With six Grammy Awards already in his possession John Legend seems calm and collected on the red carpet at the 2012 Grammys. Looking dashing as usual in a plain black tux and skinny tie, Legend told “Ask Men” about why he wears what he does, saying, “At the core, it's about dressing for girls -- who are most of my fans -- and you want to dress up for them. You just want to feel like you're on top of your game.” John Legend is definitely on top of his game with this fitted tuxedo.

Rihanna turned heads on the red carpet with this racy, deep-V neck dress. When asked about the dress by “E! News” Rihanna responded, "This is a collaboration between Mr. Armani and myself, I wanted something a little bit like Michelle Pfeiffer in 'Scarface' -- simple, sexy, yet a little gangster at the same time." She rocks this bold and sexy look with an attitude and a presence on the red carpet that only Rihanna can rock.

Although the blue hair seems a little wild, we love Katy Perry’s gold outfit at the 2012 Grammys. The metallic, fitted dress by Gucci shows off Perry’s curves in a polished and subtly sexy way. Last year, Perry told “Cosmopolitan” how important her career is to her saying, "I sacrifice in my love life and my social life, but those things will be there in three or four years," she said. "This is a really important time in my life. I can't just be the girl who sang 'I Kissed a Girl.' I have to leave a legacy." If she keeps wearing looks like this, she is sure to be a stylish legacy in our book.

Ackerman’s bronzed skin and pink lips against her white dress made her stand out on the red carpet.

Seymour told FriendsofJane.com her fitness secrets: “A lot of people give up on keeping in shape. I want to be in optimum health until the day I die. There are things you can do to oil the machine. Sometimes, things that happen to you that could pull you down instead [spur you] to do something remarkable…and as a result, my body is in better shape than that of people in their 30s.”

Last year, Paltrow told "Self" magazine her fitness secret: “I do 45 minutes of cardio five days a week, because I like to eat. I also try for 45 minutes of muscular structure work, which is toning, realigning and lengthening. If I’m prepping for something or I’ve been eating a lot of pie, I do two hours a day, six days a week for two weeks.” Get it girl!
