red carpet in a rich navy gown from Giorgio Armani, setting an ultra-glam tone for this year's Grammy arrivals. The singer has called Giorgio Armani one of her favorite designers and says, "I've learned that simplicity is often your best bet." The dress was simple yet sophisticated, giving her room to have fun with hair and makeup: Stylist Tippi Shorter created a Mohawk-updo that worked well with the dress's high neckline and flattered the star's toned shoulders; bold fuchsia lips finished the look with a blast of color. 09 of 14 Miley Cyrus John Shearer/WireImage Miley Cyrus looked all grown up in a Celine dress, which she accessorized with shoes and bag by Sergio Rossi. Cyrus, who is a presenter at tonight's ceremony, claimed she doesn't have a Valentine when asked about her love life on the red carpet. "I'll be in the studio," said the tween pop princess of her plans for the romantic holiday. GRAMMY POLL: Who Wins for Best Dressed?

Brushing off questions about his paramour Beyonce (not pictured), he advised: "You have to have a certain part of your life that's private or you lose yourself." 11 of 14 Taylor Swift Lester Cohen/WireImage Best New Artist nominee Taylor Swift revealed that her Jimmy Choos were actually borrowed and that the heart tattoo on her foot was a fake. The 18-year-old country crooner wore a custom-made gown by her personal stylist, designer Sandy Spika. 12 of 14 Natasha Bedingfield Francis Specker/Landov British songbird Natasha Bedingfield mastered Old Hollywood glam in a sweeping violet Reem Acra gown and soft retro curls. The "Unwritten" singer admitted that her Valentine's Day plans would take her back to the U.K. for a day with her hometown boyfriend. GRAMMY POLL: Who Wins for Best Dressed?

The 24-year-old up for his first Grammy for Best Dance Recording for the single "Love Today." He told E! that he wrote the song in his bedroom: "It was one of the demos I got signed with." 14 of 14 Joey Fatone and Lisa Rinna Frazer Harrison/Getty Dancing With the Stars veterans Joey Fatone and Lisa Rinna stood cheek to cheek on the red carpet. The fleet-footed pair also made the scene at the SAG Awards.
