She may be sharing her one nomination with Nicki Minaj and breakout star Ariana Grande this year, but she’s shone on her own at the Grammys, in Julien Macdonald.
2. 2. Ariana Grande
The singer and two-time Grammy nominee looks fresh and floral in Dolce & Gabbana.
3. 3. Nicki Minaj
Her signature color may be pink, but the daring rapper, nominated this year for her collaboration with Ariana Grande and Jessie J., once stunned the Grammy red carpet in this scarlet Versace ensemble.
4. 4. Christina Aguilera
Nominated this year as part of a collaboration with Great Big World, Xtina’s past red carpet looks include this amazing Emanuel Ungaro gown.

She doesn’t have a ton of Grammy love this year, but she did get nominated for a collaboration with Eminem. In 2008, she collaborated with designer Zac Posen to create this sensational moment at the Grammys.
6. 6. Rihanna the vamp
For the 2012 ceremony, she wore Armani. She helped design the hot, open-backed number.
7. 7. Rihanna the belle of the ball
Perhaps the singer’s best Grammy look so far came courtesy of veteran designer Azzedine Alaïa.

The man nominated this year for his work on Lazaretto looked sharp as a laser at the 2013 awards, in a nearly all-black Saint Laurent look.
13. 13. Katy Perry
This retro sea foam look is hard to pull off, but Perry, nominated this year in two categories stemming from her album PRISM, did just that in Gucci last year.
14. 14. Katy Perry in pink
Did it matter than Freida Pinto had already worn this gown by the time that Perry showed up in it for the 2009 Grammy ceremony? Heck no!
15. 15. Iggy Azalea
Nominated in four categories this year, Iggy Azalea looked fancy at the 2014 Grammy ceremony in this Elie Saab.
