Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift And More Top Our 2012 EMA Best Dressed List

Tonight's 2012 EMA red carpet was ALL about branching out of one's fashion comfort zone. Whether it's Rita Ora trading jumpsuits for a floor-length dress, Taylor Swift opting for a super-sleek gown (sans red lipstick!) or Carly Rae Jepsen taking Old Hollywood glamour to the next level, these ladies pulled out all the style stops tonight in Frankfurt. Those watching stateside have to wait a few hours in order to see the action go down on TV, but we've got your EMA fashion preview right here. Check out our top five looks below!

LANA DEL REY IN SHAREEN

Lana Del Rey has built her entire career on her retro-inspired sound, so it's only appropriate the singer rocked an equally old-school look at tonight's Europe Music Awards. Keeping things simple in a vintage-inspired midnight blue satin wrap dress by Shareen and black pumps, H&M's newest face styled her jet-black hair into her trademark bouffant for a grownup look that's not boring, not over the top, but JUST right. Well done, Lana!

TAYLOR SWIFT IN J.MENDEL

OK, we admit it: our jaws totally dropped when we saw Taylor Swift arrive at the 2012 EMA pre-show. First of all, she's not wearing red!! (She's leaving the honor to Rita Ora, we guess). But also, she looks AMAZING. Dressed in a slinky white and silver J. Mendel number, the singer worked the frock's geometric sheer panels and sparkly sections to perfection. The rest of the look was equally gorgeous- Christian Louboutin shoes and gorgeous wintry makeup- but we just can't stop thinking about that dress. It will probably haunt our dreams tonight...

RITA ORA IN MARCHESA

Rita Ora pretty much epitomized pure red hotness tonight in her girly Marchesa gown. The outfit's full skirt and embellished top is a complete 180 from the jumpsuit-obsessed pop star we know and love, but don't worry — Rita is back to her old ways onstage in a sparkly onesie. Her red carpet dress may be a fashion throwback to Rihanna, but we're not complaining. Girl is on FIRE! (literally).

ALICIA KEYS IN STELLA MCCARTNEY

Speaking of girls on fire, just looking at Alicia Keys's killer bod is MORE than enough motivation to convince basically anyone to hit the gym. She flaunted it in a big way tonight, dressed in a body-hugging green Stella McCartney frock and Gianvito Rossi pumps. We love how her statement Repossi necklace perfectly complements her sleek short 'do without even distracting from the rest of her look.

CARLY RAE JEPSEN IN JOHANNA JOHNSON

Hellooo drama! Carly Rae Jepsen swapped her beloved Topshop dresses for a chic silver gown by Australian designer Johanna Johnson. Although her dress is seriously glam on its own, the singer also worked Old Hollywood-inspired makeup with a statement lip and cascading waves. Va va voom!
