The 11 Most Memorable Grammy Looks of All Time

Grammys Memorable LooksThe Grammys should be all about the memorable performances, but the awards show has also become known for its eye-catching red carpet fashion. Celebrities always dress to standout on the red carpet, but things are taken to another level at the Grammy Awards. And that level normally involves a lot of skin. Your regular beaded gown isn’t going to cut it at the Grammys. There needs to be drama, surprises and a 70% naked, 30% clothes ratio for celebs to set themselves apart.

Let’s take a look at the most memorable Grammy looks:

Christina Aguilera has worn lots of memorable things. This plunging dress actually isn’t as scandalous as some of the other things she has worn, but it is such an iconic look. The entire outfit came together perfectly from the braids to the tie-up dress to the gold sandals.

2. Rihanna, 2011


When Rihanna shows up, everyone is going to remember it. Rihanna has done a lot of different versions of naked dresses, but this one managed to be both sweet and sexy. It looks a bit like it was fashioned out of those plastic Hawaiian lei everyone wears to beach-themed parties, but that actually added to its appeal.

How could Jennifer Lopez’s plunging Versace dress not be included on the list? This might just be the single most memorable Grammys look ever. Heck, it might even be the most memorable awards season gown ever. Good luck to anyone trying to top this look.

4. Lady Gaga, 2010Grammys Lady Gaga Purple Dress

No list would be complete without Lady Gaga. It is hard for anyone to forget this look given that Gaga was holding one of the most dangerous-looking and biggest accessories to ever appear on the Grammys red carpet. Throw in some crazy shoes, a couture dress and the yellow hair and it is seared into our memories.

5. Katy Perry, 2011arrives at The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on February 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Even if Katy didn’t bring her grandma with her to the 2011 Grammys, we would still include this look on the list. How many people have showed up to the Grammys in couture angel costumes?
