With the 55th Annual Grammy Awards only days away, it’s time to look back on the best red carpet moments from our favorite Latina ladies! The tagline for the ceremony may be ‘the world is listening,’ but we say the entire world is watching — so check out our picks for the top fashion looks throughout the history of music’s biggest night!
1. Grammy Fashion: Selena Gomez

Selena’s gold gown was the perfect mix of elegance and glamour on the 2011 Grammy Awards red carpet. Paired with loose waves and a bright lip, Sel is the bella of the ball in this statuesque J.Mendel frock.
2. Grammy Fashion: Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards (2000)
It was the dress seen ‘round the world! J.Lo’s $15,000 Versace palm-print dress in 2000 remains one of the most iconic Grammy moments to date.
3. Grammy Fashion: Selena Quintanilla
Selena Quintanilla-Pérez at the 35th Grammy Awards (1994)
The late Selena Quintanilla-Perez was a vision in white for the awards ceremony in 1994, during which her “Selena Live!” record won for “Best Mexican/American Album.”
4. Grammy Fashion: Shakira
Shakira at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards (2007)
It was quite a night for Shakira in her red-hot Carolina Herrera chiffon gown — not only did she perform at the ceremony for the first time (with her catchy tune “Hips Don’t Lie”), but she also celebrated her fourth Grammy nomination for the track.
5. Grammy Fashion: Christina Aguilera

Christina’s show-stopping pale Ungaro dress (complete with purple trim and a dramatic beige ribbon) was only upstaged by her killer performance of “It’s a Man’s World” in 2007. With her retro waves and sweet makeup, Xtina looks girly glam in her figure-flattering dress.
6. Grammy Fashion: Fergie

Fergie showed off her mile-long legs in this custom-made Badgley Mishka Couture metallic mini at the 49th annual awards. Complete with gunmetal stiletto heels and dramatic diamond earrings, the songstress celebrated her “My Humps” win, along with her Black Eyed Peas bandmates, in style.
7. Grammy Fashion: Gloria Estefan

8. Grammy Fashion: Paulina Rubio
Paulina Rubio at the 46th Annual Grammy Awards (2004)
The Mexican superstar played up her petite frame in a short, geometric-print dress on the 2004 green carpet. Bonus: Her daring plunging neckline — an homage to J.Lo, perhaps? — served as the ultimate accessory.
9. Grammy Fashion: Christina Milian

The singer looked phenomenal in this cut-out ombre dress with halter neck. She was ahead of the ombre trend!
10. Grammy Fashion: Naya Rivera

This triple-threat showed off her enviable gams with a gathered dress and dramatic train on the 2011 Grammy Awards red carpet. The silver business-in-the-front-party-in-the-back number is youthful, fun, and flirty — just like her!
