Grammys 2014: Best and worst dressed
We saw gravity-defying hair, mother-and-son dressing and one batty hat, a striking wide-brimmed Smokey Bear-style worn by Pharrell Williams.
But fashion with a capital "F?" There wasn't much of it on the Grammys red carpet this year. In fact, it was kind of a bust.
One reason? Style divas Beyonce and Rihanna didn't walk the walk. No Gaga or Miley either. But Taylor Swift did, and she was the best-dressed of the rest, leading the charge in the metallic brigade.

Zebra stripes and lion heads, oh my. It's a whole African safari on a dress. Another cuckoo fashion choice, yes, and I kind of like it.

The gown is by Nicholas Jebran, one of several under-the-radar designers who were flying high on the Grammys red carpet.
