CBS -- Sunday's Grammy Awards will not only be a big show because of the countless performances and musical pairings, but also for the fashion that will undoubtedly be on display. The red carpet is practically a show itself because of the variety of looks and styles that stars will wear to Music's Biggest Night.

"The Grammys to me are actually one of the most exciting things I ever see," celebrity stylist David Zyla told CBS News. "I call it a fashion incubator because the rules are off. There are no rules. So you see things that are unexpected. And I think that there's more risk at the Grammys really than any other awards show."

 

 

Looking at the recent SAG Awards and Golden Globe red carpets may provide a hint into what stars could don in Los Angeles on Sunday night when the Grammy Awards air live on CBS.

"In fashion, going forward into spring we're really seeing these pretty pastels," said Zyla.

In addition to seasonal-inspired looks, keep an eye out for shades of blue. "Vivid blues always look great against the contrast of a red carpet," said Zyla. "I also predict that we'll see a little bit of yellow...And I feel like the spicy red trend will continue." Many actresses, including Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong'o, opted for the red look at the Globes earlier this month -- and both stars stunned.

 

 

 

 

 

Expect to see a midriff or two, as well, as the tea-length skirt and cropped-top combination may make an appearance on Sunday. A pregnant Kerry Washington rocked the cropped-top look at the Globes recently.

Also this weekend -- don't be surprised to see a star or two swapping a dress for some pants. "Pants are coming back both in a wide-leg and a striped trouser. Someone like Nicki Minaj could do a pant look. We may see a full fluid pant. We may see stars pay homage to a pant in some way shape or form," said Zyla.

Whether it's a cropped top, pants or shades of red, Sunday is bound to feature some buzz-worthy looks. And with Madonna and Katy Perry on the Grammys bill, things could get interesting to say the least. Newcomers, including singer Lorde, are also a few stars to watch on the fashion scene.

"Fashion right now is in a really great place," added Zyla. "We have more choices than we had in years -- the last couple of seasons. There's really variety and I think the Grammys are going to take real advantage of that and give us a fashion show this year."
