Last week, the biggest names in the music industry came together for the long-awaited 61st annual Grammy awards. Childish Gambino, Cardi B, Dua Lipa, and Kacey Musgraves were amongst the night’s biggest winners, but these red-carpet attendees win a place on our best-dressed list.
1. Leon Bridges
Soul singer Leon Bridges was unmissable in this custom Bode suit that paid homage to his home state – Texas. The yellow corduroy suit was covered in hand-drawn images representing various aspects of his personal life. It’s a touching and memorable choice.
2. Ella Mai
English R&B singer Ella Mai looked regal in this navy blue gown by Lebanese label Ashi Studio. The voluminous piece, paired with matching shoes and a subtle choice of jewelry and make-up—allows the 24-year-old to stand out in a way that remains classic.
3. Keiynan Lonsdale
Keiynan Lonsdale is always a strong contender for the best-dressed list on any red carpet, and this year they didn’t disappoint. Photographed here at the Republic Records’ afterparty, Lonsdale’s outfit is a perfect mix of casual and dressed-up.
4. Cardi B
It’s the dress that has divided the fashion-world, and personally, I love it. Whatever you think of the vintage Thierry Mugler ‘oyster’ dress, there’s no denying that this iconic choice will be remembered for years to come.
5. Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa’s understated silver gown is positively stunning. The glittering Versace dress forms a classic, yet slightly futuristic figure and paired with the singer’s minimalist make-up and hair choices, it is really able to shine.
6. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus rocked the classic black tux look better than anyone on the carpet with this simple, yet chic number by Thierry Mugler. The understated suit was really elevated by perfect hair and make-up with a large helping of unusual, silver jewelry.
7. Jada Pinkett-Smith
Meanwhile, Jada Pinkett-Smith brought us back to the roaring twenties with this period-inspired vintage Cavalli gown. A perfect choice of color, hints of silver and a dramatic, feathery train made this a dreamy and unforgettable look.
8. Kane Brown
Kane Brown and his wife Katelyn get points for the best-matching couple on the carpet. His gold-toned brocade shirt under a classic black tuxedo pair perfectly with her deep red gown.
9. Zuri Hall
Maybe pink really is the new black! This bold fuchsia gown paired with a subtle matching pink eyeshadow is my favorite look this evening. The combination of the sea-shell-like shape with a light, floaty material allows Hall to stand-out without being overwhelmed.
10. Alessia Cara
Alessia Cara breathes new life into the Little Black Dress and red lip combo. The modernized lace pattern and midriff cut paired with gold, hanging earrings is a stunning new look for the 22-year-old singer, who usually opts for a more laid-back style.
11. Tayla Parx
Another look that was featured on both best and worst-dressed lists this year, I think this ensemble looks absolutely adorable on Tayla Parx. It’s colorful, cute, and I am HERE for the silver hair-clips and eyeliner combo. This whole outfit is a pretty, girly dream.
12. Hennessy Carolina
Orange is a bold choice, and not many people could pull off this eye-catching look, but Hennessy Carolina makes it look easy. With sleeves and a bold hair-cut like that, Carolina looks like she is ready to take over the world!
13. Alicia Keys
This girl is on fire! Alicia Keys is the queen of the no-makeup look, and here she reminds us why. It allows her stunning red dress to flourish alongside her simple, silver jewelry and makes the camera focus on the real star of the show—that absolutely perfect ‘do!
14. Kacey Musgraves
The newest country music star to take the world by storm, this pretty pink princess gown by Valentino is inspired by her own album cover. The tulle, ballerina-like gown fans out at the top and her hair and make-up combo is a subtle nod to the seventies theme that would run through the rest of the night.
15. Chloe x Halle
The ethereal duo is stunning here in their classic black figure-hugging dresses, embellished with whispy, yet structural statement details. Halle’s cloud-like arrangements paired with a silky bow is heavenly, whilst Chloe’s geometric sleeves and silver earrings are equally dreamlike.
American R&B singer H.E.R was one of the big winners at this year’s Grammy awards, and her outfit choice was suitably fit for a star. From the purple glasses to the hoop earrings, and the shimmering, glittering, multi-colored jumpsuit, there’s nothing about this outfit that I don’t love.
17. Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae is the queen of many things, and haute couture is one of them. The bold, structured shoulders and asymmetrical hemline combined with soft pleats, make this one of the best looks of the evening. The hat, which is actually made with gold safety pins, and the dress pay homage to the classic 1950s ‘New Look’ whilst remaining thoroughly modern, and new wave. The gold, mismatched earrings elevate this outfit to perfection.
18. St Vincent
This brocade-esque cape dress is really elevated by the pairing of a holographic floral pattern and heels. The silky bow frames and draw attention back to their face, and that perfect red lip.
19. Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross is someone you can always count on for a solid red-carpet look, and she proves it once again with this Ralph & Russo number. Ellis-Ross is a master of the two-piece and this bold green and gold snake embossed choice is one few others could pull off.
20. Bebe Rexha
After struggling to find a dress because designers dubbed Rexha ‘too big’, she wowed the rest of the carpet with this red taffeta princess piece by Monsoori. The statement drop-necklace is a perfect choice to pair with the grand gown.
21. Lady Gaga
Known for her bold fashion choices, Lady Gaga’s dress is understated, classic, and safe. But it works. Paired with a matching necklace and shoes, dark nail polish, a masterful smokey eye, and frosty hair, and lips, the look comes together perfectly styled and might be one of her most solid looks yet.
22. Blanca Blanco
American actress Blanca Blanco is known for her bold fashion choices, but this outfit combo is more reminiscent of some kind of fairy. Its light, airy fabric and pastel shades paired with subtle jewelry make this a truly dreamy look.
23. Margo Price
Just getting shoes on while pregnant is hard enough, but Margo Price rocks this Renaissance-style dress by Kimberly Parker alongside her 6-month bump as if it were easy. The long, ruffled sleeves, heart-shaped neckline, and silver stars make this scarlet gown one of the red carpet’s most memorable looks.
