Talk about taking a risk! 

The 2104 Grammys got off to a great start, with music's biggest names showing off their style on the red carpet. While there were a ton of looks we loved, there were a few stars who should have re-thought their gowns.

Katy Perry really embraced the award show in her music note printed Valentino Spring 2014 Couture gown. The dress really does nothing for Katy's amazing figure, and the color likewise was not a great look against the 29-year-old's fair skin. 

Paula Patton needs to hire a stylist ... like yesterday! The actress disappointed in her zebra floor-length gown. Animal prints on the red carpet are generally a no-no -- sorry Paula! 

Sara Bareilles also looked desperately in need of a new glam squad. From her washed out makeup to her Blumarine Spring 2014 high-low look -- it was all a big mess. Not only was the dress extremely unflattering, but the outfit just looked dated. And the orange clutch and matching heels clashed with the style of the dress. 

But these ladies weren't the only stars who missed the mark -- click "Launch Gallery" above to see even more of our picks for the worst dressed stars of the night!
