Beyonce Knowles was a vision in this Altelier Versace Fall 2009 sheen gown. Everything from the metallic armor accents, to the structured form fitted waist, to the shimmering mermaid train, was impecable. The subtle make-up and lack of accessories glamorized the dress even further.
Leona Lewis was a surprise in trendy black sequin harem pants, curve hugging corset and cut out heels. Lewis, who tends to opt for more floor-length, standard red carpet gowns works this sexy, unpredictable look.
Showing off her toned legs, Shakira looked sensational in this silver Dontatella Versace mini dress. The added black at the shoulders gives the mini definition and edge. She topped off the shimmering number with a pair of stunning Versace Spring 2010 heels.
Katy Perry was mesmerizing in a Marchesa Spring 2010 nude gown. The draped tulle, one shoulder dress with black and silver floral embroidery went with the "dark and dramatic" theme Perry told MTV she wanted for the awards.
