Word on the street is that CBS is implementing a dress code at this year’s Grammy Awards. My question is what are J.Lo, Lady Gaga and Rihanna going to wear?!

CBS sent out an open email to their performing artists warning them not to wear anything revealing or risqué. The artists were told to “be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered.”

I happen to find humor in this because of the fact that the Grammy’s are the place where stars have been known to take the biggest risks with their fashion, wearing extremely risqué clothing. The Grammy’s are for celebrating some of music’s best performers, in all their creativeness. I don’t think that anyone should be putting restrictions on garment choices. I fully understand that CBS is making sure that covering themselves, (i.e. wardrobe malfunctions) but still the Grammy’s fashion risks are half the reason I even watch. Let’s take a look at some of the iconic fashion and risqué choices made in previous years.

Sorry Ms. Gaga.. this is not appropriate — I’m talking about the butt tan lines.

Well at least we know she waxes.

Not a huge fan of this dress… and it has nothing to do with the amount of skin showing.

J. Lo is known for her risqué looks at the Grammy’s, this particular year she decided to cover up a little bit (…yes this is considered covered-up for J. Lo).

Rihanna leaves very little to the imagination in her white Jean Paul Gaultier gown from 2011’s Grammy Awards.

I see nothing wrong with Fergie’s look and think that while it is risqué, it is done impeccably well and she still looks classy even with her undergarments showing.

If Rihanna follows the rules this year, she may actually be able to wear undergarments (…if she owns any).

Lady Gaga may have to stay in the egg all night long, considering her outfits are far from conservative and by no means would meet any dress code.

And the most iconic look of them all. Before J. Lo appeared in this dress at the 2000 Grammy Awards, very few stars would leave the house with this much skin revealed. Now every star you see is revealing far more than ever. Blame her CBS — JK!
