If there is ever a time to wear a glamorous dress on the red carpet, the VH1 Divas event is it.

The annual concert and taping paid homage to the musical icons of yesteryear (Michael Jackson and Donna Summer among them) and likewise, the red carpet was a nod to past fashion trends with languid gowns (we see you Ciara!) and thigh-high slits (on the inimitable Kelly Rowland) taking center stage.

A refreshing nod to today’s style sensations came by way of Lala’s metallic bodycon dress which featured a full embellished sleeve.

Brandy and Keri Hilson also kept their looks contemporary with an asymmetrical, one-shoulder dress and ankle cuff sandals and a structured jumpsuit and studded pumps, respectively.

Check out our favorite looks on the red carpet and tell us who wowed you and who left you scratching your head.

    In love with all dresses except Brandy’s. It just looks like a elementary school arts and crafts project. I favor Lala’s dress particularly.
