The Grammys are one of the most anticipated awards shows in the world. During this event, fans not only show their support for their favorite musical artists, but also look forward to the stunning looks that these artists serve up on the red carpet of music’s biggest night.
Over the years, the stars who have graced the Grammys have made bold statements through their fashion choices, allowing them to live rent-free in the minds of their audiences.
Thankfully, the 64th Annual Grammy Awards held Sunday (Manila Monday) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas did not disappoint as stars added their spin on new and past fashion trends.
For example, black ensembles have made a comeback, but it’s not the simple black look that audiences have seen on other red carpets.
Fil-Am singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo, 19, made her memorable Grammys debut wearing a tight black Vivienne Westwood dress with pink accents and a choker, complete with long gloves to soak up a 90s look.
On the other hand, Grammys sweetheart Billie Eilish opted for a deconstructed black suit jacket fashioned into a cape to match her hair and square sunglasses. Instead of heels and true to her style, Billie wore flat black boots that screamed both comfort and style.
Singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile also chose a black ensemble by donning standard black pants, but took it to the next level by pairing it with an ornately beaded and colorful jacket.
The nude dress trend, first seen at the Oscars, has also made an appearance on the Grammys red carpet. Singer-rapper Doja Cat embraced the trend and wore a sheer seafoam green Versace gown with a plunging neckline. Megan Thee Stallion also showed off some skin, but instead of wearing a see-through dress, she chose a one-shoulder dress with a skin-tight leopard print and a high leg slit.
Another fashion trend that came out on the awards night was to add a splash of color to stand out.
Rapper Saweetie paid homage to Madonna’s “Material Girl” look by donning a sparkly fuchsia Valentino ensemble consisting of a daring bikini top, loose ballgown skirt and elbow-length gloves complete with a wrap diamond neck.
The men, on the other hand, did not go wrong with a classic black suit but decided to add a personal touch by adding a touch of dynamism to their look.
Justin Bieber, one of the top nominees, wore an oversized suit featuring black platform Crocs with a hot pink knit beanie.
However, other performers thought wearing a colorful hat on the Grammys red carpet wasn’t going to be enough. DJ Diplo and Colombian singer J Balvin both sported bright blue hair with all-black suits. The splash of color made their look more eye-catching.
Balvin also wore jewelry, including earrings, a necklace, and rings, to further solidify his ensemble.
Finally, Aussie rapper The Kid Laroi also joined the men in opting for a classic black suit, but used his flowing locks to bring some vibrancy to the red carpet. Instead of opting for blue, he dyed his hair bright pink and wore a pearl necklace and a silver brooch.
