The girls of Girls were at the Grammys tonight! At the same time a new episode hit the airwaves on HBO, TV’s hippest BFFs graced the red carpet as plus-ones for the evening. Katy Perry (in skin-baring Gucci) brought pal Allison Williams (in Kaufmanfranco), while Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff had girlfriend Lena Dunham at his side. He also thanked Dunham when Fun. accepted the Grammy for Song of the Year for their party smash hit “We Are Young.” How cute!
The Grammys are as much an awards ceremony as they are a big, televised, fun-to-watch concert! Taylor Swift opened the show with a circus-themed performance of her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Rihanna put on a fun two-piece dress for her part in the tribute to Bob Marley alongside Bruno Mars and Sting, and Adam Levine proved that you don’t have to be a girl to be on fire when he and Maroon 5 stood alongside Alicia Keys for a performance of her hit girl power anthem.

At tonight’s Grammys, Janelle Monae rocked a bold red lip, and we caught up with the star’s makeup artist Saisha Beecham to find out the details behind her killer color. The star used CoverGirl’s LipPerfection LipColor in Hot, an extra moisturizing formula packed with rich, pigmented color. “I love that this is Janelle’s favorite red lip color because it’s perfect for her flawless face,” Beecham told InStyle.com. “I chose the color not only because it’s her favorite, but also because it was just the splash of color she needed with her gold embellished blazer.” Add the color to your shopping list, it’s available for $7 at drugstore.com.
Despite a memo to tone down the revealing fashion at the Grammys, Katy Perry didn’t follow the rules, showing up to the Staples Center in a mint green Gucci gown with a front keyhole opening big enough to show off every curve. ”I was just inspired by Priscilla Presley in the ’70s—big hair, closer to God, that whole thing,” she told E! host Ryan Seacrest. The dress is the fashion conversation starter of the night, and it can hop right off the red carpet into your hands. The design—which features a floral neckline packed with jade, turquoise, and light topaz crystals—is available for $5,500 on gucci.com. So, would you push “click to buy”?
