The Grammy Awards are back on Feb. 10, 2019, and while we're excited to find out who will win, we're even more excited to see the red carpet fashion. In anticipation of music's big night, Wonderwall.com is going back in time to see what the stars wore to the 2009 Grammys, starting with Katy Perry, who received her first Grammy nod that year for her hit single "I Kissed a Girl." Katy looked stunning in this strapless baby pink dress from Basil Soda. The retro gown's playful ruffle and jewel embellishments gave a perfect hint of sparkle that Katy accentuated with chunky diamond bracelets, rings and diamond earrings. Keep reading to see more Grammys fashion from a decade ago…

Taylor Swift took a decidedly more demure approach to her 2009 Grammys look in this black KaufmanFranco gown. Although Taylor's dress wasn't colorful, the subtle details like the wrapped waist, open back and accordion-pleated skirt made this simple dress scintillating.
If "Paper Planes" singer M.I.A. looks like she's got an extra glow, that's because she was nine months pregnant at the 2009 Grammys. Not only that, but the British star attended the ceremony (and later performed) on her actual due date! We love this puffy blue patterned baby doll dress with elongated, wide sleeves and ample ruffles. The peek of sunshine yellow added a fun pop of color and her super-comfortable blue tennies kept her very pregnant self a little more comfortable for the evening.
Of course we can't leave out the sheer black-and-white polka-dot dress from Harry Holland that M.I.A. wore during the 2009 Grammys. The singer donned this bump-revealing number onstage while performing "Swagger Like Us" with rappers Lil Wayne, JAY-Z and T.I.
"American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood had the Midas touch at the 2009 Grammys. The chart-topping singer, who won the Grammy for best female country vocal performance that year, glittered in this gold Zuhair Murad gown that featured intricate beadwork and a gorgeous open back.
The Jonas Brothers might have been first-time nominees at the 2009 Grammys, but they arrived at the award show in impeccable style. While Nick Jonas went all-black in a Burberry suit, brother Kevin Jonas opted for a classic black-and-white Versace look. Joe Jonas also donned Versace, but he upped the style quotient with a shimmering suit that brought some extra dazzle to the red carpet.
While there's nothing wrong with Solange Knowles's yellow minidress at the 2009 Grammys, it seemed more appropriate for an afterparty. What we do love is how the perfectly fitted dress shows off Solange's amazing legs (looks like big sister Beyonce isn't the only one with a killer bod) and how she accessorized with a colorful cross-body purse.
We're not sure why Dwayne Johnson was at the 2009 Grammys, or who designed his incredibly sexy charcoal gray suit, but we do think he looked like a snack. The Rock, who still sported hair a decade ago, paired his muscle-enhancing suit with an open-collared blue dress shirt and chunky neck chain, giving him a serious stud-muffin vibe.
Actress-singer Zooey Deschanel wasn't up for a Grammy in 2009, but she still managed to steal the spotlight in this playful, single-strap minidress from Luella. The lilac and silver look was accessorized with jewelry from House of Lavande including diamond earrings.
Former couple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton were all smiles on the 2009 Grammys red carpet. While Robin looked dapper in his all-black suit, Paula radiated romance in this black and pale peach pencil dress with a flared hem and poof shoulders.
Paying homage to The Beatles' album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," Coldplay members Chris Martin, Will Champion, Guy Berryman and Jon Buckland arrived at the 2009 Grammys in colorful military jackets and dark trousers. Their jackets, which included various patches and embellishments, gave the British band a playful look on the red carpet and later, the award-show stage where they accepted three Grammys including best rock album.
A then-16-year-old Miley Cyrus looked incredibly grown up in this dramatic black gown from Max Azria at the 2009 Grammys. The actress-singer's dual-tone dress featured a playful floral embellishment along with an open back, which Miley expertly paired with drop earrings, a stack of bangle bracelets and jet-black nail polish.
Surprisingly, some fashion critics took issue with singer Sheryl Crow's dramatic blue Toni Maticevski gown at the 2009 Grammys. We think Sheryl, who was nominated for best pop vocal album that night, looked stunning in this shimmering off-the-shoulder asymmetrical dress. The only thing we didn't like were her strappy black sandals and nude toenails, which made her otherwise breathtaking look feel incomplete.
Oh, Paula Abdul, what were you thinking? The "Forever Your Girl" singer and "American Idol" host landed on nearly every worst dressed list following the 2009 Grammys after she showed up in this yellow Basil Soda Couture gown. The dress, which featured heavy accordion pleats and garish metallic sleeve embellishments with a matching belt, looked clunky and futuristic — in the worst way possible.
Nominated for best female country vocal performance, LeAnn Rimes arrived at the 2009 Grammy Awards wearing this color-contrasting dress from Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti. Keeping her hair long and loose, LeAnn let the dress's unique studded, corseted waist be the focal point of her look.
At the 2009 Grammy Awards, "American Idol" finalist-turned-Hollywood star Jennifer Hudson snagged her first Grammy win (for best R&B album) in this gorgeous RM by Roland Mouret dress. The "Dreamgirls" actress accessorized with blue suede Christian Louboutin pumps, a chunky diamond bracelet and dangling diamond earrings.
Actress Kate Beckinsale brought serious fashion drama to the 2009 Grammys red carpet and we loved every minute of it. Her black strapless Reem Acra mermaid gown, which featured delicate beading and layers upon layers of black and cream tulle, would still look fierce on the red carpet today.
"Snakes on a Plane" star Samuel L. Jackson presented at the 2009 Grammys, but he didn't let the pressure of being onstage in front of millions influence his fashion for the show. In fact, the actor seemed awkwardly underdressed in this ensemble that featured a graphic T, a baggy suit jacket, corduroy pants and a skullcap.
Another "American Idol" winner who popped up at the 2009 Grammys was Jordin Sparks, who was nominated for best pop collaboration for her song "No Air." While we love Jordin, we can't help but think her sleeveless floral-print gown was an unflattering choice. The singular print made Jordin look like she was wrapped in a tablecloth and that weird floral candy-cane embellishment at the bust only made us more confused.
Paris Hilton was all kinds of extra at the 2009 Grammys. The hotel heiress and reality TV star wore this colorful throwback 2003 Versace micro-mini that looked more like a swimsuit or negligee (or possibly both). Fun fact: The dress just happens to be the same one Jennifer Garner wore in the 2004 rom-com "13 Going on 30."
Late R&B singer Natalie Cole brought sunshine to the 2009 Grammys red carpet in this stunning one-shoulder silk gown. Before taking home the award for best traditional pop vocal album, Natalie shined in this floor-length multi-tone dress. Our only complaint? That chunky gold chain adorning her bust. It didn't add anything to her dress and interrupted the fluidity of her silhouette.
Rapper and hip-hop star will.i.am had fun with his fashion at the 2009 Grammys. Donning a baby blue suit jacket, gray dress shirt, dark slacks and gold-tone sneakers, Will brought a pop of color and charm to the red carpet. We love how the "Shout & Scream" performer made his contrasting look coherent by incorporating gold throughout including on the bill of his hat and in his bow tie and pocket square.
We kind of love everything about T.I.'s 2009 Grammys look. The rapper, who won the award that night for best rap performance by a duo, paired his taupe tuxedo jacket, matching vest and crisp white button-up with loose-fitting distressed denim and a fresh pair of kicks. His fiancée-turned-wife-turned-ex Tiny went for full-on sparkle in this sequined spaghetti-strap pencil dress and jeweled sandals.
At the 2009 Grammys, Lady Antebellum members Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood received their first-ever nominations — for best new artist and best country performance. Although they didn't take home any awards, the trio looked like winners on the red carpet. While Hillary went Old Hollywood in a red satin dress with beaded black shoulders, Charles kept his look edgy in all-black and Dave channeled a classic style with his brown and black suit.
Chinese-American actress Bai Ling hit the 2009 Grammys red carpet in this bubblegum pink floral mini. While some fashion critics took issue with her look, we think the big, funky bow paired with flashy gold cuff bracelets and strappy gold sandals made her look like an adorably wrapped present.
