At the Grammys, there is one credo: Go big or go home. Music’s top night is a fashion free-for-all — with looks running the gamut from stylish to sassy. Here’s a peek at the most memorable fashion moments:

Sheryl Crow

Crow, 60, a nominee for best American roots song, sported a black, strapless gown with ruffles and a thigh-high slit. She performed a tribute to the late Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac. “For me to get to tribute Christine, because they’ve been — the band and Christine — so influential to me, but also to get to do it with Mick [Fleetwood], it’s so deep and meaningful to me,” Crow told Bobby Bones during the E! Live Grammy red carpet show.

​​​Viola Davis

Davis, 57, shimmered in a color-blocked Naeem Khan fringe dress. The star of The Woman King won a Grammy for her audiobook narration of her 2022 memoir, Finding Me. The honor secured her the rare EGOT status —  a winner of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. “Oh, my God! I wrote this book to honor the 6-year-old Viola, to honor her life, her joy, her trauma, everything,” Davis said in her acceptance speech. “And it has just been such a journey. I just EGOT!”​​​

Shania Twain

​Shania Twain, 57, rocked a black and white polka-dot power suit with a matching hat by London designer Harris Reed. “It was black and white, so I needed to have a little splash of color,” she said, flicking her bright red hair. Twain told E’s Laverne Cox that she’s “In a very happy place right now. … Just coming out of this whole COVID phase makes me feel light and bubbly and happy and fun.”​​

Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah, 52, accented her caftan-style black gown with emerald earrings. Stopping on the red carpet to speak with E’s Laverne Cox, Latifah offered advice to young performers: “I would say to you now is the time to do whatever the eff you want with your career. … Don’t be a pawn, control your career, speak from the heart, say what you want to say.” Latifah performed as part of the celebration of 50 years of hip-hop. “We had to fight to get on the Grammys quite a time ago, so it’s great to be here to celebrate this in front of the entire world with people who were my mentors, who showed us everything about how to move and shake and perform.”

​​Bonnie Raitt

Raitt, 73, racked three Grammy wins — for best American roots song, best Americana performance and song of the year for “Just Like That.” But on the red carpet, she told E’s Bobby Bones: “We don’t do what we do for the awards — we just do it and we’re keeping a lot of people working and having a lot of fun. I can’t imagine staying home again for 2½ years. We’ve been on the road eight months this year just having a blast. … I’ll be doing this until I drop.”

​Blige, 52, sparkled in a sleek silver frock with sexy cutouts at the hips. “I’m grateful to still be nominated, to still be doing what I love,” Blige, who received six Grammy nominations, said. “I gotta be smiling.” E’s Laverne Cox lauded Blige for her anthem called “Good Morning Gorgeous.” Blige said it’s important to work on self-love: “You do have to confess it every day. It’s work. It’s not just overnight. But once you know that’s who you are, it’s going to continue to be work. And that’s just it, it’s consistent work. ... You just have to believe in that you’re better than what you were.”
