The Grammy Awards 2013 event on Sunday saw plenty of skin show despite the strict dress code that CBS had issued to prevent any incidental wardrobe malfunctions on the red carpet.
CBS, the broadcaster of the Grammy Awards 2013, had released a wardrobe directive to all celebrities attending the event, asking them to avoid wearing see-through material, thong-type costumes and outfits that expose private body parts.
This year's Grammys was not much different from the previous years as far as fashion is concerned. Ignoring the wardrobe memo, several celebrities paraded on the red carpet walk in outfits that showed lots of skin.
Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez was the centre of attraction at the 2000 Grammy Awards. Her see-through green outfit that exposed her cleavage down to her navel remains to be one the most memorable moments of the red carpet. The black Anthony Vaccarello dress she wore on Sunday was no less shocking, with its huge slit giving a complete view of her right thigh.
Katy Perry's outfit gave a good view of her cleavage, while Kelly Rowland revealed lots of skin through her see-through striped gown. Several other celebrities oozed their sex appeal on the red carpet with racy outfits.
