Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party always promises a stylish music industry turnout, and this year's attendees did not disappoint. Now, we're zeroing in on two of the evening's most glamorous looks. Miley Cyrus chose a black Emilio Pucci halter gown for the occasion, meanwhile Katy Perry stepped out in a white long-sleeved Rafael Cennamo gown with pearl embellishments. While it may be a battle of the floor-length gowns, that's where the similarities end. Miley's embroidered gown — from the designer's Spring '13 collection — exuded serious sex appeal, thanks to that little bit of side cleavage. Katy's A/W '13 pick was all about ladylike elegance, as if the gorgeous pearls didn't say it all. It's time to turn it over to you: which singer do you think was best dressed at Clive Davis's pre-Grammy party?
Stars came out to attend Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton in LA last night despite the tragic news of Whitney Houston's death yesterday afternoon. Clive, who started Whitney's career and remained close to the singer, asked that guests observe a moment of silence for Whitney during the event and shared, "She loved music and loved this night that celebrated music. Whitney would have asked that the music go on. And her family said the show should go on." Clive was just one of many celebrities who commented on Whitney's death yesterday, including Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey.
Britney Spears and her fiancé, Jason Trawick, got the annual celebration going, as did Kim Kardashian and Richard Branson, who was honoured at the gala. Jennifer Lopez, Diana Ross, Tom Hanks and others walked the carpet while Diddy, Miranda Lambert, Alicia Keys, and more took the stage during the event. The musical fun is just getting started since the main event, the Grammy Awards, will take place later today with Jennifer Hudson expected to sing a tribute to Whitney.
Last night Clive Davis hosted his annual pre-Grammy Salute to Icons with a star studded crowd in attendance. Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Jay-Z were in the audience while Carrie Underwood, The Black Eyed Peas and Jamie Foxx kept the crowd entertained with some of their Grammy nominated hits. It's hard to forget how the night before the Grammys ended for Rihanna one year ago, but she smiled big throughout the party with so many of her friends. We'll be updating live from the big show, so stay tuned!
Some of the biggest stars of the music world came together in NYC last night to celebrate the launch of VEVO. Justin Timberlake posed with John Mayer, who recently shared his ideas on how to get away with secret texts, while Taylor Swift posed in her LBD. Rihanna smiled big after a publicly trying year and perhaps could give some advice to Adam Lambert who has had his fair share of controversy lately. Meanwhile, Nick and Mariah just looked smitten as usual. There was also time for some performances during the party including Bono and Lady Gaga, who was a little more toned down than when she met Queen Elizabeth in London the night before. John Mayer also took the stage and hugged Taylor Swift as his new album featuring a duet with the country starlet climbs the charts. Even up-and-comer Justin Bieber got in the fun, posing with Shania Twain. There were a bunch of congratulations to be handed out to the group, many of who were nominated for Grammys last week.
