Thankfully, our favorite musicians like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Cee-Lo Green have no such qualms about making a genuine fashion statement on Grammy night.

Lo’s infamous Versace wrap dress, we pay tribute (and throw some occasional shade) at those over the years who have shown no fear on Music’s Biggest Night.
