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.
