The trio of stars wowed on the red carpet, despite organisers' attempts to tone the ceremony down.

Rihanna and Katy Perry defied organisers' flesh ban when they attended the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (10th February).

In the days ahead of the event, it was reported that organisers had requested that stars held back from flashing their flesh at the 55th annual staging of the awards ceremony.

A leaked memo, obtained by Deadline, said: "Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack."

It added: "Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic."

Despite the warning, the likes of Rihanna, Katy and Jennifer Lopez all attended this year's Grammys wearing a series of revealing outfits.
