Not only has this week graced us with New York Fashion Week, putting us in the right frame of mind to appreciate and digest some quite bold and daring statement outfits, but the Grammys followed NYFW in suit. The Grammys is the perfect place for celebrities and artists to push the boundaries and test the limits of the red carpet. Before the musical acts for the night put on their stage costumes, we had a look at their entrance outfits and oh boy were there some ‘fashion statements’.
Wears Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci.
Once again, Adele absolutely slaying an elegant look which she took to the stage in to receive her award for album of the year. The dress is very flattering on her (slight Princess Fiona from Shrek vibes but it works) and the elegant style of the dress completely masks Adele’s party animal persona that was all know lies underneath that Givenchy gown.
Wears an Armani Privé look with a Roger Vivier clutch and jewels by Chopard and David Webb.
Rihanna perfectly exposes her tattoos with her red carpet outfit this year. The orange and black combination could be quite halloweeny but Rhi Rhi makes it work. The skirt looks like she could be hiding people underneath it and her crop top is tailored strategically around her sternum tattoo.
Wears a shiny leather ensemble with feather embellishments and plenty of underboob by Alex Ulichny.
Yes yes yes yes. Lady Gaga is notoriously crazy on the red carpet and her outfit this year was everything we wanted and more. Leather, chains, heels no other human could walk in and boobs. Also, take note of the chest area that is visible in Gaga’s outfit – apparently it was the trend this year to have outfits which exposed this area. Gaga looks like she’s just stepped off a motorbike and is about to rule your world with some insane sex.
Cee Lo Green
No one knows what the heck he’s wearing.
What why how who? We feel like Cee Le Green just thought ‘right, what ridiculous outfit can I wear this year?’. Is he trying to be the Trump Tower? A chocolate bar wrapper? Who knows.
Wearing Zuhair Murad Couture
Absolutely owning the red carpet in this emerald, fitting dress – Celine is nearly 50 and still looks incredible no matter what she wears. The dress exposes her chest and the slit is subtle but sexy.
Wearing a Julien Macdonald dress and David Yurman jewels
Obviously got the inner boob memo. Demi’s dress looks very classic and flattering on her. It exposed her curves in a perfect way and her long hair looks so effortless which works beautifully with the dress.
Wearing Elie Madi Jimmy Choo Max platforms
New drinking game, every time you see a key hole cut dress on the red carpet, drink. But, Carrie Underwood looks on fire with this slightly sheer red gown. The sleeves of the dress are dramatic which sort of work but would have worked better if they weren’t there as they sort of take away from the rest of the dress and its detail.
Wearing Ralph & Russo
Oh look, that special section of chest which almost every female celebrity had on show at this year’s grammys. I feel like we haven’t seen JLo this covered up on the red carpet in quite a while but somehow, she still makes it look sexy… HOW. We’re just not really sure about the creation that going on around her neck… Is it tissue paper? Is it a flower? Who knows but she still looks to die for.
Wearing Tom Ford
Blonde Katy Perry we LOVE. Her red carpet outfit, not so much. She sort of looks like a very expensive paint brush… From the waist up everything works. The chrome top half of the dress goes perfectly with her makeup and hair, but as you move down, a Sesame street character emerges from her bottom half.
Wearing custom Bryan Hearns
Elegant leather goddess. Laverne either looks like she’s going to feature in some intense BDSM porn in the morning and be in a business meeting by noon. Her make-up is smoky and sultry and her hair is slick and her entire look works perfectly.
Rocking a plain white t-shirt, black pants and shoes, Skrillex looks like he does every single of day of the week. He is showing the beauty of the Grammy’s red carpet – there are no pressures, you can either go all out (Cee Lo Green with his take on The Trump Tower) or go back to basics, as Skrillex has shown us with his outfit choice.
Wearing Vivienne Westwood
Where does the red carpet start and finish? Charli literally looks like she is wearing the red carpet this year. She looks very elegant and the shape of the top of the dress is stunning.
Wears a Badgley Mischka dress, Neil Lane jewels, and Edie Parker clutch.
Imagine the flamenco dancer emoji but in a green dress and with blonde hair and you have Tori Kelly at the Grammys. However, Tori owns that green dress and beachy blonde waves.
