The Grammys exist to honor the best achievements in music, but they also provide a stage for some of the hottest outfits you’ll see all year. See, unlike other awards shows, where it’s all about grace, class and style, the Grammys are about putting on an outrageous show and ramping up the sex appeal. Here’s a look back at the sexiest Grammys look of all time.
What makes an outfit sexy? It’s not as simple as simply showing off a lot of skin. An outfit’s got to have a balance of style, flirtation and rock star moxie to make it stand out from the couture crowd.
Toni Braxton wowed everyone when she dared to wear a barely-there dress to the 2001 Grammy Awards. The gown is still considered one of the most shocking–and scintillating–garments ever worn on a red carpet. On the flip side, Justin Timberlake made us all swoon when he showed up covered from head to toe in what’s got to be the slickest and sexiest suit & tie in music history. And Rihanna proved in 2012 that there’s nothing sexier than a beautiful black dress paired with simple, tousled bed hair.
Looking back at the Grammys hottest looks only has us more titillated to see what sexy stars like Katy Perry and Beyoncé will be serving us this year when the 56th Annual Grammy Awards airs Sunday, January 26 at 8/7 C on CBS.
