Which 4 Stars Ignored the Grammys Dress Code?

CBS issued a strict dress code that banned bare butts and boobs -- but not everyone followed the rules!

It appears that the Grammys' weirdly conservative new dress code may have backfired! Sure, some stars covered up accordingly (like the fabulously pantsuited Beyonce). But for others, the no-revealing-clothing rule brought out their inner rebellious teenager.

Check out the four worst offenders below!

Jennifer Lopez

She may not have directly inspired this dress code, but J.Lo's 2000 Grammy dress ushered in the modern era of red carpet exposure. Naturally, she rose to the occasion this year, wearing a sexy dress that bared her entire right leg. (Take that, Angelina!) "They didn't say anything about leg! I thought I was being such a good girl!" Lopez protested when E! correspondent Ryan Seacrest teased her about the dress code. Oh, please -- J. Lo knows exactly what she's doing. And as long as she has the best body in the business, she should keep right on doing it.

2. Katy Perry

In a sense, Katy Perry toned it down at this year's Grammys; she didn't wear any candy canes, fuzzy dice, or Smurf patterns. Instead, she opted for a long-sleeved, full-length, mint-green gown with a pop of cleavage. And we do mean "pop." Perry's boobs were so exposed, we're surprised they didn't put somebody's eye out. (Somebody at boob level, probably. Bruno Mars?) On the plus side, that beaded flower neckline was really pretty. But then again, who was looking at it?

Kelly Rowland

When Beyonce let go of her alter ego Sasha Fierce, we thought she was gone forever. Now we're thinking she's been resurrected in Kelly Rowland. The former Destiny's Child member wore a dress that required serious courage, with cutouts across the chest, hips, thighs, and -- okay, it was actually more cutout than dress. As a whole, the gown didn't quite mesh; the geometric panels and the poofy mermaid skirt were a weird combo. But you've gotta admire her daring.

Rihanna

And she's usually so shy! Kidding. As per usual, Rihanna dared to bare at this year's Grammys, wearing a custom Alaia gown with various degrees of see-through-ness. The red dress was absolutely stunning, but totally violated CBS's ban on "sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples," since her female breast nipples were on full display.  Later on, RiRi performed her Bob Marley tribute number in a glittery crop top that flaunted her chest tattoo -- you know, the one directly underneath her breasts. Silly network; if you make a rule, you've gotta know that Rihanna's going to break it.

While these four stars were the main offenders, there were quite a few other dress code violations in effect, including Kimbra's transparent Tinkerbell number and Ashanti's sheer floral gown. Honestly, we're relieved that the celebs ignored the prudish dress code; this year's ceremony could use all the excitement it could get!
