This is how one should think about red carpet style at the Juno Awards: If the MuchMusic Video Awards is the young, hip daughter who isn't afraid of trying out trends, then the Junos is the older aunt, desperately tying to fit in.
To be blunt, the sartorial doesn't mean the celebrity on Canada's premiere music night.
But that doesn't mean every artist who walks the red carpet is wearing a flop; in the last couple of years, we've seen many singers flaunt their stuff in fashionable outfits (think Feist in a gorgeous red lace gown and Metric's Emily Haines in an ethereal white dress at last year's show.)
This Sunday, we're expecting big things from our performers not just on stage but on the red carpet.
Will Chavril (that's Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger) wear matching punk rock outfits?
Will Carly Rae Jepsen (who's nominated for five awards this year) surprise us in a gown with a plunging neckline?
Will Justin Bieber show up and rip off his shirt?
We can't wait!
