The Grammys has always been a favorite of ours as it allows the stars to play with their ensembles. Case in point: Rihanna in that pink poufy Giambattista Valli at the last Grammys. Sadly, the men such as John Legend, Sam Smith, and even little Jaxon Bieber outdressed the ladies this year. And while we would have loved to do a round-up of the best, we need to sit down and discuss these let-downs.

Taylor Swift may have bagged an award for Bad Blood, but her Atelier Versace look needed some saving. Looking like a Barbie doll gone wrong in her Dunkin Donut-colored two-piece gown, the only saving grace of this look would have to be her brand new ‘do and Stuart Weitzman shoes. We’ve seen her countless times in that crop top-ball skirt combo before. Plus, the pink hot pants peeping through her waist-high middle slit looked tacky. Even her Lorraine Schwartz choker did nothing for her overall look. Basically it was a bad combo of fabric, aesthetic, and styling.

Demi Lovato’s hips don’t lie. The songstress didn't only look stumpy in her Norisol Ferrari suit, she brought us over to goth territory with her body harness and rings. Suits with plunging necklines usually get our vote, but the odd proportions of this particular blazer made us cringe. Matched with that body-hugging skirt that showed her office-y black pumps, the look gets a thumbs down. To be honest, she looked a lot better in the pantsuit she wore to her Lionel Richie tribute performance later on.

Petite ladies always have it harder, but Anna Kendrick always finds a way to pull off her looks (like that time she wore Monique Lhuillier at the Golden Globes). Well, not this time. In a sea of ladies who opted for black sheath cutout dresses that night, Anna in Emanuel Ungaro fell short beside the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio and Bella Hadid—not just because the two are tall and lanky models. The combination of sparkly sheer panels, awkward slit, underwhelming hair, and glittery heels remind us of a red carpet look that would have been on the worst dressed list…in the ‘90s.
