Grammy Awards 2015 Red Carpet Style

Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and more on the 2015 Grammys red carpet.

  • Welcome to the Grammy Awards’ red carpet, where you will see the zaniest formalwear of awards season.

    Unlike actors and actresses, musicians as a whole are known for dressing in a delightfully batty manner. See the prior red carpet ensembles of Cher, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and the ladies of Destiny’s Child for evidence.

    Click through our slideshow to take in all the nominees’ and presenters’ colorful style, and be sure to relish the nutty charm of the music industry before the much more staid Oscar red carpet on Feb. 22.
