THE Grammys are in fashion terms, quite unlike any other awards ceremony.
Where other major events including the BAFTAs and the Golden Globes, attract a rather formal dress code, at the Grammys all rules are thrown out of the window.
In previous years that has meant a rather eclectic parade of attendees; from the dare to bare stars (think Rihanna or JLo) to the frankly bizarre (Lady Gaga in an egg).
And whilst at today's ceremony there was no giant egg, the red carpet was by no means a boring affair.
Madonna was an early arrival and the legendary popstar didn't disappoint wearing a Givenchy creation consisting of a corset, thigh high boots and a net headpiece.
There was a gaggle of shockers out in full force - that's what we love about this risky red carpet.
Aussie singer Sia donned a massive white wig, Charlie XCX's stepped out in an 80's inspired white tux with pink accessories while Elton Castee got stuck in to some weird razor work on his legs.
There were also a lot of looks we really loved.
Jesse J nailed gothic glam in an embellished Ralph & Russo gown with a slick side part and dark red lip.
Gwen Stefani's Atelier Versace jumpsuit proves this 45-year-old mum is still rock'n'roll while RiRi got everyone talking, made a spectacular fashionably late arrival in a Giambattista Valli gown, plucked straight off last week's haute couture show in Paris.
