Music’s brightest stars brought their fashion A-game to the Grammys red carpet, strutting their stuff in bold colors, slinky styles, major bling and barely-there gowns.
While the Oscars are known for embracing a certain brand of Hollywood glamour, the Grammys are in your face. Some of the most iconic fashion looks have emerged on music’s biggest night, like Jennifer Lopez’s plunging green Versace gown in 2000.
Here’s a look at what the A-listers wore to the Grammys.
Pops of color
Lizzo, who won Record of the Year for “About Damn Time,” served up major fashion drama in a voluminous orange Dolce and Gabbana cape with huge floral blooms over a sleek corseted gown in the same vibrant hue. She wore peach eye shadow, fingerless mesh gloves and nail art to match.
Taylor Swift, who won the Best Music Video Grammy for “All Too Well,” stunned in a two-piece bejeweled bluish-purple Roberto Cavalli long-sleeved crop top and long skirt, the hues in keeping with her album title “Midnights.”
Adele, who won for Best Pop Solo Performance, wowed in a full-length Louis Vuitton burgundy gown with sculptural shoulder ruffles and a plunging neckline, her hair cascading in soft waves.
Super producer Pharrell Williams rocked up in a quilted red leather ensemble with a (faux?) fur coat and uber-cool blinged out sunglasses.
And pop dreamboat Harry Styles, who won Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, obviously couldn’t choose which color to go with so he wore them all. The British singer donned a glittering Harlequin-patterned sleeveless jumpsuit encrusted with Swarovski crystals, leaving his chest bare to show off his ink.
Country folk rocker Brandi Carlile donned a sparkly black Versace suit with a long coat and a fuchsia blouse that was more readily visible during her performance of her Grammy-winning song “Broken Horses.”
Bold in black
Of course, some stars went for basic, but sexy, black.
Olivia Rodrigo, last year’s Grammy winner for Best New Artist, adopted the naked dress trend seen on several recent show biz red carpets in a sheer floor-length black gown.
Brazilian superstar Anitta, up for Best New Artist honors this year, also understood the assignment—she slayed in a strapless Versace gown with see-through detailing and a long train.
And Doja Cat, who wowed fashionistas at Paris Fashion Week with her exuberant looks and wild makeup, showed up in another Versace dress, a one-shoulder latex frock that hugged her curves. She wore it with long gloves.
As the new top Grammy winner of all time with 32 statuettes, Beyonce is in a class by herself, and that applies to her fashion as well.
The 41-year-old superstar arrived at the gala more than an hour late—due to traffic, host Trevor Noah said—in a strapless Gucci corset gown with a silver skirt cut up to her hip and rippling out in shimmering ruffles into a train. Elbow-length gloves completed the look of the new reigning queen of the Grammys. —AFP
