Illusion. Beading. Sheer. Dramatic. It’s as if this zebra-esque design were created specifically for the Grammys. And stars, if you feel like it’s sacrilegious to not show a lotta leg at this show, we’d approve of turning the gown into a mini.

Too short for the Oscars. Too colorful for the Globes. Too loud for the SAG Awards. But for the Grammys? Juuust right. And, of course, the zipper down the front can be opened to further up the sex appeal. (Do we or do we not look out for you, ?)

We have this insane gown earmarked for . She’s the face of the brand’s latest campaign, plus lately she’s been getting away from the costume-y and going for the fashion-y. Read: no dress made out of butcher’s scraps.

Lil’ Kim gave sparkly one-shoulder creations at music awards shows a bad rap back in 1999, but this much more sophisticated take on the style is just what we need to get that bad taste out of our mouths.

Admittedly, Carolina Herrera isn’t the first designer we think of when we think of Grammys outfits, but this plunging white creation with contrasting brown bands at the neckline would look just as killer on the red carpet as it would during a performance. (And it might even prompt us to do a story on the classiest Grammys look of all time, which would be a first.)

While all the nominees hope to go home with a shiny, eye-catching golden gramophone, we feel like showing up to the show in this shiny, eye-catching golden gown would be almost as good.

If anyone’s looking to show off her obliques on the red carpet (*every star under 30 raises hand*), this white-and-metallic cutout dress would be the perfect choice. It’s fun, it’s not over-the-top revealing (thanks to the high neckline) and it’ll work for even the twerkiest dance routines thanks to that flowy skirt.
