They may have both won Grammy Awards but the editors at People magazine say that India.Arie and Kelly Rowland were big losers when it came to fashion.

The magazine’s website list what it considers some of the fashion faux pas at the awards show, and Arie and Rowland didn’t make the cut.

The magazine says it liked Arie’s haircut but her outfit needed improvement. Rowland’s outfit left much to be desired as well, according to the editors. India.Arie won Grammys for best R&B album and Urban/Alternative Performance. Kelly Rowland took home a statue for best Rap/Sung Collaboration, “Dilemma,” that she made with Nelly.

Rapper Eve also made the not-so-fashionable list in an outfit that People thinks made her look more like a disco diva than a hip-hop queen.

However, there were a few winners. Dixie Chick Emily Robison made the list. Just three months after giving birth, she wore a form-fitting black dress that hugged her curves. Sheryl Crow also got best dressed honors wearing a vintage gown. She won a Grammy for Best Female Rock Performance for her song, “Steve McQueen.”

But some of the Dixie Chicks didn’t score well when it came to their hairdos. Martie Maguire and Natalie Maines made People’s list of the worst Grammy hair. The magazine complained Maguire’s blonde locks, which were pulled back in a ponytail, washed her out, while Maines’s shellacked hairstyle overpowered her petite frame. Bad hair or not, they still took home a Grammy for best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Long Time Gone.”

Meanwhile, Faith Hill made the best hair list. People called her wavy white-blonde do “all-out glamorous.” She won Grammys for Best Female Country Performance for “Cry.”
