As we gear up for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday, February 13, we cannot help but think of the fashion from Grammys past. For whatever reason, this particular awards show seems to bring out the adventurous side of our celebs. Some of the looks have been unforgettable, and others, quite frankly, we wish we never saw.
Check out our picks for the best and worst of Grammy fashion, and tell us who you think deserves to take the crown for very best and the thumbs down for awful worst on the red carpet.
1. Best/Worst Grammy Fashion: Jennifer Lopez
Best: Jennifer Lopez put herself on the fashion map when she wore Versace's barely-there green floral dress when accompanying date Sean 'Puff Daddy' Combs to the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000.
Worst: When performing with husband Marc Anthony in 2005, she overwhelmed her curvy frame with an excess of pale blue fabric and silver-and-gold sparkles.
2. Best/Worst Grammy Fashion: Shakira
Best: When she won Best Latin Pop Album in 2001, Shakira showed off the wild style we expect from her in a gold lace and beaded Maria Vazquez gown with gold pointy-toed boots and golden curls.
Worst: While performing 'Hips Don't Lie' with Wyclef Jean at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007, she went for gold again in a rather boring bandeau and skirt ensemble. Guess she wanted the focus on her hips, not her outfit.
3. Best/Worst Grammy Fashion: Christina Aguilera
Best: During her retro phase in 2007, Christina Aguilera was classy in her pale Emanuel Ungaro sweetheart strapless gown, nude peep toes and sculpted curls.
Worst: At the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards in 2001, she was the opposite of classy in a pink Trish Summerville lace-up dress with blond, beaded braids and oversized gold earrings.
4. Best/Worst Grammy Fashion: Fergie
Best: Fergie went all out glam in 2008 with a pale yellow Calvin Klein strapless dress, gold strappy sandals, a gold clutch and a diamond necklace.
Worst: Four years earlier in 2004, she went way too revealing in a white plunging fringe dress with a silver beaded clutch and silver sandals.
