From contemporary designs to high octane and movie star glamour, the Grammy Awards is as much about fashion and couture designs as it is about music itself.

The event is regarded as one of the biggest nights of high style with celebrities stepping out in glamorous gowns and dazzling jewels.

However, the dress code for the Grammys is much relaxed as compared to other award nights giving the stars an opportunity to experiment with new looks and relaxed creations as well.

In fact, the Grammy Award red carpet is regarded as a show in itself. Right from Versace to Elie Saab, Emilio Pucci and even Zac Posen, fashion lovers can get a glimpse of the latest trends in the industry at this event.

As the 54th Grammy Awards approaches, let's take a look at some of the iconic red carpet gowns and dresses worn by various celebrities at the award ceremony through the years.

The celebrations will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday. A total of 78 awards will be presented following the Academy's decision to restructure the Grammy Award categories.

Legendary singer Paul McCartney received the MusiCares Person of the Year award Friday, two nights prior to the Grammy telecast.
