The Grammy Awards last weekend saw some iconic winning moments and lively performances, this also played through into the outfits from the night. The red carpet was filled with breathtaking and fun looks, here are some of the best.
Jameela Jamil’s dress was the perfect collaboration of classic and modern. The elegant ballgown silhouette paired with the sheer cutouts and blue tiled pieces worked well together to create this futuristic yet traditional dress. The matte detailing of the tiled pieces also created an original step away from the typical sequin encrusted dress.
Another beautifully simple Chanel dress making an appearance on this year’s Award Season’s red carpets. The magical detailing of the sequin gold stars paired with Maggie Rogers’ natural make up created an ethereal look. The light elegancy of this dress is then given an edge with the bag accessory, the signature Chanel bag but with an added bottle twist.
Ariana Grande’s dress was smoking hot! An exciting update on the typical Giambattista Valli dress which so many celebrities wear on the red carpet with the unusual, yet beautiful ashy colouring. Grande looked as if she was floating on a cloud as she waltzed down the carpet. It brought the old Hollywood glamour to the typically more modern Grammy Awards, enhanced even more with the matching opera gloves.
Ben Platt was not clowning around in this argyle patterned suit. I love the cropped double breasted shape of the blazer, paired with the pattern and glitter it’s an updated and cooler version of the typical suit. The glittery theme continues to the subtle studding of the shoes, all working together to be create something different without being too intense.
This Baja East look is incredible from head to toe, it’s perfect Studio 54 realness. I love the complete and utterly perfect matching of the entire outfit, like the hat (which opened and closed in case this outfit needed anymore drama) matching the strands of sequins on the flares of the leg. The colour is beautifully rich and makes the glittery accessories look luxurious, saving it from the easy opportunity for it to become garish and cheap looking. I don’t think I have ever needed an outfit more in my entire life.
I honestly can’t figure out how Billie Eilish does it, but she really manages to make me love her loose fitted sporty looks. The ability to make a bowling shirt look cool yet also red carpet appropriate is an achievement in itself. The glittery and puffy sleeved turtleneck shirt underneath helps to make this more appropriate for a high class event, bringing an element of smart to the otherwise more casual look. I also love how she really emphasises a branded monogram, yet somehow manages to escape from it becoming tacky with the Gucci monogram covering her outfit, face mask, gloves and nails. Less is more never applied less, more is more!
The 90s called? It doesn’t need its outfit back because Dua Lipa nails it so perfectly. It’s sophisticated with its silky length and silhouette yet also edgy with the glistening blue eyeshadow, cool top knot and 90s shaped corset top. The two different yet complimenting textures of the top and the skirt also bring another element of classy edginess.
