While Fashion Week soldiers on in NYC, music's best gathered in Los Angeles and turned their sartorial selections up a notch. We've rounded up the most drool-worthy and outrageous gowns on the red carpet.
The Barbadian beauty captivated in a custom Alaïa gown and matching lip. But the talk of the (hair-obsessed) town was her mermaid waves. We're guessing her shaved head didn't go with the dress?
We're glad the former Destiny's Child kept her hair look simple. Her certifiably peek-a-boo mermaid gown is a lotta look all on its own!
Taylor sparkled in a J. Mendel dress in her signature white, and it looks like we haven't seen the last of braids! They'll be trending right into 2013.

This singer always adds a wow factor to her red carpet wardrobe, and usually this includes a new hot hue in her hair. We've seen hot pink, blue, purple, even green, but this year she went with an understated shiny black.
The deep side part isn't just a trend for longer wavy looks. This Brit made old Hollywood modern with shoulder grazing waves.
After bringing the house down at the Super Bowl, B surprised us in a mod pantsuit. Her extra long ponytail
This supermodel made waves when she cut her long locks off just before this year's Victoria's Secret fashion show. Looks like she's still in love with her curled bob!
She dropped jaws in Versace over a decade ago, and it's clear that J.Lo is up to her old tricks. After an infamous memo was sent out about baring too much skin, this sexpot stuck it to the man with her right leg.
This new mom look absolutely adorable in a floral Valentino dress and matching pumps.
Taking braids up to new heights (and lengths), we've gotta commend a woman who's willing to take a few hair risks.
The 381 carat sparkler around Carrie's neck complimented her wavy golden locks perfectly.
We're feeling this daring dress! Estelle's body looks banging and the crop top and matching high-waisted skirt is so fashion-forward.
Carly Rae Jepsen
We're partial, but we would have loved to see some wild texture to Carly's locks. This Roberto Cavali gown deserved some curls to top it off!
The Kiwi sported a totally extravagant, and slightly weird, gold beaded gown. We've gotta give Kimbra props for pulling off both the gown and the notoriously difficult bangs + curls combo.
Always hip, this lovely Brit looked understate yet chic, in a not-your-usual-award-show frock. We're into the new red hue she's rocking in her hair.
Craziest: Florence Welch
We love redheads in green! Welch had some slightly strange spikes on her dress, but she knew how to work it right into our hearts.
