But this year, we were surprised to see that so many of music’s most outrageous leading ladies decided to tone it down. Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J all opted for a neutral palette, while Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande both chose a very grown-up, classic red lip. And the most popular hairstyle on the carpet? Sleek and straight.
