4. Jaden Smith looked fresh and clean while showing off his new haircut. We were a bit confused by him bringing along his dreadlocks, however. #scratcheshead

6. J.Lo didn’t impress. This event prides itself in expressive couture, but she chose to keep it simple. As a result, she fell to the bottom of our best dressed list.
