This Monday, an elite selection of musicians will descend upon Los Angeles for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. And because the music world is such a wacky place, those musicians are also style icons.

Come, let's stroll down this unwieldy red carpet. By Julianne Escobedo Shepherd

"Monster"-era Nicki Minaj hearkens back to Mary J. Blige's cheetah gown with a Bride of Frankenstein twist. She's going for more demure looks now, and frankly we miss the days of Minaj fashion risks. No one does it quite like her.

A rare moment of Rihanna not looking flawless — something about the neckline is bulky and she looks overwhelmed. Nonetheless, stripes in feathers-and-sheer give her the gait of a beautiful swan. Go forth, Rihswanna!

Kelly Rowland's knockout sheer paneling was brave — you could imagine one wrong move and the whole of it would spill out — but it underscored that K-Row doesn't get enough credit for her style. Very chic.
