The 57th Annual Grammy Awards took place at the Staples Center on February 8 in Los Angeles, California. The star studded red carpet was a medley of style ranging from the outlandish Madonna in a Givenchy couture Matador outfit with the fishnets and over the knee boots to the sweet elegance of recording artist Jhene Aiko who wore a soft pastel Alberta Ferretti strapless gown, Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch, Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and Ofira Schwartz rings. Then there was the stars who went with large voluminous ball gowns that filled the red carpet. Rihanna was a last minute arrival in a pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress and Chopard jewelry and there was the endless black cascade of ruffles by Alexandre Vauthier paired with Christian Louboutin stilettos that swirled around Ciara.
