It's the biggest Pre-Grammy celebration of the weekend: Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Gala. Tons of folks turned out for the posh, star-filled dinner and party. And we've got all the pics inside....
Last night, plenty of celebs hit the Beverly Hilton to salute industry icons and honor Lucian Graing. Rihanna showed up looking sexy in a yellow deep plunging and thigh high slit gown:
And chick had her drink in her hand--of course--and was spotted dancing around in her seat while folks performed.
Jennifer Hudson looked svelte in a black dress complete with multi-colored bandage stripes. And she looked amazing.
Jenny posed with Clive Davis and Smokey Robinson.
Swizz & Alicia Keys were spotted hugged up while watching all the performances.
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke got all cutesy on the carpet:
Not feelin' this dress though. A little to 80's for our taste...
John Legend and his new wife Chrissy Teigen hit the carpet. Loving her look this time around.
