"The fashion this year was underwhelming," Schwan tells Billboard.com. "There weren't any of the die-hard, envelope-pushing fashions that we have seen from musicians in the past. In the end, there were serious disappointments that far outweighed the best looks."

BEST AND WORST-DRESSED PICK: Rihanna
NIKI SCHWAN: "I am on the fence over whether Rihanna belongs on the best or worst side of this list as far as her red carpet look; she definitely made a statement and looked sexy. My first thoughts were that the dress had a modern day bombshell feel to it. However, this Givenchy dress ultimately looked like it was made from layers of whipped cream, and personally knowing the kind of selection Rihanna gets, I wonder if this was really the best option for her."
"Although she didn't nail it on the red carpet, I did LOVE her performance costume with Drake. The sheer caftan she had on in the beginning of the song was right on trend for Spring 2011 and was super-sexy paired with her red-fringe ensemble. The beading on her body suit and belt completed her bohemian-chic look perfectly."
