Distasteful cleavage and cheesy designs prevailed as many of industry's most successful music artists proved they have better music sense than fashion sense.
Among the more disappointing fashions, according to Monday's New York Post, were Jennifer Love Hewitt's revealing bold red Armani dress, Ashanti's Grecian-inspired light pink Roberto Cavalli gown,
Paula Abdul's tight orange gown, Queen Latifah's green blouse and black leather pants, Duff's pink prom dress and Blige's gold dress and canary-yellow fur bomber also were notable.
Beyonce, one of the night's top winners, was an exception. She wore a dazzling gold silk dress designed by her mother, Tina Knowles.
While her beaded hot pink performance costume was less than impressive, Beyonce redeemed herself when she changed into a gorgeous diamond and blue dress for the remainder of the evening.
Alicia Keys also looked stunning in a Roberto Cavalli sheer top paired with diamond Erickson Beamon chandelier earrings over tapered white jeans.
