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.

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.

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.
