In honor of the 2011 Grammy Awards this Sunday in Los Angeles, RadarOnline.com has all the wardrobe winners and sinners from the Grammy Awards over the years in this special photo feature.
While other awards shows tend to be more conservative in nature, leave it to music’s sassiest singers to up the wow factor at the Grammy Awards! Whether they hit the high note a la mode, or sink to the depths of a fashion disaster, sexy is always on the agenda at music’s fiercest fashion event.
In 2000, Jennifer Lopez stepped onto the red carpet of the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards with then boyfriend Puff Daddy, in a look that went on to become one of the most iconic dresses of all times. The Latina singer was dressed to shock in her dramatically low-cut and sheer Versace gown, which barely covered her boobs. That same year, Britney Spears wore one of her glammest looks ever, channeling Old Hollywood in a white hot tank dress.
In 2001, Toni Braxton left nothing to the imagination in her slit-to-the-hip Richard Tyler gown, while Christina Aguilera, pre-stylist, looked like she was working the corner, not a red carpet in racy red threads.
Who can forget rapper M.I.A. at the 2009 Grammy Awards, which happened to fall on her due date, when she performed onstage in a skintight, polka-dot mini?
In 2010 dueling country cuties Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift both scored slots on the Best Dressed list. While the American Idol looked Grecian gorgeous in her Edition by Georges Chakra stunner, Tay Tay sparkled in a stunning Kaufman Franco number, which featured a sexy off-the-shoulder neckline.
