All three singers made major -- but totally diverse -- style statements.

At Sunday's Grammy Awards, Katy Perry made a surprisingly conservative fashion statement with her sparkly blue Elie Saab gown and turquoise hair worn up in a modern French twist with minimal jewelry. It was a much more mature look for the "California Gurls" singer, very recently split from comic actor Russell Brand.

Nicki Minaj pulled a Lady Gaga with a bright red cloak gown designed by Donatella Versace. She walked the red carpet, hood raised, while being escorted by a guy dressed either as the Pope or a bishop, making us wonder: is this the result of her new collaboration with Gaga's former creative director?

Considering how little clothing MInaj usually wears, this was either a refreshing change or a major disappointment. "It's this year's Gaga egg," screeched the overly delighted E! red carpet seer Kelly Osbourne.

Meanwhile, nominee Taylor Swift wore a pretty fabulous high-neck, puffed-sleeve golden gown -- almost fit for Downton Abbey -- from designer Zuhair Murad. "I saw it months ago and knew I had to save it for the Grammys," Taylor told reporters.
