Sure the Grammy Awards are about music, but what would they be without all of the fabulous fashion? Looking back at red carpet looks there are five key players that come to mind that made the Grammys even more enjoyable to watch.

How can anyone forget Jenny from the Block's famous green Versace dress (a.k.a the ‘jungle dress’)? It is so fabulous you can’t help but love it. She definitely broke away from the norm with wearing this dress. Even though JLO was only nominated for two Grammys and didn’t win, she made the red carpet unforgettable.

JLO herself can’t seem to part with the dress. She was interviewed by Harper's Bazaar and was quoted by saying, “I have that at home. The other day, my housekeeper put it on a mannequin in my spa, where I get my hair and makeup done.  She sent me a picture.  She was like, 'You like this dress?’  Um, yeah, but I don't know if I like it out in the house!"

 The King of Pop arrived wearing this Bill Whitten bejeweled jacket and white glove to match.  How major is this outfit?

He took away the Grammy Awards in 1984 not only by his legendary ensemble but he literally took away Grammys.  He won 8 Grammys that year, making that night unforgettable for both him and his fans.

One of the best Grammy dresses of all time was worn by the 'Original Diva' herself, Mariah Carey. This dress is so simple but iconic. Every girl needs a little black dress and she so happened to break it out on a very special night.

The details on the dress are minimal, only having the top of the dressed outlined with jewels and the straps as well, but that only adds to its fabulousness. Mariah opted out of a wardrobe change and wore this dress for her performance of her song, Vision of Love. The simplicity of this dress will always be remembered and appreciated.

Oh, Britney Spears, how cute you used to be! Britney was all but 18 years old when she rocked this old Hollywood glam Randolph Duke dress with a sassy Oscar de la Renta wrap.

Britney was so sweet and innocent way before her I’m a Slave for You days. She was nominated for two Grammy Awards, but sadly did not win.

Say hello to Rihanna’s little black dress!  How can you not think of Michelle Pfeiffer’s dress in Scarface?

This Armani piece is somehow so elegant, but then so not with the plunging neckline and high slit. The perfect mix of classy and sexy.  Love her or hate her, you can’t deny how fierce it is. Rhi Rhi, being interviewed by E! said of the gown, “ This is a collaboration between Mr. Armani and myself”. Watch the E! News interview
