The Grammys are notorious for bringing out a particularly experimental array of red carpet styles. Unlike more formal awards ceremonies where guests are expected to clothe the majority of their bodies and typically dress in floor-grazing gowns, the Grammys seem to inspire a creative free-for-all in which a transparent green, cut-to-there dress is as likely to show up as a chest-baring white tuxedo.
