Katy Perry may have won my vote for best performance of the night with a huge slam to Russell Brand, but Rihanna stole the show on the red carpet as well as on stage.
Black maintains elegance with this edgy frock. Rihanna took to the red carpet with a plunging neckline and barely there back designed by the artist herself in collaboration with Armani.

Her punky coif reminiscent of a 1980s Tina Turner do' complemented the look to its entirety.
|Now, that's what I call a perm!|
Rihanna translated her punk vibe on stage during her "We Found Love" performance with Coldplay while sporting an acid wash denim vest over a black ensemble (perhaps KP's alter ego, Kathy Beth Terry was the first to bring this retro look back!)
I have been wanting a denim vest for awhile now but haven't brought myself to buy one; it just seems a bit pricey for something that can easily be a DIY project, which might be in my near future...
Runner-up: Kate Beckinsale (always gorgeous!)
Rock-Bottom: Tie between Nicki Minaj and Fergie. What was with that performace Nicki!? Er, I mean, Roman???
P.S. Great shoutout to the Big Man and Whitney Houston, RIP
