Music’s biggest night, the Annual Grammy Awards, was held on Sunday in Los Angeles, with many of our favourite artists in colourful attendance. If you’re a religious follower of this star-studded event, you would know that the music is only one part of why people get excited about it. The other part is, *fashion*. The Grammy Awards show is basically prom night for artists and has been the site of many phenomenal looks and looks we wished we could wipe out from our brains forever.
For the 66th Grammy awards, a lot of the nominees and attendees went for elegance and glamour, with dashes of sexiness, while others unfortunately went off course. We rounded up some of the best and worst (sorry) looks of the night.
Our Favourite Looks (In No Particular Order)
Time after time, Ayra Starr has proven to us that she is the ultimate pop girlie that young Nigerian women need. She may not have won a Grammy this year, but she has announced herself as a glowing star with this whimsical sari-like two-piece. It’s a ten over ten.
The Best New Artist nominee and “ICU” singer stunned in this sparkly beaded plunging neck line dress. An absolute vision to behold.
The fit is fitting, the sheer is sheering and the ruffles are ruffling. This is the dress you wear to become the youngest African artist to win a Grammy. That shade of green was very dangerous, but she managed to pull it off. Congratulations Tyla!!
The “On my Mama” singer gave us a sophisticated glamour in this bronze Versace corset dress.
Ms. Walker ate this avant-garde look down. How does someone look this good in a head-to-toe feather ensemble AND have a defined waistline? One word: MOTHER.
The singer was feeling and looking like pure hotness in a cut-out embellished dress and minimal jewelry.
The Grammy nominee was a show-stopper in this sequin gown by Armani Privé. In my moderately humble opinion, no single human has any business looking that incredible.
Easily one of the best dressed at the Grammys 2024. Hollywood’s newest mom looked absolutely gorgeous in this Gucci piece.
Our OG White IT girl walked the red carpet in a shimmery sequin aquamarine gown and matching glittery accessories and she did not disappoint.
She looked gorgeous in this princess ball gown. The choice of color—white, lended the look a clean simplicity. We loved everything about it.
The “Players” rapper oozed chicness in this black blazer body suit, very Rihanna-esque. The lime-green feather jacket was the icing on this cool cake.
Least Favourite Looks (In no particular order)
This Vampire Diary alumni deserves better. I need everyone involved in putting this look together, plus the person that drove her to the red carpet, arrested immediately.
The “Paint the Town Red” singer has made it clear to us on several occasions that she does not care to cater to the male gaze, and the expectations of her fans on how she should live her life. Fair enough. If this is another attempt at being controversial, she won. She looks like she hasn’t had a bath in 4 days and that’s worth talking about.
Denim on denim, fur, big gold cross, obnoxious belt, altogether? Yes actually. I see the vision and if styled properly, it can be a hit. The princess of rap though, did not understand the assignment.
*Inserts yawn that threatens to swallow everything within my vicinity* Next, please.
I really want to love this look, I really want too, but I can’t. The custom gown by Schiaparelli screams classic Hollywood diva, but the long black gloves, the layered necklaces and the hair that is pushed to the front, are all wrong.
Who lied to her that it was Rag Day she would be attending and not the Grammys? It’s not good oh.
This is the outfit you wear to go and receive an award at the 66th Amazon Warrior Princess Award Show. Not the shoes though, those custom tabis are everything.
I sat with it. I took it in. I let it marinate. I even opened my mind to the possibilities. My conclusion was that this list will be incomplete without the dress.
It’s the Grammys! Stand out! Make odd choices! Be audacious! But not like this!
No one can convince me that Kelly’s stylist doesn’t hate her. Period.
Lana Del Ray
The head bow, the hand bow, the waist bow, the shoe bow, all at once??? The length is terrible, and the look of darkness is reminiscent of a funeral. Lana, we will mourn your missed opportunity to slay at music’s biggest night.
All in all, this wasn’t an incredible fashion year for the Grammys. It seems like a lot of Stars are losing style recipes. Let’s see what next year brings.
