With the 56th Grammy Awards just around the corner on Sunday night, we're getting ready to cheer on our favorite artists and, most importantly, judge their style.

And there's no better way to celebrate our anticipation for music's biggest night than taking a look back at the best gowns to grace the Grammy's red carpet!

Rihanna looked stunning at the big event last year, rocking a red A-line Azzedine Alaia gown. The airy and light material covered her up in all the right places while being translucent enough to provide RiRi's signature sex appeal. The Bajan beauty topped her look off with soft ombre curls and a red lip.

Back in 2010, Taylor Swift hit the red carpet in a gorgeous midnight blue Kaufman Franco gown. She showed off the off-the-shoulder neckline and added some serious bling with beautiful Lorraine Schwartz drop earrings.

And the Grammys statuettes weren't the only things that were golden at the 2011 award show! Heidi Klum flaunted her fabulous figure in a glittering gown by Julien MacDonald.

We can't wait to see which stars dazzle on the red carpet this year -- click "Launch Gallery" above to see the best dressed stars of Grammys' past!
