It looks as though clocking all those hours at the gym has paid off (that, or superior genes). On music's biggest night, the stars took the 2016 Grammys red carpet as an opportunity to show off their hard-earned abs in the chicest way possible—with midriff-baring tops and cutouts.

Given Taylor Swift's previous track record of crop tops, it was natural that she led the charge in a custom Atelier Versace design featuring a crop bandeau and a high-slit magenta ball skirt, which nicely showcased her toned physique (above, center).

Others weren't quite as forthright, but rather, took a more subtle approach with side slashes and central cutouts. Swift's BFF (and date) Selena Gomez arrived in a custom sequined sapphire Calvin Klein Collection gown with cutouts on each side, while Kaley Cuoco opted for a white beaded Naeem Khan one-piece that placed a triangular cutout front and center.

Bella Hadid (in Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture) and Alessandra Ambrosio could have easily been mistaken for twins—they both showed up in slinky black gowns, complete with a plunging neckline and slashes along their ribs.
