The Grammys are always one of our favourite fashion extraganzas, because you never know what to expect. While some go fairly casual (a la Anna Kendrick’s two-piece check suit) or the pretty, classic route with gowns that wouldn’t look out of place on the Oscars red carpet, our fave musicians go for nothing short of Extra! Here, our favourite, most extra and angelic looks of the night.
We love us some SZA, and the soft-spoken R&B singer looked like a literal angel in this Cher-esque, Atelier Versace ethereal white gown. We love her shy, down-to-earth vibe, but this girl came to SLAY the night.
Chrissy Teigen literally blinded us with her beauty in this megawatt silvery, tinsel-y dress. We love the insane sparkle, bold skirt slit and unexpected mid-calf length that totally stood out in a sea of floor-length gowns.
With a train that rivalled that of Rihanna’s 2016 Met Gala look, Lady Gaga went full Gothic Glamour with this Armani Prive black lace jumpsuit and ball skirt. This creation featured a sheer lace bodice and a dramatic, outsized skirt with a thigh-high slit that showed off her signature Mother Monster platform shoes.
And when Gaga took to the stage with Mark Ronson for a stirring rendition of Joanne/Million Reasons, the Lady had another magical fashion moment in a stunning pink chiffon gown that merged with angel wings set atop her piano.
We rarely see Eve anywhere ever, so it was a delight to see the rapper show up at the Grammys in this fabulous Naeem Khan bedazzled pantsuit that subtly channelled the great David Bowie. She looked super-chic, feminine and edgy rock n’ roll all at once.
Janelle Monae never disappoints on the red carpet and always delivers a new and exciting riff on her trademark black and white tux look. This time out, Monae dazzled in a colourful floral embroidered Dolce & Gabbana suit. We also loved her two-tone, Cruella De Vil-inspired hair.
She may be small, but Cardi B is nothing if not mighty. The fan-favourite rapper was a prom-queen dream in this frothy white dress by Ashi Couture with a subtle train. Total fairy princess vibes, and her hair and makeup was totally on-point, too.
Oh, hi Ashanti! Yet another singer we haven’t heard from in a while, and we were floored by her majestic golden gown with a *major* flared skirt that sparkled from every angle.
Lana Del Rey may get some flack for this OTT look, but we are here for those who take risks, and LDR did so in this custom Gucci gown decked out in a universe of silver stars. The topper: she wore a literal halo of stars on her head, and for that, we give her props. Because, when do you ever get the chance to wear a HALO? You do you, Lana.
Now, over to you: Who was your favourite of the night?
