The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards took place last night in an emotional night filled with grief, celebration, and of course, good music. The night was overshadowed by the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant, one of the world’s greatest athletes; a tragedy made only more poignant by the show’s location in the Staples Center. Still, stars did their best to celebrate the music industry’s most talented.
The red carpet was an excellent preview of the unforgettable night to come as both celebrities and their stylists brought their best. An abundance of fringe brought an often-overlooked style to the forefront. Billy Porter’s Baja East ensemble stole the show. His motorized hat gave the internet a fringe heavy reveal it won’t soon forget. The material proved to be a favorite of rising star Rosalía as well. The Spanish pop star’s fringe-filled looks secured her a spot on the top of every best-dressed list.
Billie Eilish took home 5 Grammy Awards, including four of the show’s biggest awards, all while wearing the color of the night: lime green. Matching her iconic green roots, the star’s head-to-toe Gucci look brought the citrus shade into the spotlight. Ariana Grande’s Cinderella-inspired ballgown, Lizzo’s retro-glam ensemble, an FKA Twig’s gothic fantasy were also among the night’s most talked-about styles.
Read on for the biggest red carpet trends of the evening.
Billy Porter stole the show yet again in an electric blue disco-ready suit and a motorized hat to match. Creating the most meme-worthy moments of the night, the wide-brim hat was remotely controlled by his stylist, which allowed the curtain of fringe to open and close at a moment’s notice. Rosalia also brought fringe front and center last night in an Alexander Wang dress and white fringed bodysuit.
The clear winner of the night was Billie Eilish, who took home 5 Grammy Awards, including four of the show’s biggest awards — best new artist, record of the year, album of the year, and song of the year. For the record-breaking occasion, Eilish sported her characteristic lime green roots and a very on-brand Gucci outfit. Lilly Singh, Mereba, and Josephine Relli were inspired by the same citrus hue and opted for gowns in varying shades of lime green.
Ariana Grande took over the red carpet (quite literally) in a giant Giambattista Valli ballgown. Fit for music royalty, the voluminous grey Cinderella dress was only one of three looks she sported throughout the night. Shania Twain and Tess Holliday also brought next-level tulle looks to the carpet. The country singer rocked a short black romper layered with sheer tulle, while the model wore a bubblegum pink dress decorated in fresh strawberry appliques.
Lizzo was Old Hollywood glamour personified in a white strapless Atelier Versace gown. Accessorized with a white faux fur stole and layered in diamond necklaces, the “Truth Hurts” singer looked more decadent than ever. Easily one of the music industry’s best-dressed stars, Dua Lipa also brought her winter whites to the red carpet in a silk maxi skirt and matching bustier-style top designed by Alexander Wang.
In one of the most eye-catching looks of the night, FKA Twigs stood out from the crowd in a pink and black hooded gown by Ed Marler that delivered a true gothic fantasy. Camila Cabello explored her dark side in a high-low Versace dress featuring a black lace skirt that added a gothic sensibility to the ensemble.
