It’s the music industry’s biggest night out – the Grammy Awards – and the red carpet preceding the show on Sunday (January 26) was packed with A-list musicians young and old.

And while the Grammy carpet usually features adventurous fashion, this year’s celebrities chose more modest gowns and outfits.

Madonna was escorted by her son, David Banda. The pop star was decked out in a Ralph Lauren black suit with a matching hat and walking cane.

Katy Perry literally came dressed in music. The singer wore a white Valentino gown, accented with musical notes.

And Taylor Swift looked like a silver statue, in a body-hugging metallic Gucci gown.
