While the Grammy Awards is often the most flamboyant show of the year, the stars kept it classy in 2012, opting for neutral gold, black, white and a touch of blue.
And while the infamous 2013 dress code wasn’t yet in play, there was a demure quality underlying the red carpet ensembles of many of music’s top players.
Carrie Underwood was all covered up in white, sequined Gomez-Gracia, which let her back do the talking thanks to a sizable cutout. 2014 performer Taylor Swift went for an armored goddess look in gold Zuhair Murad before belting out her song “Mean” in a floral country frock.
While we can’t wait to see what this year’s crop of melodic fashionistas have in store, take a look at some of our favourite looks from music’s big night in 2012.
The 2014 Grammy Awards air on City on Jan. 26 at 8 pm (red carpet starts at 6:30 pm).
