Aside from the performances, speeches and artists that composed the 57th annual Grammy Awards, one of the most discussed elements of any award show was the attire.

Many outrageous and gorgeous outfits hit the red carpet on Sunday. From sheer pantsuits to big ball gowns, celebrities and artists made their fans either shake their heads in frustration or appreciation.

Pharrell Williams, winner of Best Pop Solo Performance, was seen without his memorable, infamous hat.

However, what set him apart from everyone else was the Adidas suit he sported with shorts
instead of pants.

Black, white and silver were easily the most prominent color choices among the females of the evening.

More than 20 stars were seen in these colors, such as Nicki Minaj, Miranda Lambert, Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson.

Giuliana Rancic, Melissa Rivers and Anna Kendrick even made the daring decision to wear pantsuits.

Gwen Stefani went in a slightly different route by wearing a punk-rock strapless Versace jumpsuit.

Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, known for their unique styles during award shows and music videos, both wore flattering silver dresses.

While pop icon Taylor Swift walked away with zero Grammys, she still looked fabulous in her shimmering blue, curtain-skirted gown,
paired with fuchsia heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Swift was not the only star sporting blue:  Iggy Azalea wore a royal blue cut-out dress that emphasized her hour-glass figure.

However, her braided hairdo, which resembled a bird’s nest, resulted in an assortment of memes on the Internet poking fun at “Eggy.”

Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West, also known as Kimye, looked elegant together, as always.

Kim wore a seemingly heavy, long-sleeved dress that closely resembled professional wrestler Ric Flair’s robe.

Fans on Twitter also tweeted that her dress to looked similar to Lord Farquaad’s robe in “Shrek.”

Artist Keyshia Cole wore an outfit that certainly put viewers in awe.

Her orange dress looked as if it were made from the plastic fencing used at construction zone sites.

More memes and tweets were shared on Twitter making fun of Pharrell Williams, who, during his “Happy” performance, looked strangely similar to a bellboy.

Television critic for The New Yorker Emily Nussbaum tweeted, “Because I’m happy I work at the Grand Budapest Hotel.”

Rihanna, whose rebellious attitude did not quite match
her puffy, bright pink princess ball gown, was compared to looking like a pink badminton birdie.

Kanye West, who received a standing ovation on his performance with Paul McCartney and Rihanna, gave the crowd flashbacks to
when he stole the
mic from Swift when he almost interrupted Beck – but backed out – during his acceptance for Album of The Year, beating out Beyoncé.

While some celebrities and artists who walked the carpet of the Grammys left the audience in awe of their glam team, others did not
stand to impress.

And if the stars weren’t glamorous enough, we found out that their sense of humor is nothing short of astonishing.
