Who won best dressed? It's a tough call. Kaley Cuoco dazzled in a strapless Vera Wang chiffon gown with an exposed corset.

Katy Perry Gets Around The Grammy Dress Code In A Skin-Tight, Cleavage-Baring Green Gown

February 11th, 2013 1:02pm EST
Katy Perry
Katy Perry dropped some serious cleavage in a mint green gown at last night's 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

The singer appeared to have found a (ahem) loophole around this year's Grammy dress code, which CBS sent out a memo about on Wednesday. The request asked artists to forget about wearing any outfits that show too much skin.

The front of the "Firework" singer's dress caught lots of attention though, even from comedienne Ellen DeGeneres, who was photographed with partner Portia De Rossi staring right at Katy's chest (see the photo at E! Online).

Katy showed up on the red carpet with BFF ...

  The 55th Annual Grammy Awards got off to a hot start on the red carpet, where music's biggest stars gathered before the main event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Most stars adhered to the requests in the memo that CBS sent out on Wednesday, asking stars to tone their fashion choices down. The memo specifically asked that "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered"; also warning that "see through" fashions, visible thongs and attire exposing any part of "genital regions" was forbidden at this year's award show.

Most stars followed the rules, including Jennifer Lopez, who ...

HBO's 'Girls' Is Good - Almost Too Good

April 16th, 2012 2:15pm EDT
HBO's 'Girls'

If you haven’t heard of Lena Dunham yet, you’re due for an ear cleaning: Not only did she receive tremendous accolades for her directorial feature debut, “Tiny Furniture” (now available on Criterion and Netflix Instant Watch), but she’s been at the top of the Arts & Entertainment section for the past month ...
