The Grammys’ Most Memorable Outfits

grammys2010logoThe Grammy Awards happen this Sunday night. Grammys have long been considered as big a night for fashion as they are for music. We have put together ten of the Grammy Awards’ most memorable red carpet moment :

Whose outfit will be most memorable? Horrible? Glamorous?

OK Go 2007


Pop group OK Go made their Grammy debut in matching red patterned suits—complete with scarlet face masks and coordinating hats. One band member stopped to explain their alien-looking costumes: “We’re dressed in the future – the future dressed us.”

Rihanna, 2008


Designed by Zac Posen. She performed a medley of her dance-floor friendly tracks “Umbrella” and “Please Don’t Stop The Music.”

Toni Braxton 2001


Toni Braxton was nominated for Best Female R&B Performance and Best R&B Album

Katy Perry, 2009


A surprising choice for the daughter of two Christian pastors.What a fuit-loopy look by 2008 super-hit “I Kissed A Girl.”

Madonna, 1999


Material Girl was to sing the lackadaisical lyrics of “Nothing Really Matters” while wearing a kimono (a gift from Gaultier, bien sûr).

M.I.A., 2009


She rocked in a one-off Henry Holland mesh mini-dress.

Whitney Houston, 1985


Whitney Houston was every bit the Cinderella of the music industry’s biggest ball, performing “Saving All My Loving For You”—and accepting her first Grammy award.

Sinead O’Connor, 1989


Pairing boyfriend jeans and Doc Martens as she covered Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U catch the attention.

Michael Jackson 1984


Michael Jackson arrived at the 1984 Grammy Awards ceremony wearing a bedazzled marching band jacket, matching pants, and a now infamous white glove.

Michael Jackson, 1988


The King of Pop toned it down for his ’88 performance of “The Way You Make Me Feel,” and “Man In The Mirror” with a classic Michael look: cropped pants, white socks, and plenty of crotch-grabbing swagger.
