What does the guy who has everything give the girl who has everything? There are only so many gold-plated limousines, crystal-studded private jets and yachts renamed in one’s honor you can give before it starts to feel old. This year, Jay Z went back to basics, selecting a simple, mixed-metal bracelet with a sentimental message to give to his bride, Beyoncé.

No one made a bigger impact at the Grammys than Beyoncé in not one but two body-baring outfits: A sexy bodysuit that she followed up with a daringly sheer Michael Costello gown. The designer, a Project Runway alum, may have seemed a surprising choice for a star who’s often seen in custom Lanvin and Givenchy, but according to Costello, as soon as Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter saw it, he knew it was the one.

“I know that she could have any designer in the world make her anything she wants — I never thought he was going to call,” Costello says of a chance encounter with Hunter at a party. “He came into the showroom [four days before the Grammys], and he was loving everything. He had a direction he wanted to go in, which was ‘Shut s–t down’ and ‘Nakedness.’”

While Hunter was there, Costello brought out the gowns he was working on for fashion week. “When he saw that dress, his heart stopped. He was like, ‘Yes God, this is the moment!’” But despite his excitement, Costello’s Project Runway instincts caused him to create six backup dresses in a matter of days. “Coming from the television shows, I wanted to impress people in a way,” he explained. “I stopped what I was doing and made six more dresses as options. I think it’s because I love a challenge so much. Maybe it gets my adrenaline going.”

Jan/27/2014 at 08:00 AM ET

There weren’t many traffic-stopping moments at the Grammys this year (no one arrived in an egg, or wearing wings). In fact, neutral gowns seemed to be the theme of the evening, as you’ll see below. But that doesn’t mean there was nothing worth discussing from the red carpet. Quite the contrary. Our style team picked the five star looks that will be in their No. 1 spot when they share their “Best Dressed” list to Facebook later.

Grammy Awards Gown Change-Ups: Which Star's Look Did You Like Best?

Jan/27/2014 at 12:38 AM ET

How do you know you’ve made it in the music world? When you don’t settle for just one dress at the Grammy Awards. Some of the night’s leading ladies switched up their looks from red carpet to the stage and back again, and of course, we want to discuss.

First up, Katy Perry switched from her music note-printed gown to yet another Valentino Haute Couture gown hot off the runway: A short maroon tulle creation with a serpent design wrapped around the bodice. She also let her hair down from that seriously intense bun, wearing her hair down and wavy for dress No. 2.

Next Beyoncé went from showing off her curves in a sexy black La Perla bodysuit and Saint Laurent crystal tights to … showing off her curves in a daringly sheer gown with beaded white floral details. Seriously, the back view is insane — you’ve got to see it here.

To perform “All Too Well” onstage, Taylor Swift ditched her “suit of armor” Gucci Première gown for a goddess-like gray Alberta Ferretti design with chain embellishments at the neckline. But she changed back into her Gucci number for the rest of the show. Clearly, it’s easy to move in — as evidenced by her breaking it down all night.
