Awards season may mostly be about honoring Hollywood’s finest at events such as the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards but it is also that time of the year when musicians flock to Los Angeles for the annual Grammy awards. And while music definitely takes center stage during the telecast, in terms of fashion, the Grammy red carpet should definitely be on your must-watch list as well.
While movie awards tend to be all about elegant couture dresses and chic accessories where actors and actresses tend to play it relatively safe, the Grammys are a whole other beast. In fact, Grammy fashion is anything but predictable and safe. Who can forget Jennifer Lopez’s green Versace dress with the deepest V-neck the world had ever seen? Or Lady Gaga’s grand entrance in 2011 when she arrived … in a giant egg?
The truth is that the Grammy red carpet offers just as many memorable moments as the ceremony itself. And since this year’s performers include Miley Cyrus, Cardi B, Janelle Monae, and Diana Ross—all famous for their music as much as their style—it is sure that the 61st annual Grammy Awards will be one for the books.
Here we rounded up the most stylish (and a bit outrageous) looks of music’s biggest night.
