Taylor Swift was leading the fashion pack in a head-turning emerald cutout gown, which perfectly walked the line between sophisticated and sexy. She also picked up the night's top award: the first-ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence.

The theme for the night was, in fact, mostly flesh-flashing, on different levels.

Kate Beckinsale managed to get it spot-on in a beautiful white plunging Kaufmanfranco frock with a Bulgari serpent necklace. And Kendall Jenner's beautiful Yigal Azrouel Spring 2014 sheer monochrome dress may have had a split that was bordering on indecent, but she still managed to pull it off.

One star who bucked the trend - and looked incredible - was Brit Rita Ora. She showed everybody how to do statement dressing without showing off what your mamma gave you in a bright and beautiful Zac Posen dress with a big train.

Back to the skin-show: Jennifer Lopez's nude Reem Acra dress might have pushed the theme a little far, while Heidi Klum's pinks-accented Versace Spring 2015 top and skirt and colourful chunky heels were definitely ill-judged.
