Fashion Rocks, the revived concert/runway show/television extravaganza, may have taken place in New York during Fashion Week -- but the red carpet was more L.A. than Brooklyn. We're talking tight, sexy, sparkly. It was a welcome antidote to all of this week’s “fashion” culottes and oversized vests: That stuff just wouldn’t do ladies like Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and Karolina Kurkova justice.

But that's not to say they weren’t wearing cool designers. Click through the gallery below to see Kurkova in form-fitting Dion Lee, Nicki Minaj in very short Saint Laurent, Lara Stone in Calvin Klein, J.Lo in Versace, Rita Ora in an out-of-place OTT gown and more.
