Fresh off her Dream Girls release in 2006, Beyonce was feeling floaty in this wispy patterned gown, a little feistier in 2009 in a red Roberto Cavalli dress and Drunk In Love in a see-through Michael Costello gown at the GRAMMY's this year,

In 2010 the singer flirted with feathers from an earlier Givenchy collection, and just a year later switched up her style to warrior princess in Emilio Pucci. Today the mom-to-be is effortlessly fab and more sophisticated in Pucci's patterns than ever before.

In 2004 the actress didn't take the red carpet too seriously in this playful party dress, six year years later she got sophisticated and softened up her in-your-face style for nudes. Now, Washington has come into her own chic style, which means a Prada crop top even with a baby bump!

In 2002, when Keys hit the scene it was all about tapping into her tomboy style, which later sweetened up channeling that of a Disney princess. Now, this girl's on fire in futuristic styles like this Armani Prive gown at the GRAMMY's.

Zoe Saldana came onto the scene 2004 pretty and proper in ruffles but spiced things up in Dolce & Gabbana's signature leopard print in 2009. This "best dressed" beauty is now taking fashion risks in Prabal Gurung at the Golden Globes.

Sweet little Robyn Fenty was a Bajan beauty with island infused style, but when this good girl went bad she hit the 2011 GRAMMY's rocking Jean Paul Gaultier and more recently baring thigh and cleavage simultaneously in a canary colored silk robe.

The Queen was setting it off in the 90s in silk at the Soul Train Awards and again in a ballet pink dress, but reached pure perfection in Carmen Marc Valvo at the GRAMMY's.
