Unlike most award shows, guests at the Grammys always march to their own beat with red carpet looks that seem to indicate there is an anything-goes dress code. And thank heavens for that.
In a month populated with award shows, fashion fatigue can start to set in as the gowns begin to look the same as starlets and their stylists are loathe to take any fashion risks. Young actresses often hope to expand their exposure by landing a fashion campaign, a cosmetic contract or a Vogue cover and they are not going to risk the chance of landing on any worst-dressed lists.
So it's left to musical artists to entertain us on the red carpet with their outfits. While most of the celebrities who turned up Sunday night at the 59th Grammys put their best foot forward sartorially, there are always those that opt for shock-and-awe tactics when it came to their attire.
Click through for our roundup of some of the most memorable looks on the red carpet at music's big night.
