We are mere days away from the Grammys, which means we’re eagerly anticipating what all our faves will roll up wearing to the red carpet. I mean, how will Rihanna top that pouffy, pink dress from last year? I don’t know, but I’m excited to find out.
In order to bide our time until the big day — and because looking at photos of Beyoncé never gets old — we rounded up some incredible photos from the 2006 show. Here’s hoping men will wear suits that actually fit this year. I have faith.

Because you might not immediately recognize Sean Paul, he made sure his initials were broadcasted on his necklace.

Can you imagine wearing this all night? How did you sit comfortably, Christina?? Did you stand the entire time? No thanks.
Jay Z and BeyoncéGetty Images
Red carpet Bey and Jay have come a long way (unrelated: I’m a poet and didn’t even know it!!!).
Wait. Was there a memo that men had to wear their sunglasses on the carpet? It was under a tent, just sayin’.

Nothing has ever been more MySpace than Pete Wentz’s hair in this photo.

If the Grammys were a wedding, it’d be extremely awkward, as Christina Aguilera wore white…
…as did Ciara…

And Jennifer Love Hewitt. I don’t know why she was there, but she was. In white.

The only way to dress up your baby bump in 2006? A dip-dye, animal print, one-shoulder dress.
Kelly ClarksonGetty Images
This was a great look in 2006 AND now.
Kanye WestGetty Images
Could that shirt be any more unbuttoned? No. The answer is no.
