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.
