Jay-Z, Chris Brown, Frank Ocean And More: Best-Dressed Guys At The Grammys (PHOTOS)

Red carpets usually belong to the ladies, naturally. It's way too hard to compete with floor-sweeping gowns, flesh-baring designs and tons of razzle dazzle.

And it was definitely still the case at the 2013 Grammys Sunday night with countless music industry mavens turning heads left and right. However, there were definitely a few fellas that grabbed our attention--for better and for worse.

On the "better" side there was Jay-Z, who looked dapper in a black velvet Tom Ford jacket. Chris Brown looked so fresh and so clean in head-to-toe white Lanvin. We also loved Frank Ocean's unconventional suit and Nas' gold smoking jacket.

As much as we adore Prince, we could have done without this witness-protection looking getup. A hook, sunglasses and a cane? There was way too much going. Along that same line of excess, music producer Terius "The-Dream" Nash wore a "parental advisory" beanie under a "Boyz N the Hood" baseball cap, making for a major eyesore.

Thankfully, Jay-Z stated the obvious while on stage to accept the award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, saying "I'd like to thank the swap meet for his hat."

Check out all those looks and more in the slideshow below.
