The Most Daring Dresses Ever Worn At The Grammy Awards

3. Sheryl Crow In Cavalli, 2005
Sheryl Crow was nominated for "The First Cut Is the Deepest" in 2005, and decided to amp up her red carpet look with an unusual cut-out. Her Roberto Cavalli halter dress had a puzzle piece cut-out that extended across her abs and all the way to her belly button. On that same side, her skirt had a side slit that raced all the way to her hip. It was bold and unexpected.

The dress's color was also an interesting touch, especially since she walked the red carpet with her then-boyfriend, Lance Armstrong. Fashion pundits joked that it was the same bright yellow as a Live Strong bracelet. (Taking it a step further, she also wore the $1 rubber bracelet on her wrist! Now that's commitment to your partner's endeavors.)

Crow presented the award for record of the year that evening, and when she went onstage she joked that she made her dress from Armstrong's old yellow Tour de France jerseys. You have to love Crow's sense of humor.

The gown came from Cavalli's 2005 Spring Ready-to-Wear collection, whose theme was "Fashion Traveler." You can just as easily imagine Crow wearing this number to a Greece cliff side bar as to a red carpet.
