The 63rd annual Grammy Awards was one of the most highly anticipated awards shows of all time. It’s amazing to see our favorite celebrities take their Grammy outfits to the next level every year.

For some people, it’s all about the awards, and I totally get that. I’ve spent months praying that Kaytranada and Harry Styles would come out on top. On the other hand, I think it’s worthwhile to dive into some of the best outfits of the night. These jaw-dropping looks need to be seen!

1. Dua Lipa in Atelier Versace

Honestly, Dua Lipa can do no wrong. If the entire awards show was just Dua walking up and down the red carpet in this gorgeous sparkly dress, I wouldn’t even be mad. The butterfly detail on the front makes it playful and cute too. It’s like the adult version of your favorite childhood fairy costume (in the best way possible).

2. Jhené Aiko in Monsoori

Thank goodness Jhené Aiko graced us with this unbelievable Monsoori look — I’ll never forget this. Bahraini designer, Shaima Al Mansoori, is definitely one to watch in the next few years. The designer also created a wonderful red carpet Grammys look for Bebe Rhexa back in 2019.

3. Harry Styles in Gucci

Harry Styles is no stranger to a killer Gucci outfit and a feathery scarf. It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch him push the boundaries of fashion while taking risks in the music world. Let’s just say it paid off.

4. Chloe and Halle Bailey in Louis Vuitton

Obviously, Chloe and Halle Bailey looked sensational in their elegant Louis Vuitton outfits. The two sisters never disappoint. I personally loved the slit in Chloe’s full-length dress, it added a great dimension to the dress.

5. Taylor Swift in Oscar de la Renta

Most people wouldn’t go crazy for a dress that looks like a bunch of flowers stitched together. However, I think Taylor Swift really nailed it with this one. The dress is true to her easy-going, wholesome personality.

6. Chika in Nike

Chika has been on my radar since I discovered her hit song ‘INDUSTRY GAMES’ on Spotify. I knew that she was an incredible musician, and it turns out she’s a fashion icon too. This head-to-toe Nike outfit is perfect!

7. Bad Bunny in Burberry

I’m a sucker for a simple Grammys outfit with a statement piece. Burberry was a great choice for Bad Bunny. I’ll be honest, I’m not that familiar with his music, but I can appreciate a great outfit coupled with funky orange glasses and a cute little sunflower to hold.

8. Megan Thee Stallion in Dolce and Gabbana

There is no denying that this burnt orange Dolce and Gabbana is everything and more. As one of this year’s Grammy performers and nominees, Megan had every right to wear such a stunning outfit.

9. Billie Eilish and FINNEAS in Gucci

With a sibling like Billie Eilish, it’s difficult for FINNEAS to make show-stopping fashion statements on the red carpet. I can gladly say that the sibling duo killed it in pastel pink. I love how they were able to co-ordinate their outfits while expressing their personal style.



10. Phoebe Bridgers in Thom Browne

Anyone can wear a basic black dress to the Grammys and call it a day. However, only Phoebe Bridgers can rock a high-fashion skeleton dress and make it work. I’ll acknowledge that this outfit isn’t for everyone, but I think it’s kind of cool. The American singer-songwriter has always loved the skeleton aesthetic and this was the perfect chance to give it another go.

11. Trevor Noah in Gucci

We can’t forget our host of the night, Trevor Noah. He opted for a sleek Gucci suit and the man couldn’t have made a better choice. As one of the major focal points of the Grammys, he was under pressure to look good – and he certainly delivered. This is a classic example of “less is more”.

It’s lovely to see that award shows like the Grammys can happen during the pandemic. Better yet, celebrities are still inspired to dress up, look good, and celebrate their talent. Congratulations to all the Grammy Award winners of 2021!
