During the 1974 Grammy Awards, everyone stopped at the sight of Cher as she displayed her slim frame in an all-white ensemble with shiny embellishments.

The “Stop Crying Your Heart Out” songstress looked like she just stepped out of a fairytale book as she dressed in a white bikini-style top with a halter-like string design and a sheer white shawl.

Cher’s clothing, which exposed her toned core, also had a shiny green and purple butterfly in the center, which matched the oversize accessory on her hair.

The following year, the “Beatles” member and Ono walked the red carpet hand-in-hand, wearing classic pieces coupled with their unique sense of style.

The “4 in the Morning” songstress recently released the music video for her song “Let Me Reintroduce Myself.”

Lennon rocked a black suit paired with a black beanie and accessorized with several gold necklaces. Meanwhile, Ono looked radiant in a powder blue slip dress with a feathered shawl.

Lopez, who undoubtedly has one of the most incredible physiques for her age, had two memorable looks for the Grammy Awards. The first was in 1999 when the singer dressed in a sparkling gold mini dress.

The following year, the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” artist wowed the crowd with what could be the most iconic dress in history. Lopez looked gorgeous in a green sheer Versace dress with leaf prints.

Although the dress reached the floor, it was see-through for most parts and flaunted her bare core with an incredibly deep plunging neckline that had people staring.
