NICKI: WILD TO MILD
We’re still scratching our heads over Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe choice last year (not to mention her plus-one), but many of the outfits she’s stepped out in since then, like this black lace mini, worn with minimal accessories – and no pope – require no explanation.

TAYLOR: MILD TO WILD
High neckline? Cap sleeves? Allover embroidery? That was so last year. These days has been strutting her stuff in plunging gowns and backless, curve-hugging designs.

RIHANNA: WILD TO MILD
We knew there was nothing wouldn’t wear (as evidenced by her backstage getup at the 2012 Grammys), but since then she’s been spotted in feminine lace maxis and other surprisingly conservative looks.

KATY: MILD TO WILD
In powder blue Elie Saab at last year’s show, almost had us convinced she’d left her crazy, skin-baring costumes behind her. A few months later, she was back to her old ways in an alien-princess-inspired number featuring a sheer skirt and golden bodice.

FERGIE: WILD TO MILD
The Black Eyed Peas’s frontwoman proved she has the body to wear anything with that see-through orange lace Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture dress, but then she proved something even more impressive: Her figure looks just as hot in an understated LBD.

CARRIE: MILD TO WILD
She’s got range, and we’re not just talking about her voice. We have a feeling is one of the few women in the world to have a closet that houses both her Grammy ensemble, a princess-inspired sparkly Gomez-Grazia, and this avant-garde structured blue mini.

GAGA: WILD TO MILD
We barely batted an eye when the showed up to the 2012 Grammys in lingerie armor covered in netting and carrying a scepter, but we had to pick our jaws up off the floor when she attended her perfume launch last fall in a simple black sheath.

JULIANNE: MILD TO WILD
Same color, same designer, very different dress. pulls off basic black (the simple KaufmanFranco gown she sported to the Grammys) and bold black (a sheer-paneled, ultra-embellished dress, also KaufmanFranco) equally well.

ALICIA: MILD TO WILD
What’s the opposite of an LBD, which wore a year ago to the Grammys? An LCMT, also known as a Little Cropped Mock Turtleneck, the top she paired with a high-waist red maxi in January.
