Not only are the Grammys one of the most important nights of the year for the music industry, but they are also a time for celebrities and fashionistas to flaunt their best looks. The Grammys red carpet is known for out-of-the box style choices from the biggest names in fashion. This year’s ceremony did not disappoint. Here are some of the best looks from the 2022 Grammys:
Lady Gaga: Lady Gaga is the undisputed empress of fashion. She is notorious for having worn a dress made of raw meat, among other daring style choices. When she serves, she serves a full meal, and this Grammys look does not disappoint. While this fit is not as avant-garde as some of the ones that made her an icon, her black and white Armani Privé gown accentuated with Tiffany & Co. diamonds is classic Hollywood glamour at its finest. She looks poised, polished, and put together.
Lil Nas X: The “Montero” rapper delivered a white Balmain suit encrusted with pearls that pays homage to Rock and Roll icon Elvis Pressley. Lil Nas X’s outfit goes the extra mile with a giant embroidered butterfly, matching platform boots, and tasteful blue eye makeup. It is a perfect example of the mix of classy, campy, and unapologetically queer that the artist has become known for.
Japanese Breakfast: Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner’s Valentino Haute Couture mini popped on the red carpet with its bold yellow hue. Twitter users playfully pointed out that the textured detailing of the dress looks like potato chips. The look is fresh, noteworthy, and stylish, just like the “Best New Artist” nominee herself. Rounded out with twin pearl-accented top knots and white platform heels, Zauner’s look is one of the most memorable of the night.
Billie Eilish: Like Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish is known for outside-the-box outfits. While this Rick Owens deconstructed trench coat getup is not the most creative we have seen from her, it channels Eilish’s trademark effortless cool. The sock-boots, sunglasses, and coat-dress come across as polished despite the dark tones and draping fit.
Saweetie: Saweetie made a big splash at this year’s Grammys in not one, but two red carpet looks. Her first, a hot pink Valentino two-piece is a modern spin on a classic silhouette. The boxy bra-top with an eye-catching bow and the over-the-elbow gloves are both charming and sexy, and the glitzy choker, earrings, and bracelets pull the ensemble together. The second outfit, a black Oscar de la Renta with a black ruffled skirt and a jeweled bodice, however, was a bit plain and uninspired in comparison to her stellar Valentino appearance.
BTS: The most popular band in the world did not disappoint. Dressed in coordinated suits designed by Louis Vuitton, the band popped in their outfits’ unusual color palette. The unique combinations of beige, white, maroon, navy, teal, and lilac emphasize each member’s personal style while keeping the group’s overall look classy and streamlined. With not a tousled strand of hair out of place, the pop powerhouse band’s Grammys look is picture-perfect.
