We expect only the wildest and wackiest on music's biggest night and this year's Grammys red carpet brought it in spades.
Dress: Jean Paul Gaultier
Clutch: Emm Kuo
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Move over, amateurs. Let the pro show you how it's done at the Grammys. I love how Monae always takes risks and stays true to her style. From head to toe, this quirky ensemble in her trademark black and white has given me life.
Dress: Marc Jacobs
Call me nostalgic, but I was beginning to think we had lost "meat dress" Gaga and "egg hatching" Gaga forever to classy but bland "serious artist" Gaga. "David Bowie drama queen" Gaga gives me hope yet.
Gown: Alexandre Vauthier
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman
She's rocking the highest leg slit of all time, despite it being extremely drafty down there. One sneeze and it's all over.
Gown: Inbal Dror
Is there such a thing as reptilian bridal? It's like she realised halfway that this marriage of fabrics isn't compatible in any universe and can't shed herself of it fast enough.
Jumpsuit: Not known
Oh look, the crazy lady who trolled the Billboard Music Awards last year as a Skittles-covered alien is back. Only this time, she's channelling another creature - a five-year-old girl en route to a Hello Kitty-themed slumber party.
WHO WORE IT BETTER?
TAYLOR SWIFT VS KIMBERLY SCHLAPMAN
Dress: Atelier Versace
Dress: Alexia Maria
Well, there's really no contest here. Poor Schlapman from country quartet Little Big Town doesn't stand a fighting chance against Swift's legs, abs, perfect hair and overall glow of youth and success. These two decided to go for the similar colour blocking combination of bright red and hot pink, setting themselves up for an inevitable showdown - and an embarrassingly easy KO.
