The music world was turned upside down this weekend when Whitney Houston died suddenly at the age of 48. Just one day before the 2012 Grammys Awards, the singer was reportedly found in the bathtub of her hotel room. The shocking news cast a dark cloud over the Grammys, where Houston had often been a mainstay over the course of her 26-year long career.

Whitney won 6 Grammys in her time and graced the Grammys stage, red carpet and pre-parties several times over. Her statuesque model figure and stunning looks, combined with her bold style, always made her one to watch. Never one to shy away from bold colours, patterns, textures and sequins, Whitney knew how to dress like the superstar she was. She never shied away from the spotlight, never stepped hesitantly, and never apologized for her sartorial choices.

As the music world pays tribute to Whitney's musical legacy at the Grammys, we take a look at some of her past Grammys looks. Do you have a favourite? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook or Twitter

This is Whitney at the start of her career -- she's just about to win her first Grammy for "Saving All My Love." Her outfit is pure 80s, from the big hair to the puffed sleeves and tiered skirt. But that voice -- classic. Watch the performance, it's a knockout.
