Lady GaGa often stole the spotlight with her outrageous fashion. In fact, the Mother Monster made headlines with her giant egg entrance at last year's Grammy Awards. 2012 offered a different story though. While she put on yet another wacky outfit, her number was definitely less controversial than that of raptress Nicki Minaj.
Coming to the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, GaGa opted to go with a custom Chanel creation. The 25-year-old, who skipped the red carpet and headed straight to her seat inside Los Angeles' Staples Center, showed off a lot of her skin in the see-through number but covered her face behind a mask of black netting.
29-year-old Minaj, on the other hand, caused quite a scene when she arrived on the red carpet of the Sunday, February 12 event. Channeling her inner Little Red Riding Hood in a red hooded gown by Donatella Versace, the "Roman Holiday" singer was escorted by an old man dressed like the Pope.
GaGa and Minaj were nominated for three Grammys this year, but both of them failed to bring home any golden gramophones. While the "Marry the Night" singer was unable to secure Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo, the "Moment 4 Life" MC had to give up on the kudos for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance.
