There was definitely something missing at the 2014 Grammys on Sunday and we think that something was Rihanna.

Sure, there were a few cool moments (Pharrell's mountie hat and Beyonce's "Drunk in Love" performance), but our general impression of the show was that it needed a bit more spark and pizzazz that only someone like RiRi could bring.

Unfortunately, the "Stay" singer didn't attend the award show (sob!) and she showed us just what we were missing when she attended Clive Davis’ annual Pre-Grammy Gala event on Saturday.

Rih went head-to-toe glam in a yellow satin Alexandre Vauthier couture gown which featured a plunging neckline and a thigh high slit that prominently showed off her toned gams. (Guh, why wasn't this high-octane dress at the Grammys??)

The goddess accentuated her otherworldly beauty with a long silver necklace that grazed her chest tattoo and gold lace-up Christian Louboutin stilettos.

After the celebrity-studded party, the 25-year-old changed into something a bit more comfortable (oversized varsity jacket, skinny jeans and tee) and partied at the hot L.A. nightclub 1 Oak with none other than Canadian rapper Drake.

We missed you Rih!

These folks at the Grammys had nothing on Rihanna:
