Fashion is big business which may make this on-topic for METAR.

A Fashionable, if Safe, Red Carpet at the Grammy Awards
Last week, CBS issued a dress code for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, threatening the often adventurous and revealing looks that have historically peppered the red carpet. Showing too much flesh was apparently among the list of no-nos. A dress code for the Grammys? Were things getting that out of hand? Unlike the Golden Globes and the Oscars, the Grammys red carpet has always been a place where an alternative expression of glamor was welcomed, even for men....

By "adventurous" they mean "showing anatomy that would get them arrested in public." Sorry, not OK for family TV this year.

Musicians seem to be more avant-garde than actresses, so what fashions did they parade on the red carpet?

Most of them were pretty ordinary for haute couture.

Some were fashion-forward and elegant (Kelly Rowland, p. 4, Esperanza Spalding, p. 6, Elle Varner, p. 7, Jenna Jameson, p. 10).

Several of the ladies seemed to be saying, "I paid the surgeon plenty for these t!t$ so I want to show them off." I won't list them -- this is homework for the guys ;-).

Some were stunningly tasteless, such as Kate Pierson (p. 3), Lila Downs (p. 6) and Kimbra (p. 10).

Hopefully, the Academy Awards will have a better selection.
