IF YOU were walking on the Grammys red carpet this year, you were either in one of three fashion camps - channelling the Victorian era, cleavage or the bizarre.

Or if you're really keen, you do both.

Stars like former Disney star Demi Lovato, country singer Carrie Underwood and singer Sophie Beem all stayed away from the bizarre and looked fantastic.

Lovato wore a gorgeous gold, high neck see-through dress with a cut-out by Julien Macdonald and looked a million bucks. She also looked like she'd taken some inspiration from Kim Kardashian.

Underwood donned a stunning red lace dress, with bell sleeves and a thigh-high split. She too had a cut-out on her chest.

And finally, the outrageous.

The Grammys are known for the bizarre red carpet looks and this year certainly didn't disappoint.

We had CeeLo Green in a gold outfit that make him look like a walking Oscar statue, Girl Crush basically decided all she wanted to wear was plastic balls from a ball pit and Jacqueline Van Bierk's outfit was covered in shiny CDs.

Joy Villa's dress was a political one, with the red, white and blue sparkly gown covered in Trump's name and his slogan "Make America Great Again".
