Thanks to stars like Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Hudson, Ciara and Britney Spears the 2010 Grammy’s red carpet was a dark–and in some cases scary!–night. In the battle of good vs. bad black dresses who had super style and who looked like a joker? Check it out then shop the look for ways pull off all-black right!

You can almost never look bad in all-black…almost. On the Grammy’s red carpet some celebs pulled off this simple monotone trend with ease while others should be blacklisted for their picks!

Nicole Kidman showed how classic and glamorous this trend can be when she arrived at the show, in Prada, on husband Keith Urban‘s arm.  No outlandish dresses for this style vetran!  Nicole you showed the singers how the rest of Hollywood does it and maneuvered the red carpet like a pro looking regal thanks to a  jeweled neckline and delicate Fred Leighton 19th Century diamond cluster and black enamel earrings!

Black also agreed with new-mom Jennifer Hudson.  Don’t you think her chic Victoria Beckham dress was an ultra slimming way to show off her post-baby body (she brought her baby  David Otunga Jr., born August 10, 2009, to the show!)? Sure her girls are out, but the overall effect is  sexy without being trashy. Very young-mom appropriate and, well, Posh just like the dress’ designer!

From there the midnight-hued dresses got horrifying!  Ciara you’re the new face of Givenchy so out of all the racks of gorgeous looks you had at your fingertips, what on earth made you choose that lace pants jumpsuit from the collection!?  The Adams Family called and they want their curtains back!

Britney Spears reached into her never-ending pair of fishnet stockings to wear with her Dolce & Gabbana dress. Brit we thought you were out of that phase by now! Even though you weren’t up for an award, you should’ve shown your peers–finally–that you can be more sophisticated, but instead you look like Spider Woman with that cobweb-like netting over your body suit.

We’re not sure if Ciara and Britney’s stylists had the night off for the Grammys, but if you want to get all-black right, shop the looks below!
