Fashion at the Grammys

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on January 28, 2018. Here is a glance at some outrageous fashion moments at the Grammys.


In 2000, JLo welcomed the new millennium as a rising star. She showed up at the Grammys in a sheer silk chiffon Versace green dress with a tropical leaf and bamboo motif. The dress was Donatella Versace's debut of sorts after the tragic murder of her brother, Gianni.

To say there was a plunge to the front of this dress is an understatement. It barely had a front at all, relying heavily on adhesive to keep it this side of wardrobe malfunction.


How does a stunner of a singer follow a stunner of a singer on the Grammys red carpet? In 2001, Braxton pulled a JLo when she wore a white silk jersey Richard Tyler dress, but not just any white dress.

She went all in on the hip-baring in a dress that had no sides, save a crystal-embellished piece of fabric that held the front and the back together. But there was hardly a back or a front to go with the no sides.


It was at the 52nd Grammys in 2010 that Gaga went Jetsons, hitting the red carpet in a sparkly futuristic lavender dress by Armani Prive with suspended metal hoops encasing her body. She held a huge spiky star for photos. Her wig hair was a bright yellow ombre that appeared attached to the top of the corset-style dress. And Gaga had on those towering high platform shoes she was so fond of.


It was ultra-huge. It was bubblegum pink. It was RiRi's 2015 tulle strapless Grammy gown.

The two-tiered dress by Giambattista Valli was dubbed "The Cupcake." There was a girly innocence to it rather than her usual bad-girl edge. Detractors had some fun, likening the look to a cake topper and an ode to Glinda the Good Witch.

Word has it Rihanna found the gown on the Internet after it was shown during Paris couture week.
