1. Rihanna. Say what you want about her fire truck colored-hair, but it looks striking against this all-white ensemble.

2. Nicki Minaj. Where would a 2011 red carpet post be without Ms. Minaj? This outfit’s a little toned-down by her standards, but it’s unconventional enough to warrant a mention here.

3. Ke$ha. This tulle get-up does nothing for her waistline, but I like the color.

4. Kelly Rowland. DEM CURVES.

5. Mary J. Blige. The animal print is a little overwhelming, but Mary J. Blige is fierce enough to pull it off.


Bonus: Beyonce. Not a red carpet look, but if you didn’t catch her performance, YouTube it immediately because after a long hiatus, Bey has reclaimed her status as the best female pop performer.
