Talk about an eyeful on the Grammy Awards red carpet Sunday night.

There was cleavage galore, not the least of which was flaunted by Kim Kardashian in a Jean Paul Gaultier number that one tweeter referred to as Liberace's bathrobe. (Keeping up with Kardashian, her husband, Kanye West, didn't wear a shirt under his velvet suit.)

Nicki Minaj must have used a vat of glue to hold up her Tom Ford -- a black dress with a sparkly fringed bottom, Lady Gaga's metallic Brandon Maxwell was dangerously deep, and Beyoncé, in Proenza Schouler's black, swirly job was, um, up front about her assets, as was Madonna, who did a wacky matador thing courtesy of Givenchy.

If they weren't taking the plunge, many gals went to great heights. Leggy Taylor Swift's turquoise Elie Saab featured a tiny mini under an overskirt. Meghan Trainor, in lacy Galia Lahav, was all about that short, though she wore a longer sheer overlay.

Katy Perry showed off in an over-the-knee, see-through Zuhair Murad that was dripping with icy crystal fringe. She said she wanted to "shine bright like a diamond." Iggy Azalea flashed some skin in an electric blue custom Armani Privé with side cutouts. It fit like a glove. And speaking of fits, Jennifer Hudson kept it simple and body-con in a white Tom Ford jersey bustier and skirt.

Our favorite individualists? Why, style icon Rihanna, of course. She decided to go big, in a massive pink empire waist Giambattista Valli that she found on the Internet. The always-fashionable Gwen Stefani rocked an amazing Atelier Versace jumpsuit that featured spidery net and sparkly embellishment at the top. And then, there's Pharrell Williams, who accepted the Grammy for his anthem "Happy" wearing Adidas shorts. Nervy . . . cool.
